25 Years of Gaming

Posted on June 7, 2018

Listen to the show!

This week on the show, it’s that time of year again… that’s right, RADIOTHON! JOY 94.9 needs your help to stay OUT, LOUD, PROUD and ON AIR. To celebrate 25 years of JOY, on Checkpoint we decided to celebrate 25 years of gaming, with an entire crew of us in studio to talk about the video games that inspired us and shaped us into the gamers we are today. Join an all-star crew of presenters and writers, as host Luke is joined by your favourites Elliot, Cam, Rachel, Jake and Edith, along with newcomers to the program, Jason, Jian and Sam as they share their memories of the video games that they grew up with and talk about the reasons why they are such  big video game lovers today. Plus, we live streamed the entire episode on Facebook playing a bunch of video games! You can watch the video and see what we were up to right here on our Facebook page, so don’t feel like you missed out!
