Free Play Ep. 20 | Not-So-Violent Video Games


About This Episode

Did you know that there are games without a single shred of violence in them? Scout’s honor, I looked it up online just to be sure. Turns out that contrary to popular belief, not every game culminates in a chicken dinner.

Passive, peaceful games are a thing, and you can build farms, climb mountains, solve puzzles and farm goop on every major platform.

Though there are a time and place for Call of Duty, there is also more to gaming than KDs and headshots ant hats what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
