Take our 2015 listener survey!

It’s our fifth year of podcasting about video games. How are we doing?

As we hinted at on last year’s season finale, we’d like to hear what all of you think of the show. (Beyond all the effusive Twitter praise, of course.) To make it as easy as possible for you, we’ve put together a quick, less-than-five-minutes-long survey with a few questions about the VGH, games, and podcasts in general. We’d really appreciate it if you could take a few moments of your time and fill it out. Be completely honest; if there’s something you think we could be doing better—tell us!

As added incentive, we’ll be handing out a few Amazon gift cards to respondents (selected at random). Finally… proof that your opinions have value, and that it’s awkwardly quantifiable!

Seriously though, we’d really appreciate hearing from you.

On the way to 2015, you suddenly find yourself trapped in the realm of Nintendoom, where nothing fits in your pocket and every Amiibo is Luigi. Your only chance of escape lies in the machinegun-toting hands of—who else—Batman (voiced by Troy Baker).
