Welcome to season two of Play Dead, the first and only podcast that looks exclusively at death in video games! Hosted by Gabby DaRienzo, Play Dead explores the different ways that death is used in video games and the meanings it has for both players and developers.
In the season two premiere of Play Dead, Gabby talks death and eSports games with The Score’s Daniel Rosen and professional Counter-Strike: GO player Stephanie Harvey. They discuss how death can often be used as a tactic in competitive games, and how the eSports community honours and memorializes deceased players.
