Really enjoyed the show, guys! Looking forward to more debates like this! 

I voted for Kelsey because I came in agreeing with his position and my mind was not changed by Bil's arguments. It seemed like on Bil's side he was bringing up examples that showed that the status quo is already conforming to the state he was arguing for.

I am grateful that you both set aside accessibility as completely different issue from difficulty at the start of the discussion, because I see difficulty and accessibility get conflated with each other A LOT.

For me the linchpin of Kelsy's argument was something he stated a few times: "Not every game is for every person." Frankly, this can be a hard pill to swallow but it is extremely important if you like variety and choice in games. Rather than wishing Bloodborne had an easy mode because I tend to enjoy easy games, I'm grateful that those who take pride in joining the 14% can do so, while I can make the choice to avoid the franchise entirely. There are many easy games out there, and in fact I think the argument can be made that games have trended easier over the past decade or so (which is part of why Souls-Bournes and their ilk are so special to the thrill-seekers out there).

You both did a great job, and this was actually one of your best episodes ever. Looking forward to more of this type of content.

Thanks so much for the feedback Shawn! Bil and I were both pretty nervous about this one (Chris was unfazed!). We would like to do more shows like this, but they are much more work than a normal show so we need to space them out a bit. Really appreciate the thoughtful comment.
