Our Story

Critical Arcade is more than just a podcast; it’s the result of a shared passion and a journey fueled by our love for gaming. We, Nick and Dave, the driving forces behind the show, have been gamers for as long as we can remember. We bonded over a shared childhood spent in the glow of pixelated screens, battling virtual foes, and uncovering digital worlds. Over the years, our conversations about video games grew in intensity and complexity. We realized that our gaming discussions had the potential to resonate with a broader audience, and that’s how the idea for Critical Arcade was born.

Our humble beginnings as casual gamers evolved into a dedicated mission to offer something unique to the gaming community. With Nick’s infectious energy and Dave’s deep well of gaming wisdom, we embarked on this adventure. Critical Arcade became a platform where we could dissect the art of gaming, diving into narratives, visuals, audio, gameplay mechanics, and value for money—all while keeping laughter and camaraderie at the forefront. What started as a side project quickly transformed into a cherished part of our lives, and we’re grateful for every moment of this exhilarating journey.

As Critical Arcade continues to grow, we’re excited to share our passion with fellow gamers, connecting with you, our amazing audience. We invite you to join us on this ongoing adventure through the gaming universe. With each episode, we aim to entertain, educate, and celebrate the ever-evolving world of video games.
