Empathy and Schadenfreude

by jozh_godfear on
Rating: ★★★★★

Hi. Long time Final Fantasy player here. I love this podcast. Jeff and Ryan, thank you for suffering in the pursuit of entertainment. Your sacrifices are appreciated.

I adore this show!

by Epic Film Guys on
Rating: ★★★★★

I started off playing Final Fantasy on the NES back when I was about 9 or 10. Listening to Jeff and Ryan play through the original game is not only hilarious, it brings back so many great memories (and reminds me how frustrating it is!!). It's also funny and an amazing way to re-live some classic RPGs. Can't wait to hear you cover other games in the series. Great show guys. Subscribed INSTANTLY after episode one.

So Much Fun

This kind of stuff is exactly what I would do if I had more time, so listening to these hilarious dudes do it is pure joy.

A great Podcast

Rating: ★★★★★

I just finished the first season. And it is a great example of two men slowly descending into madness! The best part is that they thought they knew how bad it would be. I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the seasons.

I Love These Guys

by John Ruml on
Rating: ★★★★★

Humor, positivity, and a pleasantly surprising amount of philosophizing about Del Taco. Final Fantasy IV (Season Two) is one of my favorite games of all time and it was a joy to hear them rip it to shreds.

a masterpiece

these guys are hilarious. it’s like an episode of seinfeld.

"Who's Chewing What" with noise cancelling headphones changed my life

by the_mohomie on
Rating: ★★★★★

Everyone else has already mentioned how great the Final Fantasy related content is, but the real gems are in their digressions that cover everything from Oz to their excitement regarding Del Taco and the various existential crises in between. It's easy to tell that Jeff and Ryan put a lot of care into editing these episodes with the inclusion of their fun gimmicks like their miniseries, "Who's Chewing What", their time travelling journey of season 2, and much much more. Give these two a listen.

Play along or just listen

by troytlepower on
Rating: ★★★★★

This is a great show to listen to as you play Final Fantasy yourself, or just to listen to. It's totally cool if you've never even played a Final Fantasy game, as the hosts do a great job of guiding you through the story, in a funny, rambling way.

Season 3 best yet

by MikeWrangles on
Rating: ★★★★★

I’ve been listening since season 1, which was a great start. Season 2 meh, but season 3 has been amazing. Thank God they’ve decided to sleep like adults. A must listen if you have ever played a FF game.

Always looking forward to it :)

Rating: ★★★★★

I listen to a lot of podcasts, whether I’m playing video games or the slower times while I’m working, I have a backlog of Marc Maron, Rooster Teeth, and Kevin Smith podcasts but I actually find myself relistening to this one quite a bit. I can’t wait for FF7.

Who would do this to themselves?

by Grupperman on
Rating: ★★★★★

This is the worst podcast I have ever listened to. It is hour after hour of listening to two guys make the worst choices of their lives. I can’t recommend it highly enough

Why are they doing thins? No one knows but we seem to enjoy their pain so hopefully it keeps coming!

Hilarious nostalgia and absurdity

by @TRegPhysics on
Rating: ★★★★★

Jeff and Ryan playing through the Final Fantasy games is a hilarious romp through a haze of nostalgia, frustration, and the slow yet steady unwinding of their sanity as they muscle through the aspects of these beloved games that we’d overlooked in those olden golden years.If you’re wanting to experience these games again but don’t want to play the first 2 hours of the game only to give up leaving the 87th barely-finished save time, then this podcast is for you. Also, Jeff, Ryan. You’re wrong about baked broccoli. While it definitely doesn’t belong on pizza, if baked correctly, broccoli (and cauliflower) is delicious. 1. Melt an obscene amount of butter.2. Salt and pepper the butter. 3. Add minced garlic to the butter. 4. Toss the broccoli/cauliflower mix in the butter. 5. Put into a baking dish. 6. Bake 400 for 25-30 min. They should be soft, yet firm, but not crunchy. The key here is the obscene amount of butter, which is how we do things in the south. Butter it up enough and it’s delicious!

Wow I’m actually impressed.

I found it immensely enjoyable to listen to you two trudge desperately through all of final fantasy one. What dedication to.. the cause? Well whatever it was, it was magic. I am listening to season two now and it is just as oddly depressingly fun and satisfying as the first. Good job guys.

These guys are so funny their journey is soul destroying but definitely interesting to listen to. Keep up the great work guys.

The Meaning of Life

by MuteBanshee on
Rating: ★★★★★

Sure. This is a podcast about two guys playing Final Fantasy. And they are fun to listen to, full of emotion, full of laughs and entertainment. But this is a podcast that's about so much more than Final Fantasy. It's about life. It's about the history of the Jerky Boys, and the story of McDonald's. It's about finding out how early is too early to eat olives, and how much clotted cream you can eat before feeling sick. I love Final Fantasy, and that's what drew me in. But I stay for the little bits of life scattered in. No replicator in the universe could duplicate this podcast.

Best Video Game Podcast out there

Rating: ★★★★★

These guys have a true talent for podcasting. Their entire podcast is laid out in a documentary format where they play the games and the review their experiences. Five stars all around.

Podcasting Prodigies

by little wei guy on
Rating: ★★★★★

In life there are prodigies whose natural talent is above and beyond others in their field and I think Jeff and Ryan are that for podcasting. It feels like they naturally achieve what many podcasts struggle to do, make you feel like part of the experience. As I was listening to season 1 I didn’t feel like I was listening to a podcast I get like their friend who was being caught up after being out of town for a week. That feeling is what brought me back episode after episode. Keep on trucking.-Andres Suarez-Domit

No podcast better

by Splurge1015 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I listen to a lot of gaming podcasts, and a lot of Final Fantasy related ones. There is no better podcast if you are into these games. These guys play off each other so well. I laugh out loud constantly. Do yourself a favor and listen right meow.

I love these two chuckleheads

by Walla151 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Two guys play Final Fantasy, but probably half the funny stuff they say has little to do with the game. It’s fun to play along, though the 1/week cadence is slow for gameplay. Highly recommended.


by brannon.gromph on
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast speaks to all the things I love about the final fantasy franchise and all the things that are really, really dumb. Many times I emotionally connect to the feelings the hosts experience when they get consumed to beat a game, or beat a boss, or find some cool little connection, or think some story conceit is super dumb. I cannot recommend it highly enough

Final what?

I heard your ad on Greatest Generation and thought, what the hell. I only ever played FF7 when I was a kid but I love hearing about clotted cream and other things. Great show.

Best Final Fantasy podcast ever!

by Trev9316 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I’m really enjoying the voices in season 3. Keep up the great work guys.

Great show

by Abrack08 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Look forward to this every week, you guys are really entertaining. Unique idea for a podcast too, I've never seen one that's a recording of people chatting while actually playing a game (rather than just discussing it after playing)

Excellent Pod!

by This Issa Mist Ache on
Rating: ★★★★★

You guys are great and equally funny, which is something hard to come by! I’ve just finished playing the first Final Fantasy (origins version, because I don’t hate myself). Listening to the pod after playing it made it at least twice as enjoyable! Good luck with your next epic journey!

I hooked

Just gotta tell you that I love this stuff. The two of you are very funny

Great documentary style to playing a game

by 041744 on
Rating: ★★★★★

This is a great take on a lets play podcast, live footage of them playing intersperced with footage of them commenting on themselves while editing it all together. It gives the podcast a pretty unique feel and makes jokes a lot funnier as the hosts look back on their stupid mistakes and laugh at themselves. I'm not a huge FF fan but this podast is great.

Final Fantasy, mazes, and JRPG hubris

by justapunk on
Rating: ★★★★★

Did you play Final Fantasy on the NES or SNES? Do you listen to podcasts? Do you like entertaining banter about the gameplay and discussions reminiscent of you and your friends when you play games (including discussions you’ve likely had about these games)? Then listen to this Podcast. Also, remember to save early and often on your own adventures...

Favorite podcast in my catalog to date!!

by jhenninger53 on
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast reminds me of my shared gaming experiences with my friend back in my hay day of video gaming. While the games were different (we went back and forth with Tomb Raider) the dialog and frustration of playing is very similar. It hits home as well because I am a huge FF fan and, it is exciting for me to know that there is a season with Final Fantasy 8 in the future. Can’t wait to hear how much you will hate to love to play that one!

Just a ridiculously fun experience. Reminds me of my own marathon RPG sessions win my buddy’s back in the day.

Best podcast I’ve ever listened to! Looking forward to season 3!

More than just a Final Fantasy podcast!

by David Lydon on
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast takes me back to when I used to burn weekends and long nights playing these RPGs. Jeff & Ryan share their sadistic, magical journey with us and I thank them as I always wanted to make this attempt but now I can just sit back and hop in and out like Shadow.Jeff & Ryan’s style of editing in themselves from when they edit the podcast is often hilarious and is a great, unique podcasting format. Must listen to anyone who has enjoyed Final Fantasy games over the years.

For old school FF fans (for now)

by The jPod on
Rating: ★★★★★

If you know old school Final Fantasy like the back of your hand, this podcast is a beautiful and tragic trainwreck. Like watching your younger sibling make relationship mistakes. “NO SUZIE, AIDEN DOESNT ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT YOU” “DAMMIT JEFF DONT SOMEHOW FORGET TO SAVE WHEN YOURE LITERALLY AT A SAVE POINT”.

Come and sit on the couch with us

by Ksteven64 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Ever get so invested in a show that you’re yelling at the TV? Even though you know it’s completely pointless, you’ll still say “No, don’t go in there!” Or “Just go to sleep already!” I have yelled at my phone (and thus been totally invested) more with this podcast than any other. Jeff and Ryan put you right there in the room with them, and you feel like you did the first time you played Final Fantasy with your friends. You can really visualize them on the couch going through the joys and pains of playing, to the extent that my brain will add closed captions sometimes like: *sobs into pillow* or *punches controller buttons furiously* or even *descends into madness*. But the podcast is more than just playing the game. The guys seem to actually grind through levels of philosophy where they’ll explore life, entertainment, and mall food as they reflect on what the game, and experience playing it, teaches us about ourselves.

Save the Game!!!

by JLPoehlman on
Rating: ★★★★★

I feel like it’s the mid 90’s and I’m playing this with my friends in the basement on my parent’s house. I remember these games so vividly, but this podcast really challenges what I know or thought I knew about these games. Jeff and Ryan are great at deconstructing what works and what doesn’t in this endeavor. Best of luck to them as they go deeper down the rabbit hole. Go support them on Patreon too!!!

It’s like you’re playing through with them

by Tacotues on
Rating: ★★★★★

These jerks are hilarious and listening to them go through the FF games is the perfect meld of my podcast nerdiness and rpg nerdiness. I CANNOT WAIT for them to get to FF6

So good!

by Mr. Eric Anderson on
Rating: ★★★★★

As a fan of FF, this has become one of my favorite podcasts. It takes me back to high school when my friends would pass the controller back and forth, play for hours, and have deep, existential banter while playing JRPGs.


by chromataclysm on
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast seems to thoroughly explore my experience playing these games with that of my wife watching me play them. Everything is thoughtfully analyzed (sometimes to a fault) and the discussions these classic games instigate provide a great snapshot into the hosts' friendship. The title of the podcast aptly describes my obsessive connection to the series but they also do a pretty good job of showing why it's worth it.


by I Know Their Pain on
Rating: ★★★★★

Jeff and Ryan have put together a really funny show, whether or not you've ever played Final Fantasy. But for those who have, prepare for convulsive laughter as you re-live the highs and lows of one of the world's classic game series. These guys do a great job, even when they can't find the map.

I gotta tell ya my-dudes, I’ve been looking for a podcast that I’ll be able to say, years from now, when a friend asks if I’ve heard of NOCKOT “Oh yeah, I’ve been listening to that hit podcast since the beginning”. This is it! I can’t wait for the future eps. Keep doing what you do.Oh, and I’m def referring to your amazing pod as NOCKOT (pronounce Knock-Cot) going forward.

As someone who has played through FF1 multiple times, I can say without a doubt this is the best way to experience the game!

You should know about this

A podcast for anyone who ever stayed up all night with friends playing video games. Funny commentary, sad commiseration with the evility of NES games, and even some life lessons. You won’t want to escape this maze!

I heard about your show by way of your Jumbotron on Greatest Generation. So you can rest assured you got at least one new listener from that.I love the show! Looking forward to Season 2. I’m hoping y’all will play through FF2 next. That one is really weird, and it would make for great commentary.

Good pod guys! I’ve only listened to the first ep, but I like what you’ve got here. I hit the subscribe button on my iPhone and it said it couldn’t find the feed, so I’ll just keep manually checking in.
