Episode 28 is all sorts of topsy-turvy as the Jumping the Shark crew does everything in reverse. First co-hosts Danielle Riendeau and Brandon Cackowski-Schnell along with Producer Todd Brakke and GameShark.com E-i-C Bill Abner sit down and chat with Jon-Paul Dyson, Director of the International Center for the History of Electronic Games and Vice President for Exhibit Research and Development for the Strong National Museum of Play. We talk about the museum's work in cataloguing the history of electronic games as well as the challenges of such an enormous task. Then we talk about what we've been playing and Bill brings the weight of his righteous fury upon NCAA 2011's Dynasty mode and the reviews that overlooked its most critical flaws.
