The Game Awards have become one of the biggest gaming events of the year. Geoff Keighley has grown it from obscurity into an event that rivals the perennial titans like E3. The guys break down both the award winners as well as some of the big announcements this year. We also talk some VALORANT drama, and producer Kali joins us to play ‘Spot the real one.’ On this week’s Patient Gamer, we break down the Valve-classic Left 4 Dead 2. All of that and more on this week’s CheckpointXP On-Demand!
