'''Heart of Gaming''' was a show hosted by Leon Thomas which is hosted on Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. The show has a very unique style of using old StockFootage, usually from films in the PublicDomain. This footage is narrated over by the host, who talks about whatever game is featured on the show, or concerns on gamer culture. The show ended in July 2012 with its 70th episode.
