Since most of you eat, breathe, and sleep gaming, we've put together a list of the best video game podcasts that are currently airing on iTunes and other audio platforms. Some of these podcasts cater to specific gaming communities, such as League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Minecraft and others.

Gaming makes for a great podcast subject, as there are so many things to talk about in the world of video games. There are reviews and discussions of new releases and DLC, nostalgic looks back on older games, talk of upcoming titles, and so much more. Many gaming podcasts even stray outside the subject of video games, covering things like comics, movies, television and so on. Major gaming brands like IGN, Machinima, and Joystiq all have their own gaming podcasts, but there are so many other good ones featured on this list that are worth checking out as well.

Including Rocket Pants, Giant Bombcast, and more, this list of video game podcasts currently airing new episodes is the best guide to the gaming podcast world. 

Vote for your favorite video game podcasts that you've listened to and loved, and downvote any you feel aren't really worth checking out.
