"Hello, Internet. Welcome to GAME THEORY, where, first of all, let's just set the record straight. I like the "Sans in Ness" episode, a lot. "That's the one where Game Theory jumped the shark –" NO IT ISN'T, NO IT ISN'T! Whether or not you agree with the conclusion, you have to admit, there's a lot of evidence there that just lines up really nicely. Just sayin'."

Why I Gave the Pope UNDERTALE! (subtitled Sans visits the POPE) is the 144th episode of Game Theory and its 2nd episode on Undertale, hosted by Matthew Patrick on The Game Theorists. It was released on July 5, 2016.

Description Edit

A couple weeks ago I was invited to Rome to meet the POPE HIMSELF! And when I bring a gift to the Pontiff, I make sure it's seriously good, which is why I brought him Undertale. I wanted to take the opportunity in this episode to talk about why this game is so important, not just for me personally but for the whole gaming community. As gamers, we know who we are, but every once in a while it's important to let the world know that this community is about more than monster-hunting and level grinding. Undertale is a pretty awesome representation of where we're going as gamers, so good on you, Loyal Theorists! Stay determined and keep up the good work.

Trivia Edit

  • Prior to this episode, MatPat and other YouTubers got to meet with Pope Francis and other famous people, including George Clooney.
  • In Who is W.D. Gaster?, MatPat explained the irony that this episode's message was not to spread hate to other groups, and this episode "got hate". He also cleared up that he did not "waste time" by talking about nothing but Undertale to the Pope, instead mostly about cyberbullying at schools, how Undertale was not the "worst" gift the Pope received that day, and other reasons why he chose Undertale of all things to give to the Pope.
