No, but seriously.
- Not playing Destiny. Obviously. I was surprised by a TV ad I saw for it the other night, though; the ad didn't show any game footage -- as game ads tend not to these days, which is stupid but an entirely separate discussion -- but made the game look like it had a lot more "personality" than I had been led to believe in the past. I still don't want to play it as I have little interest in Bungie's particular style of both gameplay and sci-fi, but the ad actually made me pay attention for the first time in ages. I see the fact that I really had no idea that the game had any personality and character about it as something of a failure of both the marketing machine and the press. Why didn't I know that? People have certainly been banging on about it for long enough.
- Perhaps, though I'm not really the person to ask, since most triple-A titles these days don't interest me. It would make sense for the biggest budget, most technically impressive games to be built for the most powerful hardware -- but it also makes sense for these business-minded publishers to go after the largest possible target market. That means catering to the people who are still using their PS3s and, to a lesser extent -- Microsoft's last-gen console seems to have died out a lot quicker than Sony's -- 360s. Those two goals oppose one another somewhat right now, since building a cross-gen game often necessitates holding back more than you would otherwise. I can't say it really bothers me one way or the other, though; as I say, after finding numerous triple-A titles over the last few years to be more than a little underwhelming, I've thrown in the towel with trying to keep up with them and instead retreated to my favourite niches.
- Have you not played GTA V already? If not, it's worth your time. The single player is good stuff -- plus the inclusion of Trevor makes underpants mayhem actually sort of justifiable -- and I feel the online still has a certain degree of potential, though I must confess to having never returned after the disastrous first week of service. If I know people who will be playing the PC version, I might give it another shot; if not, I've been there, done that. It's an experience worth having, though.
