I don't have anything new to add, but Bioshock, Braid, Fez, and Portal all came to mind immediately for me.

I would like to put up a belayed headstone for my laptop that died in February, my Dell XPS M150. 2008-2013. I played a lot of Mass Effect and Witcher, as well as a bunch of older games from my Steam library on it. It took me through the entire P4 Endurance Run and all of University. Its motherboard fried after living 3 lifetimes of use. Good night, sweet prince.
Fashionable clothing fits well and generally enhances the look of someone with a body thats been kept in shape, so I like wearing that kind of stuff.
I shop for clothes once or twice a year, and buy nice things at 50%-70% off. I dont spend very much in the grand scheme of things but "very much" may seem like a ludicrous amount to some (around $500 a year).
As a guy who casually likes clothes, "keeping up" isn't a problem. People tend to look down on magazines like GQ, but if you actually read them you'll know that guy fashion is all about having a core set of timeless clothes that look good for a long time. My slim-cut gray blazer is not going to go out of style...ever.
In terms of high fashion, people tend to look at it as all ego, which is unfair. Its more like art, except on the human body instead of on a canvas. I dont actually keep up with aanymy of it, and dont watch any fashion shows of any kind, but I admire the creativity. Beyond the gobstoppingly hot Victoria's Secret models I'm actually legitimately impressed by those angel outfit contraptions.
It's funny, but also a good idea, that debs are taking advantage of the frustration from players at the difference between PC & console games from the end of this generation. I'm sure many would be interested in several 2013 games being ported to the new hardware. It's the console version of getting a new graphics card and seeing how shiny your old stuff looks.
I know it's sort of the hope for the core audience (that loves a ton of games that don't gain mainstream attention) but I wonder whether this or Titanfall will actually become the new household names that Cod or Halo are right now? Lightning-in-a-bottle broad mindshare isn't as easy having a quality product from "The team that brought you...". If they're great I'm sure they'll grab 4-7 million from the gaming audience, but the way to the other side is beyond the prediction of anyone it seems.
As always, people severely underestimate the far flung future. If the OP was from the year 1900 and saw the present, he'd explode. Can you even imagine where we'll be by say...2500? Thats 5 times the amount of progress I mentioned above. AI will come, and machines will create original things. Its just a matter of time.
