To me, they complement each other. Sometimes I want to use the (mostly) pain-free consoles and just play a thing even if I'm paying a small premium for it, sometimes I like the open (or at least configurable) nature of a PC game and the accomplishment of squeezing that last drop of performance out of it.

At the end of the day, though, it's about those hot 'sclusies. I like to have my bases covered and be able to play whatever catches my eye. Within reason, of course... I'd like to own every platform, but considering that my wallet made a cartoon "wheeze" sound effect while dust and moths flew out the last time I opened it, that ain't a-happening.

More than I can remember, but a special mention to WWE '12 and '13, and a thanks to Dan for recommending me '13 in particular. I'm having an absolute blast playing through the Attitude mode and basking in nostalgia. (also, all these years since Wrestlemania 2000 and I swear Ken Shamrock's AI is still out to get me)

@ateatree: Oh man, now I have to do it:

In January the future was so bright

The release calendar was looking really tight

And the new consoles looked so damn neat

Tomb Raider's re-release could not be beat

Now the game landscape is cracked and torn

We're all just looking forward to Bloodborne

How can one French studio

Fuck up so many times?

Yves Guillemot

Fix Assassins Creed

Do we all

Have to plead

It is hard

Hard to see

Putting trust

In Ubi

GO!

Destiny had a chance

Well, it really did

A loot driven FPS to please the kids

As for Titanfall

It only had one job

To be Call of Duty but with big robots

Destiny had no content to make it shine

People dropped Titanfall in record time

What the hell is going on?

Can't blame those failures on Ubi

Not to keep

On Ubi

But seriously

Fix AC

That's fucked up

Remember 3?

At least Far Cry

Is nifty

Sure, the games are alright... but what about the kids? (whoa-oh!)

The fuck?

No, no, seriously: The fuck?

I'm looking forward to this just to see what the hell it's going to be. I also like the idea that Telltale is on a mission to make an adventure game out of EVERYTHING.

@corevi: I actually did for a while, but couldn't get into it. (Diablo 3 is my ARPG drug of choice)

I had forgotten how massive the skill tree was, though. Holy jumping mother o' god in a sidecar with chocolate jimmies and a lobster bib.

Good advice has been given already, so I'll just say: Don't kick yourself over it. Everybody has to be new to a thing at some point or another.

I've been playing games for well over 20 years (oh god, what am I doing with my life), and I still get taken aback by party management and particularly big skill trees. It's a lot to take in.

Not surprising that two fungus zombie stories came out so closely to each other, what with cordyceps being a rallying point for the "ZAMBIE APACALAPSE IS CAMING" crowd.

Of course, as somebody who loved TLoU and was just as entrenched in zombiemania at its height as the people I just hypocritically made fun of seconds ago, that novel sounds like it's right up my alley.

That's awesome of ya! I'd be down for some Street Fighter 4.
