You'll have to handle it with kid gloves. Any superficial damage could render it useless.

So disc as they are right now? Remember when CD's were coming out and they said they were going to be "indestructible"? Rofl

I nearly lost a DVD full of pictures because of a tiny scratch. It takes a much smaller scratch to destroy a Blu-Ray so I imagine these things will stop working if someone blows on it.

It's important to note that Blu-Ray discs are coated with this anti-scratch stuff called Durabis (or other similar proprietary solutions) that makes them much more scratch resistant than CD's or cheap DVD's. I've accidentally scratched some DVDs in my time (or had my PS1 and PS2 scratch them for me), but I've never scratched a Blu-Ray.

Maybe the PS3 is better at handling discs. Maybe I've become less retarded. All I know is that the stuff works.

THAT'S A LOT OF NUTS

THAT'LL BE FOUR BUCKS FIFTY BABY, YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT!?

Edit: Oh shit, I totally missed that @xyzygy made the exact same joke. However I used letters instead of numbers, and added some !?s, therefore my attempt is superior.

I have zero issue with jagged edges in games, so generally I just have it off. My computer is plenty capable of having them on, but I get an extra 20fps or so out of having them off, so I'd rather go from 50to 70 than have smooth edges.

As much as these lists are equally pointless and fascinating, there were a few that just made me go "They were fun / enjoyable, but... best?". Such as:

11: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

23: Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance

35: Planetside 2

37. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

40. Dishonored

66. Rising Storm

70. Tribes: Ascend

79. Borderlands 2

96. Diablo III

I guess my opinions just don't align with those of the person who wrote the list.

But DUDE...

Diablo III is not the 96th best game ever made.

It just isn't.

...

OR IS IT

I mean, it's great that they are doing all this stuff...

But it's so reactive to being essentially booed off stage at E3. Fuck Microsoft for even thinking the things they were saying at the time were positive.

It's like having the man who stabbed you 50 times pull you up off the ground and rush you to hospital.

"Like... thanks man. But you fucking stabbed me".

I played mostly PC games back then, and GoldenEye was still a fantastic game.

It hasn't aged well, but neither has Quake.

"Zynga has redefined entertainment and brought social gaming to the mainstream"

SOCIAL GAMING HAS ALWAYS BEEN PART OF THE MAINSTREAM. SOCIAL GAMING IS MAINSTREAM.

Pardon me.
