  1. What are some games that you have played that were super well researched and educational, but were not designed with education as their primary purpose?
  2. As far as realism goes, I feel like vegetation has long imposed major challenges for developers, but it is looking a lot better in recent years. What is the most impressive vegetation you have seen in games? For me, it is the vegetation in the Trespasser DLC of Dragon Age: Inquisition.
  3. Are there any games that you know a developer talked about or worked on and then abandoned that you wish they’d finished? I heard Ken Levine talking about one once that would have involved extracting characters from cults without their agreement that I thought would have been interesting.
  4. If you have a disc-less console, when do you uninstall your games? Directly after you finish them? Or just when your space is getting full and you want to install something new?
  5. Are there games that are an “event” to you to play, and that you consistently put other things on hold for? Like whenever I play a BioShock game, I usually just abandon other parts of my nighttime routine until I am done.
  6. You're right. What I want most from TLOU III would be for Neil Druckmann to tell the story he wants to tell 🙂
  7. Do you sit through video game credits? I generally do on a first playthrough, just in case there is after credits content.
  8. I often find myself frustrated with open world games presenting problems in game that I feel have obvious, logical solutions, and then no way to implement them. The Outer Worlds I think has done a great job not doing this. Almost every time I think of a solution to a problem with a faction or whatever, there is a way to do it. What other games do well with this?
  9. What are some games that feature great covers of popular music—especially original covers madefor the games?
  10. If you were offered $1 million to never play your favorite game again, would you take it?
  11. What are some video games where a character sings in the game? Some examples are Elizabeth in BioShock Infinite, Ellie and Joel in TLOU 2, and Leliana in Dragon Age Origins.
  12. Lest we forget, Omicron spike wasn't that long ago. I would not be surprised if that also has caused production problems.
  13. What is an example of a time a video game developer cut corners and thought you wouldn’t notice? For instance, in BioShock games, I noticed they reuse the city skylines of Rapture and Columbia, i.e. if you look out of the window to your left, and then the window to your right, you will see repetition in the scenery. I don’t understand how they could not think the gamer would discover this.
  14. At what points in a game do you make a manual save? What motivates you to do it? I find most of the time when I save a game manually, it is because everything is working okay and not bugging at that moment in time, so I am making a save because I am concerned about losing progress if something bugs shortly thereafter. I also will manually save after finishing anything challenging and time-consuming. Sometimes I will save too if there is beautiful scenery/weather, as I did not know how to make screenshots on PS3.
  15. When you run into a bug in a video game, are there certain standard protocols you will try to fix it, because you have noticed they often work? For instance, if I run into a bug in a video game, I will often attempt to load a different area and/or a different game screen, as forcing the bugged zone to reload sometimes fixes it.
  16. What are some remasters that were not just disappointing, but actually worse than the original games?
  17. What are some games where every time you play them, you notice new details—even if you thought you were thorough on prior playthroughs?
  18. What are some games with impressive little background details you could easily miss? In the Outer Worlds, I saw Nyoka trying to teach Parvati how to shoot a gun, explaining it was just a machine. In Parvati’s room later, I noticed she’d hung a poster with an engineering diagram of a gun.
  19. What are some games that did incredibly subtle foreshadowing? For example, in Dragon Age: Origins, in the party banter at some point one of the characters indicates that Morrigan is planning something (which she is). But I would never have caught that on my first playthrough.
  20. There has been rumor (?) lately about PS3 emulation on PS5 via PS Plus. I would love to be able to play PS3 games on PS5, but I don’t see myself wanting to pay for a subscription for it. I’d rather just buy another PS3 if mine dies. Thoughts?
  21. I might play Elder Scrolls Online soon. Does anyone have any useful tips and advice to offer a newbie?
  22. What are some video games that were based on films that were actually really amazing?
  23. What game franchises have you quit? What would make you come back?
  24. Do you deliberately handicap your character (i.e. by choosing harder skills) or make in-game decisions with harsh consequences to make games harder?
