So… I kinda read the whole longlist.
Quite happy with the shortlist. Prophet Song, The Bee Sting and If I Survive You were my top three (in that order) so I was delighted to see them make it.
Western Lane is a touching little story about grief. It’s short and quiet but I found it quite...
Yeah, I mean I probably play 80% digital (and of those, most are Game Pass games these days).
But I hate the idea of a console-maker’s storefront being the only place you can buy games. It will absolutely be abused if that’s the only option.
I hope the digital-only Series X doesn’t become the only one available. I kinda dig the cylindrical design, but not offering any consoles capable of playing discs seems a bit shitty.

Absolute scream that Padam Padam’s cultural impact has tricked the straights into thinking it was a number one.
