    Yes I have. Although I thought it was the same as any multiplayer shoot em up style game, like Halo or Doom. I have also been vaguely aware of Player Unknown for awhile.

    Fornite has a couple of different modes, but their Battle Royal mode tends to be their most popular.

    Sometimes on Twitter I see people using words or phrases that make no sense to me, but apparently are super hip.

    I'm getting old.

    I am also currently replaying the Uncharted series on the PS4. I should probably update my VG library.

    Hah, I'm just spitballing, I have no clue. I don't try to delve too much into figuring out storytelling for Kojima or Japanese games. I've played Dark Souls 1 and 2 and while not Kojima games, are a bit too vague and require piecing together a lot from little bits of detail scattered everywhere.

    I've been playing a lot of a game called Escape From Tarkov that's still currently in beta, probably more similar to PUBG I'd say than Fortnite, but I definitely game in that space.

Death Stranding looks very pretty, but as I said I have no ****ing clue what its about or what weird message its trying to convey.

    Can be. But doesn't have to.

    God, I pity the localization teams that have to translate Kojima's disjointed ramblings. I imagine it is even more incoherent in his native tongue.

    For the record I don't see anything wrong with being an overgrown kid as long as you handle your business in real life. I did once get obsessed with playing Civilization on my PC. I just think often young men spend way too much time on the video games. It seems like it would be unhealthy.
    Any over indulgence is unhealthy. But I would prefer my neighbors to be over indulgent in video games instead of heroin or alcohol.

    I confess!

    Tell your kid to take it easy on me.
