    All I want is for regenerating-health military shooters to go away.

    Titanfall sounds interesting.
    One thing I've hated lately is games that reward exploring with death. "Oh, you stepped out of the prepared corridor onto a rocky ledge? -Boom! you are dead."

    Another list I see....from the school of "look at these games, look at them".

    I think it's arguable that bit-tech is a site of intellectual expertise bordering on obsession. People here spend time thinking about the colour of the screws they'll use to mount their ssd on custom 3d-printed standoffs. When they get the thing running, they'll go on to tweaking clock speeds, and ram timings, refresh rates (oh my!). The hardware-centric articles and news reflect this. There is an expertise in those articles, born from a lifetime of obsession...

    Then there's the gaming side. The gaming articles don't investigate games. There's no expertise beyond treating them as consumer goods with a risk/reward ratio. The tone is completely different. It's a console-deep interest in games, rather than a PC-deep interest in games - Often lists, just like this one. Meanwhile, this is what your counterparts/competitors were doing years ago - https://youtu.be/xBN3R0m31bA

    I just think it would be more fulfilling for everyone - including you - if you, a games journalist, took more interest in games.
