The influx of randomised loot boxes into games like Shadow of War and Star Wars Battlefront II has kicked off a discussion about their inclusion in games. Discussions of multiplayer imbalance and blocked off game content ignore an important truth: loot boxes are an ethical problem. They exist largely to exploit players and create addicts.


Admire the craftsmanship but try not to watch too closely. Appearing on Asia's Got Talent, the Adem Dance crew out of Kyrgyz Republic took the stage recently in a gold buzzer audition to try and wow the judges with a performance where the Mortal Kombat costumes turned out not to even be the weirdest part.


Shroud, one of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' most popular streamers, isn't somebody who loses very often. A former Counter-Strike pro, he's rarely outsmarted or outgunned. It's not uncommon to see would-be rivals try to level the playing field with hacks. Every once in a while, he calls out cheaters on stream. Recently, however, he seems to have gotten the wrong guy. Today, he partially apologised for that.


"Hopefully, I can actually win one," YouTuber Whisper Plays breathed into his microphone before he parachuted off a plane in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. His mechanical keyboard clacked loudly as he dropped down and collected his first few items: a few packs of 9mm ammo and a P1911 pistol, which actually takes .45 ammo. "I'm not gonna lie," he whispered. "I'm a little scared."


One of the 10 million people playing Playerunknown's Battlegrounds just so happens to be me, and so I am now qualified to assess it in a video. I promise I'm being sincere when I say I consider it "The Game Of The Decade".


Picking firsts in video game history isn't easy. For example: Resident Evil was the first survival horror game. Nope, try Alone in the Dark. Oh wait, was it Sweet Home (the inspiration for RE)? Massive argument ensues. At the risk of starting his own related brawl, Alex Lemcovich of Stealth Docs has put forward his idea of the first stealth game. Care to guess?


This is it. After fleeing from their home world thousands, hundreds or dozens of years ago (depending on lore revisions), World of Warcraft's Draenei are ready to take back Argus from the Burning Legion, with the heroes of Azeroth by their side. Kind of beefy for a post-Legion expansion update, isn't it?
