  1. San Andreas is really fun. I actually completed it after it got a pc version and it was the reason I got GTA 4 on release. I don't think I completed GTA 3. I played quite a bit of Vice City after I enjoyed San Andreas so much, but there's that one mission with a damn toy helicopter that I just could not get past.

  2. Aside from the indie games, looking at foreign media outlets is helpful too. E.g., IGN Japan named "Rance X" their GOTY 2018, calling it:
    "similar to Red Dead Redemption 2 but superior in every way, highlighting the difference in Japanese focus on character and drama".
    And you've probably never heard about this game, because talking about Rance is a suicide for any 'serious' journalist.

    Deracine took the second place and WILL: A Wonderful World took the third. RDR2 was fourth.

  3. 1:12:00 Both Andrew and Colonel are wrong – you own nothing whether you buy a digital copy or a physical copy (in the last twenty years). You do not own any games. If you read over the user agreement when installing the game (or Steam user agreement), you'll find out that you bought yourself a license to install and play the game – you have no ownership whatsoever.

    Of course the difference is that it's much harder to meaningfully revoke the license for games with no online components distributed via physical media.

  4. 1:26:00 What Colonel says about GOG is absolutely incorrect. Distributing GOG games (e.g. via a torrent website) is illegal, with a caveat that GOG doesn't care and doesn't check. But it is illegal, as per GOG EULA:

    "Company grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Program, but retains all property rights in the Program and all copies thereof. This Program is licensed, not sold, for your personal, non-commercial use. Your license confers no title or ownership in this Program and should not be construed as any sale of any rights in this Program. You may not transfer, distribute, rent, sub-license, or lease the Program or documentation, except as provided herein"

  5. CDProjekt owns Witcher games, not Witcher as a whole. There was this whole thing when they were attacked by the novel author and if memory serves me right, that's what was settled. Colonel is right, author did that because when they were making first Witcher game, they apparently offered him a cut of profits deal and he said "no, I don't believe this will sell, give me this set sum of money right now.", so that's what they did. Then Witcher 3 happened and Sapkowski I think was trying to get them based on that they were talking about only one game back then? Or something like that.
