Ah summer! When everything seems to slow down, even game releases. It’s a good time to get through your video game backlog, while we wait for fall’s usual bombardment of new titles. We share what are our current must play games in our backlog, how we balance playing older games vs new games, the benefits of playing games long after release and more.
This week in news: How the gaming industry is tackling conflict minerals, World of Warcraft cinematic controversy (rip Teldrassil) and parents are hiring Fortnite coachs to train their kids.
This week’s topic was inspired by Polygon’s Backlog Week.
