This week, to help keep the teenager occupied with most of her summer plans cancelled, we bought ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizon’, which might  have necessitated the purchase of a Switch upon which to play it.  I’m reminded of twenty years ago, when I visited the Wal-Mart at midnight to pick up an N64 and a copy of ‘Wrestlemania 2000″, which kickstarted my purchase a a new video game each year to keep up with wrestling rosters.  Either way, the constant high-pitched mutterings haven’t driven me around the bend (yet), but it did spur today’s eighth-gen query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) picked up ‘Spider-Man‘ for the PS4 not so long ago, but that’s the last thing I purchased, asking: What’s the last new video game you bought?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Last physical game.. My memory doesn’t go back that far. Maybe Dragon Age.
    Digital copy, maybe Divinity: Original Sin.
