I'm engrossed in Planetside 2. On the surface, it seems like nothing more than another mindless PvP frag-fest. What I love about it is this; while the cannon fodder is busy trying to rack up kills in a testosterone-fueled battle rage, a subtle player can change the course of a battle in dozens of small but significant ways.

I'm no master of strategy and tactics, by any stretch, but I've played so many games for so long that I find myself in those battle-changing moments almost by accident. And I take unseemly glee in exploiting those opportunities.

It's not a game I'd recommend for people looking for deep story or whimsy or a relaxing evening. But it's great for slapping the machismo out of a few armchair warriors.


The Walking Dead...ugh. Anyone who wants stress and crying in their life, play it.
