A Guide to November 2013 for My Non-Gamer Friends
I spend a lot of time in an isolated bubble of nerds. Game journos, game fans, website commenters, social media communities—we live and breathe things like console launches. However, once in a while I step outside that bubble and find that I have no idea how to converse with normal people, the ones who haven’t been following next-gen coverage all year long. For some strange reason, they haven’t been budgeting for $1,000 worth of new gaming technology, rearranging their entertainment centers, or taking sides in the PS4 vs. Xbox One console war. I know, I thought it was weird too.
My non-gamer friends have no idea why everyone’s freaking out about video games this year, this month in particular. So guys: if you care to know what I’ll be talking about for the next few weeks, this is for you.
