Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I've often wondered why is the X-Box first in the list. It's not the best selling or most popular, even if you just consider the US. It's not alphabetical. Even reverse alphabetical would but the Switch before the PlayStation, so it's not that either.

        Hmm... a fair question. When this feature first started back in 2015, we were coming off the 360/PS3 generation when Xbox was the clear frontrunner, but that is very much not the case anymore. It might be time to switch things up.
