    I'm least thankful for being a broke-ass university student for the majority of this console generation which made me be even more thankful for the previous generation. This ultimately created a huge backlog of games I'd like to play that I haven't got the time to. And money. Damn it.

    QOTW: What I am least thankful for is updating drivers to get new PC games to work. Take as example trying to get Battlefield 4 to work. After the 25 gb download completed I was super excited to play. NOPE, need a driver update. Okay fine. Update driver and super excited to play. NOPE forgot to delete an AMD file from the registry before I installed the newest version of the driver so my computer won't boot now. Boot in safe mode and try again. NOPE driver install freezes and have to go delete folds from C: drive and registry before I try again. Only then will my computer boot properly and Battlefield loads. Now if only DICE could get the net code working.

    Ah for fuck sakes I read the question wrong...Dammit.
  • punishment - December 2, 2013 4:46 p.m.

    I'm thankful for Humble Bundles that are slowly but surely making a console gamer like myself shift to PC. I think my backlog of PS3 and 360 games is bad, then I look at my monstrous steam library. If I got sentenced to life in prison and was able to take my PC, chances are I still wouldn't get through them all.

    DAT REFERENCES, DAT KOTH Awesome show guys, even though there barely was any news it was still fun. This week is gonna be crazy, your 24 Hour livestream, my Xbox one coming in the mail around Wednesday-Friday, and the VGX's on Saturday night, especially with Reggie making his first time appearence and rumors of an announcement with his arrival but then again the VGA/VGX's are chock filled with World Premiers How flexible is your livestream in terms of consoles and games? I would really like to see you guys murder and hate each other in some Multiplayer 3D World. As for QOTW: I am least thankful for people who push things too far into their own needs in games. Specifically speaking, Pokemon X and Y, there's apparently been a program created for online Play in which you flat out SEE your opponents Movesets, EV's, Items and such and even as far as seeing what they CHOOSE DURING THE BATTLE. Gamefreak had to shut down ranked battles and its pathetic up the balls people would go this far to make sure they win. It ruins the essense of the game and practically makes it pointless if they'll know what my next move is, but thank goodness Free battle is still up and i hope this whole program just gets destroyed.

    Execute order 66. Im thankful for references and my two favorite hosts greg henninger and ryan taljonick
  • JohnDagger - December 1, 2013 8:58 p.m.

    QOTW: The sense of overwhelming self entitlement. That's what I am least thankful for. I don't know what it is about games that cause normal functioning people to turn into horrible monsters of self entitlement like Fanboy Coop. Most people are totally rational and polite in circumstances where they don't get everything they want. Happy meal didn't come with the right toy? "Oh well, maybe next time." Missed the bus by a minute? "Darn, I'll catch the next one." A game that allows you to experience the world during the Renaissance through the eyes of a badass assassin through unbelievable characters and original mechanics? "Complete shit! Why do I have to make a separate U Play account?! I already have a Steam account. This is worse than Hitler!" I don't know what causes it, but I would be thankful to have less of it in the world.
  • GenderBender_9000 - December 1, 2013 6:08 p.m.

    I am least thankful for the lack of booth hunks at E3. Is a shirtless Nathan Drake or Chriss Redfield in short shorts too much to ask for?
  • n00b - December 1, 2013 6:04 p.m.

    I am thankfull for fan boy coop never change
  • supergiraffe - December 1, 2013 4:54 p.m.

    Fanboy Coop is great, don't let anyone try and say otherwise. I'm least thankful for all the last gen games I've been buying cheap that I know I'll never actually play.
  • SooBlazed - November 30, 2013 7:11 p.m.

    im least thankful that you will no longer be able to buy full games. Everyone is going to start selling half or quarter of a game and the rest is available via DLC. just sell me the game enough of this nonsense, buy new skins for $1, eat the inside of my.....
  • winner2 - November 30, 2013 5:39 p.m.

    I'm least thankful for seeing games on steam for lower prices than what I bought them for during the last sale.
  • EAC73 - November 30, 2013 2:35 p.m.

    When you said Butterfree Tom, was it a reference to the Pokemon King of the Hill Video, because I love that video. As of the QOTW, I'm least thankful for Dota 2 taking away so much of my time from other games, that I really want to just finish.
  • anchgu7 - November 30, 2013 12:24 p.m.

    I'm least thankful that GamesRadar is doing their 24 hour livestream the weekend before all of my final exams.
  • Sinosaur - November 30, 2013 10:05 a.m.

    Least thankful for new consoles coming out and most likely making console gaming conversations utterly pointless for me over the next few years. And the fact that even though I have a tower PC that should hold up fairly well, I still won't be able to justify buying any game near release day. I'm also super not thankful that I bought BF4 off Amazon for what I thought was a good deal, when in fact I overpaid $10 or missed out some DLC for the same price if I'd just considered looking at Origin.
  • The_Tingler - November 30, 2013 9:56 a.m.

    Least thankful for system exclusives, which means I may never get to play The Last of Us or the Uncharted trilogy just because I own every other system and made the PS3 the one I'd exclude because I didn't have the space (or an understanding significant other).
  • Shigeruken - November 30, 2013 6:42 a.m.

    I'm least thankful for arbitrary region locking. I'm fluent in Japanese, but because nintendo are pretending it's still the 90's I'm forbidden from playing dozens of great Japanese 3ds exclusives that so many publishers cbf localizing.
  • The_Tingler - November 30, 2013 9:53 a.m.

    MOTHER 3!!!
  • Shigeruken - December 4, 2013 2:08 a.m.

    At least it was possible to play that on a different region console though! You know what? SMT 4 isn't even available in the Aus/NZ region yet.
