There are a ton of games to choose from at any given moment. So why does Kotaku Editor-in-Chief Stephen Totilo play all the wrong ones? That question and many more on today’s episode of Kotaku Splitscreen.

Jason’s out this week so I take over hosting duties, joined by our esteemed boss Mr. Totilo. We try to figure out which one of us plays more games, and talk about what we like and don’t like about modern open-world game design. At one point I try valiantly to remember the name of the 1991 Game Boy game Faceball 2000, but ultimately fail. Other games discussed: The Witcher 3, Dying Light: The Following, Bedlam, Ziggurat, Street Fighter V, and Offworld Trading Company.
