Happy Wednesday! What games are you playing lately? I’ve started playing Fitness Boxing and I also bought Ring Fit Adventure, both for Nintendo Switch. I’m really enjoying Fitness Boxing‘s workouts, which are motivational, brief, and set to music like Carly Rae Jepsen, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson. I’m replaying the story mode of both GTA V and Watch Dogs 2 after trying out GTA Online and realizing how much of a grind it is to make money through its businesses, such as gunrunning and selling vehicles.

What does death mean when it’s not permanent? Can it still make you cry if your character regenerates? Can it be meaningful? Or is it necessarily just an annoyance, a product of “failing” at gaming? In games “The End” is hardly ever true. It’s just “The End” of that attempt, but your character will resurrect itself. Time will turn back. Nothing is forever in games.

Or it can be gory and impressive, characters dying on the battlefield in a blaze of glory. So, we’ve shared our favorite moments of gaming death, but we’re excited to hear yours!
