RPS Countdown: To Sleep, Perchance to Game…

It’s been a long time coming, but we’ve decided it’s time to cravenly submit to the dominant form of critical discourse in the early twenty-first century. That is, list features. However, as is our wont, we will subvert the form as best we can. Which isn’t very best at all, but we’re trying, no, really, we’re trying. (“very best at all”? – Ed)
