There's a lot the US needs to do with their gun laws. Allowing civilians to own fully automatic weapons is pretty insane, and I'm somebody that would absolutely love to own any of the AK series rifles. Allowing civilians to get concealed carry licenses is pretty nuts too, IIRC pretty much only police and military can get that here in Canada. Even outside of concealed carry, you still can't really be out and about with a gun anyway here, you need to be transporting it to or from somewhere that you can legally use it, and have it locked up with the ammo locked up separately. Just implementing those few things in the states would do a lot for them IMO, if you further copy our laws, I think you'd see a huge drop-off in gun-related deaths after a while. It wouldn't even really take guns away from people outside of the full autos, but you don't really need to have those anyway, plus you can get semi auto variants that would be legal under new laws for a large portion of them too. Better gun laws won't really impact responsible gun owners all that much, but it would definitely hurt the irresponsible ones, and the outrage gun laws seem to cause in the states leads me to believe most of them are the irresponsible sort.
@Doos I'd generally consider a "AAA" game as a game that was made by a well known (whether or not their reputation is good) or leading developer with a top tier budget. To me, "AAA" gaming isn't a quality thing, its a money and recognition thing. Plenty of "AAA" games have been complete garbage. While I do consider it a buzzword, it does have some meaning IMO, though that meaning doesn't necessarily have an impact on the games considered "AAA". It's kind of like calling the big movies from big studios "blockbusters", more a hype and budget related thing, and less about quality really.
Now, with that said, I've never cared is a game is considered to be "AAA" or not, I play what interests me, skip what doesn't, and generally try to stay away from hype trains. I find that by doing this, I'm fairly rarely disappointed with games.
