Feedback Loop: Running with watches, dissing on games and unpacking net neutrality
Welcome to Feedback Loop, a weekly roundup of the most interesting discussions happening within the Engadget community. There’s so much technology to talk about and so little time to enjoy it, but you have a lot of great ideas and opinions that need to be shared! Join us every Saturday as we highlight some of the most interesting discussions that happened during the past week.
The weekend is finally here! More importantly, it’s time for the latest edition of Feedback Loop. This week, we ask some questions about net neutrality, look for recommendations on running watches, talk about the worst video games we’ve ever played and share some of our favorite characters we’ve encountered. You can read all this and more past the break.
What’s net neutrality all about?
Net neutrality is a complicated and confusing subject. And the FCC waffling between being for it and against it further complicates matters. With so many differing views, how are we as consumers supposed to make sense of it all? We’re doing our best in this discussion. Is there something you want to know? Head over here and ask away.
Running watch recommendations
Wearables are all the rage right now, encompassing everything from oxygen monitors for aspiring climbers, to bracelets that let you pay with Bitcoin and everything in between. However, Dana wants to keep it simple and is looking for running watch recommendations. What sort of device will help power her through her next marathon? If you have some recommendations, help her out.
What is the worst game you’ve ever played?
A Microsoft-backed documentary team uncovered thousands of copies of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in the New Mexico desert. It was allegedly one of the worst video games in history. Over in the Engadget forums, Frank thought this was a perfect time to recall some of the worst video games he’s ever played. Some of you chimed in with your own nominations for worst video game ever. Take a look and share your thoughts.
Favorite video game characters
Speaking of games: We’ve all played a lot of games. Some have been pretty great and some have been really horrible. In light of Frank’s discussion above, I wanted to reflect on some of our fonder memories. What are some of the most memorable encounters you’ve had with NPCs, or non-playable characters, in a game world?
