Friends List: Will this be the generation of first-person non-shooters?

Chris Plante co-founded Polygon in 2012 and is now editor-in-chief. He co-hosts The Besties, is a board member of the Frida Cinema, and created NYU’s first games journalism course.

Guns don't inspire people; elegantly designed first-person simulations do.

If this is your first episode, Friends List is a daily web series in which members of Polygon's editorial staff answer an important, unusual or agitating question related to video games. The goal is to give Polygon's many team members across the globe an opportunity to speak with you directly via video.

Today, I'm joined by Deputy Reviews Editor Phil Kollar to answer this question: Will this be the generation of first-person non-shooters? The episode will begin at 2:00 p.m. ET and will be available via YouTube following the recording.

Share your opinion in the comments. We'll field some questions at the end of the episode.
