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.

When Sony and Microsoft announced their less-than-exciting lineup of first-party launch games, I assumed the dense slate of third-party franchises would justify my next-gen purchase. Today, that's not the case. The staples of the current generation are showing their age.

If this is your first episode, Friends List is a daily web series in which press, publishers and developers answer an important, unusual or agitating question related to video games. The goal is to give both Polygon's many team members across the globe, and those involved in covering, designing and releasing games, an opportunity to speak with you.

Today, I'm joined by Polygon Video's Executive Producer Russ Frushtick to answer this question: Is 2013 the year of uninspired sequels? 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 questions at the end of the episode.
