Bit of a retro one here, but since there are still corners of the internet prolapsing over a woman playing Doctor Who, it makes sense there are still sentient beings slugging it out via keyboard on which pile of chips and processors farted out by multi-billion dollar corporations (or not, in the case of the PS5) is superior to the other.
