I could see in my peripheral vision he too was soaking up the action laid out before us, but what I first perceived to be mutual appreciation turned out to be something else altogether as he said to me: " I had this on PC. Seriously, it's rubbish – a GTA wannabe."
Obviously I laughed it off; afraid any conflicting opinions or factual adjustments might rub him the wrong way, but mostly as a result of his blazing error of judgement. Thankfully the other people I encountered throughout the event were less inclined to verbalise their half-baked impressions, and so only a muffled hum fell over the crowd - a series of grinning nods and grunts seemed to express one's feelings exactly."
