The high-selling series launched a thousand takes. Now what?

[Hi, I’m Chris Plante, and you’re reading Postgame, a weekly newsletter collecting the best games, stories, and videos in the video game community into a fun, digestible package on Sunday mornings. Learn more on the Postgame About page. Postgame is usually edited by Stephie Grob Plante, but she’s on a road trip so I’m all alone this week! Want to support Postgame? Please share it with a friend! Or even better, visit my work-home at Polygon.com!]

Last week, I asked y’all to share some of your favorite, deliverable local delicacies. You didn’t disappoint. I shouldn’t enjoy these treats on my own, so here are a few of the standout recommendations.

If y’all try any of picks, let me know! And send a picture of the spread!

Scheduling note: I’m taking Thanksgiving off from outside-of-work responsibilities, so there will be no newsletter next Sunday. I’ll be back in December!

Three games to play

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Demon’s Souls

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

Four stories to read

Three videos to watch

Is this… real?

“How Zelda's puzzle box dungeons work”

The secret door in Demon’s Souls has been opened

The best of the rest


But what do you think?

Send links, tips, comments, questions, games, and pumpkin pie pictures to @plante.

That’s a wrap. See y’all next time. Wear a mask!
