RE: Alice's Restaurant
The younger whipper snappers may not get why Alice's Restaurant is a thing.
Unless you lived through the late 60s' early 70's horror show that was the Vietnam War and the Nixon years you can't really appreciate this song.
The song gives thanks for those who stood up and resisted the whole dismal affair from day one. Now it gives thanks for being successful in shutting down that war, and eventually seeing Nixon and his dirty tricks crew go.
That is still something to give thanks for.

HZD=Skyrim for children ages 7-12.
Have you even played either game? Not that Skyrim wasn't fun but there was no depth to that game at all. The story was... well the less said about the main story, the better. HZD had a much more interesting story and lore.

There won't be enough vaccines ready for first responders and those deemed high risk in December and what with it requiring 2 shots weeks apart this is going to be a shit show.
If we reach 70% herd immunity by vaccination before 2022 I'll be amazed.

Ray-tracing is more than just reflections. Maybe Google it when you have the time. It could be, literally, quite enlightening .
... in 4-5 years. Until then, very very few people with Ray-tracing capable GPUs will actually enable it. Once the perf drop will settle around 20-25% ( without DLSS ), it'll be worth it. But halving fps? Lol, NOPE.
It's going to be in pretty much all the AAA games due to consoles having it. We'll see different implementations, clever use etc, it will be interesting. Yeah it's not critical, but a lot of nice effects aren't.
I haven't seen a single actual gameplay vid with raytracing that made me get all hard and go, 'Oh baby! I need me some of that!' Point in fact most of the time I'm scratching my head and saying, 'There's supposed to be a difference between the scene on the left and right? Ruh?' You only really see it on ultra, and that eat frames like a mofo and uses way more juice - costing you and the planet more. Maybe it'll be worth in a couple of generations of cards but certainly not now unless you're clinically OCD about these things.
