THE DISC SLOT
They make the games we love, but what do they play for fun? We ask developers to pick six from Xbox history. This month: Brian Fargo and Chris Keenan
Chris Keenan: I would definitely choose The BioShock Collection . I’m a huge fan of the BioShock series. I think some of the stuff Ken Levine and that team have done within that game as far as emotional impact has been fantastic, and it’s spurred me along every step of the way. That’s one of those games I would be happy to replay multiple times, over and over.

Wasteland was a PC game first and when we went to put it on consoles there were a couple of games we studied that I thought transferred that isometric gameplay really well. I was amazed at how well Diablo III  played on consoles. That to me was a great conversion from something that was such a true PC game.
Battlefield 1  isn’t out yet, but, boy, that looks good. It looks so beautiful and I’ve heard nothing but great things, so with my limited number of options I would use one on gambling on Battlefield 1 being great. [Unsurprisingly, it turned out to be brilliant. Good call, Fargo – Ed.]
