So, what was everyone's worst purchase last year that goes against everything CAG stands for?
Buying two copies of the Division at launch.
A friend bought into the hype HARD (he always does) and declared that he would buy me a copy if I wouldn't get it on my own (I had absolutely zero interest). Being the only one of us with GCU, I offered to get us both a copy and he said he'd take me out to lunch as a compensation. We ended up going to a place I didn't even like, got a meal I didn't really care for, and when the waitress came with the bill he asked for two checks.
All these years, I thought that *I* was a cheap-ass. Clearly, I need to learn from the master.

Can anyone else recommend the Metro Redux bundle? I tried to get into 2033 on 360 and something about it just didn't grab me. I hear they put a lot of work into the re-release though vs being just a simple remaster, and for the price I might give them another go.
I really, REALLY wanted to love those games but no matter how much I tried I just couldn't enjoy them. They're both perennial sales fodder, so if you have a backlog (and really, you should) they'll probably be on sale again before you get to them anyway. I'm voting pass.

Good deal today only at Barnes and Noble. Collectibles are 25% off, and you can stack a 15% coupon on top.
Coupon is BNBELLS
15% off only applies to one item in cart, so make multiple separate purchases. Free shipping if over $25.
They carry some Bandai, Nendoroid, Kotobukiya, and other items.

So I tried the overwatch free play. Maybe because I'm new and not that good at shooters but I wasn't too impressed. I played like 20 mins and deleted it from my hard drive and went back to battlefield 1. Can anyone explain why it's so popular compared to other shooter games this year?
Because it's extremely well balanced and offers a huge roster of unique characters that all play differently. Also because the developers managed to strike a perfect balance between catering to hardcore players and still being open to neophytes. And lastly because it says "Blizzard" on the box.
If you have any interest, I would recommend spending more time with the game while it's free. Try a few different characters and really get to know their strengths and weaknesses. Play in a group with friends if you can. I don't normally play multiplayer shooters either, but every time I pick it up I can't help but be impressed at the care and attention to detail that went into this title. Sometimes a game is great not just because of what it does right, but because of what it doesn't get wrong.

they drive on the other side of the road in Australia, just like England.
Wrong. This is a common misconception.
It's because Australia is in the southern hemisphere which is a mirror-image of the northern hemisphere; so left and right are inverted, just like looking at a t-shirt in the bathroom mirror. So it only makes sense that what they see as the right side of the road, we view as the left.
