Have you ever stared blankly at your PlayStation 4’s dashboard, puzzled about which game to play? It’s the story of this editor’s life, as he often recklessly returns to NBA 2K20 because it’s the easiest option. Microsoft, to its credit, has come up with a solution: a new ‘Surprise Me’ button on the Xbox One dashboard will randomly select any title from your library, and suggest it as something to play.
Currently only available to those part of the system’s Insider programme – and spotted by Reddit – the button doesn’t automatically boot the random game, it just brings up a popup suggesting you play it. Alright, it’s hardly the most amazing feature in the history of console operating systems, but it could potentially solve those awful moments where you sit stumped, wondering what on Earth to play.
