There's currently a lot of buzz surrounding Bethesda's Rage because it sure seems like a new game is going to be announced next Monday. The Smart Money is on a sequel or some narrative that makes use of the same post-apocalyptic setting.

Episode 7 of Season 4 of Breaking Bad opened with Jesse playing a version of Rage that never really existed. He stood in his partied-in house and gunned down mutants with a light gun. Jesse was going through some heavy stuff at the time. This meth empire raked in a lot of cash, but it also unleashed a lot of evil into the world. Playing Rage -- simulating killing that took place soon after some real-world killing -- was more torturous than cathartic.
