    With an average salary of ~$124,000 according to Indeed, Tesla’s not kidding around–like they ever do in all seriousness. If you could pick any game to play in the Tesla (no hardware performance restrictions), which would It be?

    None of you think the gaming centered Easter Eggs may not lead to more?

    USB Music Player, that's the game I'd like to play. Maybe we could play a whole album in order without "skipping".

    Tesla's software department is now their biggest weakness. The management are deranged.

    I would love MUCH better phone integration where the car reads the phone's songs and playlists and allows control on the screen. I know I can put music on a USB, but there are no playlists so that is not a great solution.

    I would love better phone integration in which I could trigger Siri from the button the steering wheel. I know I can press the button on the phone, or rig the phone to always listen to 'hey Siri' but that is not optimal.

    In general I wish the Tesla had about the same level of phone integration that a Chevrolet Volt does.

    Seems like a good idea to me. If you have a really bad crash, just press the restart button and off you go again.

    Bad gaming skills if you get into a crash parked.

    If the only choices are classic arcade games, my vote would be Spy Hunter. Come on Elon, we have the steering wheel (with weapon buttons), pedals, and shifter stalk!

    If they could ever fix their buggy ass software, I would play spy hunter.

    But perhaps they should hire more customer service reps to answer the f*cking phone and answer emails instead of a gaming engineer.

    You know, Tesla hires lots of people. A few years back, they hired a hot-shot HUD developer...

    Since FSD is near completion, it makes sense.

    Soon we'll all be playing games instead of holding the steering wheel.

    In 6 months maybe, 12 months definitely.

    Even worse driving skills.
    Along with the other worthwhile priorities mentioned, enabling mid-way points in MapNav would be of infinitely greater utility.

    LOL.

    Not FSD, but I would like them to use the hire to produce an interactive tutorial for new owners to learn the car.
    That's the game that's needed.
