and I'm always one of those unlucky bastards who gets major plot points spoiled just before I get to them.


I wouldn't even dare.

I actually want to say Dark Souls, but I really have to give it to Dead Space 2.

That game was just filled with convincing atmosphere, and it was the best quality of Dead Space 2.

The Wire appears to be a superior, more realistic show for me. Season 4 had me in tears. The Shield seems like a sitcom version of The Wire...Don't get me wrong, Michael Chiklis created an icon with Vic Mackey, one of my favorite characters EVER...but to me the show died with L(you know who), much like Death Note. Forest Whitaker was awesome though


Eh although I as well think The Wire is a superior show (and superior to most shows) it's not fair to make a direct comparison, they set out to do different things. I loved The Shield, it was a few years before its time. It could have been a season or two shorter though, I think it ran for seven years.

All about Ronnie.


Poor Ronnie....

I'm rewatching the series on DVD right now and it's great remembering how awesome it is. Plus, it's got one of my absolute favorite quotes from ANY medium ever....after Dutch pieces together how a woman with Alzheimer's gave birth to a baby 30 years earlier, killed it, and buried it in a park.

Claudette: Should I be worried about you?

Dutch: Not about me. Maybe about the rest of humanity...just a bunch of sociopathic narcissists out for ourselves....begging, cheating, stealing, lying, screwing, raping....killing our babies...whatever it takes to have a good time and save our own ass. I can't even believe in an old woman who's too sick to feed herself. And it's not sad. It's not like it's some big surprise. It's just nature. We're animals, nothing more. And you know what? I'm learning to be OK with that.
Gamers are too reactionary. Games are like fine wine, they must linger for us to get their true taste. There are plenty of examples.

And then there was Shane: ***in' ain't cheatin'.

Ever the philosopher...

Edit: Not quite the same effect with it blurbed out, but I've hit my moderation quota for the week.

Out of that list? Journey would probably me highest, followed by Bioshock and the first two Souls games.

But over all? Limbo, easily, followed by the two ICO games


You know, Limbo was good. But I just felt like the second half completely lost the feel of the game and was more about physics puzzles then atmosphere.

But yeah the first half was really something.


Admittedly, I kind of agree with this. For me it starts to loose a bit just after the savage children are killed. After they die, there is no evil force like the spider or the children trying to kill you But it still gets my vote
