You know, some SWAT 4 style multiplayer in the Frostbite engine would be pretty cool...

I always find this tough because I can't always lock down the order. Something like this:

1. Dumb and Dumber - I have seen this movie enough times that it shouldn't be funny any more, but every time I still end up laughing my ass off. 2. A Scanner Darkly - A great mix of comedy and drama, paired with some crazy animation and excellent performances by Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson and Keanu Reeves.
3. Blade Runner - The classic Ridley Scott film that defined Cyberpunk. And that soundtrack.
4. Star Wars V - The best film in the greatest movie franchise to ever exist. Also, something about someone's father sticks out for some reason...
5. The Matrix - I also love Reloaded, but I went into the first film knowing nothing about it, and did not expect what followed. The only knock against it is that everyone needed to have bullet-time in their films after The Matrix came out.
6. Constantine - Peter Stormare as Satan. Scene stealing at its finest.
7.Saving Private Ryan - While some may argue, in my opinion it is the greatest war movie of all time. That scene with the medic...
8. Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring - I think the strongest of the 3 films, with excellent performances across the board.
9. End of Watch - An odd film because of the way it was shot and how it tends to jump from action to drama to comedy. At the same time, I'm not sure I've seen a better on screen partnership than that portrayed by Gyllenhaal and Pena. Heartbreaking lines at the end.
10. Cloud Atlas - Some people find it difficult to follow, but I really connected with the story and the characters. The most recent movie to really grab me.

@cmblasko: I purchase games way after release too. We should start a club.

As someone who recently played Bioshock Infinite, I really don't get what everyone hates about the combat. Maybe I just like to change it up rather than stick with the same combo for most of the game, but I had no issues with it. It's nothing revolutionary, and the vigors aren't as good as some of the plasmids from Bioshock 1 & 2, but there's variety to be had.

Is it just a lack of diversity when it comes to enemies? Or do the combat scenarios just all seem the same? If it's the latter, I found the skyhook stuff added some speed to the combat and always made the outdoor scenarios seem fresh, especially after an extended sequence indoors or away from any lines. Not trying to say you're wrong for not liking it, I just haven't seen much of an explanation beyond "the combat is bad".

Too Human.

Yes the story didn't wrap up nicely, but it was incredibly satisfying to rack up a 100+ combo rapidly sliding between baddies and feeling un-fuckin-stoppable. I also thought the rune/glyph system was pretty cool, where you needed to complete certain tasks or requirements while they were slotted. Picked it up for cheap not thinking much of it and could not believe how much fun it was. Silicon Knights still seems like a sleazy developer, but it's a shame that Too Human will only be remembered for contributing to their downfall.

Also, Kane and Lynch 2. Roller coaster single player and some unique sadly under populated multiplayer. Got a lot of shit for being short, and most people hate Kane and Lynch as characters, but I thought the dynamic was great in that game. "No. More. Deals."

I would second a lot of the games on here, like Bastion for example, but I wanted to add another to the list - Fusion: Genesis. Fun little top down space shooter with some RPG elements. There are MMO aspects too but there aren't enough players at this point.

GT: Steelle88.

My pawn is ~lvl 60, currently set up as a fighter. The vocation is maxed but her stats are better suited to Mage which is also maxed. If you need me to switch her, feel free to add me and send a message. I would really appreciate someone renting her out.

How can the theme be anything other than Windjammers?

GTAV won't win GOTY. Jeff was probably the biggest fan of that game, and he has stated recently that the online being shit has negatively impacted his opinion of GTAV.

Edit: Thought of a cool idea. It being the end of a generation, they do a "best of" theme, either piecing together segments from the past few years, or recreating them.

I find it hilarious that you necro'd a thread with a comment that doesn't expand at all on the conversation from almost 3 years prior.

You own 210 games worth: $2,440.18 USD.

Not sure if I should be happy or sad about that...
