As someone who like Dan thought anime was ridiculously dumb up until about a year ago, here are my suggestions. My biggest problem with anime was because (like Dan) I was convinced all anime was ridiculously long, badly paced, filled with fan service, filled with fan service, and generally annoying tropes (hard to explain but i guess stupid naked cartoon chicks and ridiculous emotes all the time). So I guess that stuff is true for some (most?) anime but one show convinced me anime wasn't complete garbage.

Angel Beats

First off its super representative of all types of anime since it changes tones so much while still being quality throughout. It made me laugh and cry which blew my fucking mind because its still 100% super fucking anime. It has amazing ridiculous action (Angel could easily be an MGS boss she is basically like a bunch of them combined). Its only 14 episodes so super short commitment. Also Dan would fucking love TK! He randomly shouts out nonsense English phrases in the sub like "I Kiss You!" before shooting someone in the face and then dances alone in the cafeteria.

I know it isn't just like MGS but Dan did go to school for film and loves wrestling. Im sure he has at least some range in tastes. I'd throw my support behind Death Note as well.

I can't believe it has been a year since you first started doing this contest! It feels like just yesterday I got my copy of Alan Wake. Also while I am here I guess I should play along. I don't keep track but I remember which games I have and have not beaten. also Renegade Ops

I could see Mass Effect in that list. It has made most Western RPG's (that are not of the bethesda style) way more action based, for better or worse.

This dissolved a long time ago. if you do want to play with some duder, just ask the guys who regular the BF forums and they might let you join up with them since they are pretty cool.
