Expectation to work overtime with no notice whatsoever.

How's about a compromise. Dan Ryckert eats food while playing DOTA 2. Get it? It's like Dan Ryckert is being fed while feeding!

I have a couple:

  • Metroid Prime - Bought and sold it like five different times, enjoyed every minute of it but I just didn't have the patience for it.
  • Dragon Quest VIII - Played about 30-40 hours of it and then sold it to gamestop. Now I've got to start all over.
  • Final Fantasy Tactics Advance - Was dumb as a child, and couldn't strategize effectively. Pretty awesome game, though.
  • Fire Emblem - Same as above.
  • Fallout 2 - I just keep wanting to restart.
  • Deus Ex - I just keep wanting to find all the ventilation shafts, and then restart.
  • Plants Vs. Zombies - I keep getting to about the third world, and then I just kind of lose interest.

I really, really enjoy Advance Wars: Dual Strike.

If I'm playing a game to see the content and the dump it I play it on easy. If I'm genuinely interested in a game and it has four difficulty settings then I will choose the second hardest difficulty.

SteamWorld Dig was pretty good. I was tempted to go back and get some more of the upgrades, but without another to challenge to use said upgrades on....

Gunpoint is really a lot of fun, and it has a lot of really cool emergent design. You can hook up a single switch to multiple things at once and it's actually quite brilliant.

Magic: the Gathering.

It's made by WOTC, so it counts.

Brad has can grow an amazing Selleck stache. That makes him easy choice for the cop.

2006 was a solid year.

I also contend that most good games from that year were quickly supplanted by sequels/updates.

Edit: See I think the scope of this thread is a little too broad. Hindsight is 20/20 and I don't think I'd trade 1994's games for 2004's games. However, comparing years in a vacuum is pretty counterproductive. Games evolve and change over time, and comparing 1994's games to the ones from 2004 is pretty dumb. I guess I'm judging "weakest year in games" by how fast the games became irrelevant.

Shaun of the dead 5/5, would watch again.
