what the hell happened to their mics after the break?

Can I be incredibly lazy?

Does anyone have handy the links to the previous years final top 10 list podcasts? I've listened to them all but want to revisit to see what games I may have missed. I think 2008 would have been the first one.

so the thing that Jeff talked about on the podcast about sitting in his car outside a children's playground with the engine running? Yah that was me last night...

it's things like that that really make you question your decisions in life...

@hailinel: agree I've gotten more out of reading the faction chatter than from the game itself. To be fair they have training missions but most people don't like to learn that way. Most people want to be told "hey you're near a portal! hack it!" or "hey there's an unclaimed portal - deploy some resonators!"

@corruptedevil: thanks for the suggestion - there are 2 universally loved games which I could never get into - Bioshock and Half Life. I played each of them for like an hour each and had to turn them off from a mixture of boredom with the lack of action and a general dislike for the frenetic pace of when the action did kick up. I suppose that makes me a bad person but it just goes to show there's no accounting for taste :)

@tyrrael: we have MUA - played about half of it with my son - the story is a little ehhhh. Great for ten year olds - not so much for 40 year olds.

@jeust: grade the horror element for me on that - scary or campy?

just started playing this after they mentioned it on the Bombcast this week - what a weird thing! It's like a proper gamified version of foursquare.

I really have absolutely no idea whatsoever what I'm doing but I'm sort of intrigued by it nonetheless.

@patoday: hm I've played both of those. Really enjoyed but not sure about re-play-ability when the challenge is figuring out the answer the first time.

Thanks though.

Vanquish has gotten weirdly expensive which I'm not sure I understand other than supply and demand.

I think Fable 2 was one of the early games with gold? If so I have it. Or am I thinking of Fable 3 that was bundled with the 360 I bought (which I promptly sold bc the demo didn't strike me at all)

#9 Edited by JRock3x8 (254 posts) -

ooh yah Mirrors Edge is a great idea and I want to play that too.

Plus I think from what I've seen from it, it's just our kind of weird/dumb.

as for Deadly Premonition - we're not horror fans - Dead Rising was more dumb/funny than it was horror :)

Thanks for all the responses/ideas! Much love for you guys!

@themightyskullboy: I LIKE that idea as I actually HAVE that game sitting shrink wrapped on my shelf (where it has been for a WHILE)

I neglected to mention we also have a Wii and I have never ever played any of Nintendo's catalog other than Wii Sports. I have a desire to check out Metroid Prime 3 but the last time I tried it (5 years ago), I spent an hour with it and just could not grasp the controls.

Thanks for the Mass Effect recommendation - I have played all three of those games and I'm not sure my wife could get into that. As much of a huge sci fi geek as I am, she really doesn't get into that but I would REALLY like to play those games again.
