@manmadegod: I'd have to give some honorable mentions to Doom and Doom II, the XBLA versions achievements were what I finally needed to play those games and I got into them in a bad way, plus some of the Sega re-releases. Crazy to think the service has been around that long, good post!
I got the "100 kills on Xbox Live" achievement for Doom the first week the game came out. The death-match had so much lag it was almost unplayable and I knew there would never be people online again after that first week. I wasn't able to beat the SP on Ultra Violent
It's weird how nobody remembers how bad the level design was in Doom, and how it got even more fucked in Doom II. Beyond the first episode anyway. Go back and play those games, and you'll realize the challenge is rarely (unless you crank the difficulty all the way up) the enemies you face, but just finding where the fuck the game wants you to go. Having said that, I still love the games. Maybe partially out of nostalgia, and partially because whether it's messy level design or not, at least it's a shooter that requires you to think when you play it.
The later Doom levels do get hard to navigate, but try playing marathon 2: durandal. Holy. Shit.
After hearing about this, I went on twitter to see what was up. Both Paul Walker and Fast and Furious are trending. I figure I'd click on them to see what everyone is saying. The fast and furious one pops up and shows a bunch of pictures. Guess what one of the pictures is?
If you guessed a picture of paul walkers dead face with a huge bloody gash in it, side by side with a pic of him alive, you guessed correctly.
I hate everything
No way that was real. Guy died in a speeding accident that resulted in the car going up in the flames. His face would not be recognizable.
