@PoToSkull: If it does, it'll be a massive success. Telltale recently announced that they sold 8.5 million episodes, which means they almost sold 2 million full seasons.

oh god i don't understand any of these words

I would honestly love to see a video feature of Alex going out on the streets of New York to show off certain parts of the city that are constantly recreated in games, and assessing the accuracy of, say, the equivalent of Central Park in GTA4.

@Ares42: Yeah, probably. I did this in the span of like 25 minutes + am pretty bad at basic math. I would not be surprised to find a couple mistakes in here.

I myself think it's super interesting that Walking Dead and XCOM are tied for Number 1, but XCOM has one more person voting for it.

I had this idea while watching some of the personal lists earlier this week: what would it look like if Giant Bomb adopted a voting system akin to The AV Club, wherein each staff member has their own Top 10 list, the list is assigned points values, and the points are then totaled up and that decides the final list? I decided to add the numbers up myself, and this is the final result.

#1: XCOM: Enemy Unknown (56 points, 7 votes) / The Walking Dead (56 points, 6 votes)

#2: Journey (29 points, 6 votes)

#3: Mark of the Ninja (21 points, 3 votes)

#4: Fez (17 points, 2 votes) / Forza Horizon (17 points, 3 votes) / Hotline Miami (17 points, 3 votes) / Mass Effect 3 (17 points, 2 votes)

#5: FTL: Faster Than Light (16 points, 4 votes)

#6: Far Cry 3 (14 points, 2 votes)

#7: Spec Ops: The Line (11 points, 2 votes)

#8: Halo 4 (10 points, 1 vote) / Sleeping Dogs (10 points, 2 votes)

#9: Asura's Wrath (9 points, 3 votes) / Rhythm Heaven Fever (9 points, 2 votes)

#10: Diablo 3 (8 points, 1 vote) / Syndicate (8 points, 1 vote) / ZombiU (8 points, 1 vote)

It's not a perfect system, as you can see by the approximate six thousand ties, nor am I saying they should adopt this system. I just think it's some pretty interesting data, and it also allows to see what would happen if people like Alex or Drew got to be more involved in the decision.

Here's some other stuff I have from making that up:

Really hope the PC version hits the same day as consoles.

Bad news: Rockstar has said no PC version for the foreseeable future.

The game seemed to establish that you become a zombie if you die (sans dying by shot to the head), not if you become bitten. I guess you do become a zombie also if you've been bitten? I don't remember the game establishing that, so I was very confused as to why being bitten at the end was a big deal.

The bite kills you because zombie-magic-poison. Then you come back because you're dead.

Well, it's not because zombies have special poison. It's because zombies are fucking disgusting and ridden with bacteria and disease. A bite or a scratch is like 20 different kinds of infections.

It just says 'Darksiders' spoilers, does that include 2?

Now that the patch is out, 360 netcode is perfect, just like PS3.
