Normal, but for shooters I'll usually go with Hard first.

MGS 4 is one of my favorite games of all time and I'll not have anyone tell me otherwise!

I've never seen GameStop or PSN reviews (those exist?) but I find Amazon reviews to be too anecdotal to be taken seriously. I have the expansion on 360 and it's totally fine. I can't imagine playing the game without it now, honestly.

I've never looked at GameStop or PSN reviews (those exist?) but I find Amazon reviews to be untrustworthy, for the most part. Too many anecdotal complaints that can't be taken as indicative of the product.

If you like horror games, Outlast is an absolute must. Outlast, Battlefield 4, and Assassin's Creed IV are the most fun I've had with the system so far.

Persona 4 is the best example of this. I wouldn't have given it a chance before the Endurance Run, and now it's one of my favorite games.

All of the buzz surrounding the new Wolfenstein inspired me to borrow it from a friend and play it. It grabbed me pretty well in the beginning, but by the halfway point I was kind of sick of the game. The combat stayed mostly the same throughout, and the stealth, which I really liked in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, was just kind of bad in this game. The AI has a habit of walking patrol routes that conveniently have them facing away from you almost all of the time, so it just became too easy.

Perhaps my biggest disappointment was that the cutscenes really felt rushed. I really liked B.J. as a character, but all of the others weren't given enough time to develop into characters I could care about.

Like you mentioned, the cities in Deus Ex: Human Revolution were so much fun to walk around. I wish Wolfenstein had that. The rebel base just felt claustrophobic.

I don't, but that's a cool idea. I'm content with my screen just going black, although I always just close my laptop (I don't have a desktop PC) if I'm going away from it.

As someone who loved Pop-Tarts until last Fall semester when I had several nights eating nothing but Pop-Tarts for dinner: fuck Pop-Tarts.

@bonorbitz: The hardest part of Dark Souls is definitely the beginning of the game. Once you've gotten a feel for how your character moves and you've decided on a weapon type that feels best, the rest of the game becomes totally doable. As for the framerate, it only really gets terrible in Blighttown.
