@Dagbiker: I'll take it as a compliment, so thank you. :) There's no fiction you take interest in and like to know about?

I don't think some of the games you have up there are legitimately bad, like Turok and MW2. As for me, there are a lot of bad games, but one game that I have, that I'd consider the worst, and not just because I don't like it, is N3. That game, other than the main theme, is all pretty bland and not very high quality.
So, I was just on IGN and reading stuff on what they saw of the intro of Prometheus, and while I won't spoil it, I would like to just mention one small thing that is said. They mention that it starts out on Earth in 2089, but after some stuff goes on, it fast forwards to 2091 where the crew of the Prometheus is journeying to a "planet called LV-233 (the early action in the original Alien took place on LV-426)". Now, was it just the IGN writer of the article that doesn't know LV-426 is a moon, not a planet, or is LV-233 an entirely new planet to the series? I was wondering if it's actually a planet they're going to, or if it's the same moon in Alien/Aliens, but it's later on named differently. I was assuming they'd be going to the same moon, but at the time of this movie taking place, it is unnamed, and later named LV-426. If anyone wants to read it, here's the link. There's not much being spoiled here, but if you really don't want to read it, don't.
I'd really like to know, 'cause it's not really clear as to what the person is saying.
Where's both? Or do you mean first? If my brother doesn't want to do it co-op first, then I'll probably play it on my own, which is what I'd like to do first.
I replay a lot of games that I like again throughout the years; it's nothing new or abnormal. To name just a few, well I can't do that 'cause then that's selling others short. Eh, let's see, the most recent game I guess that I've played through many times although I've gotten all the trophies for is Dead Space 2; I've beaten it 10 times now and still want to play it. I game that I have on all three (360, PS3, and PC), is Bioshock, I've beaten that about five times through overall.
I usually don't play through extremely long games more than once or twice, like Dragon Age: Origins. I spent about 50 to 60 hours on that, I don't think I'll ever do that again. I've beaten Mass Effect 2 five times as well (although that was a mix of it being fun and a little bit of a chore). Man, I can go on and on. The original F.E.A.R. is one game I'm at least thinking about right now. Maybe it's 'cause I don't play that many PC games anymore because the lack of a powerful PC, but I think F.E.A.R. on PC still looks great. I wish I'd fix the PC I could play games on.
The first games that really stand out that I remember beating five or more times through were Ninja Gaiden on Xbox, Half-Life 2 on Xbox (since at the time, around 2004 and 05, I had only tested it on my friends PC since I didn't have a powerful enough PC at the time), Metroid Prime on GameCube, and Resident Evil 4 on the GameCube. There are a lot of games that I play through a lot, and I think in the future that'll stay the same. There are a lot of games that I love to just replay even if I don't beat them as well. F.E.A.R. is one of them, I've only beaten that twice I believe, but I still play it though.
The only one I haven't played unfortunately (or at least I think) is Bayonetta, I think DMC4 is of pretty good quality, the characters are great, but overall I kind of found it boring about half way, or a little less than half way through it. I'm in the minority I think, but I really appreciated Dante's Inferno, although I will say that it's a bit repetitive, and the final boss isn't much to care for. It's the game I admire the most even if I take the problems into consideration. I remember getting it and after I beat it though, I played it through right after the credits. After that though, it's kind of hard to play that far into again.
I hope they make a sequel to it. I really like the premise and I cared for the Dante's journey, though I wish they had taken some of the details a bit further, and the way things are done, like the way some of the bosses are fought, or the way the stages are constructed. The one game that's like God of War that I still haven't played but really wish I had is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Although I won't doubt Bayonetta is a good game, I'm just not that interested in it; after it came out, just a week after, and hadn't bought it, I lost interest. Anyways, although I wish I would recommend Dante's Inferno out of the other two, I don't know if I should. If anything, buy it for me so there's a better chance for a sequel! If not, I guess Bayonetta.
@Abyssfull: I agree, but I disagree about RE5. I didn't like it when it came out, but I noticed later on that I stopped caring for the changes and liked it for all of its qualities. I'm glad it's part of the main story, but I'm also happy it wasn't the last. I think I've already said this to you before, but I think the latest animated movie they're making, will feature Billy Coen and Leon. That's what I thought I had heard the last time I saw the trailer for it, which was a long time ago it seems, and reading on the wiki just now, there's no mention of Billy, so I don't know. What about Carlos though? Just kidding.
I don't dislike the old survival horror style RE's, but I think the newer action oriented take on Resident Evil (four and five) is awesome. As long as they can bring the beloved character back and still have a quality game no matter what, I'm in. I thought it was awesome seeing Chris and Leon do a little battle, it reminded me of the great Krauser battle and some of the small Wesker fights in five. I feel like playing five again. Also, there are a lot of character in Resident Evil, so she's not one I think of a lot, but I do wonder if they bring back Sheva too. When the heck is there going to be a Metal Gear Solid 4-like Resident Evil game where they bring every single living character back into one, and they all eventually cross paths with one another?
