@wh1terav3n:  Do I have to pick 5? I don't really watch a lot of TV (I like to watch a bunch of episodes back to back so I prefer waitinf for DVD releases). I guess Dr Who's the only thing I go out of my way to watch, Mad Men's good too and Heroes is still entertaining although somewhat hit and miss (they've never matched that 1st season either), but I kinda stopped watching both of those on the BBC so I'll probably just get the DVDs.

@chicubs223420: GTAIV was 2008's game of the year (here and a Hell of a lot of other places) it really is a great game and you should definitely play; from what I've heard about RFG (haven't played more than the demo myself) it's a fun game, but not really unmissable the same way GTAIV is

@jadeskye: I haven't really experienced any problems with it, but I haven't really played as much as I'd like (only a few hours really); I seem to have amassed quite a few games to play and I keep getting distracted.

@jadeskye:  Oh I know they're not, I wasn't really being serious, but at least they're lack of region locks let me get my hands on Demon's Souls.

@jadeskye: I suppose that makes sense, Sony are obviously just nicer people or something then. Grr want to play Deadly premonition, but not sure it's worth £50 to import Red Seeds Profile (Asian version) for PS3 + Play-Asia doesn't seem to be able to send it to UK for some reason.

@BertieWooster: I much prefer longer podcasts, I like my podcasts to feel more like discussions than news bulletins. Gaming podcasts other than the bombcast I listen to are Gamespot's The Hotspot and 1up 4 Guys; outside of videogames I love lxg which is about comics and table-top gaming and is by 4 dudes who work in an Android's Dungeon type of shop.

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein is very good, and obviously everyone should read The Lord of the Rings at least once.
  @Ben99: Try reading Misery and The Shining, to see why Stephen King is so popular and successful, also I really enjoyed The Dark Tower series, but 7 books is a pretty big committment.

This.
 
@SpawnMan:
I hate to break it to you but this is more like the 7th generation, not the 3rd. Dragon Age is all about micro-management, you should be giving all your party members commands and pausing a lot, maybe you should read up a bit more about games before you buy them. Also I have to ask what games do you like?

@dbz1995:  They certainly suggested it very strongly, it seemed really obvious that was what was going on, it was one of those trailers that's more like a condensed version of the movie.

" I question if this thread was made for quests, cause this clearly has been brought up several times before "
Yeah, but the poster obviously hasn't been here too long, and could easily jusy not know, it's not like this isn't a valid topic, I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.
