Not yet, but I'm working on it. When I've achieved the goals I've set up for myself, I'll consider myself successful.

I can't think of any albums I've ruined by overplaying them. There are a few that have been ruined because I listened to them during bad times in my life. I can barely listen to Band of Horses' first two albums (especially "The Funeral") and Arcade Fire's The Suburbs anymore, for example.
Of all the genuinely awful games I've ever played, Pit Fighter for SNES the absolute worst. The badly digitized actors, horribly pixelated backgrounds, the cacophonic "music", unresponsive controls. Ugh. It all just comes together to form this almost beautifully unfun mess of a game.
I would nominate Friday the 13th for the NES as well, but I can almost see how you could make an if not good, at least interesting game out of the ideas it. That's actually a pretty good game jam challenge, when I think about it.
I use the Tri-Op jingle from System Shock 2.
Good idea. I should do that too.
For incoming calls, I use the old Apogee jingle. Works really well, actually.
This could be interesting. Steampunk isn't really my thing, but the people involved are all very talented. The art looks really nice.
I really admire Blaustein. Imagine what it must be like to translate Kojima's dialogue, and then have the voice actors say those lines. Can't be an easy job.

Yeah, once! Think it was a red evil one. It appeared in the worst possible place, namely on the bridge with the archers in Anor Londo. Swung my axe, hit it and it fell down into the chasm. Then I got hit by one of the Dragonslayer arrows and plunged to my death too. :(
I love both The Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now, but this is Coppola's masterpiece, if you ask me. It's just so damn well crafted and written, and Gene Hackman's performance might be the best of his entire career. If I were to make a list of my top 10 movies of all-time, this would be on there.
