I remember Patrick complaining about the lack of a fast travel in this game, but I really, really enjoyed rounding up my pawns and setting out on a journey from the capital to wherever, hoping to beat nightfall. I realize I'm in the minority, but I like games where just going from place to place can be part of the adventure.

I wonder if Dark Souls would be here if not for Load Our Last Souls.
DS is not the game of the generation. If anything Demon's Souls would be before Dark Souls since it not only started the series but was much more brutally difficult than DS. ME2 isn't really the game of the generation either--this whole poll has shown people just vote for what they like and not what's actually the game.
@drxlecter: If by "better game" you mean "the one that is winning", then yeah, people aren't going to defend or make arguments for the game that's winning because they can just smile and know that they have the right opinion.
I enjoyed Skyrim much more than CoD4, but if we're talking about the game of a generation then I cannot see any logical argument for Skyrim being more important or better than CoD4. Like I said earlier, people are letting the cool "generic fps Cawwadooty babies" shit cloud their judgment and memory of what was an incredible and very good game and one that made such an impact on the industry that we are still feeling it's effects now almost seven years later.
People let the CoD madness make them not vote for CoD4, but Modern Warfare was not only revolutionary in terms of online multiplayer, but the storyline and huge crazy event-based storyline was powerful and new. It's too bad people can't see through the blind CoD hate that later games engendered.
I think the only way you can vote for HR over the Witcher is by disliking fantasy, liking cyberpunk, or not having played all of both games. HR is a really good game with some flaws, but Witcher 2 is a great game from head to toe--the only criticisms I could think to level at it might be how difficult the combat is, but that just makes it all the more rewarding when you get the hang of it. Some people didn't like the end, but I felt the last boss had a whole lot more emotion and power behind it than HR's A B or C choice.
@sharingan: Asmodeus is a lawful evil god, anti-paladins are all chaotic evil. Asmodeus leans very heavily on law and order while anti-paladins are absolute evil pieces of shit that murder, pillage, and destroy without care or concern for anyone or anything. I don't think they'd work in a party, even an evil one, because they're absolute champions of evil. No one can trust them, predict them, or rely on them.
Also evil parties become boring real fast.
@turboman: Vinny doing his Tool Time segment to make the Brad Death/Yawn button was pretty funny when he was so freaked out about the Dremel shattering and killing him.
Vinny trying to get his plane started and out of the hangar in DCS while that asshole helicopter sat and stared at him, Drew crashing into them both in his plane. Also Vinny teleporting his plane through the wall of another hangar and getting airborne for like 5 seconds.
Jeff falling asleep and Alexis laughing at him was pretty good. It was also during the DCS segment when Drew and Vinny were getting their planes started.
The fights that Jeff had with the other guys in some shitty Sega fighting game when he was playing the character Goldrock.
Vinny and Drew's attempts at one armed pushed ups.
Jeff making his character a bot in Speedrunners without telling anyone and pretending to play it.
There were more but I'm so tired from watching the whole fucking show I can't remember them right now.
