GameTrailers says Bioshock debut trailer is best of all time

So after going through 100 videogame trailers of all time they came to their number one today over at Gametrailers. Now this is a feature that I have really enjoyed watching, I mean the great video editing, trailers and gameplay footage are the reasons I go to GT and this has it all. I've agreed with some of their picks and disagreed with plenty but it's a great list nontheless. See video below:

About that number one, do you guys agree with that? Do you feel like they justify their choice? If not then what is your personal favorite and for what reasons? I can't say I agree with GT but I really liked that trailer, I mean it blew my mind when I saw it for the first time, it still kinda amazes me. Certain times I enjoy watching trailers more than playing the actual game. Atleast it's less of a time commitment.

There are so many trailers that I love so I'm pretty conflicted on this topic. I'm just gonna settle for 1 that sticks out in my memory.

First off is Mirror's Edge. When I first heard about this game it got my interest. And then this trailer came out. The amazing artstyle, the fresh feeling parkour gameplay and that wonderful music makes it one of my favorites. It's also very simple, it shows the game off well. It's not my favorite but it's on my top 5, can't really choose a favorite.

There are plenty of others, plenty of which are on that list but I figured I'd keep this brief

Video Game Development! There's alot I'm wondering about....

I've always loved videogames, why else would I be on this site right?
 
And for as long as I can remember I've wanted to be a part of making them., but I will admit that I don't know a whole lot about it. It's a pretty wide field to work in with a lot of different jobs. I don't want to sound  naïve, I know it's hard work but I have no idea on how to get started. I want to be a programmer but I don't really know what I can do
 
So can I get some help and tips from people in the community, I'm currently in school with a focus on computer programming but it hasn't even come close to bringing up games yet.  So are there any sites or programmes or anything I could look at? I'm 17 years old btw and I would love to get started with all of this now
 
Sorry if I wrote a crappy blog, wrote it in kind of a hurry

What book are you currently reading? Or plan on Reading?

 So I'm not super into reading books since I often don't have the time but I just got an english assignment in school to read a book so I've decided to start reading as much as I can
 
The book I'm reading for school is called The Hunger Games, I'm on like page 7 and it started off well


Another book I'm reading is Män som hatar kvinnor(The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) in swedish, pretty good so far, haven't seen the movies
 


And lastly I really want to read the new Mass Effect book, read the previous ones and the comics so I want as much fiction as possible, gonna order that soon
 


So are you an avid reader? Are you reading something right now and wanna recommend it? 
 
Thanks for reading and sorry for the huge images

Learning Photoshop CS5 - Day 1

Photoshop has always been a program that's intrigued me, but due to general lazieness and stupidity, I've never bothered to learn how to use it. 
 
But now that my school has given me a laptop full of Adobe programs I've decided to give it a shot. It's a pretty daunting undertaking for me but but hopefully I'll master it someday. I watched some tutorials on Youtube, a channel named Ch-Ch-CheckItsClan has some pretty useful tutorials. I also looked up how to change my language from Swedish to English since English is much more useful to me.

The picture above is my first succesful photoshop work, again it's pretty basic but I hope to be better soon. I could really use some helpful tips from people on how to be better and what I can actually do in Photoshop, since there's so much that's possible
 
Thx for reading Y'all

I sure do have alot of games to finish 2.0!

The last time I posted a blog I was talking about what games I was playing through and I still have plenty left and they are the following!
 
Persona 4 (Yes I still haven't finished this OR the Endurance Run which I was a huge fan of, currently at episode 147)
Persona 3:FES (It's so long, 55 hours in I think)
Final Fantasy XIII
Dragon Age
Borderlands General Knoxx DLC
Mass Effect 2
Half-Life 2 Episode 2
Eternal Sonata
Brutal Legend
Digital Devil Saga
Red Dead Redemption
Fallout 3 Point Lookout DLC
Lost Odyssey
TESIV: Oblivion Shivering Isles 
Portal
Shadow Complex and Splosion Man(To be honest I just bought these a couple of days agon on sale and I've played quite alot)
 
Yes I guess that's plenty of games, I don't really plan on buying on anymore until I finish up atleast half of these. I guess the reason is because I don't like finishing games and that I get sometimes get easily bored.
 
There are some that I straight up don't wanna play like Lost Odyssey and HL2:episode 2but I feel like I have to see them through. Anyone in a similar position to me?
 
And I often don't even feel like playing, I'd rather be doing stuff on my computer or being out when it's nice because it's summer.
 
And I think that's it, so that's Dylan A.K.A Venatio signing off

I sure do have alot of games to finish

It's good that christmas break is going on because I have alot of games I havent finished, seriously, there are like 12 games on my To finish list and they are 
 
Modern Warfare 2 
Borderlands 
Brutal Legend 
Persona 4 
Persona 3:FES 
Assassins Creed 2 
Lost Odyssey 
Half Life 2 Ep-2  
Eternal Sonata 
Dragon Age 
SMT:DDS 
GTA IV: TBoGT 
 
And I think that's about it, I think I will finish some of them but probably not all of them, and I just keep going back to MW2's online instead of focusing on playing these because I have had most of them for a long time. I was a big fan of the Endurance Run but I haven't watched the ending because I keep pushing Persona 4 away from being played.
