@mandude: Do you mean first fully voice acted game? Because Morrowind had plenty of voice acting...

It had voices, but 99% of it was just reactions to the player. Almost all of the dialogue was text, even for story characters. In Oblivion, everything was voiced, which why everyone complain about there just being 10 voice actors in the game, 13 if you count Patrick Stewart, Sean Bean and Terance Stamp(not counting Shivering Isles).

I haven't seen Death Proof, and can't remember anything about True Romance or Jackie Brown(though it is on my "to-view"-pile), but I'm pretty sure that Pulp Fiction is the best film he's made. It's certainly the most influencial.

Before playing the game, I thought a story involving Ra's al Ghul as the main antagonist would make a pretty good last game. He's probably the only villain, besides Joker, that can carry a game. However, with him being such a presence here, I doubt they'll bring him back as the primary antagonist for the third game, and there is some setup for other villains.

I think a game where the larger DC universe played a part, even if it was a small part, would be cool. Having some of the other heroes show up to help out, or having some of the villains associated with other characters (Lex Luthor wouldn't be a bad pick, or even just a LexCorp logo), just to show that Batman is part of a larger universe. Of course, this would lead to a lot of speculation as to what Rocksteady would do after Batman...

The consensus seems to be Spider-Man 2 is freaking awesome. I concur.

Apart from those LOTR character action games, I thought the Battle for Middle-Earth was pretty good. The second one was better, but wasn't based directly on the movies.

Oblivion's GotY didn't have all the dlc (It had the two that mattered though). If they're doing a Shivering Isles-like expansion, I wouldn't expect more than that in the GotY to be honest.

I've already bought Skyrim, (im)patiently waiting for it to arrive in my mailbox.

It depends. It's the best game experience I've had so far this year. But I also thought Arkham Asylum was the best game to come out that year, and you might get more out of Battlefield 3. I can't recommend it enough, but it's more Batman.

I was thinking that for a few hours of playing... But then I went and finished it in one sitting.

I just finished it on hard(my first time actually) and my highest was 63. There's room for improvement though.

To call an Elder Scrolls game just another RPG is selling it short. What's cool about TES is that you can go where you want and you can at any time just go your own way and ignore story quests, and still have a meaningful experience. Very few RPGs are as open as TES. What makes TES great isn't the story, but the world crafted outside it. Usually, I like the faction quests better than the main story.

Batman. I don't read a lot of comics though.

Super heros are kind of dumb in my opinion. They don't connect with the real world in any meaningful way because of their ridiculous powers.

Now, the ones that are interesting aren't "super" at all. Batman for instance is very interesting. Iron Man as well. We're talking about flawed human beings, running around in suits, doing incredible things. That's where you find the interesting stories.

Well, comic books in general is escapist literature, so what makes them different is kinda the appeal.
