This fellow has a point--he is Vinny.

I usually say something like: "It's this 'shooter' where you're 'this dude' who has to go and save 'the world' from 'monkeys' so you go around and 'blow up trees'."

Do you ever describe a game other than Timesplitters?

It depends on what's more meaningful to the game experience.  Telling somebody about Heavy Rain strictly in terms of gameplay would be dumb.

I expected at least one Duke Nukem Forever within the first few posts.

Ah, that's why I got a PM saying my post was deleted.  My bad.

So a few days ago I bought a game on Steam for $2.50.  This game was Clive Barker's Jericho.  Clive Barker's Jericho is not a very good game.  I know this because I had already purchased this game around four years ago on PS3, and subsequently traded it in after having beaten it.  For some reason I just gravitate towards Jericho (I think it's because there's this dude who's arm is possessed by a fire demon) and feel some absurd need to own it.
 
Have you ever bought a game even though you knew it was bad?  Did you have a good reason, or was there just a dude with a fire demon for an arm?

I came out of school with about $10K in loans to pay back, which I did in less than a year.  I'd think that was pretty good if I were actually putting my degree to any kind of use.

Still in school so I haven't come to that road yet. Hopefully I'll be able to get a job right out of college. *crosses fingers*

Internships, ASAP.

Also - loads of the pessimists are just asshats into BF for the 'realistic' mods like Project Reality. They aren't actual BF players. Just mil-sim dudes. Who gives a fuck about the mil-sim crowd? Lost love really.  As a game, I say Battlefield was never more fun than BF:BC 1 and never better executed technically than BF:BC 2. Bringing both together with BF2's scale and BF2142 structure will be utter and total domination and win.
To be fair, the biggest reason why the first Bad Company was so fun was because the music was awesome!  Also, golf carts.
