OG Dragonball or Yu Yu Hakusho are my votes, for sure. The only problem with Yu Yu is that it kinda drops off in quality after the Dark Tournament arc, I think. It's still pretty good, but it definitely never reaches the highs of that arc again.

Outside that, I think shorter stuff like FLCL could be fun, or Gurren Lagann I think could be the right level of light-hearted ridiculousness that Jeff and Dan might enjoy.

Jeff doesn't like story in games unless it's cyberpunk- or space-based, and he specifically has said he doesn't like shooty games set before World War II because the guns suck, so the odds are pretty bad that he'll love it.

I'm sure he'll be able to appreciate it being an incredibly well polished game and he might find some parts of it he's really into, but the odds are pretty bad that he'll actually like it enough to finish it, I bet.

Such a bummer. Always felt like Telltale was confused about what people enjoyed about their games. I still remember what a breath of fresh air The Walking Dead season 1 was in an era where player choice affecting a story in meaningful, nuanced ways was a new concept, but instead of continuing to push that concept forward, they decided to go into full factory production mode on a creative medium, which... is almost never a good idea.

The artists and writers working there all seemed to be doing the very best they could with what they had to work with, and I hope they can all land safely somewhere working on more interesting projects than they would have at Telltale.

Even more than blowing up the moon out of nowhere, I can't wait for their reaction to Piccolo having a clothes beam because sure why not:

Piccolo is the best. DBZ is the best. This podcast is the best.

Danny DeVito, and especially DeVito in Sunny, is a national treasure and too good for this world.

The problem with Horizon for me, and I think the GB dudes as well, is that while it is an incredibly well made game, it's not a particularly memorable one. I can't say it did any one thing better than any other open world game I've ever played. The graphics sure, but that on it's own isn't enough for me to want to invest 40+ hours in beating it. I tried twice this year to let it get its hooks into me and both times, about 12 hours in, I fell off (and ended up playing a bunch more Zelda instead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

Either way who cares. It's a dumb, arbitrary list, made even dumber and more arbitrary by the sheer volume of great games this year.

@adamlcook: I don't know, I mean Leia didn't die, sure, but to say she didn't pass the torch in her own way is kinda silly. At the end, when Po tells everyone to follow the crystal critters out of the cave, she literally says "Don't look at me, follow him". It's not as clean as "Luke dies and Rei takes the Jedi texts", but it's pretty dang clear to me that she wouldn't be leading the resistance in the next movie either way. Or at least she would be leader only in name, with the next generation of rebels calling the shots.

The movie had problems, but that part I felt pretty good about, actually. But yeah, we'll have to see how they handle it in the next one.

Horizon: Zero Dawn seems to show as a 2016 game in the search results list, but shows the correct date on the actual wiki page. Hooray weird little things!
