    Classic don't make it good. :smug:
    Have you ever seen hatchet? Now there's a good slasher flick with 100% practical effects.

    I didn't catch the first one. I saw the third one which was cool. The first Friday the 13th was perfect man. If you like the genre you owe it to yourself to watch it in Blu-Ray. Same with Nightmare, Child's Play, Pumpkinhead, Halloween, and Texas Chainsaw...

    All of those are actually good. Especially texas chainsaw and nightmare. Friday the 13th isn't.
    That one's probably my second favorite. The first one is the best tho'
    Also worth noting that the guy who layed Victor Crowley and his dad in hatchet played Jason vorheese four times, perfecting it in Jason X.

    I know about the guy who played Jason. I am a horror junkie. Friday the 13th is good in a slasher horror type way, not the same way that Texas Chainsaw and Nightmare are. Halloween on the other hand is just plain fucking classic like The Thing.

    I find it hard to decide who the best Jason was between Kane Hodder, Ken Kirzenger, and Derek mears because the all played him so differently but all so awesomely in their own ways. Who would you choose?
    Still haven't seen this. Been meaning to for years just because I'm a huge fan of body horror.

    Fuck your other question. Do whatever you have to do to watch John Carpenter's The Thing right now soldier. On the double. PM me.

    Oh and now that I have the time - I liked the original the best.

    I love Fallout 3, think Fallout 4 is an above average game while shit to the series, and think Nuka World is easily the best DLC ever made from the franchise.

    I also love Mothership Zeta and think Fallout 2 is superior to Fallout 1.

    I think Fallout: New Vegas works better as a sequel to Fallout 3 than the main timeline.

    I love romances in video games and wish more games had mature adult romances.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order had one of the most mature adult romances in video games.

    I like Bioware, generally, and enjoyed Dragon Age 2 while thinking Dragon Age: Inquisition was blandly generic.

    Mass Effect was really good sci-fi and a great series up until the nonsensical ending.

    Skyrim is one of my favorite video games of all time.

    Claire Redfield is the hottest Resident Evil girl followed by Jill and Ada. I don't get Rebecca Chambers appeal.

    Telltale games are hit and miss but their hits are pretty damn awesome. By which I mean Game of Thrones, The Wolf Among Us, Walking Dead, and Tales from the Borderlands.

    I play Call of Duty for its single player and love the series for them by which I mean Modern Warfare and Black Ops 1 and 2.

    I enjoyed all of the Bioshock games even if Infinite was tremendously pretentious. I only truly hated Burial at Sea because I actually liked Elizabeth as a character and felt she was being tortured by disgruntled game developers.

    Assassins Creed's yearly game output was fine by me since I enjoyed virtually all of them with the exception of the original and Unity. I also really want another Templar game.

    Adam Jensen is one of the best video game protagonists of all time. I wouldn't say Human Revolution was a better game than the original Deus Ex but it's pretty damn close and a far more human story.

    The Thief reboot was like being kicked in the nads repeatedly by someone you thought was a friend.

    I play on Easy setting whenever possible.

    I'll be fair and won't even bring up NV's DLC, but The Pitt and Point Lookout were both better than Nuka World.

    Considering it's an actual direct continuation of Fallout 2 where Fallout 3 wasn't. I fail to understand your logic unless you're talking strictly from a gameplay perspective.

    She's cute, I guess that's her appeal rather than being hot.

    No one beats JC.

    What a shame.

    Having went through the original Deus Ex again recently, I don't really understand what was special about JC Denton. He served his purpose in that game, but his role in Invisible War was far more interesting to me.

    Ashley Graham is the hottest RE Girl, altho she is also the most annoying.

    I hate the Dark Knight Trilogy, I always felt they were very insipid and incomplete movies that just had Batman to fill in the weakness of the script with Brand Recognition.

    I don't think Batman V Superman was bad, not any worse than the generic Superhero movie (I give it a 6/10 which is the average for those, and I actually prefere something stumbling on the door while tackling another angle than the whole companyt festering in their own content while churning out the exact same movie over and over, I actually think the new Xmen trilogy is better than most of the post Cap America 2 MCU movies.

    I hate Bioshock and the Last of Us, in general I dislike most everything from Naugthy Dog except for the original Crash games.

    I think Zombies automatically make every story 10 times shittier.

    I like Pineapple on pizza and raising and oats cookies.

    I dislike Baccon.

    Fight me.

    I think the original Star Wars movies are just fun competently made movies and their staying power and overt influence in culture was actually detrimental to the movie industry in general and nerd culture.

    I don't like any JJ Abrahams movie, sometimes I dislike movies that I didn't even knew were from him so it's not even being a hater.

    I hated the new Star Wars movies and I think they are worse than even the prequels because they feel like very unimaginative fanfics made by a comitee.

    Hayao Miyazaki is a great director and animator but I think Ghibli gets far too much attention to the detriment of other Japanese studios that produce more interesting and experimental movies and shorts.

    Nuka World actually made me hate Fallout 4 even more. There are too many things wrong with it.
    Mothership Zeta is a massive pile of shit, but I am in the group that prefers F1 over F2.

    What does this even mean?
    Are you saying that New Vegas works better than the sequel to Fallout 3 than Fallout 2?
    That makes no sense given the context and content of the game.

    I don't have a problem with this, as long as it isn't the game doesn't lose focus on the story it is trying to tell.

    I haven't played this game, but... interesting I guess.

    I like Bioware as well, but I've not played those games. Maybe in a few years...

    I agree again, although the ending, while still bad, didn't really effect the enjoyment for me for the rest of the series.

    It's also one of the dumbest. Coincidence? I think not.

    They are all bits of code. Anyway, everyone knows that Chris is by far the sexiest Resi girl.

    I don't play Telltale, but have been meaning to try out their Walking Dead game.

    Isn't that like watching porn for the story?
    (I actually went through the campaign for Ghosts and it was just meh).

    I've only played the first Bioshock and I thought it was pretty good. You gain a gold star.

    Annual releases are a problem for the reason of rushing out the game to fit a release date and because it hogs up space on the market. It's a problem which COD is facing now, people are getting tired of it. And with concepts which depart far from the original COD experience, the devs can't keep up with both the demand and new ideas. Assassin's Creed is the same, except Ubisoft realised they hit big with the whole idea and are now just milking out the series. They know how it will end, they just know it's a cash grab.

    It's what leads to problems like the Unity glitches and such.
    I don't mind a series continuing after its story has finished, hell, I am looking forward to seeing what happens with the new Mass Effect and seeing if it can sustain a new series, I'm even looking forward to seeing how Metal Gear Survive pans out, but the thing with these games, they aren't annual releases.

    The problems a lot of publishers and devs are that they want people to just continually play their games. It's why Bethesda makes games with no ending. They just want people to play that one game, and that's an issue I find with Assassin's Creed, it's just boring to play the same game again and again for the past decade.
    I'd rather play a game for a few weeks, then come back to it in a few years.

    Also, the first Assassin's Creed is by far the best.

    I didn't ask for this...

    This isn't very unpopular. In fact, if you check out TotalBiscuit's video on this, you'll find it's the complete opposite. But as it stands, yes, the Thief Reboot was awful, and yes it was done by a decent developer, but we should understand that devs are artists and good artists will release crap from time to time.
    It's best to let the Thief series die, we'll always have those two original classics to bring us back.

    You're not worthy for the Order.

    But seriously, looking at your posts, it seems like you're more into being a powerhouse rather than play a challenge, and that's okay. Games should be escapism and you should have fun playing them.
    The whole Nuka World thing may not interest most of us because for us, we see crap, but for you, you obviously get to live out that dream of being a raider of sorts.
    And playing on easy helps me understand that, you don't want to start from scratch, but you'd rather be a level 100 straight away.

    Again, there's nothing wrong with that.

    Wolf among Us is the worst adaptation of anything ever, also one of the worst, poorly written games in recent years.

    The episodic format for games is pure cancer both for the industry and the game itself. It negatively affects the ability of the game to have good pacing or an interesting narrative, mostly having to be a string of cliffhangers and cheap fake outs.

    It is indeed based on Fallout 3, but not the released Fallout 3.
    It is based on Van Buren, with some imposed variations (the engine, plus the chronology) and some bit of new ideas. But most of the content is quite the same of what they had planned for Van Buren. And Van Buren was designed way before Bethesda's Fallout 3 was released.

    No one besides extremists think that Black Lives Don't Matter. They just don't matter more or less than any other race. That's all.

    No one is saying that women rights do NOT matter, besides islam and extremists. Again, not the casual human on this planet.

    There is no such thing as white privilege. I don't get a letter with 2000 dollars every month with the government congratulating on my privilege. There is poor of all races, and rich of all races. Women and other races, get the exact same in wage, opportunities (look at our former mr. president, and the candidate last year), because there is actually LAWS demanding these things.

    Too many rich white dudes? Remove rich white dudes and you're right. Fuck off with that misandry crap, thank you.

    Capitalism is bad for poor people, but good for the rich. That's the problem. I agree with you on that.
