WHAT? I would have loved to have that ship glitch, given how sucky the naval missions when I was trying to complete the optional objectives.

My two biggest complaints about the game are the...

I am not trying to say no one is allowed to feel disappointed. I am simply very confused about the notion that ACII's plot was superior. It really seems like an indefensible proposition to me.

I did not say that at all. I said that my video games are held to the same standard in terms of plot as my books.

Totally agreed. You are spot-on when you say that the invasion was inevitable and we all knew it was coming. The Crucible (or dark energy or whatever) should have been moved up earlier. Basically,...

Equally sloppy was the non-existent transition between 1 and 2. The plot was essentially completely derailed. I get that 1 had not been released on the PS, but come on.

Sorry; ACII's story was garbage. I hold my video games to the same standard I hold my books in terms of quality of narrative, and I read a lot of very good books. ACIII's plot was not amazing. ...

Goldeneye for the N64, various Star Wars games, the Lego games, and Toy Story 3, which I just beat and was an incredibly pleasant surprise.

This is the reason that ME2 was such a huge disappointment for me.

It focused too much on characters and not enough on plot. ME1 still developed its characters well and could have continued to do...

WOW.

These were interesting. A few comments:

1) Thank goodness we did not have Alien Shepard.

2) I actually disliked Shepard's resurrection in ME2, and throughout both 2 and 3 I was...

Not having ammo was one of the best things about gameplay in ME1. I honestly have no idea who swallowed an idiot pill and decided to ruin a refreshing and sensible game mechanic.

I do not have a favorite. I found some particularly intellectually stimulating: the Geth, the Krogan (with the genophage considered), and the Salarians. Next would be the Asari (especially with...

I thought this game was much better than AC2.

Plot was much better and meatier. Characters and conflict were much better developed. Gameplay was smoother; freerunning was infuriating in AC2...

It was short but enjoyable. I liked the added abilities and wished they could have somehow made it into the original game (Bear Might? Yes please).

Very middling movie.

The script was decent, although some of the f-bombs seemed forced, and the acting in general was good. Jodie Foster, whom I normally like, was unfortunately awkward at times....

Finnegan's Wake, which remains incomprehensible and undecipherable to me.

Thucydides and Demosthenes in the original Greek. Other ancient authors renowned for their opacity, e.g. Aeschylus.
