Bullshit.  It's gonna play exactly like every other GTA minus the first one.

I've never been a lover of the GTA games, but I have to defend the new one from this charge.  From what I've seen of the new targeting and cover abilities, this one will have a plotline may like the others, but the actual moment-to-moment gameplay will be significantly different, and in a good way.

Also, Dade, that crossed the line for me :/

Sorry, everluck, but that IS one of the memes that's been on the web for a long time now.  Its mere mention can cause bannination on some sites (not that I'm threatening anything here), so I guess now you'll know for the future.  If it says goatse, stay away.

Of course, to quote Futurama: "You've watched it - you can't unwatch it!"

The bums, especially the picky ones. I gave this dude some spare change, he picked out the dime and threw the pennies on the floor right in front of me. The jerk!

Seriously?  How much do you really need to beg for change if you can afford to just chuck the pennies?

I dunno, wouldn't it be hard to find ammo in a game franchise where you traditionally chainsaw down ghouls and monsters?

The only other humans in the game have always only been the ones you try the save.

As a person who owns nearly 3000 books, I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I have never heard of any of the three authors you mentioned.

I always remember the original with a great deal of nostalgia, but just because I used to sneak off from junior high and play it at the local 7-11. :D

Random urls rock.  Just... don't look them up at work. :D

...Well, I beat Portal. :P  I knew it was short, but I had no idea I was ten minutes away from the end when I stopped.

I swear, if this game was twice as long as it is, I think people twenty years from now would be talking about it with the same reverence people give Pac-Man and Super Mario Brothers.

Portal is seriously made of pure awesome.  I was sad about the length too, but felt like the last level kind of made up for it.  Did you get it on PC?  Because if so, I've heard about downloadable levels and using the console to put the portal gun into Half-Life 2...

Edit: what Eusis said is definitely true about games that feel padded.  I just played Super Paper Mario, and as great as that game was, there were two or three places where it felt like they just threw crap in there to pad out the length.  Definitely annoying.

I suppose Pokemon or one of its better imitators could be my one game.

On that note, despite my choice of Diablo 2, I will admit that I actually maxed out the playtime clock in Pokemon Red... at 256 hours. :)

I believe the key is to play with others.  Play by yourself, and there's too much going on.  Play with friends, and you can cooperate to take down the baddies together.

(At least that's my guess... I haven't played with anyone.)

Check me out!  I crushed what could have been an interesting thread on "what one game would you take to a desert island, assuming you had the hardware to run it, and it would work forever?"

I'd choose Diablo II (with the expansion). :)

Alternating between two games that hate me, but want me to love them: Monster Hunter Freedom and the new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. :)  When I need a break from that, still playing the Mythos beta.

I definitely understand what he's saying there, but it ignores the economic reality of the situation.  Sony and Microsoft lose money on every single PS3 and 360 they sell.  I'm not sure about the handhelds, and I know Nintendo actually makes money on Wii hardware, but still...

Sony and MS can only hope to make video games a viable business model by making a ton of money on games.  How best to do that?  Sell a ton of games to a ton of people.  If you sell less games, you make less money.  If they were to make only games that they expected you to play for hundreds of hours (like so many of us have from time to time) and still make money, they'd have to charge a lot more for each game, and I don't think the market supports that.

Besides, as much as I love the games I've put a ton of time into, they're like a banquet, and sometimes all you really want is a snack. :)

(Holy cow - I actually sounded like I knew what I was talking about there...)

I could have sworn there already was a DC vs. Capcom.

Are you maybe thinking of Marvel vs. Capcom?
