Coincidentially, I think game of Thrones sucks. I was able to do two seasons of Mad Men before I got bored, but could not even last half an episode of Game of Thrones. Anyway, to me the original resident evil on the PS1 constitutes a masterpiece (cheezy acting and all). In fact, the original alone in the dark on the PC was the true masterpiece (RE1 actually stole a lot from AITD) and Dead Space 1 was pretty close to being one as well ( even though it stole a ton from Event Horizon). I love the survival horror genere, but find TLOU to be lacking. We will see if my opinion changes after I finish it, but so far I am finding much more suspense, excitement, actiona, drama and horror with NHL 13 online league play

For instance, I'll be 30 in August, and I still find Kubricks' The Shining film incredibly creepy and scary, yet most of my younger friends (18-24 range) find it completely dull and boring. I don't understand it but I realize that there is a generational gap. Attention spans just aren't what they used to be.
I'm 36 and have been gaming since 1982 (Atari 2600), which by my calculations means that I have been gaming longer then you have been alive lol. Also, the shining is not creepy. Seriously dude its not creepy at all, however, The Shining is THE SCARIEST FUGGING MOVIE OF ALL TIME. Creepy does not do that Mind FUK of a film justice at all!Edited by l88bastard - 7/3/13 at 11:00pm
