What is your favorite, out of all the moves/games/ECT that you've seen Razz? Typicall all you have to do is put down the game/movie/ECT name, state that it's a game/move/ECT, and why you would recommend it (you don't have to recommend it if you don't want to / can't think of anything xD), you can have more than one favorite, of course Smile . You can also put in your own "view/interview/overview" of the game, ECT.



--------------------
Favorite Books/Movies: The Plague Dogs & Watership Down. Recommends them because: For one, they're not disney, which seems to me that a few (some) of their movies are *extremely* unorginal, and those are just about the only "cartoony" movies you can get...besides warner brothers and probably another I'm forgotteing xD. Lion King ll? Come on, where's the sequel name Sad ? I'm thinking Disney "went down the tube" when Walt Disney himself "kicked the bucket" Sad .
The Plague Dogs is a fantastic, original book/movie about two dogs who escaped a research lab. Snitter, a fox-terrier, keeps on telling Rowf about his old master, and keeps trying to find both Rowf and him a new master. Rowf, on the other hand, as one of the dogs in the "kennel" of the research labratory might have said (in the book), is a dog that thinks/wants to become a wolf. After trying to find a master, Rowf says that they shall have to "change to what we used to be". A fox who goes by "The Tod", helps teach them how to live in the wild. I think that's enough information on this, I've probably given too many spoilers already Razz.
Watership Down is again, a great orignal book/move. It was actually made before The Plague Dogs, and started out as the author of the book telling a story to his kids. In fact, the same author who wrote Watership Down wrote The Plague Dogs, and, in my opinion, they are both fantastic books/movies. Watership Down starts out with the Sandleford Warren. Fiver, the runt of his litter and Hazel's brother, is a seer, and sees a "vision" of the future, in Fiver's own words, "a terrible danger", was what he kept saying about it. I'll divide this into two simple parts. The first is them getting to a "perfect" hill called Watership Down, which is what they name their warren. And the second is where they start out looking for does, and turns out with them having to go to the warren Efrafra, which is run by General Woundwort, Efrafra's tyrannical Chief Rabbit. I'm not exactly sure how to describe this in any other way, because I'm afraid I'll spoil some great parts.
Favorite Games: Psh Laughing ! (In no particular order) Ps2 games: Okami, Dog's Life, Spyro the dragon games. Wii games: Endless Ocean, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Zelda: Twilight Princess. Computer: The Endless Forest Laughing (everybody on the forums, right xD?), Safari Photo Africa - Wild Earth, Age Of Empries & Age Of Mythology Games, Aliens Vs. Predator 2, Aliens Vs. Predator 2 Primal Hunt. Nintendo DS and Gameboy: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, and some other pokemon games. Unknown: Aliens Vs Predator Extinction. And probably a whole lot more where that came from xD.

Favorite game Is def. Eve online because of how in depth it is. you can play that game for years and not fire a single shot at anyone and still be a complete success if you so chose. I love Working in groups so I an part of a corporation that defends other peoples space *Mercs for the blunt*

They truly created an all around game for the largest community of gamers to enjoy Smile

Specifically, it's about a 75% wolf wolfdog. It's like a biography of this wolfdog, with extra emphasis on how he thinks.

It's really, really good.

Best game? MAJORA'S MASK. I love how parts of the game were about interacting with and helping other people, as opposed to running through dungeons and fighting bosses constantly :B Very original too! The dungeons were rather challenging though...
Loved Twilight princess as well, but it revolved a bit too much around the dungeons D;
BANJO KAZOOIE AND TOOIE WERE BRILLIANT. I loved being a t-rex and smushin' all the stegos ;U

Endless Forest too, but that's not exactly a game Laughing

ODDWORLD. Munches oddesy.

And that was about the only game I've ever played propperly (Eg, all i did on the reign of fire game was flap around as a dragon and eat people, and all i do on racing games is try to drives the wrong was and crash every else)

Plus, Oddworld, Strangers Wrath, whut, am i a oddworld addict or something? (yes maybe) And Destroy All Humans (Spaceship!)


And then there's like... Horizons. But all i do on that is mess around. Laughing

EPIC WIN

I can't really think of a favorite for movies, it depends on the genre. But...

For Drama - Silence of the Lambs
For Horror - for some reason I really like The Hills Have Eyes
For Musical - Sweeney Todd
For Foreign - Pan's Labyrinth
For Action - Pirates of the Carribbean (omfgjacksparrowepicwin)

For books, it's the same. I only have favorites for genres.

Drama - All Hannibal Lecter books
Fantasy - Inkheart
Comedy (it could be considered so) - All books in the Lightning Thief series


And for games, I've been playing Zoo Tycoon (I & II) since I was seven. Paws down, that is my favorite.
