* Currently, [[{{@/Cybele}} I]] am completely ''infatuated'' with ''{{Gungrave}}''. The bizarro tale of a murdered man now called "Beyond the Grave" raised from the dead and given the chance to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against his former comrades, including the man who murdered Grave in the first place. While the games do not have the combat depth of ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' (it's all about shoot, shoot, shoot some more)--honestly that's all I need, as Grave is basically a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot purple-clad undead cowboy assassin]] that carries a coffin that doubles as a weapon of mass destruction and wields GunsAkimbo and [[DieChairDie blows everything in his way up]], in the most over-the-top ways simply because it's ''[[RuleOfCool cool]]'' (really, the series gets quite OTT) And in ''Overdose''? You get to choose between the original hero, the Blind DualWielding Swordsman, or the Rockabilly Ghost Who Possesses His Own Guitar That Shoots Lightning. And the ability to [[BulletTime slow down time]]. I've just watched the entire anime series and it was just as awesome--and bought the artbook. >.> <.< * goes to look up that Brandon Heat bobblehead on Ebay* To quote from the NinjaPirateZombieRobot page, ''"Did I mention it's all designed by the creator of ''Manga/{{Trigun}}''?"''

* ''[[VideoGame/ProjectXZone Project X Zone]]'' is the result of {{Capcom}}, Creator/{{Sega}}, and BandaiNamcoEntertainment coming together for drinks and saying, "You know what? We should just make the biggest freaking crossover ANY of us have ever done!". And oh man, IS IT BIG! It has characters from over 20 franchises from all 3 companies! Street Fighter, Mega Man X, Tekken, Tales Of Vesperia, Virtua Fighter, Sakura Wars, they're all there! Plus, the gameplay itself is extremely addicting and fun. Being able to perform a flashy-ass combo with the turn of the circle pad and the press of the A Button is [[ShapedLikeItself FLASHY!!!]] Plus, you can put individual characters up with each other to have the ultimate asskicking team! Ever wanted to have Chris and Jill from [[ResidentEvil Resident Evil]] fight alongside what is basically '''[[Franchise/DieHard JOHN]] [[PrecisionFStrike FUCKING]] [[Franchise/DieHard MCCLANE]]''' from Die Hard Arcade? You can do that! Wanted to have Kite and Black Rose from [[Franchise/DotHack .hack]] kick ass with Heihachi Mishima from {{Tekken}}? You can do that as well! The possibilities are damned near endless!

* The {{Lego Adaptation Game}}s. Yes, I know I'm too old for them, but they're done so well! I got hooked starting with LEGO ''Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy'', and I even played the original. I logged many, many hours on both of those games, trying to reach True Jedi, collect every minikit and Gold Brick as if my life depended on it, as well as unlocking all the characters, even if most of them are either carbon copies with different faces or completely useless. Then came LEGO ''Indiana Jones''. I rented it during arguably the roughest summer of my life, but couldn't put it down, even when my stepmom was telling me to get ready to go out to dinner. Again, every Gold Brick, Red Brick, Minikit, et cetera. Then Lego Batman. I got it for the DS, and even if it didn't have those awesome Lego cutscenes, the comic book visuals weren't bad, and it was pretty much the same game, same collecting shit. I have just recently received LEGO ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' for Christmas, and I've spent the better portion of my days just wasting away at them. The lack of dialogue in the cutscenes is interesting. It's more of a "seen but not heard" type of thing. Even if there's some cheap slapstick thrown in here and there, I don't care! I, despite being [[SoOkayItsAverage not very fond of]] the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' series (except for the first one. [[Sequelitis Not so much the others]]), the announcement of that series being LEGO-ized is pretty cool. If only we could see LEGO ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' or LEGO ''Franchise/DieHard'', or better yet, LEGO ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''... that would rock! Especially seeing that the last one is having a video game made out of it. LEGO ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''? Nah, that's pushing it.

* PlanescapeTorment is one of the few games that can be thought of as literature ''and'' visual art. It's like what would happen if Neil Gaiman and Guillermo del Toro got together and made a game. It's disturbing, it's moving, it's hilarious. It's absolutely beautiful.

* No Creator/NipponIchi yet? You people make [[{{@/EtherealFrog}} me]] sad. All Disgaeas feature witty characters, an enticing storyline, and a fantastic battle system. PhantomBrave's lack of a grid and method of unit deployment makes it one of the most unique [=TRPG=]s out there. I have yet to play ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'' or LaPucelle, but I imagine they're just as good.

* This dates back quite a while, but [[Tropers/DeathToSquishies I]] have always been fond of the original ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' for the {{Nintendo 64}}. The music, the multiplayer, the weapons, the story, the levels, just about everything was as Perfect as the title would lead you to believe. It's just such a shame that it wasn't as widely acknowledged as VideoGame/GoldenEye1997, and part of me thinks that it only became known because of the prequel released on the Xbox.

* ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes''. I don't know a single person who can't resist the sheer bloody madness of walking around with a beam katana and slicing people open, only to hear them scream "My spleen!" as they die. Plus the graphics are pure cell-shaded orgasm. It's just a great game. It's why I bought the Wii, actually. (And while we're at it, let's throw in MadWorld for the heck of it.)
