Ever since Cracked picked up David Wong as editor, they've gone from a cheap Mad clone into a genuinely interesting satire site, the sadly-rare form of satire that has something to say, rather than just attacking (or just referencing) everything in sight.
You left out this one. It's an uncommonly well-balanced article on that issue that actually tries to explain what each side is about, rather than trying to convince either one that they're wrong and need to convert to the other.
Cracked is an excellent site... I wish more e-zines like that in my country!
Mad itself, particularly older iterations. As a history buff, old Mad magazines have taught me lots about the recent past through a satiric lens. Seriously.
Anything and everything by Kinoko Nasu, but especially Fate/Stay Night. Yes, all you do is read, but I DARE YOU not to cry in any of the three routes. There is, on average, three bawling scenes per route, and at least one heartwarming scene. Let's not even start on the crowning moments, as well as music, of awesome.
Tsukihime. Five routes, amounting to both five different stories, and five different aspects of the overall story, each character-driven and brilliantly reflected by the particular heroine they focus on. The protagonist is profoundly likable and human. Even the much-maligned sex scenes aren't really that bad, viewed from a relationship-building rather than erotic perspective, and the music that accompanies them is nothing short of lovely. Oh, and speaking of, the soundtrack overall is very simple, but perfectly atmospheric. Overall, the game's just a wonderful read.
Anything written by Ryuukishi 07. His works are scary, cerebral, and overall just highly entertaining.
If you have to play one Visual Novel, this must be Hatoful Boyfriend. It revolves around pigeon-dating. And it is an awesome game with a full cast of Crazy Awesome characters. And, as if the very fact that a pigeon-dating simulator exists is not awesome enough on its own, it actually has a story. And a very good story, at that. Prepare to be shocked, amused, scared and touched - often at the same time.
TV Tropes.org, I salute you. You are an invaluable and vital resource to my life, you're making me a better writer, and gosh-darn it, you're a hell of a lot of fun, as well.
The Mary Sue revamp has brought back my faith in TV Tropes. Everyone who helped at it deserves a badge.
If TV Tropes was a person, I would trust him as much as I trust my father, maybe more, and I love my dad to bits. Actually, I already do trust TV Tropes that much, even though it's a wiki. I love you guys; I don't know how I lived without this website, and I only first stumbled upon it five months ago!
If TV Tropes was a person, and was female (okay, even if it were male), I'd be totally, completely in love with them and definitely considering marriage. ♥ I spend way too much time here now and I don't think I've ever been happier with a wiki (sorry, Wikipedia). Just... every little geeky thing I'm into, you're into it too; you're cool and inviting, as opposed to Wikipedia's increasing uptightness; and you're fun. I love you all. * hugs*
If TV Tropes were a person and I weren't asexual I'd do naughty naughty sex related things to it. If it were a person, I might do that anyway.
Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to Trope-tan?
We need a male mascot, so we can slash him madly with genderswitch!Wikipedia.
Maybe 'cause it assures you that your positive opinion of it is genuine, and not the result of some kind of Hive Mind?
EMBRACE MANKIND! LOVE ALL THAT HAS LIFE!
This section, motivates me to live to the fullest. Everyday.
If I may point to one page in particular: Warhammer 40,000: So incredibly good I bought the Fifth Edition rulebook just so that I would be up to date and accurate when editing the article.
Warhammer Fantasy, equally as awesome as its sci-fi spin off. A shame it doesn't get as much love on TV Tropes.
This video made this male troper nearly cry. He finally understood what ballet was so popular for. Beauty from grace, Elegance from courage, Awe from passion.
Lamb of God is by far my favorite band. With every album they just keep getting better and better. Every member of Lo G is very talented with their instruments and they know exactly how to make songs sound brutal yet aesthetically pleasing. They are original, talented, and most importantly, they sound great. They are the exact opposite of everything I hate about the music industry today. Lamb of God Forever!!!
The Internet. Everything about it. Sometimes I fantasize about being able to speak to a person 30 years ago just so that I can tell him every single thing that is awesome about the Internet.
Killer Bunnies And The Quest For The Magic Carrot. I could play it all night. My family could play it all night. My extended family could play it all night. It never gets boring, the game is never the same twice, and even when you feel like it might you have the option to completely change the game around with an expansion pack or even your own imagination. It quenches my thirst for the arbitrary so I have the time to make the rest of my life a bit more orderly and sensible. In a nutshell, it keeps me from driving everyone around me to insanity.
Freeze tag. 'Nuff said.
The Jazwares Sonic line. They paid attention to every single detail of the characters. They are even doing Mighty the Armadillio, a character who has not been seen in over a decade.
LEGO's BIONICLE line. It has an incredibly complex backstory that literally cannot be placed within a single genre, characters that leap out at you, whether in plastic, written words, comic book pages, or tv screens, and a head-writer (Greg Farshtey) who is unbelievably devoted to his work.
Plus the toys are just amazing to collect and build. Seriously, they were like the best franchise LEGO ever made.
Novi Stars. It is a very unique line (at least as far as the basic concept goes, because there's not that many doll lines with a premise like that of Novi Stars), and the characters' themes/designs are interesting, visually appealing, and absolutely adorable. Not to mention the characters themselves are all cute in their own ways.
This page is awesome. This is what I like to think of when I think of this wiki - people coming together to celebrate their favourite shows, not bitch about them endlessly.
