    Escape to the Movies: The Road

    I agree wholeheartedly, but I don't think this is one of those books. I saw this film at a pre-screening a few months ago and was pretty impressed. It was very true to the book and adapted well into a film. Hell, Cormac McCarthy wrote it as a screen play before he wrote it as a novel!

    Poll: Why did Hitler attack Russia?

    Gears of War Designer: "The Future of Shooters is RPGs"

    I never said anything about hating space shooters, I played and thoroughly enjoyed GoW. It just seems strange that Cliffy B. would rather create popular games (weather they're good or not) than try to create great entertainment. Ok, so the writer did a better job (in my opinion) doing Bioshock...

    Gears of War Designer: "The Future of Shooters is RPGs"

    So Bleszkinski would rather be a sellout than a creative artist. Also, I would say that although the RPG elements of bioshock (squint and look to the side and you can see them) were good, that game isn't revered because it had RPG elements. I loved bioshock for the atmosphere and plot.

    Escapist Community: Books You Must Read Before You Die....

    On the subject of science fiction I just finished reading Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Dick, definitely one of my favorites. Also, I love the Timeline 191 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_191] 191 books by Turtledove, basically a big alt history thought experiment

    Bionic Commando Rated "M" Because of RE5

    I wonder if this is more puzzling than Twilight Princes' teen rating. But I guess this is more of a retarded bureaucratic move. Good job ESRB!
