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!
They just updated the the blog [http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=2754] a while ago and, of course, there's a hidden page.
If you want to find it yourself, DON'T READ ON
Just go to the KOTH map pack link at the bottom. Now, instead of following your instincts and only clicking on...
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...
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.
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
