Do you think Guitar Hero was as influencial on society as the Tony Hawk series?
Do you think more kids took up music from playing Guitar Hero like how more kids took up skateboarding from playing Tony Hawk games?

With games like Enslaved, Fallout, Metro 2033 and the upcoming Rage, do you guys believe that the whole "post apocalyptic" theme/setting in games is becoming a new trend? Do you believe it will continue to thrive and become a genre all its own or will it eventually become an old, outdated theme in games and just diminish and become second thought with game developers?

Lately, we've seen a couple new collaborative works come out of Japan, ie, the Suda/Mikami partnership, maybe even Level-5 taking on a Capcom contract.

Taking an existing IP of your choice, which development teams would you select to develop certain parts of a game regardless of contracts or other legal agreements/issues. Limit of 4 developer teams, to keep it reasonable, I guess.

IE, Platinum Games for a action beat-em up combat system while Ninja Theory handles the story and presentation, with Retro Studios focusing on level design, and the Portal team handling puzzle design... for say... the next Castlevania?

Last week an industry analyst, Michael Pachter, has said that there most likely won't be any new next generation games console from the likes of Sony or Microsoft as gaming would be delivered through 'cloud' based services such as OnLive (games streamed using your internet connection from an online service to your TV or PC)

I personally am not happy with this idea for many reasons, but I think that the members of VideoGameHenchmen represent the majority of gamers thanks to your individual tastes in genres, so do you feel that it's possible for 'cloud' based gaming to be successful at these times when disc based games are still the preferred format? Or do you think that since we are getting more used to downloadable titles via PSN and XBLA that there is a good opportunity for streamed gaming?

Also consider whether your gaming experience may be degraded by poor streaming performance or how the limitations of such a system may mean Michael Pachter is thinking way too far ahead and actually the majority will want nothing to do with it?

All too often, we see a preview/trailer for a game showing amazing potential and promise, yet the end product turns out bland or uninspiring. We wish that these games could be given a second chance and be redone in a different way to realize their full potential.

My question to you is: What game(s) do you believe deserve a revision/remake in order to show their true capabilities?

I forget where, but I thought I had heard Bioware was interested in starting another RPG IP. They are usually known for making very well fleshed out stories and characters that we love. My Question is, if any of you worked for Bioware as creative minds for the next big thing, what would you want to put together? (Meaning in terms of story, type of characters, how they would fit into your plot, type of gameplay, type of genre, ect.)

What is your favorite bad game? A game you consider to be of below average quality, but you still like, for whatever charm it may have.

Would you rather pay 80 dollars upfront for a game OR pay the current 60 dollars with 20 dollars worth of important story content related DLC (such as mass effect) trickle out over the course of a few months?

Once I beat a game im done and I could care less about DLC so id rather pay the 80 dollars and get everything upfront.

P.S. Love the show, Bless your hearts.
