When does your hypemeter go off and you can't wait for a certain to be released?
What was the game you were the most excited about before it got released and what did you do to get so excited?
What game was off your radar and in the end, you got excited about that title (and why)?
Which game were you excited about but in the end you got less and less excited?
In general how long does the excitement of a title keep you?
What do you do to keep excited about a certain title?
Any game that you think wasn't worth your excitement?
Is there any title that you think people around you got too excited about?

What do you guys think about COD: BO was it worth it? Did Treyarch actually did the franchise justice or was it a flap?
How is the multiplayer in the game? also, How is the story-line?

While gaming is an expensive hobby, what do you guys do to actually compensate or the money loss? In other words, what stuff do you guys do to get money to buy a game. (Probably has been asked before Neutral)

What was the greatest disparity you've ever experienced between your opinion of a game before you played it and your opinion afterwards? Whether you thought it would be shit and ended up loving it, or vice versa, what would you say contributed to this switch?

Why is it that developers are throwing established beloved franchises to handhelds instead of console? Is it because they are afraid of old series not appealing to new generations so they won't 'waste' money on a full console game? Or are they just douchebags?

If a game has a poorly developed main character, but really developed and interesting NPC's, do you dwell on or feel cheated by that uninteresting main character? Are most main characters/player controlled characters used as "tools" to interact with the game world, rather than being used to enrich the plot?

I was reading some Battle on the Homefront previews; and they seemed to attempt to draw emotions. Do you believe it is necessary for video games to contain strong emotional messages to further the standing of video games as art? One drawback I can find with this is the possible controversies concerning the use of depictions of war to evoke emotional response.

With the new motion controls such as Kinect and Move it opens up possibilities of old genres being rehashed or genres that never worked on consoles working. Such as a RTS that can actually be played competitively on consoles with the help of Kinect or an Myst game that uses the Kinect to do the actions to solve puzzles to create a deep immersion.

What genres do you think could actually see benefit from these new motion control peripherals

What game intro(s) (aka the opening movie) is the most memorable to you? Intros like Tekken 2 or Tekken Tag are an example.

On Oct 21st, 2 men armed with assault rifles walked into a Baltimore area Gamestop and took its employee's hostage. Their demands were not money, but a copy of Call of Duty Black Ops. They were given a box of about 100 copies of the game and then decided to spare the Gamestop employees' very strange and unlucky lives.

Why am I telling you this? Because its a perfect segue into my question!

Have you ever had been so hyped about a game, so excited and exhilarated that the wait till its due date becomes almost painful? If so, what game?

With the move from Left 4 dead to its sequel, Valve worked up various new 'special infected'. If you were tasked with designing a new special infected for left 4 dead 3 - what traits would you like this zombie to have and how would they translate into the game.

Sonic Colors is being considered one of the most well received Sonic games in a while. However, in a recent review, Gametrailers (I believe) docked the game points for being too difficult. As of recent, this has happened for some other games as well.

Do you believe that it's okay for reviews to dock points from a game for being too hard, when you're given all of the tools for success?
