I'll just say it: I like the COD games. I've not played all of them, though. One of the things I both love and hate about them is that they try to be as close to films as possible. It makes for both an intriguing story, and fun to play the first time round, but it's not as interesting with more playthroughs - except for when you try them on the higher difficulties. I remember one assault on a fortified hill in COD 3 that was pleasurably annoying - and annoying, too, when it doesn't give you much choice. I've always had the impression that Treyarch were bigger offenders than IW at this, though.

Like Vile, I am a SP player. That's where I get the most enjoyment out of a game, so I tend to wait until they're lower in price, to get them, as I feel they're not worth the £40 new sale price.

As for Mario, I've only played a handful of those, and the most current one was the Mario Kart game for the Wii. Which I happened to enjoy quite a lot. I would play it with my sister in the room, which perhaps made it a lot more enjoyable than it would have been had I played it, for the majority, on my own.

I've never played the GTA games to comment.

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to add my most overrated media: TV talent shows.

I haven't played much of anything beyond the X-Box era so perhaps video games have gone up since then. I just find them a waste of time.

GTA disturbs me profoundly. Almost as much as the Dante's Inferno game. Confused

I'm growing disillusioned with Facebook, but Twitter still has the novelty factor. Anyone else feel the same way?

I spend more time on Tumblr than Facebook or Twitter.

I use Facebook a lot, largely because most of my friends live several hours away, so its the easiest way to keep up with them. Twitter I use maybe once every couple of months, used to use it more when I ran my own forum (nothing to do with Star Wars :p)

I actually probably use MSN more than anything else, or Skype maybe.

Totally. I love Twitter, but I feel I would need to forfeit my soul if I signed up on Facebook. Razz

The fate of my soul may be in question, but at least I can keep up with my classmates. Wink

I can keep in touch with my friends and relatives, and their skype chat is better than the actual skype connection. I'll stick with Facebook.

Friends. The TV show, not people who you enjoy spending your time with.

I might get murdered for this....but I think The Hunger Games is overrated.

Don't worry, I'm with you. It was entertaining but like most super-popular media these days its not that incredible, just ok. RotS for instance, or things like that.
