Although, if working for the Escapist wouldn't pan out, I'd likely move to Australia over staying here in the U.S. of A. Although I'd likely end up going New Zealand.

I can be your guide... We can go visit Fe_Ninja!

To be fair, I'd move to North Carolina just to get out of Louisiana. Although, working for The Escapist would definitely be delicious icing on that cake.

I can understand the desire to get out of Louisiana, I certainly wouldn't be happy there. Personally I'd want to live in England... or Vancouver. I dunno, I love Canada a lot... I just hate Calgary and Alberta, there are no jobs here that aren't Oil related.

There was a joke about Calgary in one of my favorite comedy skits (Boot to the head!). But I empathize a lot of the whole Oil jobs thing, mostly because the two major jobs in my hometown are working in the overly expensive Casino (for Texan tourists), or working in one of the two major oil refineries just outside of town.

Thank goodness my projected career path isn't really region specific. I could do any of my life goals from just about anywhere in the world. Oh hell, did we just de-rail this thread?

Hurrah! I've always wanted to visit some of the Escapists, although I'm so far away from everyone else, it seems so absurdly impossible, or barring that, expensive. Maybe we should plan a meet-up in North Carolina, with guest stars Actual Escapist Staff, assuming any would be willing to pop by and say hello on their lunch break.

Susan Arendt:
Pull up a cookie and warm your feet by the fire, 'cause here comes Susan Arendt's list of her top five favorite games from this past year.

This just occurred to me... How does one "pull up a cookie"? If you'd like, I could grab a chair off of the stove, too. Fresh baked, too.

That one is done by a comedy troupe from Toronto... Calgary and Toronto have been at odds ever since Calgary started getting rich off of Oil Money.

Still, I'd like to be able to move to Vancouver, it's nicer there...higher crime rate though.

Were there to be an Escapist: Canada meetup, it'd probably be in Vancouver since that's where most of the Canadian Escapists seem to be.

Not that I'm trying to hint at specific dates or anything, but if you do go that route, you might want to advertise it ahead of time to draw as many Escapists about it as possible, maybe even some out-of-towners.

That might not be a bad plan, but it would probably be in '09 since goddamn Vancouver will be crazy in 2010. Also Vancouver is nicer in the summer.

Understandable. I most was just pushing because I was planning to maybe afford to go to the 'Couver Winter Olympics, but probably won't be able to afford it in '09. Maybe if I get crazy lucky, but I doubt it.

Well, make sure to do a detailed write-up about it when it goes down if I miss it. I'll happily join in on any of them if I can ever afford it... Freakin' money.

I just need to make the epic 12 hour trek over the rockies to get there, it'll likely cost me about $200 in gas money.

Its all about Left 4 Dead :P
I just love it so much...
/fanboy.

Looking at this years lists makes me realize that this year was quite bad for gaming. LBP is well done but lack of modding capabilities on consoles holds it back.

WOO!

Go Dead Space. Loved that game.
And LBP was AMAZING!
