Thanks for keeping the topics and conversation going in a Geeky fashion. Thanks to the regulars and all the lurkers for slowly creeping the message count to 500, we love you, so stunning, so brave.

You know the rules: Post anything Geek or Nerd related. Whether it's about video games, movies, music, comics, television, board games wrestling, etc.

As per usual we have an opening question to keep the conversation going.

If you were stuck in a tropical paradise with food, water, shelter, the Internet, and your health in tact, but for that reward you only get to play 5 video games for the rest of your life, what 5 games, would you bring with you, and why?

Bonus Question: What 5 games would you not bring because they would make the paradise a nightmare?

Wrap up from "Valley of the Geeks" in the upcoming post.
We are who we choose to be.

Huh?

Plus how'd you be stuck in that scenario anyway? And would there be very fine women?

If it's a tropical paradise, I'd probably be less inclined to play games at all as opposed to just enjoying the experience. Especially if it seems like food, water, shelter, and health isn't going to be a dangerous factor. Even more so if there friendly local natives.

But if I had to bring anything, I'd probably just bring Minecraft. That's all the game you really need.

Though the usual cheat answer is I'd bring some popular multiplayer-only game so I could go online and tell people I was marooned and have them send people to find me. Assuming I actually wanted to leave, rather than just stay in, you know, paradise.

There really aren't a ton of games that would ruin the experience simply by being there, because it isn't that hard to just not play them. I mean, I could always use Final Fantasy VIII as a drink coaster.

But if it's just a question of "Ehh, which games would you never, ever play", it'd probably be a list way, way longer than just 5 games.

Speaking of which...

PS3 had a better library. Eventually.

I'd strongly disagree with this. At least from my perspective.

When I was comparing the PS3 and 360 to decide which one to get, it basically came down to a choice between whether or not I wanted to play Uncharted or Halo. At the time Halo was the easy answer, and afterwards there were plenty of games on the 360 that made the purchase worthwhile. But PS3 never really evolved beyond "The console that has Uncharted."

Sure, the PS3 had God of War and Last of Us, but I didn't (and still don't) give a damn about either. And I have trouble thinking of a single other game the console had as an exclusive that mattered at all.

Conversely, the 360 had the Halo games (5 games, because you've got Halo 3, Halo 4, and Reach as well as ODST and Halo Wars) and the original Mass Effect (PS3 eventually got this, but not until the entire generation was almost effectively over and it was mostly pointless). It also had Fable III (which I really enjoyed no matter how much people s*** on it) and Witcher 2. In the arcade it also had UNO (which has always been a guilty pleasure for me), the Tron game from forever ago, and Marathon. They also had the Keflings games that my GF absolutely loved for a while, and games like Catan and Carcassonne.

Nearly every other game on either system is available for both, so don't really matter when comparing the two directly. And ultimately, the 360 has always had more and better games that I actually wanted to play, so I've never regretted not owning a PS3.

Especially since the only games on it that I actually wanted to play - Uncharted 1-3 - are now on the PS4 anyway (and I own them).

Meanwhile, the Xbox One is the console this gen that has zero exclusives I care about at all. Even Halo has turned to crap and means nothing to me now.

So many great exclusives though. It did have a slow start, of course.

LBP, inFamous, Ratchet, Killzone, Journey, White Knight Chronicles, Resistance, Demon's Souls, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Wipeout

Understandable if a lot of those aren't appealing to you though.

Imagine depending on a multiplayer game to seek rescue on an island, people will think that you are roleplaying as some drunk pirate or something.
