that pie > cake: the cake is a lie. exception may be black forest cake, although the notion that black forest cake being > any / cumulation of all pies, is interesting.
2 games that have piqued my interest because of their interesting reviews are Portal and bioshock. i won't deny, the dark humor and psychologically disturbing setting is a great appeal to me. they're not particularly new games but i somehow have this craving to start playing games again, and i'm not really in the market for a high end gaming machine.
also accepting suggestions if anyone has any.
