    The Xbox controller still, for some arse backwards reason, has a memetic reputation in some sectors due to the original Xbox controller which was pretty big. Its second revision was much more manageable and the 360 Elite controller became, and has basically remained, the gold standard in controller design. Sony’s DualShock controller is long due for an overhaul that acknowledges that the analogue sticks being side by side is uncomfortable and that their trigger design is shit.

    I have a 360 and have had 2 XBOs. I prefer the DS. I don't base my opinions on what others are saying about something. I base them on my own experience. I don't really care what the gaming community says is cool.

    XBOs are POS.

    The Xbox One has no real reason to exist.

    For the most part, yeah. Exclusives aren't that great.

    I haven't gotten the X or Elite so I can't speak to those. The Elite seems like it eliminates the need for an expensive PC which is kind of cool.

    I wish there weren’t exclusives. Playing any game on any platform would be wonderful.

    I don't get the big deal about autographs? Its just some famous person writing their name on something.

    All beer is gross except for Corona, which is barely tolerable. Ale is just okay, but not something I'd go out of my way to drink. The only time I've ever liked beer is when it was mixed with something sweet.

    It's a bit more than that for me. I think it's cool to meet and get things signed by people who you admire for their talents.

    I attend a great many comic and pop culture conventions and like to get sketches from artists, signatures on comic books and Funko Pops and photo-ops from celebrities. Personally, I like to get autographs as a memento of when I've met someone that does something that I enjoy, whether it be acting, voice acting, sports, WWE wrestling, animation or artistry. For example, I got to meet Peter Cullen earlier this year, who is a REALLY nice guy, and got him to sign an Optimus Prime Funko Pop and got a photo with him. I had a brief, but pleasant conversation with him about Transformers, which is something that I will never forget.

    I also got to meet Magic Johnson, got a pic with him and got to briefly talk Lakers and Celtics with him. I also have his signature on his McFarlane figure which memorialized the event. I've added it and many others to my signature shrine that I proudly display. When I get 8x10's signed, I add them to my signature binder. Maybe one day, I'll boggle everyone's minds by posting in the signature thread exactly how many items I have signed in my collection.

    In a nutshell, I get autographs for the memories and the interactions with people who I grew up admiring. It's also great to have positive stories to tell about them.

    I actually agree, and with an autograph, I try to get a photo-op, too, unless they're asking for an offensively outrageous amount.

    Lately I've been getting back into beer. It's so tasty. Got to be the right one for me though. I'm definitely a beer snob. I'm an alcohol in general snob too actually. I can't and won't drink cheap gut rott crap.

    I used to sneak a can of beer from the fridge...

    ...when I was 3 years old...

    When I tried it again at 21, I spit it out and ran to the bathroom yelling MOUTHWASH!!! MOUTHWASH!!!

    so I don't drink beer.

    Hard liquor on the other hand, :) 

    Sega Genesis 6-button controller is the best controller. Accept it.

    I'm into mixed drinks and the sweet stuff that sneaks up on you after a couple rounds: Margaritas, Daiquiris, Long Island's, Caribou Lou's (which very few barkeeps know). More often than not, when I ask for a Caribou Lou, I have to Google the ingredients and show it to the bartender.

    Just about all my friends are beer guys, but I never got into it as it's truly an acquired taste. Beer was always too strong for me except for Corona, but even then, it takes me a couple of hours to polish off one bottle. My friends are also into taking tequila shots. I'll do one or two just to be social, but I know my limitations and never exceed that.

    As someone who works mainly in high school education, I don't believe the common opinion that very student deserves to graduates. A few students, especially those that are chronic bullies or go out of their way to chronically ditch, deserve to fail and could benefit from the harsh realities of the modern adult world without even a high school diploma, at least for a few years. That's not a opinion I'm going to share at work.

    Man, filthiest hangover I ever had was from a night some buddies and I drank a case of wine that cost about $12. It wasn’t great going down but by Christ did it bite us the next day.

    I stopped drinking carbonated beverages over 10-years ago, if not longer. The last time I had any beer was about six years ago, just because I missed the rich flavor of Killian's.
    Aftwr about three swallows I got horribly sick, feeling bloated as hell.

    I hated beer my whole life mainly just because all of it was shit like Budweiser, Coors, Pilsner, Heinekin, etc. How do people drink that swill and claim it's "good" with a straight face?? Anyway, it wasn't until my mid 30's around 2010-11 that stumbled onto some flavored craft beers which immediately changed the entire game for me. For as eye roll as the whole craft beer trendy insurgence undoubtedly is now, man oh man, a lot of great beer has indeed come from it.
