I noticed that it's pretty barren around these parts.

I mean, the two recent topics with the most responses are, that question one, which I don't even understand. Do you just reply to other people's random questions with another uncorrelated question for someone else? I don't even...It just feels like watching a room full of curious deaf people, with no arms.

The other topic is Neo's one about how much he hates himself. It teased the nipples of philosophy for a little while but then it just crept back to being a moody moo. At least there is some consistency there, like returning home after a year to find your bedroom is the same as when you left it, even though you left it covered in fresh milk. However, if I came back to find Neo being positive and chirpy then I would have to firmly place both hands on my desk and bravely fight back the tears.

Anywoo, I'm sure if we rub our foreheads against one another we can find something rich and delicious to talk about.

Games maybe? You want to talk about games? Ok, I know.

Out of all the games you know, what was the best way of recovering health? Or, if you can think up a more interesting/entertaining idea then bring it up, so we can all twiddle our mustaches and talk amongst ourselves about how we like you now.

Though, you still can't come with us to the disco, there's girls there.

I'll get the ball rolling then.

I liked it in Far Cry 2 when your health was critical, you stab yourself in the shin with a knife. It always felt like I was just prolonging the inevitable. After a torrent of bullets hit me in the face I would skulk off, sit in a bush and pry a solitary bullet out of my leg with a knife, that I was using to slash potentially disease ridden ne'erdowells only seconds before.

Action-tastic.

I think WET is entirely stupid for it's health regeneration system. I mean sure, a bit of alcohol would certainly kill off some of the pain, but you're still going to bleed to death. Put the bottle down and go find a first aid kit.

Watching a string of high-fives is pretty heart warming, I'll give you that. Though, the string does have to come to an end eventually. That's life though isn't it?

Grasping at the temporary moments of satisfaction before they disappear, placing you back at the harrowing starting line with nothing but memories and a void of how impermanent the finish line feels to you.

Unless......A circle of high-fives? There we go, cheer up.

I was actually hoping it was a video of health regeneration or something. So...no, it's ok. That video was fine.........no no, don't....don't even worry about it. Totally fine.

Another one, in Banjo Kazooie. I'm pretty sure if you're sitting there eating that much honey, you're going to get something besides your health back.

...It's diabetes.

V.I.P.
I like how it returns gradually in Assassin's Creed, and how it's not really health but how in sync you are with the ancestor. Of course I find the whole concept of the animus extremely clever.

I'd like to see a health system where they regain life by destroying their enemies. Invincibility is granted for a limited time if they first kill the enemy's loved ones, bonus health for ripping out the enemy's heart and placing it in the hands of their only surviving child.

Kidding. I wouldn't mind a game where they regain health based on taking various medical supplies or picking up hearts.

I like the one this [Link), where you needed to lean against the wall for some time to heal.
