Prevaricate, is an advanced word for...LYING...;)

and YOU my friend, at the very least, have my respect for being a COMIC fan...first!

You'd think the site was called 'Videovine'...based on the amount of video game threads...:(

The Godhead says:

"True dat, man. I mean, don't get me wrong: I have nothing against video games. I mean, Mortal Kombat, GTA, and the Evil Dead games are all that keep me sane sometimes, but ater completing them, you feel like you've just wasted however many hours. I mean, I dunno, when I beat Zelda, there was nothing there, emotion wise. Now, when I finished Watchmen, by Alan Moore? Different story friend, believe me..."

I figure, given recent events that this thread deserves to be bumped. So, Comicvine or Giantbomb?

Edit: Or both?

Well...since I like comics slightly more than games (plus adding to that fact that most of my games are comic-based) and that CV's community is tighter and more user-friendly, I give it to CV ^^

Comics are first, but I like the games too.

Comics easy they are more important and carry far greater weight than a video game which is fun for the moment but a great story is timeless and never a waste of time.

I really don't play very much video games anymore, but I still read a lot of comics. I just enjoy comics much more.

I don't really have a choice, they're more like variety. You get god games, you get good comics, you get bad games, you get bad comics.
Unless i compare specific comics to specific video games, i can't make up my mind. :p

Simulacrum: Skill

I've enjoyed both.

Comic books entertain our fantasies about vigilante justice (usually).

Video games entreat our yearning for simulated combat, play, and/or adventure.

Comic book superheroes have made appearances in video games as have American horror film monsters such as Leatherface and Jason Voorhees.

Video games can explore environment-perception acuity or terrain flexibility. I'm waiting for a great Aquaman (DC Comics) adapted video game.

If we look at war-simulation video games, we get a nice synthesis of comic book entertainment and general video game thrills.

Maybe it's all about 'mortality mirrors.'

Comics books have higher endurance, versatility, potential high level pyrotechnic attacks.

Video games have a stronger base and blunt force attacks. Definitely has electricity based fight-feats, possible hospitalizations.

Too close to call.
