What is a “botis”? Perhaps an ancient Sumerian god, or some kind of beetle? A metal band from Philadelphia? If you picked the third option, you are correct! Check out what these heavy hitters had to say about their favorite nerdy media:
“Favorite movie of all time, go!”
Erik: Total Recall (1990) Scifi without the boring shit. Aliens, exploding heads, robot cars, mind control, Mars, tits, guns, and gore.
Graham: Hereditary (2018) is my favorite recent movie. Hail Paimon!
Greg: Legend of the Drunken Master (1994) has it all — action, drama, comedy, history sorta, an axe gang, and Jackie Chan actually getting burned on hot coals.
Peter: LOTR trilogy (I know I’m cheating). I’m pretty sure they’re just objectively the best fantasy movies ever created.
Erik: In the Face of Death by Peter Noll. A man with terminal cancer foregoes treatment and writes a book about his experience leading up to his death, creating a treasure trove of insight and philosophy.
Graham: House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski is one of the few books that I’ve read multiple times. It’s a crazy feat of immersive experimental fiction. My favorite synopsis that I’ve heard is “a book about a book about a film about a house.”
Greg: NFPA – National Electric Code, 2017 edition. I can’t put the darn thing down.
Peter: Return of the King by Tolkien. My tastes are super diverse, you see.
“All right, what is or was your favorite game of all time?”
Erik: Deus Ex (2000). This game had everything. Futuristic locations and plot points, hacking, cyborgs, mechs, body augmentations, stealth, action, and RPG elements all rolled into a perfect package.
Graham: I played Guitar Hero III for hours on when I was a lad.
Greg: Last of Us, crazy story and character development. Actual tear jerker game.
Peter: Super Mario 64. Probably just because of nostalgia honestly, but it’s still a crazy game. I don’t play too many video games.
