    I'm planning on making a chart that contains a list of the five most awesome things of the below media.
    • Videogames
    • Movies
    • Music
    • Books
    I need three (or more) suggestions for each thing listed above. Select games/movies/music/books that you feel are the greatest of their genre and ones that people simply must see/play/read. Feel free to pick games/movies/music/books that are thought-provoking or simply just make you feel good.

    Post in this format
    Code:
    [b]Videogames[/b]

    Just pick what you feel is the best of its category.

    I'll gather a number of the suggestions and create a poll to narrow it down to five.
