It's here, it's here, it's finally here! And by "it," we mean the final season of Lost, and by "here," we mean "finally escaping from our feverish conspiracy-theory-addled fantasies and onto our Tivos." After a long and question-filled break, Season 5 begins tonight with a two-part epsiode—and what better way to whet your appetite (ayo!) than with a totally gratuitous countdown from Hurley?
Yeah, we caught up with the big homie Jorge Garcia before the show kicked off, and since we know he's an avid gamer (he's currently balling out on PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies [click here to buy it now]), we tipped back some Dharma merlot and chopped it up about what's in his queue and his favorites from his yoof. Uh, his youth. Sorry, that's the merlot talking. That shit is musty.
FAVORITE HANDHELD GAME: "Advance Wars. That might be my all-time favorite from the old Game Boy Advance, and now the Nintendo DS—although the last time they put it out, they tried to make the characters kind of more realistic looking and it's not as fun. Somehow, killing cartoon people is more fun than killing real-looking people."
FAVORITE OLD-SCHOOL GAME: "Adventure. That was the first kind of game that you actually had to work on, it had a lot more puzzles to solve. It was harder; you had to study it a little bit to find the right keys for what you needed."
BEST GAMES HE HASN'T PLAYED YET: "Just because I want a good chunk of time when I do, I'm waiting to tap into Batman: Arkham Asylum and Uncharted 2. I hear incredible things about them."
GAME HE'S BEST AT: "So far I'm still undefeated in Buzz! Quiz TV. Anytime there's a guest at the house, I'll play against them, even when we play categories that I have no idea about, like fashion and sports. I've become a really good guesser.
GAME HE'S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO: "BioShock 2. No question."
