I didn't pick and wax poetic on the following technological hits for GQ/Details's Men.style.com year-end collection. I use each and every one of these items in my daily routine. That is, before I chopper myself to my private island off Fiji and tip my hair with gold flake as I watch all new films in Real (3-)D.
An excerpt concerning video games, about which I know less each year:
Sure, Halo has the name recognition (and, OK, the sales), but BioShock elevates the action shooter into something close to an art form. And while the impressionistic graphics (think Blade Runner underwater) and intuitive game play are great, what really differentiates the game is the highfalutin narrative, which is intended as a retort to Atlas Shrugged. Pretentious? Maybe a little. But it's still more fun than reading Ayn Rand.
Why Glass Shallot?
Because we're part of the problem.
