    For myself, these are my six choices:
    #1. Donkey Kong ‘94
    - Year: 1994
    - Producer: Nintendo
    - System(s): Gameboy

The human can engage in everyday life in the village, interact with the animals, attend events, and contribute to the village's development.

    #3. The Sims 3

    - Producer: Maxis Redwood Shores

    #4. Puyo Puyo Tetris
    - Year: 2014
    - Producer: Sonic Team
    - System(s): Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation Vita
    PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, & Microsoft Windows

    - Summary: Puyo Puyo Tetris is a combination of the Puyo Puyo and Tetris series featuring seven game modes (Adventure, Big Bang, Challenge, Fusion, Party, Swap, Versus), which can be played with up to four players, both locally or online, or against computer opponents.

    #5. Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics

This diverse collection includes games from all over the world across multiple genres, from familiar favorites like Chess to international hits like Mancala that have been around for 100s of years.

    #6. Microsoft Flight Simulator
    - Year: 2020
    - Producer: Asobo Studio
    - System(s): Microsoft Windows, OpenXR, & Xbox Series X/S
    - Completion: 146 hours
    - Summary: An amateur flight simulator featuring the topography of the entire Earth, in addition to real-world data to generate real-time weather & effects, realistic flight control surfaces, and real-time elements like natural weather and real-world air traffic. The gameplay includes new features like landing challenges and helpers, as well as safaris where pilots can photograph animals from the air.

    The only one I am doubting at the moment is subbing out Donkey Kong '94 for Pac-Man Championship Edition DX.

    (I didn't know if folks still wanted to continue, but yeah, let's keep it up)

    Today's genre/category is: Adventure Movies

    Best-Adventure-Films-of-All-Time.jpg

    What six adventure movies do you choose for your communal doomsday bunker?

    Are you favoring a classic, defining film in the genre or something you know a group of folks can enjoy year after year? Are you going to try to split up your picks by leading actor or director, or will your list be defined by franchises?

    I'll give a heads up that fantasy & superheroes films will be given their own separate days, so don't feel pressured to have to include any of them here.

    1. Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (1989)
    The epitome of what an adventure movie is to me. Harrison Ford is firing on all cylinders, and the interplay with Sean Connery is superb. The tank scene is one of my all-time favorites in any movie.

    2. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
    I know this is probably seen more as an Action movie, but I would classify it as an adventure movie, as it's less about the spectacle then the story to me. Probably one of my favorite movies of all time, Fury road effortlessly takes what made Mad Max 1 & 2 and made it new in the best way. Can you really say you've driven through Atlanta Traffic without screaming "WITNESS ME!"

    3. The Rocketeer (1991)
    This movie cemented my love of Aviation, punching Nazis, movies, and Jennifer Connolly. I can't think of a more formative film to my young mind and DISNEY WHY WONT YOU REBOOT THIS FUCKING MOVIE! IT'D BE AN EXCUSE TO PRINT MONEY!

    4. True Grit (2010)
    The Cohens can do no wrong in my eyes, but I was nervous when I heard they were remaking one of the most iconic westerns. But this was no slouch, they brought a realness and a roughness to the original, and imbued it with just a tinge of humor in all the right places.

    5. Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)
    This is a movie I watch every Thanksgiving, but in all honesty, it's a good movie for any season. John Candy is just swallowing every moment he's on screen without even chewing.
    You feel Steve Martin's honest exasperation but you can't help but root for the shlummy Candy.

    6. The Goonies (1985)
    Confession time: I didn't see The Goonies until I was a teenager. I know a lot of people think it's just 80's schlock but god help me, I think it's a fantastic movie. Gun to my head, I'm picking a movie to watch when I'm at home sick, sipping some chicken broth and sprite, it's gonne be the goonies.

    I'm going to cheat a little.

    1.-3. Bill and Ted Trilogy. A couple bad lines aside these movies are great, funny, and the world gets saved in more ways than one.

    4. The Phantom. Blly Zane as a pulp superhero, come on.

    5. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. This is my favorite one in the series, and everyone plays very well off each other. Plus the stuff with the Grail at the end is awesome.

    6. Jumanji. A board game takes over a town and some kids have to play through to save it? Sign me up.

    What six comedic sitcom TV shows do you choose for your communal doomsday bunker?

    Are you leaning towards something with hefty weight (say, Cheers) or a critical darling that while shorter may have value in repeated viewings over the years (eg: The Good Place)? Are you going to try to split up your picks by decade, or will your list be entirely 90's sitcoms?

    It's kind of hard to feel the need to include Arrested Development and/or 30 Rock (which vie for the same position) due to, you know, Problematic Shit, but they were also so formative before I really knew that, and I feel like if you can set aside the Problematic Shit they are really fucking funny shows.
