I'm an avid reader of scifi, fantasy, and comic books (which I got as bribes for good grades), and spend way too much time on video games. After a not-too-healthy series of server firsts in WoW, I spend most of my online time in World of Tanks.
Movie: Galaxy Quest, for being a parody of everything I love and a good example of the very genre it's mocking. Book: I can't choose, but I'm rereading the DeathGate Cycle, so I'll go with that. Comic: At the moment, Saga, although Wolverine and the X-Men is reminding me why I loved the X-Men in the first place Video Game: I'm torn between Daggerfall, which was my introduction to open world fantasy gaming, and the Portal games, which are a perfect example of how video games can tell a story that rivals more traditional storytelling media.
Fly, you fools...to the Batmobile!
My biggest requirements are that it's active and interesting (to me), but I'm likely to stick around if a group is welcoming and friendly. I'm not easily offended, but if a group tends to sneer at others (friendly mocking is fine) or take itself too seriously, I'm less inclined to keep attending.
