Other than anime my favourite TV shows are The Old Simpsons, Chuck, Sherlock, IT Crowd, Monk, Peep Show, Inbetweeners, Father Ted, Black Adder and Black Books, basically all British comedies.
My favourite video game series are Age of Empires, Alan Wake, Assassin's Creed, Half-Life, Mafia, Max Payne, Metal Gear, Need For Speed Portal and The Sims.
I don't have any favourite books as I read only non-fiction literature and I don't read manga.
The first anime I've watched were shitty ones like Pokemon, Shaman King and Naruto, and I wasn't interested in anime but then I've seen Soul Eater and Death note and became an anime fan in about 2009.
I think there are basically 3 kinds of anime (or movies and series in general):
1. Sad anime, which appeal to your emotions and really move you and make you feel for the characters.
2. Funny anime which either make you laugh (all stupid moe and ecchi anime which I find unfunny also belong here) or you never get bored watchig them.
3. Smart anime which make you think and contain some more depth than usual.(I consider these the most valuable)
(IMO there shouldn't be more than 2 point difference between story and overall rating, the story is always the most important thing, then characters and entertainment value. I don't care about sound and animation very much as long as it is watchable, but it can still have influence on overall score)
