I need carpet selection advice!

I am new to this forum and am looking for advice from people who understand the dif types of carpet. I do not care much about style. I just want to know what kind of carpet is best for a heavily traffic family room. I would like it to be comfortable to lie on and EASY to keep clean! I don't want to be fooled by advertising which makes everything sound good. I just want to make a wise decision that results in a carpet that wears well and isn't overpriced. ANy takers?

Thank you so much!

Take a look at this vid:


It's actually a decent video on the basics of choosing a carpet.

As far as prices, "you get what you pay for", this applies to carpet. For a decent carpet, expect to pay $3+ a sqft, not counting pad.
