Each week throws off several new video game lists ranging from the humorous to the trivial. What's better? A list of those. Here's a roundup of the rundowns out there.
•Six Kinect Accidents Waiting to Happen [The Kartel] Sure as shit we're going to see a ton of videos, many faked, of people putting their limbs through a plasma screen once this comes out in November. The Kartel's got a handle on what we can expect.
•Fourteen Actually Amazing Video Game Movie Fan Trailers [Ranker] It's more likely these are actually crap, but by the A-for-effort standard of fan-made films, lots are pretty good. I especially enjoy Paperboy. How many times can Papa get shot for no good reason? And is that Seth Rogen as the construction worker?
•10 Worst Video Games Ever Made [Smashing Lists] Atari 2600 Pac-Man, Superman on the Nintendo 64, Shaq Fu, scoop of chocolate, scoop of vanilla, don't waste my time.
•Five Unwinnable Situations from 1980s Video Games [Unwinnable. What else?] It used to be that game design allowed for players to find themselves in completely unresolvable situations, forcing them to restart the game and (hopefully) figure out what they did wrong. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was by far the most fiendish but, one must admit, entirely within the character of the series.
•Five Things Hardcore Gamers Need to Get Over [Koku Gamer] Not on this list: Sports games are big sellers, and there are plenty of buyers happy to pick them up every year for accurate rosters.
