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.
•The 50 Greatest Video Game Race Tracks [Breakdown Cover] With 50 tracks and videos for all of them, they've really done their homework on this one. The Mario Kart franchise makes it seven times, at Nos. 32, 29, 27, 13, 7, 4 and No. 1.
•The Eight Worst Nintendo Characters. Ever. [DamnLag] Asshole Dog from Duck Hunt is only No. 6? Well, Navi the Fairy is a very deserving No. 1, and Slippy Toad should be ahead of him, too, but seriously, Asshole Dog's at least No. 3.
•7 Games That Would Be Awesome On Kinect [GamingBolt] Fighting games and shooters make some sense, even RTS I understand. But I just don't think when Microsoft developed Kinect they had BioWare RPGs in mind.
•Video Gaming's 10 Unlikeliest Weapons [Den of Geek] Granted, you'll find about 500 of them in the Dead Rising series. But this really interesting list reminds us of the oh-so-deadly grocery bag from Manhunt, and the less-than-effective, but intriguingly rare, rolling pin in Fallout 3.
•10 Video Games Series That Have Not Modernized Well [OC Weekly] Sonic is, of course, the No.1, but it's probably axiomatic that the longer a game franchise ages, the more opportunities there are to complain about it. That said, Halo, Street Fighter and Mario in all his incarnations managed to escape scorn.
