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 25 Most Androgynous Video Game Characters [UGO] Give UGO some credit, it actually includes androgynous characters from series other than Final Fantasy, which could account for a list 10 times this long by itself.
•Hardcore Games to Convert Your Girlfriend [Split-Screen] The definition of "hardcore game" is itself a long-winded argument and unfortunately, Split-Screen's not talking about clear cut core titles like Fallout: New Vegas or Just Cause 2. Two on the list are The Sims and Viva Piñata. Is that really what you want to play with your girlfriend?
•Eight Less Ambitious Gaming Covers [GameFront] OK, OK, OK, "God of Wok" got me to laugh.
•10 Games That Could Make the PSP2/NGP a Success [Gaming Bolt] Some no-brainers here, like God of War. Other titles, like Braid, while that's undeniably a great game, I don't think a port is going to do more for the platform than it would for the title's sales. A Metal Gear Solid game, especially one taking advantage of this cloud concept we reported on Friday, probably would be more of a platform-definer.
•10 Superheroes and Supervillains Who Need a Solo Video Game [Joystick Division] Sorry, JD, Catwoman's had her shot. Here are two words you missed: Stilt-Man.
