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 Best First Levels in Video Games [UGO] As a serial restarter, this is a list I can get behind. Uncharted 2's opener was a fantastic blend of tutorial and cinema, and it's No. 25. Fallout 3 and KOTOR are included in a strong mix of genres for a really well done list.
•9 Greatest Warlocks in Video Game History [Ranker] Keying on another Charlie Sheen meme, Ranker runs with his claim to be a warlock and serves up the nine best male witches from video games. Ganondorf Dragmire is the obvious No. 1. Shang Tsung shows up at No. 3, proving warlocks aren't just RPG characters.
•The 9 Most Insane Video Game Characters (and Their Tweets) [Complex] Complex continues the flogging of Charlie Sheen as a trending topic, this time adding in some imagined Tweets their list of nine nutballs would send. Kefka Palazzo of Final Fantasy VI is No. 1. He also doesn't use punctuation, and runs out of characters.
•The Top 5 Unconventional Means of Travel in Video Games [Joystick Division] The Man Cannon in Metal Gear Online would be my number one, but Final Fantasy gets another top draw, with FFX's bizarre shoopuf.
•Ten Gaming Incidents that Caused Us to ROFL [GamingBolt] LeeRoy Jenkins is No. 1, but the premise is a good excuse to dig up Ken Kutaragi and the Ring King blowjobs.
