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.
•Shovelware for Achievement Whores [UGO] Well researched list that reads like a boosting guide for ultra-score seekers. Many of the titles are from the early days of Gamerscore, when no one really knew what to do with it or how to award it. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, a favorite of our friend Kristen, is No. 1.
•Five Games Canceled Due to Disasters [The Kartel] Not sure if what canceled "Six Days in Fallujah" is actually classifiable as a disaster, though the project certainly is. The others were caught in the wake of 9/11 and the recent Japan quake and tsunami.
•The 50 Greatest Gaming Gopher Memes [Ranker] Had no idea Gaming Gopher was a meme. Had no idea Gaming Gopher existed.
•E3 2011: 10 Games That Will Drop Your Jaws [Gaming Bolt] Jaw-dropping would imply that one's mouth is hanging open in surprise. The only thing that could possibly be surprising be surprising about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is news that Activision is not making it. This unannounced yet inevitable game is this list's No. 1.
•The 25 Best Stories in Video Games [Complex] Combing through this list for weak entries was a futile search; I have to say they got everything right. Might disagree about the ordering, but these are 25 games that belong in this discussion. No. 1 is Ocarina of Time.
