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.
•7 Glaring Reasons Why Mario is a Dick [Ranker] He may be the cheerful plumber-savior of the Mushroom Kingdom, but deep-a-down, he's-a-douchebagga, says Ranker, which points out how history has glossed over Mario's crimes in Donkey Kong Jr.
•Top 10 Games with Embarrassing Dialogue [Gaming Bolt] To the writer's credit, he doesn't rely on the obvious tortured engrish of Zero Wing and the NES days to fill out this list, which supplies video examples of games' worst scripting and acting.
•The Top 10 Game Mods of All Time [The Creator's Project] PC gamers can probably figure out the top 5 of these without looking. Personally, I'd have included the mid-1990s mods for X-Wing and, especially, Dark Forces. The Dark Forces mod community built some amazing levels.
•Top 10 Character Skills You Wish You Had [Megabits of Gaming] If I had to pick one of these, it would be bullet time. With bullet time you'd never get caught masturbating. Wait was that my out-loud voice?
•Top Five Comic-Book Games to PLay During Comic-Con [Joystick Division] The Con is now over, but you can keep its spirit alive with these console games; when I get home I know I'm going to play Batman: Arkham Asylum, and also D.C. Universe Online.
