Deadly Games

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.

Eight People Who Died Playing Video Games [Ranker] I'll assume Polybius isn't on the list because if the game's true existence can't be confirmed, then the suicides it was rumored to cause are likewise unconfirmed. The other eight are well known tragedies, including the most recent, from the U.K.

The 10 Lamest Superheros [Walyou] I'll stretch the tent here to include our comic-book brethren for Walyou's well researched list, which doesn't default to the usual dumb shit like Stilt-Man and half the Legion of Super-Heroes' membership.

The 10 Most Horrific Faces in Video Games [Gaming Bolt] Another well assembled list, including mugs that aren't just frightening, they're also disturbing, which is why I'm surprised Piggsy from Manhunt isn't here.

Seven Video Game Cereals We Want to Eat [1Up] No, it's not the Nintendo Cereal System. It's a list of user-submitted game-themed cereals that don't exist. Where have we seen that before?

Ten Incredible Chests in Video Games [Joystick Division] I'd like to tell you this includes male pectorals; I'd like to tell you it's a joke that includes the Warcraft Battlechest or the lootable chests in Borderlands Nope, it's about bewbs, although two men are on this list.
