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 Most Epic Halloween Gaming Pumpkins of All Time [Ranker] The fact Ranker included 10 links to Kotaku has absolutely noooooo bearing on my choice of this as our No. 1 in this week's Top 10 of 5.
•Top 10 Video Game Shotguns of All Time [DeltaGamer] Self explanatory. I would have tossed in the SPAS 12 from Grand Theft Auto. With the auto lock-on, that thing was a one-shot kill beast.
•Ten Classics That Could Use A First-Person Remake [Joystick Division] Everyone threw a fit, gnashed their teeth, tore their garments, gloves off, stick down, no warning, challenged the Chiefs, called us names (called us names!) when it was revealed that X-Com would be remade into a first-person game. So, naturally, that humble expression of gratitude is why Full Throttle, Shenume and Command & Conquer could all use some FPS-ization.
•The Most Awful Accents In Gaming [Megabits of Gaming] I graduate school I had a friend from the Isle of Man who convinced me that there is meaningful cultural discrimination of Britons in the mass media. Namely, that in film and video games every fop, fascist, aristocrat and Death Star commander has a British accent. Megabits points out some other egregious dialectical manglings.
•5 Ways 'Arkham City' Proves I'm Under Qualified to be Batman [Cracked] I don't know about Robert Brockway, but the fact I'm 6-0, 220 and can bench 125 on a good day was enough evidence I'm underqualified to be the goddamn Batman. I'm also not a goddamn acrobat, detective or millionaire. I don't have to play a video game to tell you that.
