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 7 Most Brutal Video Game Revenge Stories [Ranker] Note: They're not talking about in-game revenge. They're talking about beatings and killings perpetrated IRL, typically for stuff that happened in-game. Not on this list: The Chinese wallhack cheater who got stabbed in the head (above). Nor, for that matter, is Zachary Moir, the infamous Xbox Taco Assailant
•Top 10 Epic Sniper Skills of 2011 Caught on Video [GameRanx] Ten clips of long-range, across-the-map dobule-headshots and such, all in bite-sized video format. Most are about 20 to 30 seconds each, two are 90 seconds to two minutes. Scarf 'em up like popcorn.
•The 50 Most Unique Firearms in Video Games [Site] The top 10 of these are all de rigeur though No. 4 we haven't seen in a very long time. Doom's venerable BFG 9000 only rates No. 14
•7 Classic Video Games That Are Older Than You Think [Cracked] Another great list from Cracked but note, they are not talking about a series whose first game came out longer ago than you think; they're talking about mostly modern concepts that have roots in other games from well before. The notorious 1930s predecessor of Duck Hunt is on the list, but did you know it had its own Asshole Dog, too?
•Ten Star Wars PC Games Every Fan Should Have Played [MaximumPC] Kind of disappointed Rebel Assault II isn't on here, I thought it was better than its predecessor.Star Wars: Galaxies is present but not The Old Republic, which I confused for KOTOR in a fast read through. Sorry bout dat.
