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.
•Top 10 Games To Play When You're Depressed [Calm Down Tom] Note, this is not the advice of a professional therapist. That accounts for Dead Rising 2 on this list, and not something like Flower or Scribblenauts.

•Five Reasons Gaming on a Mac Will No Longer Suck [iSmashPhone] Look, I'm a Mac user of the past 25 years and a hardcore gamer. This train ain't coming. Gaming on the Mac will always suck.
•Five Things We Learned From Counter-Strike [Joystick Division] The lesson about witch hunts is particularly hilarious. And true.
