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.
•Fifteen Modders Who Changed PC Gaming [Gaming Bolt] A little out of my depth here, as a console and Mac guy, but I can certainly respect the depth and quality of modded PC gaming, something simply unavailable to other platforms. Garry's Mod is, indisputably, the No. 1 here.
•Top 10 Video Game Controllers of All Time [Planet Xbox 360] The Duke is an underrated No. 6 here. Nowhere is the Atari 2600 joystick, or the ColecoVision's. (But the hell with the Intellivision's weird-ass phone thing.) The list gives the NES pad the No. 1 and it's the oldest thing on here. But fogeys like me who remember the Wico Command Control and Le Stick would like to see those get a little love.
•Thirteen Reasons Why You Should Stop Playing World of Warcraft [UK Online Games] You'll get fat, you'll get sick, you'll lose your marriage, you'll never get married, you'll become addicted, you'll die and your dick will fall off. In that order! Basically every caricature, stereotype and anecdotal scare story about MMOs all summarized here.
•Top 10 Most Annoying Video Game Enemies [Old-Wizard.com] Egg Plant Wizard from Kid Icarus is number one, but where the hell are the birds from Ninja Gaiden? The blonde in the roadster from Paperboy? Where is Asshole Dog from Duck Hunt?
•The Top Nine Unlicensed Video Games [The Kartel] This reads more like Tengen's greatest hits, and with Gauntlet, Tetris and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom appearing on here - unlicensed - it's then even more like an ode to Tengen's chutzpah.
