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 Video Game Enemies We Love to Kill [Planet Xbox 360] I guess GTA hookers aren't exactly enemies, so, they don't make the list. Rooftop archers from Assassin's Creed should have gone on here, just because they're so compliantly stupid. No. 1 is zombies, of course.
•Nine Cockiest Video Game Characters of All Time [EgoTV] Brucie Kibbutz got shortchanged at No. 9. Cocky implies some level of not-backing-it-up, after all. That said, Duke Nukem's perfect for No. 1, because if anything ever failed to deliver, it's that franchise.
•Sixteen Secret Lost References in Video Games [Games Radar] Yes yes, the finale's tonight, and Games Radar capitalizes on that with this bunch. But props to them for spotting Oceanic Airlines ads in, of all things, Cal Ripken's Real Baseball.
•The Five Best Weapons of the Halo: Reach Beta [Joystick Division] Grenade launcher. The others might be more effective, but when you pull off a perfectly-timed, long range bombing with this sucker, few kills are more satisfying.
•The 10 Worst Anti-Video Game Warnings [UGO] We're by now extremely familiar with the playbook for anti-video game fearmongering. What makes this worth a look is Capt. Lou Albano, as Mario, telling kids that doing drugs places their souls in eternal jeopardy. Seriously, stay with it to the end. That's No. 1 with a bullet.
