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 Seven Reasons the News Doesn't Want You Playing Video Games [Ranker] A baker's half-dozen rounding up the MSM's greatest misses from recent history. I like "Video Games are Pro-War." So is everyone who works for Fox News.

Top 5 Kinect Fails That Will Make You Cringe, Laugh or Chide [Joystick Division] Basically four YouTube videos of unknown authenticity (such as the kicked cat) and a gigantic compilation at the end.
