The Year's Biggest News In One Short Video Game

Oil in the Gulf. A cat thrown in a garbage bin. Chilean miners rescued. Prince William engaged. Top Gear driver unmasked. This is a very British view of the 10 biggest news stories of the year, turned into video games.


The people at NGamer made this interactive montage in Nintendo's WarioWare D.I.Y. I get most of the references. I also know that the proper reaction to a top 10 list is to grouse about what's not on it it. So...

Where's the short game about the rise of Tea Party? Where's the one about that iPhone that got lost at a bar? Good effort anyways, NGamer people.

The news was where I got a lot of my game ideas from actually. I did an oil one very similar where there were three chutes and you had to drop 3 caps on them, then Obama would start jumping across the screen. Another one was on the hadron collider where you had to align the two particles being shot in opposite directions.

I love doing them, they just take so damn long to make, excellent game mind.
