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.

•Six Video Game Cocktails [The Guardian] Now here’s some news you can use. The Guardian’s Keith Stuart concocts six cocktails based on 2011′s best video games, with photographs. By far my favourite is “The Portal Two.” Dig that fluorescent rim frosting! “Batman: Arkham Party” wins best name.

•Ten New Year’s Resolutions All Gamers Should Have [OC Weekly] No. 1: Finish your pile of shame. Scoop of chocolate, scoop of vanilla, don’t waste my time.
•11 Evil Choices in Video Games [UGO] Nuking Megaton. There is no redemption after you do that. You killed poor Moira! How will you ever complete the Wasteland survival guide? Plus, you’re a dickbag.
