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.
•Nine Horribly Embarrassing Ways to Die in a Video Game [Games Radar]These are all highly specific circumstances, such as "Death by Faggio" in Grand Theft Auto. But I'd add any drowning death in a non-swimming game (especially Assassin's Creed), plus any instance when you're playing a new game and you spam the jump button instead of shoot/attack/kill it/whatever.
•Top 10 Movies That Would Make Horrible Games [Planet Xbox 360]Just because they said "Road House" and they are obviously wrong, I am going to come up with, off the top of my head, a new Top 10 Movies That Would Be Awful Video Games. Here you go, they are: On Golden Pond, Hudson Hawk,The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, The Cider House Rules, My Dinner With Andre, Footloose, Listen to Me, Bang the Drum Slowly, Brewster's Millions and Mask. Shit, I could do a hundred of these. Mac and Me. Sophie's Choice. Say Anything.
•Top 5 Console Breaking Videos [The Kartel]Four of these five look either deliberate (the blender) or staged. Only the last one looks moderately convincing.
•Top Ten Sexually Awkward Video Game Moments [VGChartz]This is the fourth installment of this series, so at some point, we're just going to have to give up and say "all of them are sexually awkward." The GTA lap dance moments are at least realistically awkward, capturing that "Alright, so what the hell am I supposed to do here" feeling while you wait for the song to end.
•Top Eight Mustaches in Video Games [Crispy Gamer]Wait a minute, Crispy Gamer's still publishing? OK. Well, here are the eight best mustaches in video game history, with Mario clocking in at just No. 4. My No. 1 is Billy Mitchell.
