Kotaku's Top Five List Of Top 10 Lists

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.

The 50 Greatest Gaming World Records [Games Radar]When I was nine I decided I would set the world record on Atari 2600 Defender. (The reverse in that game was a great way to slow things down when you had too many enemies on your arse. I used it repeatedly.) I rolled the score twice and then realised the polaroids of a screen rolled twice are indistinguishable from ones rolled once. Or even three or eight times. Plus I didn't even know what the record was. So I gave up. That's the only thing keeping me off this list.

The 25 Worst Video Game Stock Photos [GameSpy]This is a common complaint, and despite that, stock photos of people playing games still suck, if not insult the intelligence. Maybe it's because actually playing a game is just not that dynamic of an activity. GameSpy has 25 of the most egregious depictions.

10 Games You'll Miss for First-Gen Xbox Live [Technologizer]Luke got this discussion started last week after Microsoft announced it was ending online support for its console. Here's another writer's list. I absolutely forgot about TimeSplitters: Future Perfect. I really did enjoy that game. Crecente sent it to me back when I was going through a rough patch in 2005. Very good memories.

"Sorry, I'm Dead": 30 Most Memorable Video Game Quotes [OC Weekly]Lots of old standbys here, from "A winner is you", to "All your base". While Duke Nukem's kick-arse/chew-bubblegum/out-of-the-latter delivery is indeed iconic, everyone knows Rowdy Roddy Piper said it first in They Live.

10 Games of the '90s That Have Aged Well [Site]The Kartel started this subject last week with seven games from the 2000s that have aged well. Now they move back a decade, to the 1990s. Counter Strike, Starcraft, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII, Street Fighter II, all very good choices.
