Kotaku's Top 5 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.

Best Video Game Rookies [GameDaily]I'm really upset I'm not on this list in MLB 09 The Show. I mean, come on, I made the National League All-Star roster my first season.

Top Ten Professions on Mario's Resume [VGChartz]Boxing referee, race car driver, astronaut and, of course, plumber. Don't forget he's also been the No. 1 pitchman for a certain Japanese maker of games.

Top 7 Least Irritating Quick Time Events [GamesRadar]Lazy bastard that I am, I love QTEs. They allow me to grab a swig of my drink while Ezio buries an axe in a guy twice his size. Games Radar has a list of seven that are more appealing for different reasons.

Top 10 DLC Characters We'd Like to See in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing [The Kartel]Centurion from Altered Beast would be fantastic. Likewise Joe Musashi from Shinobi. Really can't complain with or top these suggestions.

Top Five Black Video Game Characters Who Deserve Their Own Game [Bitmob]Today is Feb. 28, the last day of Black History Month, and Bitmob looks at characters whose supporting roles in other games rate a spinoff of their own. Cole Train from Gears of War and Staff Sgt. Johnson from the Halo series headline the list.


    How is Alyx Vance a "black" video game character?

    That's as far a stretch as to say that Gordon Freeman has a cockney English accent. We just don't know... Alyx is mixed race if I ever saw one... I do like the idea of an Alyx Vance video game however, maybe even separate from the Half Life series.

      I think it's in Episode 2, you can see a picture of Eli, Alyx, and her mum. Pretty sure she's Asian. From what I've seen, black/asian kids look more black, but I try not to make a habit of staring at random half-half children when I'm out and about.
      s'like calling Obama black, even though his mum was white, I suppose.

      Are you serious? We MEET HER BLACK FATHER in-game!
      (We find out her Asian mother died.)

        Yeah its true! on the other-hand shes about as black as Tom Cruise is good at acting

      They also called portal Episode 1.5... and they imply Alyx is Chell. >:(
