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.
•Top 10 Video Game Easter Eggs You Wish Existed [Planet Xbox 360]That I wish existed? Me?. No, the ones I wish existed were, in order: Unlockable Asshole Dog skin for Dogmeat in Fallout 3; Nude Bayonetta in one-button mode; Crimson Lance turn into Van Halen on the Old Haven level of Borderlands; and Bryant Gumbel mangles the commentary if you play the Colts at the Falcons on Thanksgiving in Madden NFL 11. Those are some fuckin' Easter Eggs.
•The 13 Greatest Pets In Video Game History [Ranker]Yoshi's the No. 1, by acclamation. But speaking of Dogmeat and Asshole Dog, they aren't on this list.
•Ten of the Most Widely Believed Video Game Urban Legends [Unreality Magazine]A pretty strong list that captures all of the in-game bullshit people have wanted to believe over the years, from Leatherface in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, to playing Lara Croft in the nude. Oh, and Aeris is still dead, dammit.
•The 50 Worst Ways to Die in a Video Game [UGO]This list covers just about every painful, humiliating and aggravating way to kick the bucket in video games, with some witty takes on unconventional deaths, such as: "Having a Ghost Possess You and Forcing You to Eat Yourself: At least I think this is what happens when you die in Pac-Man."
•The Top 7 Best Launch Games Of All Time [GamesRadar]Can't argue with any of these, really. Wii Sports at No. 7, maybe it should be higher. But Super Mario Bros. (NES) at No. 2 and Tetris (GameBoy) at No. 1 are spot on.
