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.
•10 Musician Video Game Vanity Projects [Joystick Division]Neither Green Day, the Beatles, Aerosmith nor Metallica show up here, mostly because those games weren't ridiculous. 50 Cent, REO Speedwagon and the Spice Girls do, because they are.
•Top 10 Most Offensive Xbox Live Indie Games [1Up]With that headline, I was hoping to see something like Gilbert Gottfried's Friar's Club Roast 2010 on here, but I suppose indie studios can't cough up for that kind of licensing. Get Your Girlfriend Into Games is a worthy pick but it doesn't get top honors. Who Did I Date Last Night? is.
•Top 10 Ways to Stay Green While Gaming [Planet Xbox 360]Good suggestions throughout, but I'd think No. 1 is "don't buy or play crappy games." The collective power load committed to achievement-mining a crap game, even a rental, could probably power a city the size of Winnipeg. I have no proof of that, it just sounds smart.
•The 13 Greatest Cats In Video Game History [Ranker]Granted, the purpose of this list is mostly to get a picture of Darkstalkers' Felicia [portrayed by Hezachan, left]into the post. But there still are 12 slots left, and not one goddamn Kilrathi makes it?
•Ten Things That Work In Video Games And Not In Real Life [Joystick Division]Eating an entire ham or a Thanksgiving turkey found in a barrel on the street, and seeing improved health should be one.
