Top 5 Of 10: High Achievers

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.

Shovelware for Achievement Whores [UGO]Well researched list that reads like a boosting guide for ultra-score seekers. Many of the titles are from the early days of Gamerscore, when no one really knew what to do with it or how to award it. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, a favourite of our friend Kristen, is No. 1.

Five Games Canceled Due to Disasters [The Kartel]Not sure if what canceled "Six Days in Fallujah" is actually classifiable as a disaster, though the project certainly is. The others were caught in the wake of 9/11 and the recent Japan quake and tsunami.

The 50 Greatest Gaming Gopher Memes [Ranker]Had no idea Gaming Gopher was a meme. Had no idea Gaming Gopher existed.

E3 2011: 10 Games That Will Drop Your Jaws [Gaming Bolt]Jaw-dropping would imply that one's mouth is hanging open in surprise. The only thing that could possibly be surprising be surprising about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is news that Activision is not making it. This unannounced yet inevitable game is this list's No. 1.

The 25 Best Stories in Video Games [Complex]Combing through this list for weak entries was a futile search; I have to say they got everything right. Might disagree about the ordering, but these are 25 games that belong in this discussion. No. 1 is Ocarina of Time.

    The gaming gopher memes were incredible...

    This one blew my mind "Elevator has door on both sides. FUCK FUCK FUCK!"

    I thought I was the only one.

      I was visiting someone in the hospital the other day and I said exactly that in the elevator.

      Damn elevators.

    I read through those 25 best stories list. That was an utter fail list. Not including some of the greatest story's spanning several games like Halo, Starcraft and Warcraft (Probably one of the most in-depth stories in a video game world), but including Portal which barely had what constituted a story as it was a freaking puzzle game, is a waste of time.

    Also, I hate sites that use a seperate page for each item on their list. I want to load 1 or 2 pages, not 25!

    Oh man, I'd kill for a HD collection of Soul Reaver now...
