Smooth Textures

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.

Ten Games With the Best Textures This Generation [Gaming Bolt]

Top 15 Multiplayer Maps of All Time [Maximum PC]Not one map from Team Fortress 2 on here.

Fourteen Most Badass Video Game Power Suits [Maxim]Gundam? Ain’t on this list. I would have gone with the Tesla armour instead of Fallout‘s T-51. Yes, the Spartan MJOLNIR armour is on here. No, Commander Shepard’s getup is not.

Top 10 Similarities Between Max Payne 3 and Man on Fire. [CinemaBlend]Wait, so, you’re telling me that a game about a down-and-out alcoholic anti-hero with a dark past isn’t entirely original?

Seven Great Franchises That Never Got a Decent Video Game [The Smoking Jacket/Playboy (NSFW)]I’d add Tron to this list, though Discs of Tron and the original arcade game were quite good for their time. Watch out for some of the links on this page.


  • Umm… pretty sure there is a TF2 map on that Multiplayer map link. It’s only 2Fort though, so not many people would have heard of it.

  • The ‘best textures’ list is rubbish, mirrors edge, seriously? They had incredibly simple diffuse maps, which looked good because of some decent normal maps, but nothing amazing – what mirrors edge has is a great aesthetic, not great textures.

  • Whats with all of these sites that make you click to see every item? cant they just put it on one page. I stopped looking/cbf

    overgrown as a COD4 ‘greatest’ map should of been mp_strike.

    • Because they get page hits the more people click to see the next entry = more ad revenue. This is why these sites love list articles.
