Everyone does those end-of-year lists. They’re derided quite a bit, but I tend to like them.

    I would like to second fried potatoes for number one.

  2. mixmastermind says:

    “The award for 6th place will be shared by Resident Evil 5, Left 4 Dead 2, Plants vs. Zombies, and Zombie Driver.”

    I believe that should be “8th”. Not to nitpick.

    Bah, #2 beat me to it!

  4. Lord of Rapture says:

    No, I think it’s deliberate.

  5. ccesarano says:

    Not to mention that this year sees the requisite “top 10 games of the decade”, where the only titles worth playing seem to be Half-Life 2, Halo, Resident Evil 4, Grand Theft Auto 3 (or some iteration thereof) and additional option varying from publication to publication.

    I’m instead trying to do a retrospective through each individual year, but man is that tough. Especially since Wikipedia’s list of games from 2000-2006 or 2007 is missing a lot of games.

    Your title is misspelled, and you are the top Google result for “requsite.”

    Your title is misspelled, and you are the top Google result for “requsite.”

    Maybe that was the idea? ;)

    If it wasn’t before, it is now ^_^

    And for some reason now my brain has free-associated its way to Shamus’s article on behind-the-curtain retcons while DMing. I…don’t know.

    I dunno about a top ten, but a short list of some of the cool things about this year…
    –Dickens Christmas Fair.
    –I *can* make tasty lasagna.
    –Got my violet protodrake in WoW (and thanks to Shamus for giving me the kick I needed to actually sign up for the game last year)
    –Brand new computer to replace my ~7 1/2 year old clunker.
    –I look great in a bowler hat

    Thanks for another year of blogging, Shamus! I look forward to the next!
