"There are two co-stars without which video games would not be what they are today. They've appeared in countless titles on just about every platform you can imagine. They are, dare I say it, more important than Mario and Street Fighter combined. Actually, I won't say that. But that doesn't mean barrels and crates don't deserve our respect. So here they are, our very favorite barrels and crates throughout the ages. Special thanks to some person named Armin B. Wagner, who decided to create a user-submitted database of barrels and crates throughout the ages for some reason, as it made writing this feature a heck of a lot easier."
