Hamsterfist.com Top Ten list of why gaming top ten lists are stupid

Hamsterfist.com explores why gaming top ten lists are over used and over rated. Ironically in a top ten format.

exert:

"I have found gaming top ten lists to be highly suspicious and kind of a cheap way to do journalism. Am I am above being cheap? Well of course not. So here is my top ten list of reasons why top ten lists are pathetic.

10. They are just someone's opinion.

I realize that gaming journalism is mostly based off of opinions. Especially game reviews and previews. However how can you say that your list of the most ultimate badasses is the correct list? Shouldn't there be some sort of scientific study of badasses done? Where are the polls and University lab tests on badassery?" (Culture)

Some people don't use the internet as a battleground of debate, some people use it as entertainment. Top 10 lists are interesting to read, so people write them.

And I've never seen a writer write in his top ten list that his work is the ultimate final say-so regarding the topic. The author in this article just assumed that writers make these lists because they think their opinion is better then everyone elses, which is BS. They do it because people generally find it interesting to read an opinion. Ya maybe their are some elitist a-holes who think that way, but don't stereotype every game journalist out because of one or two arrogant pricks.

You didn't read the list. It is mostly tongue in cheek, and I do understand that top ten lists are entertainment. But to pretend that so and so's list of top ten games is the ultimate list is funny to me. Instead of saying "The Top Ten Games of All Time" shouldn't most lists say "My Top Ten Games of All Time"

Now come up with the top ten reasons my top ten list sucks. Then I can think of the top ten reasons your top ten reasons suck.
