I suppose there are two ways you can view this blog. You can
look at it like it's a cheap blog whereby I capitalize off of a fellow bloggers'
hard work...which I really hope you don't. Or you can look at it like a tribute
to one of our most active and unique bloggers and arguably the only one
qualified to be featured in such a blog...which I really hope you do. I don't
know any other blogger that could be considered and recognized for their top
ten lists; and I know a lot of bloggers. With just a few blogs short of 50 (yes
fifty) top ten list type blogs, thegodofwine7 is one of the most prominent and
influential bloggers in the community. He has been featured in Blog Herding as
much as anybody (actually I think the most) and here lately has been turning
out some exceptional non-top ten blogs, demonstrating his remarkable diversity.
Now I'm not one to post top ten blogs. I can. I have. But I
don't like it. I even posted a blog about not liking it. But just because I don't
like posting them doesn't mean I don't enjoy reading them. And I (and many
others) enjoy reading thegodofwine7's blogs.
So as part of the tribute, I thought I would post a blog listing
my top ten favorite (see I can do it) top ten blogs posted by thegodofwine7
(these are in no certain order).
10 Video Game Commandments
A humorous blog full or truth and wisdom, this blog is
one of my favorites because it provides gamers with some guidelines, but does
so subtlety with an almost Monty Python tone.
10 Game Endings
This year will be remembered for many things, and for gamers, the
controversial ending to Mass Effect 3 is sure to be remembered for years to
come. Well, this blog captures a few other games with noteworthy endings.
10 Game Over Screens
Have any of you beaten a game without ever seeing a "game over"
screen? Doubt it. Some games handle it better than others, and this particular
blog shows off some of those games.
10 Iconic First Levels
A common expression is you only get one chance to make a first
impression, and in video game terms, the first level is often influential in shaping
your opinion of the entire game. This blog explores ten games with those kinds
of first levels.
10 Most Improved Sequels
It's rare these days for a game not to get a sequel, but it is
rare for the sequel to actually be better than the original. I haven't played
all of these sequels, but the ones I have, I do agree are better. Mostly.
I'm somewhat of a lone wolf, but every now and then I like a game
that features a loyal sidekick to make the experience more enjoyable. Out of
hundreds of sidekicks to choose from, here are a few great ones.
Ten Cannon Fodder Enemies
I did a blog similar to this, but I don't think I came anywhere
close to examining ten different types of bad guys. Sure, zombies and aliens
make the list, but there are some other rather original baddies making the cut
Ten Industry Changing Games
With so many games contributing to the current state of the video
game industry - the ones listed in this blog certainly helped shaped where we
are today and will go down in the history books as classics.
Ten Video Game Currencies
I remember when I first read this blog how clever I thought it
was. Certainly one of the more original top ten blogs from thegodofwine7
and still one of my favorites.
10 Video Game Ninjas
With the exception of pirates, there aren't a lot of character
types cooler than ninjas, and there are certainly a handful of games that feature ninjas, and I like them all.

Standing ovation, loud obnoxious applause (he likes that).
