  • Top Ten Cannon Fodder Enemies

    9
    Top Ten Cannon Fodder Enemies One of the best things about video games, in my opinion, is the thrill of taking down a particularly tough enemy. As satisfying as that is, it can be equally as fun committing genocide on a particular type of foe. We present... More
