Top 10 Things You Should Know About Video Games If You are a True Fan of Them and Not a Poser

The Top Ten
1 IGN stands for IGN-orant
2 Nintendo still makes a lot of really excellent games, just not nearly as frequently as before
3 The only real things that the Xbox 360 had over the Wii and PS3 were its controller, its graphical/online framerate, Xbox Live and the fact that Fallout 3 and Oblivion were actually playable on it
4 Sonic, as big of a franchise as it may be, still has considerably more value as Rule 34 material than it does as an actual series of games
5 Call Of Duty, Destiny and modern-day Halo are all about as dull and boring as first-person shooters get
6 Most indie games inspired by popular big-name titles are NOT ripoffs; they're tributes (case in point: Undertale to Earthbound, Cave Story to Metroid, Shovel Knight to Mega Man and Duck Tales)
7 Um Jammer Lammy and Gitaroo Man are what the Parappa The Rapper games WISH that they could be even half as good (not to mention weird/crazy) as
8 Conker's Bad Fur Day really wasn't that funny even for its time
9 If you strip away the incredibly flashy visuals and time-traveling gimmickry, Chrono Trigger really is basically just baby's first Final Fantasy VI but without the mandatory grinding and random battles
10 Rayman Origins and Donkey Kong Country Returns both individually made New Super Mario Bros look like an absolute joke by comparison, let alone when combined together
The Contenders
11 Super Mario Bros was far from being the first Mario game

This is one of the few options on this list that isn't an opinion.

That title goes to Donkey Kong. In all fairness, though, he was "Jumpman" back then. - Cyri

12 The ONLY non-kart-racing portions of the Crash Bandicoot series worth playing are the original trilogy and Twinsanity

And maybe The Big Adventure - xandermartin98

13 Fanbases do NOT determine the quality of the actual things that they belong to
14 Starcraft Wipes Its Rear End with Warcraft
15 Super Smash Bros Brawl and 4 are Easily Just as Good as Melee
16 Metroid Prime 2 and Bioshock 2 are both easily just as good as their predecessors
17 The original Half-Life was actually a considerably more unique and innovative game than its sequel
18 Guitar Hero and Rock Band did NOT invent the guitar-playing genre of music games
19 Final Fantasy VII and X are both easily among the weakest overall entries of the main series
20 Kefka from Final Fantasy VI is just a garish, tasteless ripoff of the Joker from Batman
21 Pikachu is FAR from being the cutest animal in Pokemon's repertoire
22 Super Metroid pales as a standalone game when compared to the Prime trioogy
23 Wind Waker, Twilight Princess and even Majora's Mask all made vast improvements over Ocarina Of Time
24 The original Parappa The Rapper is actually by far the worst installment of its series
25 Ubisoft sucks now
