The Community Countdowns (Nov 20-26)
Welcome g1s to another edition of The Coummunity Countdowns, where I countdown my top 5 favorite g1 videos and my top 5 favorite g1 blogs from this past week.
For your viewing pleasure, SentryIII continues his Id Software retrospective with an indepth look at Doom. Sonic the Human celebrates Thanksgiving....awkwardly. Kenshiro3 offers up another one of his 8-bit remixes. Ryan Stout (a man I have been mistaken for on more than one occassion. Two) counts down his top 10 Bemani songs and Hybrid Rain gives us a glimpse at the making of The Creed (complete with a Stuttering Craig cameo and Mike "The Birdman" Dodd narration).
But first, here's a couple of Honorable Mentions:
|Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 & Battlefield 3: Dave loves his FPS games but Joe isn't quite sold on the genre yet. Will Joe find a way to wedge some retro games into this episode?|
|NGPC FOREVER!!! Metal Slug First Mission: Metal Slug goes mobile, but is going guns a blazing, or is the bang more of a whimper?|
And now, the Top 5 g1 videos of the Week!
|In-depth Review of Doom: This is no ordinary review of Doom, we talk about *everything*. Doom is arguably the most influential game in the history of video games. Forget Halo and Call of Duty for a moment, and see what...|
|A Sonic the Human Thanksgiving: Sonic the Human and his family celebrate a very heartwarming Thanksgiving!|
|Double 8bit Remix: Muse - Uprising: The worst part about censorship is [CONTENT REMOVED]|
|Happy 20, November!! The 10 BEST BEMANI SONGS!!: Happy 20, November|
|g1LunchPunch - Making of The Creed an Assassin's Creed fan series: Behind the Scenes: -The Creed- an Assassin's Creed Fan Series. Join Hybrid Rain and his crew recapping one of the most ambitious projects done in Hybrid's Career.|
And thanks to a Thanksgiving miracle (or perhaps a huge influx of quality writting) you can curl up with not five but ten pieces of g1 writing this week! Joeshadowman counts down what he feels to be the top 5 most underrated games of this console generation. KamanriderAnt reviews Monster, while Madhog thy Master reviews Azumanga Daioh. The Woodyman counts down his top 11 favorite Native American characters in gaming. Ben jamin counts down his top 10 final boss themes. Whitly reviews the incredibly girl looking anime, Princess Tutu (but perhaps appearences are decieving). The Stickman reviews Skyward Sword. Air Force One asks if old school franchises should change for modern audiences. Drake concludes his huge Top Robot Masters theme list and The Guardian gives us a very personal glimpse into his thoughts on the New ScrewAttack. While I don't agree with everything Guardian says, he does make some valid points and I definately think this is something that every one on the site should check out.
But first, here's a couple of Honorable Mentions:
|Why Black Friday Can Suck It.: I list my reasons for why Black Friday won't take an ounce of cash from me.|

Glad you liked it Ken. And thanks Ryan for the... spotlight? Countdown? Mention? Whatever it is, thanks.
awesome picks thanks for helping spotlight the community!
Great Picks this week Conway. Stickman did an AWESOME job with his Skyward Sword Review. And Sentry ALWAYS Knocks it out of the park with his video reviews, Thats why I subbed to him on youtube back when he was doing Abandonware reviews. I just wish he would reup his old Strife Review. Guardians Blog REALLY impressed me. And thanks for the feature man.
That's a bit of an overdose, if you ask me. XD
J/K You earned it dude. Good Blogs.
Wait, I didn't know you were doing these! I guess it's just another thing to keep an eye out for. Regardless, thanks for the feature. I'm not entirely pleased with the end-result, but I'm glad people are liking what I wrote...
A double dose of me? Can't argue with that.
I'm on the count down? ahh umm.... *has a major heart attack from the shock.*
I've written a new blog almost everyday in November... It's hopeless... I'm not going to win a single prize... *FAINTS*
