Out of the Blue

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the observation of the birthday and celebration of the accomplishments of the civil rights leader. I was thinking of this as one of those holidays that's not so widely observed, but the parking lot was half-full at most when I dropped MrsBlue at the train station this morning (as hers is one of those companies that's open today).

thanks Sepharo!

Great link, going through briefly on the list.....some anomolies in there, like Mafia 2 being so low....I see some newer games that are better that are pretty far down the list, probably just because people haven't played them yet....

Top 10 is pretty well done. Things get kind of weird after 20 or so....

I thought the Penny-Arcade forums 2010 games of the year list was pretty interesting.

Other than a strong disagreement with ME2 being the winner the rest of the votes I can agree with. They even have Alpha Protocol just beating out BlackOps. You could say they're all hardcore gamers too, maybe not PC gamers but the way the votes go there's quite a few still in there.

Voting analysis and methods follow the list.

I still can't believe they beat the Patriots. I don't think the Patriots can believe it either. Being a Steelers fan, I was rooting for the Jets, as I think the Patriots are a better team overall (no offense Jets fans!).

Dr King day already? ... man that year has gone by fast.

Somebody forward that Smosh huge gun video to Jack Thompson.

Fun fact for the day, "Fascinating" is said as a Vulcan apology for farting, or breaking of the wind.
