The List: Top 50 Franchises in Video Gaming

A few months ago Ben found this list and sent it to me, saying we should do it for The List. Then about a month or so later Missingno sent us the same damn list. Obviously the universe wants us to do this stupid, terrible terrible list. It’s complex.com’s “Top 50 Franchises in Video Gaming” and ugh. UGH. UUUGH.

The List In Question

Have a suggestion for a future list? Let us know in the comments!

Read the Manual & the SMYN Network: The Year in Review

OOPS there’s no full RTM this week. Doba was painfully busy editing Red Carpet, helping with GOTY, and hosting the 24 Hour Cast. So that happened. That all happened. That all happened and it all happened at once.

Instead, take this bit that ended up being WAY too long for the GOTY. It’s RTM and the hosts of the other Network shows talking about their years in music, movies, and games. Think of it as a mini RTM and we’ll see you next cycle with RTM 55.

Episode 1: Ben Told Me To Call This Buttsecks

Welcome to the first episode of Read The Manual, hosted by thedobaga (Doba for short) and GymLeaderBen (um… Ben for short). On this podcast the two of them talk about the music they’ve been listening to, the movies or shows they’ve watched, and the games they’ve played since the last episode. It’s a little rough to start out but I hope you all stick with us through this journey!

… And when you’re done with that you may wanna get yourself checked out.

This week’s big topics include the beginning of Read the Manual, Doba and Ben’s self abusive intros, what is RTM, chip tunes, Obligatory Ice Level Day, Princess & The Frog, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 1, Quip Trax and Riff Trax, Poker Night at the Inventory, Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, Sonic Colors, Left 4 Dead and Team Deathstrike, PETA’s Super Tofu Boy, Pac Man’s ghost behavior algorithms, a man with a camera surgically attached to his head, law in the multiverse, and analyzing game journalism.
