The Best Top Ten List in the World EVER

Gamers with jobs is a site that I wish I could appreciate more. I know the stuff that bubbles up to their front page is a head and shoulders above most of the game writing you find on the web but even though I check the site every day I must hang my head and admit that most of the articles are just too literate and too verbose for me. GWJ is the Times Literary Supplement of games writing and I, to my shame am just a humble tabloid reader.

Nevertheless every so often I manage to focus my attention long enough to discover some absolute gem of an article on GWJ and today's piece by Sean Sands is a cracker. It is nothing less that the top ten list to end all top ten lists: A top ten of the numbers between 1 and 10 complete with annotated explations. Enjoy: Simply the Best

While I am on the subject of guilty confessions I must admit to having a few other "must read" websites on my daily review list that I never quite manage to actually read, Terra Nova for example and also the Escapist.

Nice hat-tip, mbp - I hadn't read that site before. Added to trial feeds...

I would have to say that the no.1 number would be a tie between 4 & 2 as together they make the best union - 42.

If you follow that logic DM you are going to have to promote 6 and 9 as well :)

Ah the 6 of 9 - ST:NG or something else...

Well actually I was thinking of HHGTG http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Answer_to_Life,_the_Universe,_and_Everything#42_Puzzle but I'd go for 6 of 9.
