Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Greatest List is...Underwhelming
Have you seen the latest issue of EW? It talks about the 100 greatest movies, TV shows, albums, and novels, and the 50 greatest stage plays. But it doesn't feature the 100 or even the 50 greatest video games of all time, basically saying that video games are not a form of entertainment.
Oh, well. Video games don't feature prominently in their regular issues, either, so what did I expect?
But that's not what even upsets me about the issue. What upsets me is the choices! I'm not going to spoil any of them for you, but let's just say that a majority of the "100 greatest movies of all time" are American films, and the 100 greatest albums feature a Kanye West album over the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds. Seriously. This is almost as bad as a Rolling Stone Magazine top 100 list. Almost, I said. Pick the latest issue up if you want to get angry.
