Top 10 Favourite BooksTOP 10 FAVOURITE BOOKS/SERIESTop 10 Favourite Books by janus-006
Hey, folks, janus-006 standing by with a new top 10 list for you all. For this one, I shall be moving away from the world of electronic entertainment, in order to focus on favourite books and series thereof - mostly series, I’ll admit. I’ve been an avid reader my whole life, and even now I like to have a good book in front of me if I’m not playing various video games. The titles I’ve picked up over the years are many and varied, to the point I couldn’t remember everything if I tried.
It’s worth noting that for this list, I have not included manga series; they’ll be grouped in with anime series for a later list, as I could easily fill this list with manga series. That said, I do have a couple of western comic series, but they are on the list because they’re actually quite important to me. Enough talk, let’s start the countdown.
#10: THE WORLD ACCORDING TO CLARKSON SERIES
One cannot deny Jeremy Clarkson i
Top 10 Favourite VillainsTOP 10 FAVOURITE VILLAINSTop 10 Favourite Villains by janus-006
Hey, folks, janus-006 standing by with a top 10 list all set to rate those who hate. Yes, this one is a celebration of my top 10 favourite villains. A solid antagonist or enemy can really make a series, giving you someone to hate, love to hate or eventually come to like in a way. Without followers of evil, heroes would be out of a job, so the various villains of fiction deserve some acknowledgement even as they stand condemned for their heinous actions. As before, I’ve tried to keep it to one per series except under certain circumstances. Anyway, now we know where this will go, let’s kick off the list!
#10: WERBELLIA, aka THE SWAMP WITCH
The central antagonist of the Queen’s Blade anime series, the Swamp Witch is a feared and powerful figure despite minimal appearances throughout the saga. The impact of her actions and orders are constantly felt, generally through the deeds of her key subordinates - the slime-based shapeshifter Melona, the fo
Top 10 Favourite Video Game Series SoundtracksTOP 10 FAVOURITE VIDEO GAME SERIES SOUNDTRACKSTop 10 Favourite Video Game Series Soundtracks by janus-006
Hey, folks, janus-006 standing by with another top 10 list. This time around, it’s a magnificent musical treat for you - a selection of my favourite game series soundtracks. I think it’s essential for a video game to have a good soundtrack; you’ll be hearing plenty of tunes frequently, so it really helps to have music which is easy on the ears. It may or may not help if the music is catchy; it’s nice to have memorable music, but some do not consider it helpful if everything gets stuck in your head., Naturally, the soundtracks from a few of my favourite games will appear, but also some which didn’t make the list. Each series will be represented by a track I particularly like and the reasons why I like it, along with some other pieces I really recommend. I hope you’ll enjoy these as much as I do.
#10: DONKEY KONG - Frantic Factory
Great music was just one of the many strings to Rare’s bow during its
Janus-006's Top 10 Favourite Video GamesTOP 10 FAVOURITE VIDEO GAMESJanus-006's Top 10 Favourite Video Games by janus-006
Hey, folks. Janus-006 standing by with the third entry in my Top 10 series. I’ve covered some key aspects of the Pokemon games, though at the moment I will change my focus from them. I’ll return to those in a future top 10, but for now I’m expanding the net to cover video games in general. From a young age, I’ve been an avid gamer. My gaming career has been entirely Nintendo-focused, though, so this list may seem a bit limited to some observers. Regardless, I really hope you enjoy this little nostalgia trip as I count down my top 10 favourite games of all time. Where I can, I’ve limited it to one game per franchise, which explains some unusual choices.
A few of these games might not be the best, but they’re all close to my heart. As always, I encourage robust but polite debate.
Before we start, here’s an honourable mention that could well have made the list.
SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE
The first game I played. Shadows of
|Well, what's there to say? I suppose I should be upfront: I'm a bit socially awkward (well, a lot) and can hit a few dark moods. Long story, bit of damage in my past. But if you persist with me, let me know if I'm doing the wrong thing and give it a bit of time, you'll get quite a lot out of it. I'm willing to share my wealth of knowledge and I'm equally willing to learn. I've always got something nice to say about people's artwork - I know how much is poured into it, from the simple line drawings to artistic masterpieces.|
