ZODIAC MOTHERFUCKER'S TOP 10 GAMES OF 2012

ZMF PULLS NO PUNCHES AND NEVER TURNS OFF CAPSLOCK FOR HIS TOP 10 GAMES OF 2012.

ZODIAC MOTHERFUCKER DRINKS KESSLER AND IS BANNED FOR LIFE FROM THE GIANT BOMB COMMUNITY FOR NINE HUNDRED COUNTS OF AGGRAVATED OWNAGE. HE LEAVES BITCHES MEWLING IN HIS WAKE AND IF YOU DONT BELIEVE THAT SHIT THEN CHECK THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW

ZODIAC IS A FORMER RESIDENT OF DETROIT BUT THESE DAYS HE ROLLS DOLO FROM CITY TO CITY LIKE A FUCKING DERELICT IN HIS LINCOLN. SO WHEN YOU SEE THAT BLACK BATTLESHIP ROAMING THE STREETS WITH AXEL F BLASTING OUT THE FUCKING WINDOWS YOULL KNOW THAT THE ZODIAC HAS COME TO YOUR TOWN. KNEEL

IN THE MEANTIME PAY HOMAGE AT TWITTER.COM/ZODIAC_MF

10. MIDWAY ARCADE ORIGINS

THIS COMPILATION IS NINETY-FIVE PERCENT BULLSHIT AND IT ACTS LIKE THE HD VERSIONS THAT WERE ON XBOX LIVE LIKE SEVEN FUCKING YEARS AGO NEVER EXISTED BUT IT FEATURES THE GAME OF KINGS JOUST AND IT IS NOW THE ONLY WAY TO ACQUIRE THAT ALLTIME CLASSIC ON XBOX 360. CAN YOU DROP THY OSTRICHS BALLS IN THY OPPONENTS FACE BEFORE HE DOES THE SAME TO THEE? NOPE. YOU PROBABLY CANT

9. SLEEPING DOGS

TAKE GRAND THEFT AUTO ADD SOME AWESOME CHINESE DUDES AND REPLACE THE WACK GUNPLAY WITH TOTAL FUCKING HAND-TO-HAND BRUTALITY AND OWNAGE AND YOU GOT SLEEPING DOGS. I MEAN YEAH IT AINT REVOLUTIONARY OR ANYTHING BUT ITS STILL A BLAST AND I CAN NOT STRESS IT ENOUGH: IT IS IMMENSELY SATISFYING TO BEAT THE HOLY GODDAMN FUCKING SHIT OUT OF PEOPLE IN THIS GAME. ITS LIKE BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM IF BATMAN BEAT FUCKERS TO DEATH WITH WHATEVERS HANDY LIKE HE SHOULD. ATTENTION VOLITION: STEAL THIS SHIT

8. DEFCON: EVERYBODY DIES

YEAH THIS GAME CAME OUT IN 2006 SO ITS KINDA FUCKED UP IM LISTING IT AS ONE OF MY FAVORITE GAMES OF 2012 BUT THERES A COUPLE OF POINTS TO CONSIDER HERE: NUMBER ONE I DO WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT AND NUMBER TWO IF YOU HAVENT PLAYED IT ITS NEW TO YOU MOTHERFUCKER. BESIDES GIANT BOMB WAS STILL SWIMMING AROUND IN JEFF GERSTMANNS BALLSACK WHEN DEFCON CAME OUT SO IT AINT LIKE I COULDVE NAMED IT BACK THEN EVEN IF I HAD PLAYED IT. POINT IS THIS GAME IS SHEER FUCKING APOCALYPTIC OWNAGE NOT TO MENTION A MASTERPIECE IN MOOD AND HORROR AND WORLDWIDE DESTRUCTION AND IT CAN BE HAD FOR A PITTANCE IN 2012. AND THAT SHITS BETTER THAN NEW. SO FOR ANYBODY LIKE ME WHO FOUND THE COLD WAR TO BE A HUGETIME DISAPPOINTMENT WITH A LOT OF BUILDUP AND NO PAYOFF THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO SEE THE NUCLEAR ARMAGEDDON WE WERE PROMISED INSTEAD OF A LOT OF ANTICLIMACTIC PERESTROIKA HORSESHIT

7. THE WITCHER 2: ASSASSINS OF KINGS

WELL GODDAMN THIS SHIT WOULD BE BEST IN SHOW AT THE FLAGRANT BUSH AWARDS BUT I NEVER GOT AROUND TO FINISHING IT SO ITS ONLY NUMBER SEVEN HERE. BUT MAN I GOTTA SAY WHEN THIS GAME CAME OUT FLASHING MORE BEAVER THAN A 1982 HUSTLER I FIGURED THOSE FUCKING MUMMIES AT THE NEWS NETWORKS WOULD BE FANNING THEMSELVES FOR WEEKS AND WHIPPING ALL THE OLD FUCKS UP INTO A FUCKING RAGE. BUT NOBODY REALLY CARED AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF DAMN BETWEEN THAT AND THE SUPREME COURT RULING AGAINST ASSHOLE IN ASSHOLE V. ENTERTAINMENT MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION MAYBE WEVE FINALLY TURNED A FUCKING CORNER AS A CULTURE HERE. THEN SOME MODCUT DIPSHIT SHOT UP A GRADE SCHOOL AND NEXT THING YOU KNOW CNN IS REPORTING THAT STARCRAFT TOLD HIM TO DO IT AND CONGRESSBITCHES ARE TALKING ABOUT VIDEOGAME HEARINGS AGAIN. ONE STEP FORWARD TWO STEPS THE FUCK BACK

6. HITMAN: ABSOLUTION

IM SURE THE HITMAN STORYLINE IS FASCINATING AND ALL BUT ILL BE HONEST WITH YOU NO MATTER HOW FAR I GET INTO THE GAME I KEEP GOING BACK TO THAT SECOND LEVEL WHERE OUR MAN 47 WHACKS SOME JUMPED UP PUNK WHO CALLS HIMSELF THE KING OF CHINATOWN DESPITE THE FACT THAT HES JUST A LOWRENT MOTHERFUCKER IN A NINETY DOLLAR SUIT WHO DOESNT EVEN FIGURE INTO THE PLOT IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER. AND LET ME TELL YOU THIS PIECE OF SHIT HAS DIED A THOUSAND DEATHS AT MY HANDS: IVE SHOT HIM IVE BLOWN HIM UP IVE POISONED HIM IVE DUMPED HIS STUPID ASS DOWN A MANHOLE IVE CRUSHED HIM WITH SOME LIKE PALLETS OR SOME FUCKING SHIT HELL I EVEN BLUDGEONED HIM TO DEATH WITH A FUCKING BOTTLE IN FRONT OF AN ARMY OF COPS LIKE DO SOMETHING. BUT MY PERSONAL FAVORITE WAS FOLLOWING HIM INTO AN ALLEY AND FILLETING HIS FUCKING ASS WITH A SUSHI KNIFE BEFORE TOSSING HIM IN A FUCKING DUMPSTER AND SAUNTERING AWAY LIKE I JUST WON SIX BUCKS AT KENO. AND I DID IT ALL DRESSED LIKE A COMPLETE FUCKING ASSHOLE

5. FAR CRY 3

I FUCKED UP A SHARK

AS ANY DUMBASS CAN PLAINLY SEE I FIND THAT GAMES WHERE YOU STALK MOTHERFUCKERS AND MURDER THEM ALL UNAWARES ARE ALWAYS ACES. THIS ONES NO EXCEPTION BUT THERES EVEN MORE SHIT TO RECOMMEND IT INCLUDING AN AWESOME MAGIC SYSTEM AND A FRESH SETTING AND HITGIRL AND CERSEI LANNISTER. AND THAT MASK FUCKING OWNS. BUT WHILE THERES A LOT OF WAYS TO APPROACH THIS GAME AND THE DESIGNERS TRIED TO INCORPORATE A COST TO OWNAGE LETS FACE FUCKING THE FACTS HERE THERES ONLY ONE WAY TO PLAY: HIGH CHAOS LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER. I FIGURE FUCK IT THEY STARTED IT

3. XCOM: ENEMY UNKNOWN

THIS IS BASICALLY LIEUTENANT GORMAN THE VIDEOGAME BECAUSE IT WILL LEAVE YOU SHIVERING LIKE A SHELLSHOCKED BITCH WATCHING HALF YOUR FUCKING SQUAD DIE MISERABLE FUCKED UP DEATHS BECAUSE YOU SUCK AT PLANNING SHIT. I NEVER WOULDVE GUESSED THAT TURNBASED GAMEPLAY COULD BE SO INTENSE BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT: IRONMAN MODE IS NO FUCKING JOKE. FOR REAL YOU GOTTA HAVE BALLS LIKE BILLY SQUIER TO PLAY THAT SHIT FOR ANY EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. BUT NO MATTER HOW YOU PLAY MAKE SURE YOU NAME YOUR SOLDIERS BEFORE MARCHING THEM INTO BULLSHIT ALIEN HELL. LET THEM GET THEIR COCKS KNOCKED IN THE DIRT WITH SOME FUCKING DIGNITY

2. THE WALKING DEAD

EVERYBODYS ALREADY TORQUING THE SNORKEL OVER THIS ONE SO ILL KEEP IT SHORT: TEAM KENNY. CHARACTER OF THE FUCKING YEAR

1. BORDERLANDS 2

GAME OF THE FUCKING YEAR WITHOUT QUESTION. NONSTOP ENTERTAINMENT AND OWNAGE BY THE POUND WITH HUGELY MEMORABLE CHARACTERS BRINGING LAUGHS TO SPARE. I MEAN HOLY SHIT IMAGINE THAT: A VIDEOGAME THATS FUNNIER THAN YOUR AVERAGE FUCKING SALLY FORTH STRIP. AND THATS JUST ICING ON THE CAKE BECAUSE THIS IS A TOTAL FUCKING MASTERPIECE IN ALMOST EVERY REGARD. MORE THAN THAT CHECK OUT CLASS ACT GEARBOX SUPPORTING THIS SHIT WITH THE KILLER DLC AND THE REGULAR FREE BONUS ITEMS AND EVEN THROWING IN A MOVING TRIBUTE TO A FAN. THAT MY MOTHERFUCKERS IS HOW YOU TREAT YOUR CUSTOMERS. BUT ALL THAT RESPECTABLE SHIT ASIDE THE RAW FUCKING FUN FACTOR ON THIS THING IS THROUGH THE ROOF. HELL THERES AN ENTIRE QUEST DEVOTED SOME FUCKING IMBECILE ASKING YOU TO SHOOT HIM IN THE FACE. I WAS LIKE HEY HAVE IT YOUR WAY MOTHERFUCKER. AND THE MULTIPLAYER HERE IS THE BEST COOP YOURE GONNA FIND. FOUR PLAYERS AGAINST THE BNK3R ON WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD IS PRACTICALLY A RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE. I SAY WITH EVERY FUCKING CONFIDENCE THAT ONLY BEATOFFS DONT LIKE THIS GAME. AND WHILE IM ANOINTING THIS SHIT IT ID LIKE TO MAKE SPECIAL NOTE TO TINY TINA: AWESOME CHARACTER BENT ON TORTURE AND REVENGE AND BLOWING FUCKERS UP BUT THE REAL STORY THERE IS ASHLY BURCH WHO DOES HER VOICE.

I am good at writing in broken English but I don't get any special privileges? Why does someone who is good at sounding angry get special privileges?

Because Ryan has a boner for him, that's why.

because hes entertaining and interesting thats why.

He is neither.

Second time today you hit the nail on the head, Hailinel!

But some people seem to enjoy this, so we should just let them have their moment!

seriously, if you don't like him, say so; but don't deride others for their enjoyment of him, because humor is subjective

So that's what qualified him to be featured on the site? Some people find him funny. What about users who have made actual contributions to Giant Bomb? Regularly post blogs, do awesome art work for the staff, make videos for all to enjoy. And amazingly, don't get banned.

Or the mods who have had to devote who knows how much of their time simply deleting spam so that users can have a decent experience with the site.

Oh sorry, I'm being too serious aren't I? What a humorless jerk I must be.

I'm not really sure where you get off thinking that just because you waste a ton of time on this website doing nothing that it somehow entitles you to a soapbox like the one provided to the top 10 lists. Not only that, but your butthurt pretension that it somehow validates the opinions of anyone who has one is frankly fucked up and lacking perspective.

The top 10 lists have and always will come from the people the Giant Bomb staff likes or finds funny. Their friends in the industry as well as personalities like Zodiac Motherfucker. In his case, the crew likes Zodiac Motherfucker. Therefore, he gets a list.

You can whine that you don't get one despite the fact that you feel entitled to it for... what? Editing a wiki? Doing blog posts? Writing user reviews?

Come on, son.

I'm fine with people saying he's not funny. I get it. He's not for everyone. But saying that for whatever reason he doesn't deserve a top 10 list is just ridiculous. Also saying the community members are more deserving is equally ridiculous. The only community member who deserves a featured top 10 list is BiffMcBlumpkin. If HitmanAgent47 were still here, I'd say here deserves one too. But just because you have a big post number doesn't mean you have anything interesting to say.

Sorry, I missed this one. No, I don't think any user is entitled to a list. I also haven't used the wiki since the site began. Never made a blog post, or wrote a user review. I'm not your son either, so keep the snark to yourself.

@MattSchwabby said:

Just because you are an active contributor to anything doesn't mean your opinion is any good, or that anyone cares about it, and in what reality does being the biggest fan of something entitle you to be a feature of it? That's like saying someone who gets Packers season tickets should be able to fill in for Aaron Rodgers.

Just to be clear, I think no user should have a featured top 10. Let alone one that can't even post on the site. Again, it's just an opinion. Some people clearly like this guy, so for those people this is GREAT!

@CaLe: By your logic there should be no guest list.

Nah, I don't think that is in line with my logic at all.

what did E contribute? what did cowboy contribute? what did paul barnett contribute?

Because I mentioned those others who did contribute, I was saying that only those who contribute to the site should be given the privilege to be featured in a top 10? No. I'm trying to find a legitimate reason other than Ryan's bias towards this guy. I also think that those who have contributed something, anything at all, should come before this banned user. That's just me though. Feel free to disagree.

Don't you get it? He's banned, so fucking what? Why are you so mad about this? Why do you keep fighting people over this insignificant little thing? Chill the fuck down, please. It's Giantbomb staff's site and it was their decision to put his list here, not your's. You can't change it and never will so please just fucking stop doing whatever the fuck you're doing and chill, please. Forget this shit, go out, have a beer, maybe even some sex and have a happy!!! new year.;)

Where does this guy come from? not questioning why he has a list, i know Ryan loves the guy but where does that love come from?

Posted by GalacticGravy

ZMF gets my respect. He's a rare breed of actual men on the internet. Testicles, testosterone, and all.

Posted by Hailinel

@Animasta: Yeah, no. No one here is trembling. If anything, we're puzzled by why some people find this guy so appealing when he goes out of his way to craft this idiotic, repulsive online persona. The last time I brought up this question, someone linked me to a pair of ZMF-produced Youtube videos that were little more than short clips with someone getting murdered completely at random and expecting me to "get it".

There was nothing for me to get, aside from the notion that ZMF is either so steeped in his online persona that it's become his lifestyle, or he is legitimately sociopathic and people find this entertaining for some reason.

No one has really answered that question of what they find appealing about him satisfactorily yet. More to the point, I'm not going to argue against the staff on this, but it does seem weird that he keeps getting invited back for this when even the staff agrees that he should be banned from the site's community features.

I'm pretty chilled. People keep replying to me and misconstruing what I said, flipping it around and attacking me on it, so yeah, I'm just responding. I know it's their site and I know the reason Ryan made this (in my opinion, bad) decision. Doesn't mean I can't question it.

@leinad44: I agree, though us having this discussion probably counts as complaining.

Everybody though is always like "Giant Bomb has changed" so what, I grew sideburns the shaved them off because they were a complete mistake during the time Giant Bomb has been a thing... THINGS CHANGE.

@Hailinel: His writing style is funny. That's what's appealing. It may not be funny to everyone, but it is to many. He has a knack for combining extreme vulgarity with very verbose, kinda sophisticated comparisons and metaphors that go on and on. Simple as that. Back when I still gave half a fuck about Homestuck, one of the funniest parts to me were Karkat's long-winded vulgar monologues and Dave Strider's ironically radical-to-the-extreme rants. Some people find vulgar language used creatively amusing and I'm one of these people. Especially since my own language has a ton of swear-words, so it's comparatively easier to craft something funny out of them than in the English language.

Yeah, no one is trembling, but at the same time people are talking all the time why the fuck he got a list here. Because the staff asked him, that's why. Hell, they probably know him a bit closer by now. They think he should be off the forums because his behavior may rile up people and they are right - people are blabbering about a singular list and I myself wouldn't want him as a regular on the forums if that was supposed to be the response to everything he writes.

And people talking how a user should get a featured top 10 are just... There are fucking blog posts. Make yourself a top 10. Maybe you'll get featured in that blip on the site if it's remarkable enough. The weird sense of entitlement around here is just concerning to me and is just as creepy as whiners complaining about Patrick being friends with Jeff, Brad, Ryan and Vinny. People are confusing the staff with the sky and they are desperately trying to touch it, and fuck if everything isn't trying to collapse that precious blueness in their eyes.

"FUCK YOUTUBE PUT THAT LITTLE HOTNESS ON REAL TELEVISION. OR MY LAP"

I'm all for a yearly dose of the MOTHERFUCKER, but in a year when the issue of sexism in gaming has finally been given some meaningful debate and introspection, seeing this quote in a "news" article on this site is a bit sad really.

Posted by BaconGames

I personally have no need for him on twitter but this is the one time of the year I'll pay attention to Zodiac MF and love what he does and then move on. I think Ryan has this list precisely because it's weird and he gets to feature something that wouldn't exist elsewhere from him.

It's plain that Ryan is a big fan of his and that he gets to feature him on the site makes perfect sense. As for his "humor", I love it in cases like this but it's all caps machismo and it's been the same all caps machismo for years. You either love him or hate him but arguing over it or going at each others throats over it is so goddamn pointless it's hilarious. The quicker people realize that he crafts statements like that to be self-fulfilling prophecies and so when people comment that they don't like him, he still wins.

Anyway, fascinating stuff. I have a feeling he wouldn't have put Walking Dead at his 2 spot if he didn't legitimately love that game when he played it as dude and not ZMF but comes up with a ZMF write-up for it. At least that's how I'm reading it anyway.

Sure, you can question it and there's nothing wrong with that. I just think that this whole thing is going too far. His list is once a year thing so I don't think it really matter's that much. It's just a list so people shouldn't complain and be angried that much. He's just a dude... Let it go... Think happy thoughts.;)

I bet ZMF just rips his caps lock key off once he's turned it on.

Posted by LaserJesus

Look, people like Zodiac because they think he's funny. I could break down every single facet of his posts and persona that I find funny, but you'll never understand it that way. Humor is a gut reaction kind of thing. Your sense of humor isn't something intellectually constructed. Laughter is an involuntary action. You either find something funny or you don't.

I would also like to point out that he's not just a former user of the site who got banned, he's a Twitter personality. Is that super relevant to the games industry? Not really. But neither are Jhonen Vasquez or Max Temkin. Neither of them work in video games, but they are prominent internet figures who talk about games. Some people might be interested in their opinions.

And come ON, you can't tell me "I FUCKED UP A SHARK" isn't hilarious.
