THE TOP 1 LIST OF TOP 100 GAMES OF THE 21st CENTURY LISTS USING DRACONIAN COPYRIGHT TERMS
CGMR.NET has ranked the top 1 "top 100 games of the PlayStation 2 / Xbox / GameCube generation based wholly on unit sales" lists utilizing draconian copyright terms. Analysis includes only the observation of ridiculous statements about what someone can and cannot copy from the list.

This list's order and content is copyright to Curmudgeon Gamer and must not be reproduced or copied without the permission of the publisher, or his mother.

Here are some notes on how this list works.
  • Winners are chosen on the basis of number of draconian copyright statements.
  • Games are ranked on total number of ridiculous statements about copyright and then by gratuitous use of caps-lock in the the title.
  • Driving simulators using the word "Gran" in the title, evolved Marathon clones, and felonious criminal activity simulators are not the top three in this exclusive CGMR.NET list. This list has only one entry.


And the winner is:
  1. Next-Gen.biz's THE TOP 100 GAMES OF THE 21st CENTURY

Dude, they've just barely got a sentence of copyright info in there. I have to imagine even the most nascent shareware author could do a better job with their EULA than this crud.

Hopefully next year's competition will fare better, as I do enjoy attempts at, "It is written, therefore law is void."

We're already taking nominations for next year's list.

I would like to point out that their little warning shows up on at least 3 (maybe more) of the pages of that 11 page article. Ugh.

Well if they're not going to protect their copyright actively, I saw we post every page's content without the warning, out of order, Campbell's Soup style, of course.
