GamesRadar is no stranger to the list article. Hell, we've posted at least one every week for nearly two years. They're fun to write, easy to read and get the job done in a fraction of the time it'd take you to barf all that information out in non-list form.
But some topics demand a more in-depth touch, and the idea-nauts at GR are more than capable of delivering wordy, researched material for those with enough time to digest it. So, next time someone complains about Top 5 Best SNES Games With Super in the Title (your move, internet), send 'em here for a break from well-organized, easy-to-read mayhem.
