Each week — starting with this one — the staffers of pick their five favorite recent videos. And they are….


Fire them lasers by cxnjohn
If you gotta go, death by laser is probably a best-case scenario. Watch as member cxnjohn introduces five enemies to the great, blinding unknown in under 30 seconds in #CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare.


Crazy jump by raziel8787
#Fallout3 is a lot of things, but twitch shooter? Not really. But raziel8787 makes a strong case by hurdling an RPG round as he duels a Super Mutant Brute.


10% life and killing it by Capone
Capone racks up a death count worthy of that other guy named Capone in #BF4, all while clinging to 10hp. As a commenter notes, maybe those dudes should’ve noticed the pile of bodies and proceeded with a little more discretion.


Spintires by PsychoScrooge
If you’re not familiar with #Spintires, it’s like Euro Truck Simulator meets Ivan ‘Ironman’ Stewart’s Super Off Road, but specifically for fans of heavy duty Russian trucks. So kind of a niche audience, you might say. Nevertheless, the degree of offroadin’ depicted in this clip may inspire you to stand up and clap.


How to juke yourself featuring Yasuo by Khbz
Khbz takes the mind games one step further than what’s healthy in #LeagueOfLegends, as he tries to lure Xerath into a turnaround Sweeping Blade, but gets a Shocking Orb to the face instead.
