A hidden surprise in the best-selling game Modern Warfare 2 has only just been discovered - or so the uploaders of Secret Old Lady would have us believe. Super-skillful video editing sees a pinafore-wearing English housewife pop out of a war-torn shack, telling gamers to clear off and play somewhere else in YouTube's most watched gaming video for the week ending July 22.

Snappy post-production is once again prominent in the second placed video, 'Skydiving out my front door'. It links to a behind the scenes video explaining just how students at the University of Southern California made the magic happen.

Interest in the science-fiction strategy game StarCraft II shows no sign of abating ahead of its July 27 release, as three of the top ten videos are footage of matches played using pre-release builds.

Elsewhere, game developers Valve give away Alien Swarm for free, and walkthrough wizard Tasselfoot provides a step-by-step guide for popular browser game Crazy Craft.
