Thursday 16 December 2010
The most viewed gaming videos for the week ending December 16 include The Angry Video Game Nerd re-telling 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' and the Turkish TV commercial for
Gran Turismo 5.
On Japan's Nicovideo chart, Super Mario Bros' characters are replaced by the Nohara family of Shin-chan manga and anime series fame - specifically, Shin Nohara's childish bum-baring antics.
China's Youku chart parades a celebrity-endorsed 1996 fighting game that looks like it was made in 1986, much to the amusement of commentators.
