8. From Kendrick Lamar to Game: Hitman: Absolution

One Compton native gifts another plus with this killer action shooter. It makes a nice apology from Kendrick or killing off Game’s career.

9. From President Barack Obama to Mitt Romney: Assassin’s Creed 3

This may be the closet ‘Mittens’ will get to fundamentally changing the course of American History.

And it’s well suited for him, since horses and bayonets are prominently featured in the game.

10. From the Hip-Hop Community to Lil Wayne, T.I., and Young Jeezy: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Clearly, they want to shoot ish up (or they're extremely paranoid). Logging onto to XBLA with one of these online shooters is the safe and lawful way to peel their haters’ caps back. Oh, and FYI, Zombies mode is the truth!
