I've written enough list columns to know that they bring out the troll in everybody. There is something about a random person's arbitrary ranking system that other human beings just cannot fathom. EA's Peter Moore is no different, and the feline Sports game boss has fallen prey to the selfsame hatred of Listmania. At least this guy has his reasons.

The target of his bitchery is Eurogamer, who did not rank FIFA 09 among its top fifty games of 2008. The cat-like head of EA Sports cannot fathom this, and has done what any man in his position would do -- he bitched about it on the Internet.

"Now I get that the sports genre is the Rodney Dangerfield of games when the awards are handed out," Moore states in a blog post. "But c'mon, one of the best sports games of recent times not even in the Top 50?"

Moore doesn't stop there. "Tomb Raider? OK, that's interesting," he states, while also sharing his belief that Mass Effect deserved more than position 49. He does state that he is "proud" to see Lost Odyssey on the list, which has raised my opinion of the man considerably. However, no FIFA makes him a sad kitty cat. 

"Really? Seriously? Is it not cool to include a so-called mass market game?" he asks. "Bangai-O Spirits (no disrespect Treasure) makes it and FIFA 09 doesn't? Eurogamer -- you are and always will be one of my favorite gaming web-sites, but you were waaaay offside on this one."

If it's any consolation Peter, FIFA 09 is at the top of my list of games in 2009 that were about football and published by EA Sports and called FIFA 09.
