Lists Lists Lists - The Revenge

Just to make you aware, I've rewritten the final chunk from the original because although it seemed like a good idea, formatting didn't exactly go to plan.

Suffice to say, it looks far more presentable.

Anyway, let's crack that whip.

Forget T2 and Aliens, here's the sequel to end all sequels.

If what's contained doesn't kick the plumpest of asses, then Max is no longer in Payne.

Black albums

Thin Lizzy - Black Rose
Cypress Hill - Black Sunday
Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood - Black Pudding
Athlete - Black Swan
Bonobo - Black Sands
Depeche Mode - Black Celebration
Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Black Moon
Vektor - Black Future
Buckcherry - Black Butterfly
In This Moment - Black Widow

Black Plague and Black Monday subs a Penumbra adventure and sequel to The Getaway respectively while Black Flag is not only associated with Assassin's Creed IV, but also a band.

Unless you're very specific, FPS Black (as opposed to FPS and not console) on PS2 can be hard to find.

Twisted Metal and Ninja Gaiden are games dressed in Black.

Before skedaddling, I present my final and favourite burst of innovation.

Indicating year of release isn't just for kicks as remake, reboot or re-imagining can be favoured over original, and vice versa.

Of course, some have no choice but to show the original because remake or whatever didn't yet exist...
