Considering various games base their entire core on street gangs and other such groups, here are ten of the most memorable gangs in video games.
First, in 2009, there was "Angry Birds." Then came "Angry Birds Seasons," which put the birds in Christmas and other holiday scenes. Next was "Angry Birds Rio," set in South America. Finally, "Angry Birds Space" -- set, well, in space.
E3 is nearly upon as, and while you may be too busy typing in Halo 4, Assassin’s Creed III, and “Half-Life 3 leak” into Google News to care, there are many other potential gems to be found at the expo.
