It's Monday and it's...raining...

It's becoming a reoccurring theme, these rainy Mondays, but it's okay because Monday means another Top 7! Last week we paid homage to the most popular video game character of all time so naturally, this week we're taking a look at the greatest animals of all time...(don't ask)

A lot of video games tend to focus on animals. I don't know why, I don't know when it started and I don't know who started it but somewhere along the line someone said 'hey, let's make this character a cat'. Maybe it's our close attachment to animals as humans or maybe Jim brought some of his special brownies to the office one day but we love animals. Animals have become so big in video games that some of the biggest characters of all time are animals. Sometimes they have such vibrant and colorful personalities that we even forget they're animals in the first place.
