Each week The Broadside staff selects a category, then after much deliberation, an inevitable tantrum, and the occasional thumb-war, staff members rank the top five best (or worst) and give readers the chance to critique our list.
For the last issue of 2012-2013, we’ve compiled the ‘Top 5 Top 5s.’ Take a look back at the best and worsts as chosen by The Broadside.
Best burger in Central Oregon
The tastiest top five involved sampling burgers from all over Central Oregon.
Pilot Butte: A family-friendly diner experience, known as the “burger, fry and shake experience.”
Greatest Nintendo video game
We had to dust off the old Nintendo 64 for this top five.
Super Mario 64: Breathtaking level design, endless exploration, epic battles against Bowser, classic tunes, and memorable power-ups makes this one legendary game.
Best classic rock song
This highly disputed top five is still a sore subject in the newsroom.
“Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” by Jimi Hendrix: The opening licks immediately catch the listener’s attention, making it one of the most recognizable song introductions of all-time.
