Greetings, everyone! I'm Nick "Mayor Wilkins" Dunn, and I'll be taking over the Comedy Goldmine so that Ryan "OMGWTFBBQ" Adams can devote more time to molesting dead cattle. I can barely wait to get started, and since I see no reason to wait, let's go ahead and get started.

Forums goon xdrquinnx started a thread this week about old, nonviolent video games, saying:

"Before the days of Mortal Kombat, video games were generally pretty non-violent. Well, there was violence, I guess, but it was never very graphic. Mario hopped on a goomba, squished it and it disappeared. Link hit something with a sword and it flashed a couple times before vanishing. You'll never get kids' attention nowadays with that sort of sissy nonsense..."

And everyone rushed in to fill screenshots of old video games with blood, gore, and whorehouses. Enjoy this week's Comedy Goldmine, "Adding Violence To Nonviolent Video Games."

xdrquinnx starts things off by arming Link, Texas-style.

xdrquinnx will get to Oregon at any cost.

xdrquinnx just can't stop cranking out the pictures.

xdrquinnx is finished, whether he wants to be or not.

TheSniperZERO knows how to make 'em squeal.

semi semite is terrible at collecting rings.

y2kdogg is reminding me of Kill Bill, even though I've never seen it.

purple_haze does what I've always wanted to do.

This Week on Something Awful...



    TOTAL WRECK - crazy-eyed hound is covered in cobwebs, has a vespiary on back, graffiti on side and savage thirst for boat fuel. Frankly, I'm in over my head. He's in room 115 at Motel 6, yours free. 555-2851



    Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
