While checking out a comedy play-through of 1992's 'Alone in the Dark,' PowerStreak noticed a heated discussion between people who poked fun at the game's dated graphics and people who defended them as "amazing" for their era. Of course everyone involved in the debate is dumb and wrong, given that they're all YouTube commenters. However, PowerStreak saw Photoshop-theme potential in the "those graphics ruled ... and still do!" side of the argument, so he urged SA Goons to upgrade today's games with superior 1992-style graphics! Jagged, polygonal faces might be ugly as hell to cool modern gamers who play current titles and can actually recognize the references to them in these images, but they look insanely sick and future-fancy to me, as an RBI Baseball player.

Here's an example PowerStreak posted of the cutting-edge graphics that blew everyone's mind, back in the day.

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
