Sup guys and girls, it's time for another Comedy Goldmine. Forums Goon Bewilderbeest thought it would be a unique idea to combine two of everybody's favorite pasttimes in video games and movies, and he asked the forums to indulge him in photographically pondering what it would be like if certain video game characters tried their respective hand at acting. The result? Well, you'll find out soon enough.
Much like Alex Trebek knows the questions to all the answers he reads off, I am instantly familiar with every video game and motion picture ever created. However, I'm gonna let you guys do the math on these ones and refrain from offering my usual, blisteringly witty comments, as I feel I would therefore be compromising the subtlety of the humor in most of them. For any given picture, you've probably either seen the movie or played the game referenced anyway, if not both. For every one that completely throws you for a loop, you can pat yourself on the back for being less of a geek than you thought you were!
Ok, enough out of me — Bewilderbeest gets us going.
BLACK LIVES MATTER!!! NOOOOOOO!!! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? YOU HAVE CREATED A MONSTER, AN ABSOLUTE MONSTER!
