10 simple steps to being a better videogame bad guy

We've killed countless enemies in our time playing games. Thousands. Maybe even millions. We like to think it's because we're full of skill, but the truth is that gaming's grunts just aren't that smart. It's almost like they want to be shot to bits or blown to pieces. So to even things up a bit for the recruits of gaming's axis of evil - whether terrorist, Nazi or hostile alien - here are 10 simple steps to being a better videogame bad guy.

    Haha really funny article the pictures were fanatastic and clever. One thing i noticed was that securing your helmet is actually a mistake. Soldiers dont do that they keep the straps open. The helemt is secured in non combat dress situations only. A helmet with the strap on can decapitate you if something explodes or hits the helmet near you. Strap on means head flies off with helemt strap off mean helmet flies off with head still attached :)

    I'd like to see a game where you control grunts. It would play alot like lemmings. You postion your grunts near more hazzards(like the red barrel) and once a timer runs down the 'hero' runs in shooting the hazzards and you get points for mass grunt kills, grunt suicide and stupidity, and over the top grunt kills (i.e 10 grunts standing below a grate held up with floss)
