14 important life lessons we can learn from video games

Proverbs are a big waste of time. They're meaningless words that stupid people use in the hope of sounding wise and prophetic. But you can't make an omelette without breaking some eggs.

This feature actually started out as something different and turned into this video games crossed with proverbs thing along the way. I thought I'd call it '14 important life lessons we can learn from video games' because even the word 'proverb' is annoying. So I didn't want to put it in the headline. I guess it's true what they say... you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Anyway, this is it.

    I recently thought of having Kirby involved in a "You are what you eat" poster

    You guys forgot Cave Johnson's saying "When life gives you lemons..."

    Hehe, yeah the walkthrough one is pretty dead on. I know it is a personal problem and not a result of the industry or anything like that, but I have gotten so lazy anymore. If I am stuck for even just a few minutes, it seems I never have the willpower to not pop online and just get an idea of what to do next. Thank god for http://www.uhs-hints.com/ , which gives you step-by-step hints rather than telling you specifically what to do unless you ask it to.

    HAHA! Great work Gameradar, again your witty humour and unique game related content makes my day. (This is not related to the article but any and more MGS, metal gear solid articles etc would be great, as I'm a big fan you see :)

    Where's a video game bible when you need it?

    The Vanquish tutorial was, honestly, the biggest waste of time. I was forced to learn how to look up an down and side to side. It was so long, I'm sure it is the reason that game didn't have multiplayer.

    Well done Matt, another work of art.

    Bear shitting in the woods? Wait, was Eddie Murphy trying to be proverbial all along? :P

    Those were awesmome.

    Those are all worthy of becoming Gamedom's equivalent of the Motivational Poster. Count on seeing them pop up all over the place online a short time from now until #3 hits too close to home for you,Cundy. Good job all around.

    One of my quotes online is "If at first you don't succeed, use Game Genie."

    I love the acorn one. Good old Fable..
  • Bobishungry - June 24, 2011 12:25 p.m.

    They were all great but i didn't get the tree and acorn one. Does this mean i'm dumb?
  • Angels-Get-High - June 24, 2011 12:20 p.m.

    Matt you're a damn genius....
  • philipshaw - June 24, 2011 11:58 a.m.

    Too true
  • cj12297 - June 24, 2011 11:55 a.m.

    Hilarious. This was really funny. CUNDY!!!
