Game characters who would make disastrous dates from Hell

The romantic stroll from Hell

Nothing screams romance and 'too cheap to spring for dinner' than a quiet stroll in the park. Not only do you get some exercise, but if you're really lucky, you might even get a cheeky fondle in some shrubbery.

Naturally, if your date just happens to be Nintendo royalty that keeps getting kidnapped by big-ass, jealous dinosaurs every 15 minutes, well, we'd probably just give that whole 'dying alone thing' one more go...

The cinema date from Hell

Going to the cinema on a first date is always a safe bet. You don't have to talk to each other much, you get to watch that horror film you've been gagging to see and you can nick loads of her popcorn when she's having a mini panic attack during an onscreen evisceration. Just a word of warning, though. Best to check your date isn't the sweariest person alive before you take your seats...

In Agent Washington's defence, his nerves are probably frayed to shit after all those hundreds of zombies trying to rip out his jugular.

The internet date from Hell

If Chris Hansen and To Catch a Predator have taught us anything, other than watching sex-offenders squirm is worryingly entertaining, it's you should never hook up with someone you meet online...

    What about Kratos? He would just murder everybody including his date...unless she had sex with him of course. It seems that's the only way to escape kratos' fury lol.

    Obviously you vastly over-rated your target reader. No one here has ever had a date with another living person. Get real.

    No Mileena from Mortal Kombat?

    My favorite part of this article was seeing the pic of Sly Cooper stealing that chick's purse. XD You guys know how to blend video games and humor quite well. Keep up the funny articles. :D

    @StrayGator @etherealshadow It's Kameo from a 2005/6 X360 game called Kameo: Elements of Power.

    I didn't recognize the rock lady, either. On another note, I love these random articles. They're why I come here.
  • StrayGator - December 14, 2010 5:50 p.m.

    Should I feel bad for not recognising the rock lady?

    You guys just have all sorts of time and money to waste on weird articles don't you?
  • AlmightyFuzz - December 14, 2010 4:40 p.m.

    I'm going to make a guess and say this article came about due you guys having far too much fun with photoshop :)

    Ha ha, just a thinly veiled excuse for Meikleham to flex nis Photoshopping muscles. Waking up to laughs is great.
  • lobsterhunt - December 14, 2010 4:11 p.m.

    That was awesome. Another well-done GR signature feature.
  • batmanboy11 - December 14, 2010 4:07 p.m.
