If game characters couldn't be bothered

Every now and then, be it at work or play, we all feel like saying: “Screw it. I simply can’t be assed.” There’s no shame in it. After all, apathy is both big and clever. But what if some of our favourite game characters took this bone idle approach to their adventures?

Super Mario Bros.

Shadow of the Colossus

Yoshi's Island

God of War

Metal Gear Solid


Halo 3

Heavy Rain

Space Invaders

Hitman: Blood Money

Street Fighter II

    (someone else already said it, but...) Who can blame Yoshi? If you're happy lounging around with an umbrella stuck up your ass, you really shouldn't be expected to do anything else.

    "yoshi gets some well deserved off-time." yoshi doesn't deserve ANYTHING, not rest, not even his own video game. yoshi is the compilation of pretty much all the worst parts of every video game character in history. HE DESERVES NOTHING!!! on an unrelated note I thought the whole article was funny "you lost me at 'but' pal.

    This would make a great forum thread with reader submitted content if it hasn't been done yet.

    That was worthy of my lol. Lolz! :) Btw I've always wondered- how do people mimic fonts in photoshop/gimp?

    Kinda reminds me of the angry video game nerd joke where he's like, what if mario just sat there and was like "no, I'm not going" haha

    LOL I cant stop laughing at Kratos's facial expression, where did that come from XD?
  • KNITEpanda - January 28, 2011 5:52 p.m.

    Did I seriously read "Is that the eye of Sauron in the Yoshi's Island" I think that was funnier than all these pics put together... Seriously??

    @asspills + jackthemenace We say 'Can't be arsed.' An ass is a donkey.

    Reminds me of an N game level where you could either go right and take the door instantly, or go left between a bunch of super explosive rocket zapping homing missle gauss mine traps to get a piece of gold. ...The caption was "Hell no..."
