Okay, so this video isn't actually that bleak. In fact it's pretty damn funny. It is though, a rather heavy ironic indictment of the prevalence of online shooters and me-too game design in the modern era. That's what I'm interpreting it as anyway. Animator freddiew might just have made it for shits and giggles. But you know, I'm highbrow like that, and crap.
I particularly like the way he's re-interpreted CoD's 2D mini-map as the original Super Mario Bros' World 1-1 scrolling by in the corner. That's clever, that is. Jolly good show.
Also, if you watch it on the original YouTube page, hold down your 1 key while it's playing.
