Videogames versus the real world - second showdown!

Breaking news! Toad isn’t actually a toad... street fighting doesn’t involve fireballs… guns rarely come with chainsaws attached… and a theoretical physicist has never spent his scientific career smashing zombie head crabs with a blood-soaked crowbar.

As we demonstrated last week, however, the real world would be a hell of a lot more interesting if any of the above was true. In fact, when we pit gaming against reality in 30 matches, the virtual world came away with an almost perfect score of 29-1. What lost? See for yourself.

Now we’re using reader suggestions to give the real world a second chance. Can it finally overcome our pixelated imaginations? Doubtful.
