Videogames versus the real world

News flash! Hedgehogs don’t wear sneakers, plumbers don’t save princesses and archaeologists – even when female – don’t dig through the dirt dressed like Hooters waitresses. Yes, yes, yes, we all know videogames are rather ridiculous when you stop and think about them…

Why mock the virtual world for being so bizarre, however, when you can mock the real world for being so damn dull? Our hobby might distort our reality beyond all recognition, but based on these 30 comparisons, maybe reality is just overrated.

Got a match-up you think is equally ludicrous or enlightening?
Suggest it in the comments section below!

    I would have enjoyed this if you hadn't of put the obnoxious Winner: Video Games after every picture.

    Please to note, the real world won at the end. because we all know a real hedgehog is much cuter and less annoying than sonic the hedgehog.

    Pffft. Of course CNN loses out on holograms, their hologram was a cheap, extremely expensive trick involving like 50 HD cameras. reCaptcha: today's internet

    Plumbers - TRUE! (Hell yea, Mario!) Hedgehogs - FALSE! (YO! Sonic kicks ass!) Pandas - ...IDK? (aww, they're cute, but tough. umm...)

    also this company is bias because they only release the internet on the computer go choke on it
  • SuperStingray - February 24, 2009 2:57 a.m.

    Gotta disagree on Sonic. Can real life hedgehogs run at the speed of sound and turn into a sentient sawblade? I think not!
  • majorsuave - February 24, 2009 1:34 a.m.

    I disagree on plumbers and toads.
  • Hurricrane - February 23, 2009 4:40 a.m.
