    That game designer is a sadist. :lol:

    And, it's a little passé, but I still love the 3 o'clock gremlin :D

    Thank you, sir; you were taken from us too soon. :cry:

    Well, I've been hanging around 'Loading Ready Run' for a while now, and sucking up their video archives like some humour-seeking dried-out sponge :blush: but the following HAS to be my favourite:

    Installation Anxiety

    (just because you can do something, doesn't necessarily mean you should, you know :lol:)

    In addition to Zero Punctuation, the Escapist has another video serie, de-rez. It's about real people who are unlucky enough to meet videogame characters.
    Their first couple videos were frankly bad. But the latest was a big surprise, it was actually fun. Check it out.
    (If you don't know Resident Evil, the main point is that the characters are idiots and one of the earlier games was about you slaughtering Spanish peasants)

    Mauvais Role

    'Tis a French animated short about a game character who wants to break the 'typecasting' of being the 'Grand Foozle' all the time, and takes matters into his own claws.

    Fan-dirtyword-tastic job, and they're kind enough to put English subtitles for those of us whose French is a little rusty. :D

    If anything from the thread title, I guess this fits into the "impressive" category, a very moving video I was emailed by my mother, the second and third are similar but (obviously) Single Parent versions

    Parent's Wish
    Single Father
    Single Mother

    I spent half my childhood playing that game on PC. I couldn't imagine trying to do it in RL.

    You know the "You wouldn't steal a car" video they have on every DVD? The one with the site that just says DOWNLOAD with a huge, blue, loading bar underneath? (It also only takes a minute to download movies from there for some reason)

    Here's the better version: You wouldn't invade Poland!
