Geek in the Tubes – Episode 9: Cartoon Videogames

by on March 23, 2012

Geek in the TubesHello, and welcome to episode 9 of Geek in the Tubes, your monthly look at some of the best gaming-related videos which are available on the world wide web.

This week I’ve scoured high and low to find the very best in videogame animation. These are videos which take games as their inspiration, and then reimagine them in animated form.

First up we have a parody video of Counter-Strike, which looks at a typical game of CS and introduces some of the characters you may meet whilst on your travels through the numerous servers. Having played Counter-Strike for quite some time during my youth, I can safely say that I’ve encountered all these different types of players at one point or another.

Next we have a very different take on the world of Super Mario, which reimagines all the main characters in an almost anime style. This video has some fantastic animation, and is well worth a look.

This next video is a parody of Metal Gear Solid, and whilst at times the humour may be a little childish and lowbrow there are some genuinely hilarious moments, in particular for anyone who has played through the PS1 classic.

Our final video this week is an animated musical number which tells the valiant tale of just why Skyrim is such a fantastic game to play. It’s also rather catchy.

And that’s it for this edition of Geek in the Tubes! I’ll be back next month with more video delights for you to enjoy.
