Gaming’s a weird passion. Most people see at a gamer and think “look at this nerd and their obsession with that Pac-Man game.” But those who spend their lives vegetating on the couch watching cable television, are insulated from the same sort of stereotypical insults gamers are traditionally labelled with. Why is it more acceptable to be a film or series-addict than it is to be a gamer? Can’t we all just get along? Some, like those who made these TV, game and film mashups below, have the right idea. Games, TV and film were simply made to exist together. Gooey heaps of credit goes to all the wonderful Youtube artists who created these pixel-perfect videos.
