Jon Stewart’s ‘A Jewish Christmas Carol’
Iowa Baseball Players Say Their House is Haunted, Ghosts Are Stealing ...

One of the most powerful men in video games, in cartoon form

I’ve mentioned Gabe Newell a few times already, but have never truly explained why he’s so damn important to video games. Time for your animated history lesson.

The above was produced by Lore, a YouTube channel that specializes in detailing the backstories of games, so this one is a bit of a departure. Though their previous clips are well worth checking out, since they really do demonstrate how flat out retarded most video game plots truly are.

I’m particularly fond of their explanation of Batman: Arkham City

As well as Ninja Gaiden‘s…

Meanwhile, Kingdom Hearts requires almost two minutes to explain and still doesn’t make a damn bit of sense. But at least they tried…

If the above made you angry, that’s a TOTALLY normal reaction.

About Matt Hawkins... Matt Hawkins is an NYC based video game journalist, designer, consultant, and cultralist. He's been published in EGM, Kotaku, and MSNBC amongst others. Matt also makes comics and zines, is obsessed with cable access, gets into arguments with homeless people all the time, and once had his nipple bitten off during a one night stand. But that's neither here nor there.
