Ok, that was surprisingly funny. Listen to The Whelk, people, wait for Tetris.

"I'm the princess. I'm your princess! Rescue me!" Oh man, that's awesome.

Kind of adds a whole new level to Wreck-It Ralph.

Yeah, Tetris was actually the best. Who'd've thunk? =O

Tetris is hilarious, but I wish they'd done Q*Bert.

Metal Gear Solid made me laugh, even though I imagined the joke the moment I saw the title.

I appreciated the meta-commentary of having Mario get all the action while Luigi just sits there and watches, which should ring very true to NES-playing younger siblings all over the world.

Legend of Zelda was pretty good. For the non-french:

"Oh yes, Zelda!"

"No, my name's Link, you're Zelda"

"I say your name's Zelda, it's Zelda, bitch!" *slap*

"OK, OK, I can do that, yeaaaa"

And who says French sex comedies aren't funny?

(Also, Pokémon was surprisingly my favorite.)

The Sims was glorious.

This was a lot funnier than I imagined. I also liked the Metal Gear Solid, despite knowing instantly what the joke would be.

When I was doing my honours thesis, that is was the lowest and most temporary of the low, a straight-laced post-doc, otherwise one of the stars in the lab, got addicted to Tetris. And by addicted, I mean played constantly for six months straight.

She was brilliant, but was also very fond of earthy metaphors, coming from a rural chinese background. The image I remember of Bing is her sitting at the fancy 386 Compaq* yelling: "Hot Beef, come-on, gimme the Hot Beef!"

*One of the first 80386s on the market, the first machine an upstart clone maker had beaten IBM to the market with a new Intel processor. It cost more than $5000. Bought to analyse spectra, but played a heck of a lot of tetris.

One of those guys is basically the French version of Adam Buxton, which is slightly distracting.
