A History of Video Game Deaths

Posted by Michael Sacco on Mar 26, 2011 in Videogames |

BoingBoing gives us this video, a grim video diary of deaths from classic video games. It’s funny to see the stark differences between deaths from one game to another, the bombast and understatedness you could experience depending on the game. Exploding into a shower of multicolored pixels is pretty cool, or a series of flashing rings, or a ball of flame, but what about the classic woob-woob-woob-woob of a Pac-Man in his death throes? In games as in real life, not everybody goes out with a bang.
