Pikachu is not amused.

It seems that entirely too often, people wonder what it would be like to see their favorite video games in real life. This results in a nearly infinite number of fan-made videos of varying levels of quality. I’ve done my best to find 12 great ones that span Mario Bros. to Portal. It’s abudantly clear that I’ve probably missed a large number, so feel free to leave your favorites in the comments. Ready…start!

1) Donkey Kong

An elaborate set-up. It’s great, except for the guys laughing like dumbasses on the ground.

2) Half Life 2

The best first person shooter real-life adaptation I could find.

3) Guitar Hero

It’s been debated whether or not this is a professionally made promotional video, but it’s still awesome regardless.

4) Pac man

Leave it to the Japanese to do this exceptionally well.

5) Mario Kart

I just saw this in the last few days. Pretty funny, especially once the cops come.

6) Tetris

It’s kind of a hipster, indie film version of Tetris. If you want a more exciting, bikini-fied version, go here.

7) Mario Bros.

You’ve probably seen this, but that doesn’t make it less awesome.

8 ) Pokemon

Who doesn’t love backyard wrestling Pokemon? Hitmonchan is great.

9) Grand Theft Auto IV

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GHiAEeFQs0

There were a lot of stupid GTA parodies, but I thought this was different and well edited. They could have done more, but the guy who plays Niko is dead on.

10) Portal

I was skeptical at first, but it gets pretty good. That gun looks great too.

11) World of Warcraft

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gliG93jNA9s

The lag part is especially hilarious.

12) Street Fighter

Some truly great video editing here.

If I could live out any game in real life, it would be The Sims. Oh wait…
