This nightmare scenario brought to you by Ultraviper.
The goons at Something Awful have come up with a great theme for today’s Comedy Goldmine which was relevant to our interests. Forum member Experto Crede pitched the idea of photoshopping classic video games to ruin the game or to add in modern gaming “innovations” which actually suck.
How would you like to play Pac-Man in a mode where all the ghosts are that erratic orange slowpoke, Clyde? Would you like your games interrupted by constant pop-ups about sharing your progress on Facebook? How about being forced into constant microtransactions to build your character’s stats before you’ve even played the game long enough to know if it’s worth paying to play?
All of these modern changes to games we used to like are available at Something Awful. We’ve posted our favorite photoshops from the set below.

When not writing for Uproxx, Caleb likes to volunteer at the legless cat shelter and photoshop the Babadook into all of his family photos. He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
