Check Out How This Game Developer Dad Celebrated His Son’s First Birthday

Ben Stirling is a game developer whose son just celebrated his first birthday. Instead of the Mainway Bag O’ Glass we received for our first birthdays, Stirling opted to give his son a gift he’ll be able to laugh about eventually. He photoshopped the kid into popular video games like Mario Kart (above) and Portal.

We’ve placed all the photoshops below. We wouldn’t condone children being in some of these game environments, but we wholeheartedly endorse the Mass Effect one. When Mordin Solus says anything to you — anything at all — always answer, “poop”.


Mass Effect:

Gears Of War:

Left 4 Dead:

Little Big Planet:
