Fans of Breaking Bad will find loads to love about this faux-game video created by College Humor: accurate character dialog, comical asides that break the fourth wall and perhaps the greatest Duck Hunt clone known to man. Chemistry!...

How had we never put this together before? MTV's sorrowfully popular reality show Jersey Shore shares common elements with every RPG ever: Dudes with outrageously spiky hair, puzzlingly proportioned women, so much fighting, near-incomprehensible dialogue ... the list of similarities goes on and on....

You might find College Humor's latest video game parody clip, posted just past the jump, a hilarious look at what might have been had classic games been laughably more accessible. We see it as a haunting vision of things to come. That easy mode included in Mega Man 10? That's how it all starts....

On first blush, the workplace behind the scenes of the "increasingly frustrating action" game Duck Hunt doesn't seem so bad -- the boss is smart and organized, the space is very modern and clear of cubicle clutter, and all the worker ducks get free drugs and junk food! We have to pay for our meatba...

We have to give it to College Humor, they know how to hold up a satirical mirror to video game conventions and culture. Whether to show the horror inflicted upon The Sims or the pervasive nature of l33t speak. What's interesting about College Humor's latest video, "The Video Game Bosses' Lament,...

We've all seen Super Mario Bros. parodies before -- some that even make Mario a pretty sick and deranged dude. Been there, done that. But, what makes this College Humor video so special -- aside from its unusually grody depiction of the brothers Mario -- is its surprise ending. We won't spoil it fo...

Perhaps, in the past, during a rousing round of Tetris, you may have found yourself in an existential funk. "Where does the next block come from?" you mused. Sure, it's easy enough to pin your extraordinary luck (or misfortune) on the wonders of random generation, but what if it wasn't so simple? W...

"They won't let me pee, they won't let me sleep, they won't let me eat." – doomed Sim citizen Ah yes, the life of a Sim. Not so funny when one sees what life would be like if our actions were controlled by the unholy Plumbob (which is itself controlled by little Damian Van Horne of 999 Wis...

A young girl brings her boyfriend home to meet the parents, to disastrous results. Yes, it's a tale as old as time, a song as old as rhyme. However, in this case, the girl's parents are the "L33ts," an upper-class and tech-savvy family with a penchant for FiOS and fine gaming. Unleashing a hail of ...

It was bound to happen. One day, the minions of Bowser would stand up and ask, "Why won't you let us kill The Mario?" That day has come, my friends. The minions of Bowser have revolted against their king and are ready to take the issue of killing The Mario into their own hands, paws, mouths and as...

We don't get to talk much about Grand Theft Auto on a Nintendo blog, but the folks at College Humor whipped up this silly video showing what the game would be like on the NES. After seeing this, we think Rockstar should seriously consider adding a tanuki suit in the next iteration of the game (w...

Big thanks to Supafine's "Legend of Zelda: Visceration Station" webcomic for finally (and logically) explaining the heart system to us. The least we, as the Joystiq community, can apparently do is bestow you the honor of best game-related webcomic of the week. Second and third place went to XKCD an...

Scott Gairdner posts a short, sweet video about the advantages of riding a Yoshi over a Segway. The subtle edits and great production entertain, even if the theme is less epic than other videogame riffs. Keep a close eye--and ear--on the action for Super Mario World in-jokes. See the video after the...
