Fallout 3 knows the rules: beards make video games better. Take these pics as example, showing that even some of the all-time greats - like Mario, Metal Gear and Zelda - can be made greater by handing out beards.
Look at Mario! He's now got a face befitting his steadfastness. Snake? His chin is now as mysterious as his past. And Lara Croft... well, she's just a little creepy.
