Fake Gamers Of The Week: That Can't Be A Comfortable Way To Play

To see these two boys playing video games is to see true brotherly love, the kind of unparalleled passion that can only be found in suburban living rooms, resting on postmodern sofa cushions with spotless decorum.

Witness their smiles, eternally frozen in toothy bliss. See their eyes, focused on the television with laserlike dedication. Watch their arms, locked in prime position for an intense night of gaming.

But what are they playing? Perhaps it's a survival game, a horrifying experience like Silent Hill or Alan Wake, the type of interactive entertainment that drives even the bravest young warriors to find embrace in each other's arms. Maybe they're staving off alien waves in Mass Effect 3, holding one another like Shepard holds Kaidan during interstellar war. Could be Left 4 Dead, a game that requires unmatched brotherly resolve.

Or maybe they're not playing a thing. Maybe they don't need to. Maybe all they need is each other.

Or maybe they don't need to hug. Maybe they can play video games without that level of comfort.

Maybe somebody should get that guy away from those kids.

    And they're are not even official controllers lol. They're the PS3 controllers designed as 360 ones :P

    "Oh, this is such fun, playing video games with my best friend, my brother-in-arms, cheering together as we defeat our enemies and save OHMYGODPEDOPHILE!!"

      I appear to have laughed and snorted hot tea through my nose after reading that comment.

      I don't know whether to tip my hat to you or or curse your name.

      Well played.

    I spent ages trying to figure out what the hell those controllers were.
