Why you shouldn't punch metal boxes

We’ve seen Futurama’s “what if life was more like a video game,” but what if video games were more like real life? If they were I would have to recommend NOT punching floating boxes made out of steel.

    SOMEONE CALL A MEDIC!! CURE 3 USE IT!, or does he need a phoenix down?

    Acording to the clock he died in less then a second. Just though I would point that out…

    Considering that in real life just hitting one of those blocks kills you, I can't help but wonder what would other games would be like if they wore like real life. I just know, whatever the outcome, its not going to be a good result.

    looks like his fists are not made of steel anymore!

    Nothing in that game should ever be attempted. If you see ten-foot turtles walking around, you run immediately.

    Anyone else notice the sly "Over 9000!" in here?

    reality? in my mario games? I think he is out of mushrooms

  8. Badonk on April 15th, 2010 7:13 pm

    Very true, no princes in real life would ever put out to a plumber.

    Wild floating metal box appeared!

    Player sends out Mario!

    Mario uses SHORYUKEN!

    Metal Box counters for massive damage! Mario faints!

    In Soviet Russia, blocks smash you!

  11. TehVortex on April 15th, 2010 8:39 pm

    Can't let you do that, ? Box.

    Sorry mario, if only you studied karate instead of baing a plumber

  13. Starfox64x on April 15th, 2010 10:00 pm

    Technically, Mario hits it with his hand… his hand goes up one moree pixel than his head… so actually his hand would be broken… also, whenever Mario would normall stand on a pipe, he would just slip inside and get stuck… But the Fire flower is TOTALLY believable…

    WWAAAHA—-*Smash*

    NOW GO HOME AND EAT SOME VEGETABLES, DR. MARIO'S ORDERS!

  15. meinmattias on April 15th, 2010 6:14 pm

    For heaven's sake, don't eat the mushrooms!

  16. MasterLuigi452 on April 16th, 2010 12:01 am

    This does raise one question.
    What is made out of Mario's hand exactly?

  17. BoxeyBrown on April 16th, 2010 12:11 am

    After that point in world 1-1, the whole game is a dream mario is having while he's in a coma

  18. ArmyOfMidgets on April 16th, 2010 12:11 am

    Looks like Mario missed his

    *puts on shades*

    Head Start.

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!

  21. DrSexington on April 16th, 2010 1:36 am

    I was expecting a wolf joke on the last side, but this is better

  22. WolvenGlory on April 16th, 2010 1:57 am

    If only he were Sonic.
    That one coin would've saved him.

  23. EphEphEcksIII on April 16th, 2010 3:18 am

    What if it was because he jumped into the pointy part of the block?

  24. AuraMaster on April 17th, 2010 5:00 am

    This is why "Realism Mode" isn't included in Mario games.
