FreddieW, champion of YouTube and hero to creative underdogs the world around, has assembled a team of the most popular, most badass gaming legends of today's generation to face off against old-school minions and icons...and the results aren't pretty.
Huge props to FreddieW, the cosplayers and special effects that go into this video short. It's a parody of what would happen if all of today's new-gen heroes, led by none other than Master Chief and featuring Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, Nathan Drake from Uncharted and Ezio from Assassin's Creed, came together and tried to fight off an invading horde of classic Atari icons, including digitized tanks, pong paddles, space invaders and asteroids. Check it out below.
Haha, I'm glad old-school won. While technically it wasn't necessarily fair, as the tanks and space invaders should have gone up against units from games like Supreme Commander or StarCraft II as well as arcade shooters such as Geometry Wars or, um...hmm...well, I guess they don't make many popular mainstream arcade shooters anymore. Anyway, it was still cool seeing how the new-school relied on a lot of conventional weapons and the old-school relied on 4-bit lasers.
I'm pretty sure I don't know to further explain who FreddieW is or what sort of content you can view on his channel, but just in case you're new to this kind of indie creativity, feel free to check out more of Freddie Wong's work on the official YouTube channel.
