20 Funny Video Game Memes

As a video gamers, it’s very easy to get caught up in the fantasy world and Funny Video Game Memes can help us regain some perspective — you could say that they perform a ‘therapeutic role’.

A good game will connect us to the characters, the environment and the tasks that spread out before us. When we’re completely immersed, we find ourselves thinking about game-related issues on our way to work or school, in work or school, on our way home, at dinner, and just about every other moment of the day…

And often — and I say this from personal experience — we ignore or don’t fully recognise some of the inconsistencies in the game itself. The logic of the world or the logic of the actions of characters in the world. We are so immersed in the game and so committed that we accept everything as if it were a reality.

Sometimes — and, again, I say this from personal experience — sometimes we don’t even realise how illogical something or someone in our game is, until we see a video game meme about it and think ‘oh yes, that happened!’…

Although, saying that, I always thought it was kinda strange how, in World of Warcraft, a fully armoured character could swim perfectly well, — whilst fully armoured! Yet needed a potion to breath longer under water and could only run for a set period of time before becoming tired.

Swim, wearing armour? Run, wearing armour?…

And sure, there’s nothing logical about Fortnite — after all, who here has ever taken a flying bus and parachuted out of it into a battle arena? But, within that world, there are some issues with natural phenomena —  building stairs that go on forever yet only the first step has any contact with the ground? We can only carry 5 items yet we can chop down entire trees and carry as much of that wood as we like? We can run forever and perpetually jump (really, quite high)…

Hey, I got over it pretty quickly, but it just goes to show how many inconsistencies there are within game worlds — and it’s become the self-appointed task for meme makers all over the internet to recognise them and point them out in the funniest way possible…

So here is the first in a series of posts with some of our favorite (and most hilarious) video game memes — offered as a ‘gift’ to you gamers out there, to help you recognise, and laugh at, some of the strangeness of the worlds you love to play in..

Our 20 Hilariously Funny Video Game Memes for Gamers

 

Funny Video Game Memes - Air Assassination today and before
Funny Video Game Memes – Air Assassination today and before

1. How air assassinations look now, and how they used to look…

…Ever stop to think about how things have changed in the gaming world since it all began just… 30 years ago ( More or less)? Although no matter how realistic the graphics, those jumps are still inhumanly high! Olympian, in fact…

Funny Video Game Memes - Acting like this
Funny Video Game Memes – Acting like this But having a PC like this

2. Acting like this but having a computer like this…

…When you’re pounding away on Fortnite, or any other Battle Royale, do you ever stop to wonder what kind of kit your competitors are using? It’s easy to assume they’re all on high spec Alienware machines with the latest graphics cards set to ‘high’ but it’s just as likely they’re still using Windows 2000 with everything on low…

Funny Video Game Memes - Accused of Murder
Funny Video Game Memes – Accused of Murder

3. Accused of Murder: Proves innocence by murdering…

…In truth, few of us care too much about the motivations behind our characters or game world. Truth is, most of us just want the guns and the best ‘blasting’ experience possible. When you begin to closely examine the logic behind many game scenarios, it falls away pretty quickly…

Funny Video Game Memes - Your room is upstairs

4. Your room is upstairs. Your mom sleeps in the kitchen…

…Ok, this one is just a direct hit on the younger gamers out there. Funny, all the same…

5. You’re frozen. So gravity doesn’t affect you…

…Ok, so how does this one work – really? Freezing has the capability to defy gravity? What does anyone need a parachute for?

Funny Video Game Memes - The president’s daughter has been kidnapped

6. The president’s daughter has been kidnapped…

…A fairly ‘standard’ video game set up here — some huge tragedy or crime takes place and the responsibility for solving or correcting or preventing it falls upon our happless hero, who starts out with only the most basic equipment and weapons and has the supplementary task of keeping alive with bottles of water or potions (or herbs) he finds along the way… ye, right…

7. Survive a shotgun to the chest…

…Video game designers have plans for us. They want us to do certain things and not do others. Some of those things are difficult or unusual, but they want us to do (or not do) them of our own accord. So they make some things easy and others difficult.

So, they don’t want us to die too easily, so a simple shotgun wound to the chest is treated like a ‘graze’. But they don’t want us to take our horses with us across certain rivers so we drown. It all makes sense to the game designer — not so much to the game mplayer!

8. Can flip a 66 ton battle tank…

…Can’t make it too easy for players to use weapons, so let’s give those pistols a massive recoil — that will add some difficulty! But, oh, there’s going to be a whole load of destroyed vehicles in the way so let’s make it easy to move them…

Funny Video Game Memes - Slaughters entire army in front of half the town

9. Slaughters an entire army…

…Funny how ‘wanted’ posters often seem to represent the collective memories of npcs in the game (Non-Player Characters). All you need to do is remove the wanted posters and, hey presto, you’re no longer wanted!

… just need to take all the prices off the items now…

Funny Video Game Memes - I hate this game
Funny Video Game Memes – I hate this game

11. I hate this game! (Time played: 15 days, 21 hrs)…

…Well, this is just standard practice for any gamer — I guess it depends a lot on the game how long you play before you start up with ‘I hate this game’. With Fortnite I started pretty early on, I got to admit….

Funny Video Game Memes - I can’t possibly fit through here

12. I can’t possibly fit through here…

…Love these — somehow, just the presence of ‘bars’ makes a character imprisoned, regardless of their actual effectiveness.

…Ok, so now we got to one of my big problems with games — the ‘hidden’ caches of sophisticated weaponry and ammunition that is scattered everywhere around the game world. I know, I know, games aren’t supposed to be ‘realistic’ — but when so much effort goes into graphics and movement, then we just trip over massive caches of weaponry right next to the secure base we’re supposed to attack…

Funny Video Game Memes - Elite Soldier VS Fat Italian Plumber

16. Elite soldier can run for 15 seconds…
