Classic Video Game Characters Brought to Life: Awesome or Uncomfortable?

Super Mario is, without a doubt, a "timeless" character, as are Yoshi, Bowser, and Princess Peach. But timeless doesn't necessarily mean they're unaffected by the passing of time. Next to the realism available to us now in games like "Skyrim," "Modern Warfare 3," "Crysis 2," and the like, even the newest Mario games are exceedingly cartoony. They kind of have to be. To inject the Italian plumber with too much realism would be... creepy.

That's where Yahoo's "Game Characters Get Real" slideshow comes in. They compiled six realistic images of classic Nintendo characters and one power-up -- Mario, Yoshi, Bowser, Peach, Pac-Man, Pikachu, and mushroom from Mario. (A mushroom, not Toadstool. Although we really wish there was a good realistic Toadstool image out there.) Visit Yahoo! for all of the images, and let us know if you think they're awesome -- or downright disturbing (we're looking at you, Mario.)

    SodaHead gaming is bad and should feel bad with it's limited and bland questions/answers.

    Ugh, if Princess Peach with her annoying voice and damsel in distress stupidity was real, I would NOT be happy. Same goes for Ashley Graham from RE4 and Natalya from Golden Eye.

    Damsels in distress get on my nerves!

    And if Albert Wesker was real, we'd all be screwed.

    Sure, they look creepy if they're real, but it's always interesting to see someone else's take on a video game character from what we're given by the developers.

    They only look good in their own worlds. They'll look hideous if they are real.
