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.)
