Pick any schmo off the street and they can easily rattle off every one's favorite video game teams: Mario and Luigi. Rachet and Clank. Sonic and Tails. Mega Man and Rush. Kong and his Diddy. But what about some of the lesser appreciated duos? The teams of two putting their collective necks on the live to better our lives? Here's our tribute to gaming's most under-appreciated tag teams.
6. A Boy and His Blob The Boy and his Blob
A boy. A blob. A sh*tload of jellybeans. Endless possibilities.
Anything the boy wanted, the blob delivered. You need to climb some stuff? I'm your ladder. Feed me some tangerine jellybeans, you got yourself a trampoline. Got a hankerin' to rocket off into space? It'll cost you something root beer flavored.
These two could do it all and they did it through friendship: the most powerful flavored jellybean of them all. Not to mention, I can't think of many characters that can actually complete an entire NES game in under 10 mins.

Uh, Mrs. Gunki77er?
There's no easy way to say this. Your son died in a Halo firefight last night-
Ten times, ending his game.
That that is a lot of times.

I think the Mario brothers are pretty well qualified for your plumbing company, sir.
Dr. Mario. Olympic athlete Dr. Mario.
Er, yes. It seems that your doctorate was earned via a Tetris knock-off?
Indeed it was.
Your name is Mario Mario?
The world of movies and TV have long been filled with fake videogames that only exist within the boundaries of their respective universes whether it's due to plot demands that couldn't be filled by existing games or simply trying to avoid copyright infringement. While sometimes there are games that look so incredible that the possibility of their existence would have nerds foaming at the mouth, there are also games too weird to possibly exist anywhere in the real world. Here are the 8 most bizarre fictional videogames in history.
8. Super Bario Bros. (Muppet Babies)
With a title as ambiguous as Super Bario Bros., it either sounds like a shrink-wrapped bootleg video game you'd find being sold off a filthy tarp in a New York subway thoroughfare or the name of a bodega with some spelling issues. But given what goes on in the game itself is something that could only be found in those pirated video games, we're leaning towards the former.
Super Bario Bros. is essentially what happens when please forgive the following potentially-scarring mental image of Muppet/NES game cartridge intercourse the original Donkey Kong and Gonzo had a baby without Super Mario Bros. even being aware of the infidelity going on behind its own back. In the search for an adequate analogy, we nearly forgot to mention the King Koopa knockoff that throws what look like neon green boogers instead of fireballs and hammers. There's that too.

Recently I had to bring my laptop to a shop to get repairs for the battery. When I got it back a week later, they noted that there was a extra fee for keyboard maintenance. I almost broke my keyboard from mashing the F key while using the Dowsing Rod in Psychonauts -Charlie
So, My mom has this little suction-cup-hook-thing in the shower than she keeps all her scrubby things on. And, it tends to fall down a lot. Like, once a week. It's not a very strong suction cup. Another thing I need to say is that I'm a pretty avid Minecraft fan (trust me, this will be important in a minute). So, I was getting ready for work the other day. And as I was brushing my teeth, the suction cup decided to fall. My back was turned to it when it happened, and all I heard was "ssssssssssss" and then a big crash. As soon as I heard the hiss, I bolted out of the bathroom, and the first thought that crossed my mind was "What do I have in my inventory? I'm going to lose everything!!!" Needless to say, I didn't lose any of my inventory.-Jake

When I was about 11, I hung out in my local video rental store for seven hours waiting for Chrono Trigger to come back. Eventually, they threw me out.-Matthew
One night, my roommate was playing Pokemon Yellow and he had made a lot of progress. After a while, I realized that he had fallen asleep. His Gameboy was still on and in his hand. Without waking him, I pressed start, saved, turned it off, and then put it somewhere safe. When he woke up the next morning he asked me where it was. I told him what I did and he thanked me and said I was like a caring mother.-Chris
I'm currently deployed with the Marines. I recently was able to get Internet in my berthing area and was on Skype with my fiance while playing Minecraft. I was talking about the things we have to deal with and started yelling "Sh*t sh*t sh*t!" She got really scared and said, "What's going on, are you okay?!" I said, "It's getting dark out and the monsters are coming soon."-Jim
