You might have seen FaceApp on your feed lately. The app is designed with basic facial recognition features, and can change expressions, age and gender of the subject with varying degrees of success. It's basically a fancy Snapchat filter. Using it on yourself is disturbing enough, but plastering the sometimes-wonky algorithm onto video game characters has some pretty messed up results. We've toyed around with the app and posted some of our favorites down below.

If you're confused as to just what the app is supposed to be doing to the characters, check out the Emoji in the transformed picture. A smile Emoji will mean the app added a smile, a lady Emoji will mean the app is adding female features and an old man Emoji will show you a grim future for these ageless digital deities that will remind you of your own fragile mortality. Enjoy!
