The lights are on
There's nothing I love more than wasting time exploring the seemingly infinite offerings from YouTube and discovering hilarious videos, and some I wish I had never seen. Among these trips into the dark corners of YouTube, I enjoy checking out video game videos to see if anything catches my eye. Here is a list of ten hilarious video game songs. Some of them I can't get out of my head, and some I can't quite figure out.
TF2 Musical by The Scout
This is perhaps my all-time favorite video game song only because I am such a huge fan of both Team Fortress 2 and The Little Mermaid (you caught me). I can watch this video over and over and crack up every single time.
When I play Minecraft, the first thing I do is build a small fortress so that at night I can hide from the creepers. This video does a surprisingly impressive job of creating Minecraft Usher and mimicking his single to fit the Minecraft world.
Do You Wanna Date My Avatar?
I first really got into World of Warcraft last year when Mists of Pandaria came out, and I played a female character almost every time and not once got hit on or given free gold. I have heard differently from others, however.
Playstation Song – Eiffel 65
I didn't even know this song existed until last week, and yet it epitomizes my childhood. Plenty of videos exist for this song from Eiffel 65, but I love this video from YouTuber TriadAngelPrototype. While the song isn't truly comedic, the visuals from each named game make me laugh for the pure nostalgia of it all.
Survival Horror: A Gory Demise
You know I couldn’t leave out survival horror. Here's a song devoted to the fall of a great genre. How many games can you recognize?
Eevee Jazz Number – Pokemon
For those who have played the Pokemon games, you’ll get the references in this sexy jazz number.
It has become a running joke from the Left for Dead series to shout “Pills here!” Here’s a whole song dedicated to the phrase.
I liked Macklemore before he got famous, and even his song Thrift Shop. Game Shop is a rendition of that song dedicated to shopping for video games.
Took An Arrow In The Knee
Another song by Johnny Medlar dedicated completely to the adventurer in Skyrim and how he met this guy who took an arrow to the knee.
Sonic Gangnam Style
Being a longtime Sonic fan, I had to leave you with Sonic Gangnam Style, only because it’s Sonic and friends doing Gangnam Style! Need I say more?
AVByte on Youtube has some great musicals. They recently did an awesome version of Tomb Raider.
The guild's song was the best!!!
These are great! I liked Usher's Minecraft and Arrow in the Knee the most.
Never heard of some of these before, they're really good though. Especially liked The Eevee Song and Took an Arrow in the Knee.
do you like my sword from tobascus is my favorite
Oh lord, some of these are pretty great. I love the TF2 video the best, by far!
So this is what Sonic has been doing instead of making another good game?
I always like Dan Bull's stuff. Not only is it funny, it's really clever. Here's his Skyrim rap...
I really like the Eevee one the most.
You should have had the Smosh Zelda or Assassin's creed rap.
Terrific picks Kayla! Never knew that these existed until now either. Love the Sonic Gangam style vid.
Mega64's videos are funny as well. I especially liked the one shown at the IGF with Journey. The moment the two characters met and started jumping like crazy out of joy was an accurate depiction of my experience in Journey.
Tobuscus god of war ascension is epic too
The hat song is just too good. And anybody who plays TF2 knows how true it is.
