QBERT AND THE SPIRAL OF EXISTENTIAL DREAD

Share

【TO EXIST IS TO BE NOTHING MORE THAN THE CHAOS THAT DWELLS WITHIN OUR UNHOLY SOULS.


ARE YOU REALLY EXISTING?


ARE YOU TRULY LIVING?】


--


...TFW you have that one friend that just pulls the silliness out of you, every conversation is just chaotic with silliness, jokes and scenarios galore, and then all of a sudden Qbert is a nihilistic existentialist game while Qbert himself is a personification of what a cry for help looks like.


TO BE FAIR, if you watch the PS1 intro for it, it GETS PRETTY INTENSE.


UPDATE: its only been on the site for like 5 minutes and already frontpaged XD THANK YOU NG!!

Didn't play much of Qbert, if any at all. Would've been pretty neat if there were more interest in the series by developing a new game or rerelease the old games in a collection pack.

Ruedefaux responds:

Hahaha its one of those games you kinda see in passing, kinda like pacman. I dont figure a lot of people are the most familiar with it sometimes XD

the best part about this piece is how it has the tag "existentialism"; which really if you think about it qbert himself is trapped inside the void forever doomed to hopping on blocks and purple snakes want some of that dank nose action. it really makes you wonder how qbert keeps himself together in these times of need, does he have family? friends? aspirations? life goals? what does he fight for in existance? what the fuck even is a qbert? this piece tries to answer these questions.

Ruedefaux responds:

see? it really IS the most existentialist game of all time that asks all the hardhitting but important questions.

Really good

Can he play TAPS on that face nozzel?

Ruedefaux responds:

i dunno, maybe? :O

Like a malkavian would say in the game "vampire: the masquerade bloodlines" you are as crazy as the one I see in the mirror, and I just fu**in' love it!

Ruedefaux responds:

Aww, my friend who helped inspire this silly piece of art actually loves that game XD
I haven't played it, but I've definitely heard good things, so maybe I should add it onto my list of things to do... After I'm finished Silent Hill XD

Thank you!
