Video Game Characters Threaten Walkout, Demand Better Treatment

Characters from several popular video game franchises are fighting back at their creators, demanding better treatment and less exploitation.

Solid Snake, leader of the rights movement, released a statement earlier today.

"I'm not getting any younger", he explained, "and most of these characters don't actually age.  But we all have something in common - the relentless punishment of our bodies and souls.  Players put us through countless ordeals including the loss of our comrades and family, and relentless damage by choosing the wrong strategies.  This will stop, or we will walk."

The creators are planning to meet with their characters sometime today to discuss negotiations.

Meanwhile, developers are gearing up for the possibility of drastic franchise changes.

In related news, these titles are in development:

Super Somebody Galaxy 3
Uncharted 3: Somebody's Deception
Somebody and Somebody Else Future: Tools of Time
Somebody of Persia


  1. Wonderful, witty writing. Maybe the characters need to unionize.....maybe not.
