A meme is a terrible thing to waste, and GameSpot is making sure that gamers are aware of the best one to come out of this year’s E3. Seb Ford, Video Producer at GameSpot, notes that E3 is a “punching bag,” as he recalls some previous memes to arise from E3.While Ford notes the onslaught of humorous Xbox One bashing that occurred, GameSpot awarded the Best Meme of E3 2013 to The Villager (from the Animal
Crossing franchise) in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and for Nintendo 3DS.
As many have noticed, The Villager has taken then internet by storm, and many think it has to do with the clash of his sweet face and his odd placement in a fighting game. According to one Gamnesia staffer:
…because the silent innocent looking villager really is creepy as [expletive] when you really think about it and in a fighting context, he comes off as a serial killer … he’ll chop off your trees and stuff them in his pockets
Innuendos aside, the internet has fallen in love with this new meme. We at Gamnesia advise you to browse with caution, as there may be some content that is NSFW.
