Video Games That Are Awkward To Play In Public

For most portable video games, you're not being particularly brave when you play them out in meatspace. The button-pressing and D-pad-pushing is fairly surreptitious in the vast majority of on-the-go titles; you can play without making too much of a spectacle of yourself.

To be clear, this isn't a Mega evolved version of Bidoof, although it should be. It's just a meme that was created by That Splicing Adventure; Bidoof mashed with every (other?) legendary in the Pokemon games. Glorious, yes, but probably not something Game Freak would ever make a reality. Unfortunately! » 8/09/13 8:00pm 8/09/13 8:00pm
