We Turned These Gaming Character’s Frowns Upside Down

These days there’s an app for everything, and a new contender called FaceApp has stepped boldly into the arena to gobble up hours of our time.

Naturally, we’re intrepid and fearless journalists here at UNILAD, so we’ve ran a few of gaming’s most famous faces through the face-altering app to see what happens. I’ll be waiting by the phone for my Pulitzer.

You’ve seen smiling Kratos above, but check him out as an 80’s popstar…

How about a cheeky grinning Nathan Drake?

When you know which dialogue option leads to sex…

Old man Joel…

Pre-infection/Underwear model Jack Baker…

Jesus, no wonder Link doesn’t smile much…

Before and after the photographer called Venom Snake beautiful…

Let’s all agree that ‘hot’ Heihachi is a good place to end this…

So, what have we learned today? If nothing else, I think that there’s a damn good reason a lot of video game characters don’t smile often, because it looks fucking terrifying.
