Things you learn from Video Games

Postby Laialda » Tue Jun 22, 2010 1:33 pm

Okay, so I'm sure a good portion of you all out there on the interwebs (^_^ *waves* hello) have seen the shirt that lists the things you learn form video games. I have owned one for many years now and since I know it's bound to wear out soon, I decided to convert it into a cross-stitch pattern....but with a few changes. Only about half of the phrases on there really made me chuckle and I felt it could use an update to include some newer games (as well as copyright references that I'm sure they couldn't use before) So, here's what I have so far: (Sorry for the large image)

Thing You Learn...2.sth
(54.5 KiB) Downloaded 307 times

Down-loadable for your convenience

Obviously it's been personalized a bit, but the main reason I'm posting all of this is to get some suggestions. I'd like to add another line or two on to this and then place some iconic characters around the edges (instead of just space invaders like on the shirt). All ideas are welcome, but I'm mainly looking for ones that aren't connected to what's already there if possible. Thanks in advanced! ^_^ :grin:

*UPDATE*
Pattern has been updated to include final line and a dash of sprites. :)

Love it! Could you post the pattern in pdf? Since I'm on a mac, those stitching programs don't like me...

I'm glad you like it so far. I picture it being much more awesome when it's finished of course ^_^

Here's your pdf version. It was...interesting to make. o.o

Love it! I'm gonna have to add this to my 'to do' list once you've perfected the pattern =D. As for suggestions... I'd say just some classic game sprites, Mario, Zelda etc

Great pattern!


Found this on another web site:

It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s when you saved the game.
I think so, Brain, but can the gummi worms really live in peace with the marshmallow chicks?
I think so, Brain, but if they called them "sad meals" nobody would buy them.

So I'm going to cheat a little and provide a couple of websites I found on it:

my mate Ross came up with this one:
