Video game characters are always getting stabbed, burned, blasted, electrocuted, and crushed—when they aren't falling to their dooms. So they're perfect for this macabre poem in the style of Edward Gorey's The Gashlycrumb Tinies.

The Game Over Tinies is the work of the folks behind the webcomic Brentalfloss. You can see the full alphabet of death at the Brentalfloss website or grab the poster so you can relieve these game overs whenever you look at your wall.
