Here at the Console Game Examiner, we’re no strangers to showing our readers original game-sinspired artworks that tend to depict game characters in interesting new ways. Wether it be old, LEGO’d, or even with sex changes. However, one of the most popular series has alwas been of the bearded video game heroes. So we’ve decided to go from franchise to franchise and transform each of the main characters into bearded figures. What better place to start than the Mushroom Kingdom.
About the bearded art series:
As the age-range of the average video game player continues to increase, its only natural that game makers will begin to develop more mature titles as their demographic becomes more mature itself. This is not to mean that games require more blood, gore, or sexuality. Sometimes, older gamers only need a figure that they themselves can identify with.
Instead of creating entire new franchises that feature fresh, adult-themed characters; the world of gaming can just take its existing superstars and transform them into more mature figures of the industry.
