Sometimes even video game characters need to pay a visit to their doctor, and in the new Machinima Prime web series Dr. 1Up, we see how some of these appointments go. Characters like Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect, and more might not be quite as healthy as you believe them to be while playing their games.
Below you can read more about the series, and check out the Commander Shepard episode, which also features appearances by Dovahkiin from Skyrim and Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series.
The world’s most popular video game characters are not exactly known for leading a healthy lifestyle. Smoking, eating unhealthy, and fighting some of the nastiest “bosses” of all-time can lead to significant illnesses and injuries. Enter Dr. 1Up. The title character and star of an all-new original comedy series, Dr. 1Up is there to make sure that the stars of the gaming universe will be healthy in time for the launch of the next game in the series…or is he?
