Video: Seven video game scientists who should have known better

Science friction with Outside Xbox.

Through systematic study, experiment and observation, scientists seek a greater understanding of the world for the betterment of mankind. Someone should probably tell that to scientists in video games, though, because they all seem to be intent on creating supermonsters, hands that shoot bees and exploding murder robots.

We've gathered some of the worst offenders together in the video below, including the Vault-Tec scientists from Fallout, Dr. Yi Suchong from BioShock, and pretty much everyone who's ever worked at the Umbrella Corporation. These are the video game scientists more deserving of a Darwin Award than a Nobel Prize.

Any suggestions of your own that we missed? Drop us a note in the comments!
