Lamest ways to die in a video game

Don’t even dip your toes in the water in Halo

You’ve heard of Halo. We’ve all heard of Halo. It’s an insanely popular first-person shooter that you pretty much can’t escape hearing about at this point. You play a biochemically and cybernetically enhanced supersoldier fighting a species of oppressive theocratic aliens, but that requires plot and we just care about killing things and hopefully not getting shot while dipping our crotches in the face of people we killed.

Yeah, that. Water kicks your soldiers’ booty worse than it does Mario’s. With all this fancy augmentation, it’s startling how even getting ankle-deep in water kills you dead. Maybe stuff a couple of floaties in that armor or something?
