Shoot People in the Face at Close Range!

First person shooter games are a dime a dozen these days, but they're all chock full of things like "strategy" and "objectives." If you've ever wanted to strip a FPS down to its core, The Onion has officially answered your prayers with "Close Range."

Hot New Video Game Consists Solely Of Shooting People Point-Blank In The Face

Not content to simply joke about this too-good-to-be true gaming experience, the brilliant crew at the Onion have actually gone through the trouble of making a playable version of "Close Range." "Gears of War," this is not, but shooting people in the face at point blank range satisfies some sort of carnal urge that can't be denied. That, and it's pretty goddamn funny. So, if you're trying to blow off some steam and cranial pieces at the same time or just trying to warm up your space bar, go play yourself some "Close Range"
