What if you were sitting around with your dorky, overweight gamer friends when all of a sudden the characters from your favorite video games came to life and wreaked havoc on your hometown? Would it suck? Would it kind of be really super awesome to watch your friends be eaten by giant crabs or stomped on by Mario? The answers to these questions and more are at the center of this pretty funny 20-minute short film called Cloverbrawl from Seakitten Collective. Inspired by the film Cloverfield, the short -- which is broken up into two parts (both of which you can watch after the jump -- follows a group of friends who go from falling asleep while listening to James Cameron talk Avatar at E3 to watching their favorite video game characters destroy the world in spectacular fashion.

Sure, the graphics aren't exactly big-budgeted Hollywood-type stuff, but these folks definitely deserve some kudos for managing to fit in a whole ton of cool characters from games like Halo, Bioshock, Half Life, etc ... According to the description on YouTube, this will become episodic if enough people dig it.

Watch Cloverbrawl after the jump and let us know what you think.
