The punishments may seem extreme but they're also very funny, which in our book makes them the perfect system of justice. Consider these seven of the most memorable.

Videogames are much like magicians in that they use skill, technology and misdirection to trick people into thinking that what they're seeing is real, and to hide the mechanics of how everything works. But where a magician's tricks are about spectacle, videogame tricks can be subtler, using camera angles, animations, the environment and game systems to manipulate the player.
