Anyone who thinks videogames are for kids will have to think again after seeing these graphic PS2 spots from South Africa. In one, a soldier is shot down and left in the field (shades of Sgt. Elias in Platoon), while in another a samurai is felled by a blow to the neck. As each dies in the mud, he morphs into a young adult, out of breath and exhilarated. Unlikely but brilliant music make them must-sees.
