Except Chuck Norris is you know...a real person lol

Godmars2902493d ago

Who got his fame and rep in front of a camera.

Had to be said, just like at some point kids find out the truth about Santa Claus.

fluffydelusions2493d ago (Edited 2493d ago )

But you do know Chuck Norris does know a thing or two right? E.g. take for instance this which happened long before he was well known:

"On November 24, 1968, he avenged his defeat to Delgado and by doing so won the Professional Middleweight Karate champion title, which he held for six consecutive years.[8] In 1969, he won Karate's triple crown for the most tournament wins of the year, and the Fighter of the Year award by Black Belt Magazine. "

I'm not gonna lie, after doing some bouldering you realize how hard it is to climb like that. Altair/Ezio/Nathan Drake and etc are pretty superhuman when it comes to all the things they do.

Except, you know, their tears can't cure cancer.

Gordo7892493d ago

yeah for real, they must have some incredible hand/forearm strength. Climbing is HARD.

Godmars2902493d ago

And then you've got that kid from Shadow of the Colossus who can only climb and hang on to moving/living mountains - which he eventually kills - for only a few minutes. If he doesn't get a few seconds of rest that is.

No. Nothing Chuck Norris-issy about him...

JamestheScruffy2493d ago

I think the better question is, why the HELL hasn't their been a Chuck Norris video game developed yet!?

LOGICWINS2493d ago

What the hell would be the point of that? Your console would explode as soon as you put the disk in.

BigBoss19642493d ago

There is it's called God of War =P

People seriously don't understand that the Chuck Norris jokes were meant to be ironic? I thought they were just there for the sake of him a relatively obscure and not very talked about celebrity around the time the jokes started? Or it was because of his beard or his name or just the way he looks.

Besides, Bruce Lee was stronger anyway. I thought the whole purpose of the jokes were to puff up a figure who is otherwise pretty much just a has been 2nd rate martial artist anyway.

Just my take on it.

Actually, I know the real reason the Chuck Norris jokes started. I'd say it was probably his random cameo on the movie Dodgeball that inspired this. Before that, the only time you could see Chuck Norris on TV was after 3 am on an infomercial selling his workout equipment with the man-faced Christy Brinkley.

fluffydelusions2493d ago

"Bruce Lee was stronger anyway"

Bruce Lee could pretty much destroy anyone even today so that isn't a very good argument :)

LOGICWINS2493d ago

Ummm...no. Martial arts has advanced ten fold since Lee died. If we were to take a time machine, bring back Bruce Lee, and give him a week to train for a fight with any top-tier MMA fighter...Lee would lose, probably by knockout.

But eventually he would learn today's advanced fighting techniques(american wrestling, jujitsu, different variations of chokes, using the cage to your advantage) and kick everyones ass.

D3mons0ul2493d ago (Edited 2493d ago )

I don't think so Tim

Mikefizzled2493d ago

Don't want to crush your dreams but Bruce Lees fight scenes was sped up. And I nearly cried when I found out.

ronin4life2493d ago (Edited 2493d ago )

Bruce lee was an actual martial artist and fighter. Mma is an organized sport. (I know they are mixed martial artists, but they learn to fight in order to compete in competition, which is quite different than actual fighting. ) . And if they tried a grapple, bruce would either:
Break their arms
One inch punch them, which had the capacity to kill people.

LOGICWINS2493d ago

"Bruce lee was an actual martial artist and fighter. Mma is an organized sport. (I know they are mixed martial artists, but they learn to fight in order to compete in competition, which is quite different than actual fighting. )"

What you just said makes no sense whatsoever.

skrug2493d ago

@Mikefizzled

It was actually slowed down... he moved so fast for the cameras at that time, that they had to slow it down

NukaCola2493d ago

Logic,

Why cant you understand anything other people say? They are telling you Bruce Lee is a real martial artist. Watch his documentaries on when he started acting. Look at the orignal bar scene in Green Hornet where Bruce lead broke the railing and kicked the crap out of everyone. He is a weapon unlike anyone else. I watch tons of classic martial art films and documentaries, I have scene Lee do a four inch punch on a guy, breaking his ribs and knocking him back 12 feet. Bruce Lee is a royal badass and he has profected his acting stunts through his career, but the man was nothing to mess with in a real fight. He would easily defeat any MMA guy today, who trains in a safe grappling way. Lee would kick a guy in the through and crush his throat. He was a truly proficent fighter.

On Topic: I wouldn't consider Chuck to be the most manliest guy around first of. And as game character Nathan Drake is a cool dude. Has youth without being a whiny emo idiot, and he has the Indian Jones charm that guys and girls can like.

papashango2492d ago

Actually mma wouldnt be what it is today if bruce lee were alive. Lees one inch punch during a ground grapple would be every promoters worse nightmare.
