What could possibly make the batter bolt off into the night? Does the catcher chasing him have a knife? Did he see the love of his life up in the right field stands, waving and calling his name, having changed her mind about moving to Europe, because this is not a video game but rather the ending to a romantic comedy that's probably titled something like Cupid Throws a Curve?
But it's not over -- the opposing team's shortstop, for whatever reason, decides that he's not going to put up with that shit. He goes streaking off after the rogue batter, and is also apparently The Flash:

"My name is Zach Cozart and I'm the glitchiest man alive."
Maybe he's the other man in this love triangle? Maybe they're going to have a fight to win the girl's heart? Meanwhile, the other players can only stand and watch, along with the dead-eyed spectators in the half-filled stadium.

At least that last part is realistic.
Watch Dogs -- Everything is Broken
Some say Watch Dogs is just Grand Theft Auto with a hacking gimmick. But what it is instead is a dystopian future in which hacking has gotten so out of control that the fabric of reality itself has been "hacked." Watch while our hacker hacks a steam vent while his sports car is parked over it:
"It's a bullshit system. I know this."
Yes! Our favorite part is where he jumps out and kind of lounges among the clouds for a moment. What exactly did this hack accomplish? Only a hacker would understand, motherfucker. Sometimes a hack is its own reward -- why else would a man hack his way right through the street itself:
"Top that, taxi guy!"
Check it out! In an instant, the pavement is gone and you are plunged into a watery underworld that only hackers know exists. Your natural survival instincts kicking in, you swim for safety, only to find that safety is actually Limbo, the endless void between life and death:
Hello darkness, my old friend
I think I've broke the game again
Once there, you have two choices: either wait it out for the next 50,000 years until the God of Hackers decides to admit you into His Kingdom, or hit reset while swearing like a heathen. Oh, look, here's a passing truck. For a normal man, there are numerous ways to stop that vehicle. For a hacker, it's time to hack your skull right into his rear tire. Check out my ragdoll physics, bitch!
"Oh my, how mildly uncomfortable."
That's right -- you totally survive that, even though your cranium was jarred loose by a vicious impact from another speeding vehicle. That's because the world of video games is a magical place where anything is possible. Consider this: in the future, when they've jacked all of our brains into a virtual computer-generated world, everyday life will look just like that.
