By Kyle Campbell (GLHF)

You don’t need an eye for fashion to appreciate how amusing all of the memes surrounding The Met Gala are, yet no crowd has had fun with it like gamers. From simple, snarky quips about how many of the Gala’s guests look like a certain Kingdom Hearts protagonist to full-blown edits of Final FantasyMetal Gear Solid, and Animal Crossing characters appearing on the red carpet — folks are having fun with this meme. 

It wasn’t long before all of this went viral, and soon hundreds of Photoshop savants began, well, adding their favorite characters to the event! From obvious choices like Aerith Gainsborough from Final Fantasy VII to more obscure name-drops like Yakuza’s Kazuma Kiryu. 

So, why don’t we look at some of the more hilarious, and dare I say, outrageous edits made for The Met Gala: Video Game Edition. If you happen to be unfamiliar with any of the characters below, worry not: each section lists which series they’re from!
