Justin and Griffin McElroy run a Youtube show for Polygon where the brothers take the video game character creators as far as possible, making bizarre player characters in various video games. After coming up with an odd character, the brothers will play the game with their disturbing player character. Often mods are used to further break down the game for purposes of enjoyment.

Each video game destroyed often takes several episodes for the brothers to fully explore, and develops its own lore around the player character.


The most popular run explores Fallout 4 through extensive, game-breaking modding, with a player character dubbed Final Pam.
