Penny Arcade is the video game webcomic, the one who set the rules for everyone else to poorly knock-off. They’re comic is geek through and through, sometimes from a more casual old man perspective, and when they’re on point a fully informed old school gamer perspective.
Penny Arcade is usually reliable for a great E3 summation, though they let us down this year inexplicably, perhaps appropriately given the limp presentations from the big 3′s conferences.
Penny Arcade’s art is ever evolving, and always top notch, even if they currently have some jacked up hand thing going on.
PA’s community is second to none, and in fact has become more of a focus than the comic itself at this point, which is cool for them, but there’s reason to fear them losing the passion for the core that they birthed everything else from.
Life with Lamarr is a comic made with Garry’s Mod, featuring parody versions of the popular cast of Half-Life 2, as well as some outlandish original creations. Now just into its second year and over 200 updates, this ongoing twisted sitcom keeps chugging along with its internet and pop culture jokes, evil pigeons, foul-mouthed cacti and the eternal love of a man for his headcrab.
A family friendly video game webcomic focused on Nintendo characters, mostly those who have appeared in the Smash Bros. series. Often very funny if you know the subject material, sometimes a little too cute, but regularly a good joke to be found.
Brawl in the Family has a simple very soft art style, usually monotone, sometimes color, but always pretty expressive characters.
The notorious furry video game webcomic VG cats, is primarily known for having metric shit tons of panels for nearly every strip. Often exploiting your nostalgia for old video games with rehashes of observations everyone already made 15 years earlier, made slightly more off-putting by the fetishistic furry character designs.
Putting all complaints aside for the moment, VG Cats can still manage to hit with a legitimately funny strip every once in awhile, and that’s more than enough to keep this comic alive.
