The Three Most Ridiculous Olympic-Themed Video Games

The Olympics are happening. They've been happening for a long time, but thanks to awesome new innovations in technology we get to collectively laugh at hilarious inadvertently embarrassing things people do when they're competing in the sports equivalent of The Final Countdown.

We also get to play video games based on their exploits.

While once the Olympic Games were limited to Grecian city-state representatives that could speak Greek, now gamers are gifted with the opportunity to boil something that takes a lifetime to achieve down to some button-mashing minigames. Sometimes we even get to play as Sonic or Mario and compete against eachother in the iconic competition.
