HAPPY BIRTHDAY TEAM FORTRESS! ... Your videos are awesome!

 Team Fortress turned 15 this past week.  Team Fortress is a team- and class-based online multiplayer video game mod based on id Software's Quake. Team Fortress was designed and written by Robin Walker, John Cook and Ian Caughley in 1996.  The mod's gameplay has caught on with a large following of fans... which spawned the much beloved, hysterical, senselessly, cartoon violent animated shorts:

Meet the Team Animated Shorts:
 TF2 started with nine mercenaries, each with his own distinct personality. Because they live inside a frantic multiplayer shooter, though, the only facets of those personalities people got to see were the screaming, shooting, and being-on-fire parts. Enter the Meet the Team shorts, showcasing the mercs in their off-hours—arguing with their parents, barking orders at their head collections, or just strumming a guitar by the campfire... Also they made a movie about a sandwich.

  Click the players, and enjoy the videos:
