The joke lies in the, "Less stressful" part. Meaning he quit being an engineer to become a plumber.
User avatar #17 to #13 - ravertoby (02/16/2013) [-]
But being an engineer wasn't stressful. Him being the marker killer was.
And even if he went from an engineer to plumber, he would still have the necromorph problems. It isn't like man kind won't make another marker to try and gather the energy they pull in.

It's a joke get a ******* grip you utter tool.
User avatar #19 to #18 - ravertoby (02/16/2013) [-]
Me a tool? Last time I checked I had and have the balls to not post anonymous.

And another thing, just because I am telling someone what is proper in the actual game's story line doesn't mean I lost my grip as you so implied.

Think before you speak.

No... You were being a tool. You broke the joke apart and started analyzing like what he said was canon to the storyline.

the joke doesnt make any sense anyways
User avatar #23 to #21 - ravertoby (02/16/2013) [-]
Still not being a tool, I was never being used.
Honestly, by how you put it, calling me an asshole or dick would have fit better.

They should make a Dead Space prequel, Dead Sea, where they're underwater. Think about it, submarines, undersea labs, dive suits, giant squid, shark, whale, pirahna, and starfish necromorphs, with a harpoon gun(s) or a welding torch as weapons.

This is why Isaac is such a badass to me, and one of my favorite video game heroes of all time. He was an ordinary man, forced into an extraordinary position, and used only his wits, and maybe a small token of luck to beat impossible odds.

ordinary man, went on vacation, and so on

*ordinary douche xD

oh come Jason is a cool guy
User avatar #28 to #27 - aerius (02/16/2013) [-]
his whole deal was that he and his friends are childish spoilt idiots forced to grow up by the circumstances they're thrown into.
User avatar #40 to #28 - thadin (02/16/2013) [-]
That's a bad thing?
I'm guessing he changed through the game, and became less of a douche.
#10 to #7 - krasnogvardiech (02/16/2013) [-]
Like this guy?
User avatar #47 to #10 - spoogle (02/17/2013) [-]
Well, Gordon was a super genius. Isaac was just an average joe.

You mean like 50% of video game protagonists?
User avatar #32 to #12 - trimageryan (02/16/2013) [-]
Not true, most protagonists are hardened ex-marines, current marines, SWAT, demi-gods, superheros, etc.

There are a few that are averages joes though (Gordon Freeman, the guy from Far Cry 3...That's all I can think of at the moment)
User avatar #48 to #32 - superflystickman (02/17/2013) [-]
Actually, outside of the shooter world, most aren't. Even some superheros were just normal guys(Cole MacGraff anyone?) thrust in crazy situations. Kratos was a soldier, yes, but he was also just a mortal(later revealed to be a demigod but the devs weren't sure on that one when they made GoW1) and managed to overthrow the cosmic authority with nothing more than sheer force of will. Any Valve protagonist fits this description. Any GTA protagonist. Any Bethesda protagonist(possible exceptioin:Dovakhiin, but the Thuum is usually just a powered up magic spell and all Elder Scrolls characters can magic so that hardly counts). The Bioshock guy. Any non-RE zombie game protagonist. Lara Croft in the new game. Do I need to continue? This is used so often because it does so much more than making the characters easy to relate to, it outright forces us to empathize, and it works incredibly well.

Alan Wake, I am Alive, like any zombie game ever.

Resident evil doesn't count for those who were going to post it. Cop, soldier, more soldiers, and some biker chick who's bro is a soldier.

Well, not all zombie games sorry, but a lot.

You became the wrong kind of plumber OP.

I don't get this. Isaac's an engineer. What's the joke?
User avatar #6 to #2 - thepyras (02/16/2013) [-]
I think the joke is that he switched from being an engineer to being a plumber and thus is in a flooded basement, but there are still necromorphs there so it isn't any less stressful. OP doesn't quite understand how this meme is used.

Isaac is an engineer. Not a plumber.

That's the joke. He became a plummer because being an engineer was too stressful...
