YouTube channel, Corridor Crew, a part of studio Corridor Digital, has riled the artist community and game fans alike. The popular CG tech enthusiasts are no strangers to controversy but its latest video, where they use AI to 'fix the faces in video games', has really got fans angry.

The same team that used DALL-E2 AI to create the Rock, Paper, Scissors anime that everyone hated, is now back as its YouTube team, Corridor Crew, has taken aim at the video games industry. This time they've 'fixed' the faces that designers have created in games such as Metal Gear Solid (Big Boss), Uncharted (Nathan Drake), and Horizon: Forbidden West (Aloy). And it's created quite the backlash.
