While I am guilty of more than one of these videogaming facial expressions...

...I have never -- not even once! -- uttered the phrase, "Come back here and let me stab you!"

This video is called "Immersion," by New York Times photographer Robbie Cooper, and it captures several young people as they play a variety of video games, exhibiting a variety of facial expressions from "horrified" to "gleeful" to "Ted Bundy in Training." It's actually pretty compelling -- though often difficult -- to watch.

Now, putting aside our feelings about video games and their Violence and/or Sexuality Quotient, think about this: What facial expressions would be captured if there were a camera behind your TV screen?
