Video Game Photography

So I read an article about a guy who does video game photography, and then I went and looked for better examples than what that article presented. So I checked out deadendthrills.com, and wow is this guy really freaking good at this. He's got shots from everything from Alice: Madness Returns, to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, to Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, to Super Mario Galaxy

I have to say I'm most impressed with the skill. I also read the comments section (yes, I know what was I thinking) for the article linked above, and that got me to thinking about the question of how impressed we should be, and so I thought I'd ask everyone's opinion. Below I've included a couple of the images I really liked from the website, and I'm curious how people view this type of work. Like it? Don't like it? Think it's dumb? Think it's stupid awesome, crazy, amazing?
