Life is Like Buying a Video Game and Finding, Upon Opening the Case, that the Disk is not Inside

“Life is like a bad video game.”

“There’s no tutorial.”

“It takes a while to figure out, and you never get it completely.”

“A lot of it feels more like work than a game.”

“The balancing is out-of-whack.”

“The graphics are meh.”

“The plot makes no sense…”

“Then, game over.”

“The computer’s frozen, again!”

“What were you doing this time?”

“Not my fault, this time.”

“Well, what were you doing?”

“Just playing a game…”

“How long have you been playing?”

“Four hours.”

“Gotta run the defrost cycle every two hours, or this happens.  Now just wait until it thaws out.”

The Game

You are in a featureless room, where the walls, floor and ceiling are white. There is light in the room, but you can’t figure out where it’s coming from. You are facing North.

>Look down

You look down. Hey, you can’t see your body! You’re dead! You win! Congratulations!
