To Play or Not To Play

Posted October 18, 2010 & filed under Notebook.

To play or not to play, that is the question.
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
the dying and losing on the same level
over and over again and the frustration
of the “Game Over” voice that comes on
when you lose all your lives, or taking
a controller, coming down and finishing it.
To restart, perchance to succeed—ah,
there’s the kick, for in that beating of the level,
what may come when we have beat
the M-rated violent level must
give us pause—there is the respect
of the cheesy graphics.
