A sinister night has descended upon an innocent town. A large, white moon provides a touch of light and beauty. Then the camera reveals two zombies standing peacefully on a plain black road with a bright yellow line. The zombies are surrounded by trees that seem even darker than the road’s asphalt. Nothing else is visible. There is no escape.
Zombie 1: “Hey Fred, how long you been out here?”
Zombie 2 takes his cigarette out of his mouth and turns around. One of his eye balls is hanging by a thread.
Zombie 2: “Ha! Too long, Sam; this new guy is terrible.”
Zombie 1: “Yeah, I’ve heard things: I heard he once got lost at the start menu.”
Zombie 2: “You heard right. You know, I saw him wandering around in circles for 30 minutes. I just shook my nearly hollow and decomposing head. Then I had to stop and have a smoke to settle my nerves.”
Zombie 1: “Man, they sure don’t make gamers like they used to.”
Zombie 2: “You’re right about that my friend. You’re right about that.”
Zombie 1: “Hey, so, did I tell you my son is getting married?”
Zombie 2: “Wow! That is great news. Little Jimmy is all grown up, huh?”
Zombie 1: “Yeah, yeah and it feels like it was only yesterday when his mother and I watched him eat his first brains. We’re so proud. Now Sarah and I are thinking about retiring. I mean we paid off the mortgage and…”
Zombie 2: “Look! Here he comes. Act stupid.”
Zombie 1 and 2: [Snarling] “Grrrrrrrr Brains!”
Player 1 ran in to a tree and appeared on screen. He looked up and then down and couldn’t walk in a straight line.
Zombie 1 and 2: [Sighs].
Zombie 1: “This is going to be a long night.”
Fred shakes his head and Sam facepalms himself.

It is amusing to think about virtual creations doing what they do as part of a job. Like in an alternate reality (say if we utilize the multiverse theory) people are employed as the AI in our games. And that’s not even getting into the theories that we are all just constructs in a massive simulation either. Still, all pretty funny. 🙂

Ah, cool, thanks for bringing these other theories to my attention.
