What if a Video Game Final Boss Was Your Boss?

It might seem like a dream job at first. “Yay! I’m in the video game industry because I work for a final boss,” you might think. “I’ll get to play video games all day,” you might expect. Wrong!

You will be making coffee runs for a hideous fire-breathing monster, also known as Bowser, who smells like burnt rubber. You won’t have to think about video games when you do that. You will make many sacrifices.

Yes, you will have marathon sessions that last all day and night, but you won’t playing any games. Instead, you’ll play the role of a pawn who does the boss’s bidding during those hours. You’ll probably find yourself fighting your favourite heroes because the boss says so.

Welcome to the “real world” of video games. Don’t let the boss chew you up and spit you out.

  1. Some of my former bosses are more wicked than any end of level guardian.

  2. It might depend on which version of Bowser to do errands for. Working for early Bowser Bosses would entail working in old castle, while working for later Bowser Bosses would allow spending days in interesting locations with good views.
    What would be the carer progression?
