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.
