Here's an interesting little thread I remember from another forum I used to frequent. Describe some great games from history in a way that would make them sound really dull to play.

For example, here's my entry in the thread from that forum:

Genesis Sonic games: Hold right to run. Jump. Get rings and make it to the signpost. Sometimes you'll have to jump on a fatass in a car eight times.

Zelda OoT: Get sword and shield. Use them to get shiny macguffins. Get bigger sword and grow up. Get some more shiny macguffins. Save princess. You don't get the girl.

Pokemon: Navigate menus. Watch still picture sprites move. Play rock-paper-scissors to win.

Kirby: Eat. Float. Beat up a hammer-wielding penguin.


Feel free to use the same ones again. Your challenge: bore us!
