I’d hate to star in my own video game, Chased by monsters and bullets and warriors; Forever avoiding eternal androiding While battling evil destroyers.

No, I wouldn’t like being in a video game Unless it was faster and shorter. Because just when you think it’s all over, kaplink, Someone drops in another quarter.
