Still More Gaming Haiku From GI's Poet Prodigy

by Jeff Cork on Dec 26, 2015 at 06:00 AM

Why, hello there. During the holidays, I like to retire to my den and reflect on the games that I've recently played. Afterward, I put my thoughts down on fine parchment, in the form of haiku. From there, I transcribe the stuff and put it on a website. Yes, it's that time again: Here are the last 10 games I've played, in glorious haiku.

I've been doing this for a while now. Don't ask why. You can read all my previous entries here, here, herehere, and here. And from the bottom of my heart, you're welcome.

Oh, Father Gascoigne,
The hype was real – you're awful
I liked your hat though

What is a human?
This game really makes you think:
Did it need monsters?

EDF 4.1
Ants! Go back to space!
It was great when it was called

Just Cause 3
Grapple, wingsuit, crash
Once you get the hang of it
You won't drive again

Oops, I killed a guy
No pacifist ending now?
How 'bout I don't play?

Tales from the Borderlands
Mash on X, hit right
This guy will remember that
They did it again.

Until Dawn
Stuck in a cabin
with a bunch of teenagers?
Please take me out first.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate
What's that? Syndicate?
Why the sudden interest
in that Bullfrog game?!

Minecraft: Story Mode
Mash on X, hit right
This guy will remember that
They did it again.

Life is Strange
I can time travel?
Lincoln? Hitler? Kennedy?
Or find five bottles.
