    Some people really have big imaginations... But it was sad and creepy.

    I haven't read it yet but, where did you get it from? Shouldn't the writer get credit?

    ♫ I read the first sentence. ♫

    That being so, I skipped, the rest.
    Anyway I have to name
    The title.

    Lit'rature reference.
    I'll link what I must,
    because, I can.

    ♫ For the good of all of us, except the ones who have read

    Edit: OK, read some of the rest... Honestly, I wouldn't bother with this one. The original story is dark enough that I don't find it very funny as a parody.

    Ah, I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. I played that game 4 or 5 years ago. Some seriously screwed up shit, but really good at the same time. Reminds me a lot of Johnny Got His Gun which is not a book I'd recommend to anyone who doesn't want to be depressed for a few weeks.

    For those who doesn't know I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream is the short story this is based on.

    It's not a very good parody, it seems to me the writer just changed the names and little else, I dunno.

    Sounds like the shovel did it's fair share of decapping.

    The whole thing with the heavy and the medic was weird and a little bit immature.

    I only really had to read the first two paragraphs to know what this was based on. All I have to say is I hate the original, so I can't say an homage to it brings me any delight.

    I like the concept of the original, but the story is seriously screwed up. The game, while disturbing beyond belief, was good though. But yeah, it's certainly not for everyone and anyone who truly ENJOYS it is pretty wrong in the head.

    Does this take the actual text of the story and change it, or the premise of the story?

    And Laughing Man, do you realize you have swastikas in your avatar D:

    Mmmm, wondered how long it would take. They're Manjis. Read Blade of the Immortal.

    It takes the text, I believe, and just changes the names of various things. Although, I'm not sure, didn't actually read the whole thing.
