If Life Had Video Game Rules

I was in my office today, and I suddenly had the strange and random thought….what if my life was like a video game? (Office simulator 2000? They probably already have that.)

Here are some things that would probably happen (and be okay) If my life ran with video game rules.

Granted, I am mixing together a whole bunch of video game mechanics, and physics from different engines. But, here’s what I came up with.

-Drive to work. Crash into everything, miraculously, car is okay. Also hit 5 people. Short police chase, but they soon forget about me after I hide under a bridge for 10 minutes.

-Get in random fight with coworker. Because why not? They will forget and be my friend again as soon as it is over.

-Why is person blocking the doorway???  I CANNOT GET OUT.

-Running everywhere. Must kick open all the doors.

-I can somehow carry 20 items, even though I am just wearing a blouse and skirt. Where am I carrying these?

-Every time I see something interesting in someone’s bag or on their desk I will steal it.

-If I don’t want something anymore, I’ll just throw it on the floor.

-Okay to walk into any room at any time.

-Jump and squat and jump and squat. Now, emote.

-Break open anything that looks fragile. It may have loot.

-And of course, leave in the middle of any conversation or any job.

-Also totally ok to steal peoples cars to get out of there.

 Did I miss any? What other things happen in a video game that would be uncomfortable in real life?

  1. For some reason, I always think of Halo with this conversation. I like to squat down, pretend like I’m mashing into a corner, and then run to a spot and jump on a specific mark (like a tile), and then wish I could super-jump after.

    Or just everything Pokemon. Like the Smosh video where real people challenge you after walking in their line of sight.

  2. I would one hundred percent abuse the “save and reload” feature. Go to a casino with all my money, save the game. Bet it all, and if I don’t land the jackpot, reload from the last save point. Whenever I actually gain money, save again. Repeat until filthy rich. That’s how I afford everything in Dragon Quest!
