Auto Cannibalism Is Not The Answer

GamingLives remembers a game in which you could attempt to eat your own face and wonders why you just don't have those sort of freedoms anymore.

"I only even heard about Zork in my early teens, when I discovered the video game poet, now drunken piano player, Seth “Fingers” Flynn Barkan and his superb book of poems, “Blue Wizard Is About To Die”. One of the appendices included in the book is a transcript of Barkan while playing Zork, desperately trying everything he can think of to survive after his lamp runs out and the game informs him of his inevitable wandering into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue. He attempts to touch the grue, eat the grue, and even take the grue, and each time the game throws back a humorous retort." (Crackdown, Culture, Hitman: Absolution, Zork)
