Something Awful’s Comedy Goldmine is a column that examines some of the best threads in the Something Awful forums. One of my favourites, that I discovered recently, is the collection of Choose Your Own Adventure books that never quite made it. I used to love CYOA books when I was a kid and video games weren’t so much concerned about plot as they were about making a dot on the screen look like a little pixellated stick man. But whenever I revisit them nowadays they just seem like poor attempts at roleplaying games where you die way too frequently and, in the off chance that you don’t die, the story is way too short to be interesting. Then I usually go and play some video games.
