Super Karamazov Brothers

Filed under: Random — The Elitist @ 3:19 pm

In a vain attempt to get kids to read, authors are now writing their books with an aim at making them into video games. Some games even require the player to know the book in order to answer questions. Schools and libraries are even getting into the action. However, this new trend will either lead to worthless books, or boring video games. Super Mario Brothers was a good game, but a terrible movie, and a waste of paper if it were to be a book. Similarly, how much fun could Great Expectations possibly be on the Wii? And think of the legal ramifications if they tried to merge Leisure Suit Larry with Lolita. Disaster.
