A Blank Poem


Hey there Destructoid, it's been a while since I've written anything because I've been sick (and busy with "important" work), but I thought I'd try something different today. Here is different:

Let me tell you the tale of a man most ordinary,
The contents of which, is decidedly varied,
He may have a dark past, a family divided,
We just announced the game though, so we haven�t decided.

We�ll start with his name; our man is called �Blank�,
(The publisher wanted it, we thought it was wank),
White, American, dashing and handsome,
I know what you�re thinking; �just like Ted Danson�.

His story is one of tragedy and woe,
But none of that mushy stuff, that had to go,
Who said emotion isn�t about explosions and guns,
Or the lingering close-ups on Blank�s camouflaged buns?

Most of the story will be exposition,
A dark past revealed (it�s just a tradition!)
But still you�ll be in for heroics and glory,
Although the game is just a shitty origin story.

It wouldn�t be a story without a female character too,
(Although it�s not as though the box art will be big enough for two)
She might even be playable, if that�s the way you play,
Just so long as she doesn�t kiss Blank; that would just be gay.

Silly me, I forgot to give our pair of breasts a name!
It�s as if you really wanted her in our macho, manly game,
�Cherry LeBoobs� will be her name, for simplicity�s sake,
(Her in game role is to pout her lips, and give her arse a shake).

Between you and me though, I�m starting to get scared,
In playtests with women, poorly, our game fared,
These women wanted a more �well rounded girl�,
So we made her breasts rounder, and re-named her Pearl.

Still the game�s biggest draw is definitely Blank,
Especially when he wisecracks a bit, before blowing up a tank,
His story might seem barebones; perhaps a wee bit vague,
We were really bad with dialogue (we avoid it like the plague).

With audience appeal this broad, we�re bound to sell well.
(Lest our publisher eats our genitals, down in gaming hell)
The Blank Slate: Origins, Game of the Year!
With an intensive DLC plan, never you fear.

A game for guys, a game for bros!
We haven�t seen enough of those!
This game�s so full of in your face machismo,
The girls will probably hate it but we think you�ll be pleased though.

I am Liam, an English and Media student. I run a blog called The Vocal Protagonist with a friend of mine: https://thevocalprotagonist.tumblr.com/

My favourite games are RPG's, Puzzle Platformers and anything with an engrossing, engaging world or narrative. No brand loyalty here, but my favourite system is probably the good ol' Playstation 2.
