Default Video games and near death experiences

Video games can be annoying. See, whenever I play them I keep getting these near death experiences followed by right-on-the-money death experiences and then keep reincarnating trying to get past a level over and over again, while in real life its just like I keep living and I had a couple near death experiences, but not quite a right-on-the-money experience. It's like video games are representations of worlds-below and the characters think they're conscious and have free will but they actually just keep getting killed by me.

Video games have always modeled reality, and death is no exception.

To end all debate, this is what you see when you die:
<tt>
+-----------------------------------+
|Oops, you fucked that up.

|>Continue
| New Game+

When I die, I want to see this:

You smite Floating Eye. You can't move! You get bit by Newt. You get bit by Newt. You get bit by Newt. You get bit by Newt. You get bit by Newt. You get bit by Newt. You get bit by Newt. You get bit by Newt. You get bit by Newt. You died...Identify Possesions? Y/N _

No, no, no! That is the most Asperger's Syndrome idea of the afterlife I have ever heard! Do not smite the floating eye, the floating eye is your chance to free your perception of the three-dimensional matrix. The newt is simply a representation of the reptilian tendencies from the lower brain that took over human biology and fucked up the reality creation capabilities of the human brain so that it confuses itself and destroys itself and others by forming an inaccurate mental image of reality (and then creates a reality where it observes itself and thinks that its the other way around!)

This begs the question of where the Wizard of Yendor comes in.
