Nice choice on Super Mario RPG. Thought it was an interesting place to put it too.

List fails without mentioning the Poetry Key from Interstate '76.

Hey Stampede, how about a poem ...

Lyrics from the Opera in FFVI isn't considered a poem?

...guess not.

Zergling Creed by thecpt

Hatched from my egg.
I am alive.
I will fight for my mother.
I will defend the hive.

I will evolve
To advance my kind
I will obey
our glorious overmind

The Terran know
There will be a storm
I am one of many
They fear the swarm.

Link isn't working for me. Is Dear Esther in there? Because that "game" is more of a walking while listening to poetry simulator than a game. It was worth the $5 I paid for it on that Steam sale, but any more than that and I'd be pissed.

There once was a man from Nantucket

A forgotten classic that would absolutely kill if they did a remake of it.

the early morning
turns into early day
a sunset comes they
take the colors
away
where you are
alternate reality

a bit like home yet
unmistakably new
a morning rain then
evening stars come
and view
what is your
alternate reality

you walk around each
corner hoping to see
a way to get back
home a way to
break free
and to leave
alternate reality
this is your
alternate reality

O ye who go about saying unto each, "Hello Sailor"
Dost thou realize the magnitude of thy sin before the gods?
Yea, verily, thou shalt be cast between two stones.
Shall the angry gods cast thy body into the whirlpool?
Surely thine eye shall be put out with a sharp stick!
Even unto the ends of the earth shalt thou wander, and
Unto the land of the dead shalt thou be sent at last.
Surely thou shalt repent of thy cunning.

Daisy, I like you a whole lot
More than that bandit liked spoonin' that ro-bot

You are a diamond in the rough
or a flower surrounded by shrapnel and stuff

I will hang myself from my own tombstone
If within you, I cannot put my bone.

I love that damn sequence. The music was so pretty, especially considering the sound limitations of the time.

Considering the ammount of versions of that piece, it's hard to include it.

Old man Stauf built a house and filled it with his toys.
Six Guests were invited one night, their screams the only noise.
Blood in the Library, blood right up the hall,
dripping down the attic stairs, "Hey Guests!, try not to fall".
Nobody came out that night. Not one was ever seen.
But Old man Stauf is waiting there... Crazy! Sick! and MEAN!

Oh man that place took me forever to figure out. I accidentally stumbled on the answer before figuring out that each screen was a season. Then I knew what that meant.

So many killed silktails...

I'm fond of the haiku in the credits of Full Throttle.

Clouds cover the sky.
Dark goggles cover my eyes.
Speed covers my tracks.

Who could forget these classics?

"Man who stand on toilet, high on pot."
"Man who buy drowned cat pay for wet pussy."
"Man trapped in pantry has ass in jam."
"Man who fart in church sit in own pew."

No one's saying video games are illiterate.

I'm saying, however, that the dialogue stories in these things are dumber than the worst B movie.

As opposed to Hollywood's deep storylines?

Burr: Nice to see Grim Fandango get some love


It shone, pale as bone
As I stood there alone
And I thought to myself how the moon,
That night, cast its light
On my heart's true delight,
And the reef where her body was strewn.
 
2012-11-06 05:06:14 PM  
With bony hands i hold my partner
on soulless feet we cross the floor
the music stops as if to answer
an empty knocking at the door

it seems his skin was sweet as mango
when last i held him to my breast
but now we dance this grim fandango
and will four years before we rest.

I know it was on the list, and I still get chills.

Brokenhearted

Only farted
