If you haven't heard of Google Poetics, you need to go and check it out immediately. One of the coolest and most unexpected side-effects of modern internet use, the idea is that you drop a few carefully selected words into Google in the hope that the following lines of auto-suggestion will create an inadvertently poignant verse of poetry. It's a trial and error process, but when it works, it works unbelievably well.
So naturally, having become a big fan of the accidental art form, I thought I'd give it a go with video games. It took a good afternoon of furious typing, but eventually I got Google to compose these 15 beauties. All appear exactly as they came out of Google's search suggestions, with only slight tweaks to add punctuation and, in a couple of cases, combine several verses in order to create more affecting, longer-form works. I'm fully aware that Sonic comes up far more than he should, but for some reason his search terms turned out to be a never-ending source of quality material. Probably something to do with his disproportionate years of suffering.
