Stolen Pixels

Stolen Pixels #241: The Gaming Afterlife



Yes, I realize that BioWare made both lists. For the same thing. If you’ve ever played a BioWare game, then you know what I’m talking about.

This is actually a takeoff of an old joke: Heaven is Where the Police are British, the Chefs are Italian, the Mechanics are German, the Lovers are French and it’s all organized by the Swiss. Hell is Where the Police are German, the Chefs are British, the Mechanics are French, the Lovers are Swiss and it’s all organized by the Italians.

I’ve never been to Europe, so for me the joke is as true as the European stereotypes on which it’s based. But I like the symmetry of it.
