Diablo Meets the Sims
6:00 AM | Tom Bridge | Comment on this story

There are few games on the market now as addictive as Diablo II and The Sims, and now someone at Gamecenter with a twisted sense of humor has decided to combine the two. In what could only be described as a Kafka-esque parody, Gamecenter has released a piece called Diablo Meets the Sims. It follows the life of Daniel Green, resident of Simsville, and his new neighbor Diablo. Here is an excerpt:

Daniel's Diary--7:34 p.m.

Met the new neighbor about 20 minutes ago; he came over to borrow some chicken gizzards. Seems like a nice enough person, but I think he has some sort of genetic disorder. I didn't want to say anything (I'll wait until I know him better and then ask him about it), but his skin pigment is a dark red, and he's got bones jutting out of his forehead. I think I read about that disorder somewhere when I was in college, but I can't remember what it's called.

Anyway, his name is Diablo, and I think he's Spanish. I invited him over for dinner tomorrow night, so I'll have to fire up the grill as soon as I get home from work. I'll try to talk Peggy into making some of her potato salad.

Head on over to CNET to check out the rest of this twisted piece of satire. A thoroughly hilarious read.
