I would never have enjoyed playing Don't Die Dateless, Dummy! if I had played it alone. And yet on Saturday, I stopped by the Revision3 offices in San Francisco to help keep them going on their 24-hour Extra Life charity drive. We played the game. And I enjoyed myself quite a bit.
The weirdly-written dating game is one of those games that isn't "good" by any conventional measure, but is a blast if you play it with a group of friends. It's basically a choose-your-own-adventure kind of thing where all the women have huge breasts and the main character is a mostly depressing shut-in who is determined to lose his virginity before 30, lest he… become a wizard. Because according to the game's mythology, that's what happens if you make it to 30 without having sex!
Anyway, if you want to watch a ridiculous reenactment the game, go ahead and watch this video of us playing it. (Don't say I didn't warn you—it's silly.) But honestly, the best way to experience Don't Die Dateless, Dummy! is to have a few friends over, pour some drinks, and play it together. It takes "So bad it's good" to a new, wizardly level. You can get it for $3 on the Xbox Live indie channel.
