This Is Your Videogame: Sumotori

“A lot of my friends won’t even play Sumotori (which I designed and programmed and which is my favorite) anymore, because I’m so much better at falling down and just lying there than they are. Like, we’ll start playing, and I’ll just immediately fall straight backwards and knock over a cardboard wall and then just kind of roll around there unable to get up, and my friends are still walking around, and I’m laughing at them, like, what are you doing?! Don’t move!! Fall down like a fatso and get some points!! And they’re like ‘this isn’t fun, you’re too competitive,’ but you have to be in this game. You have to be very competitive, and very bad at doing anything other than falling all over the place like a fat old dummy.”
