Title: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 16, 2011, 07:54:27 AM
I've seen a simmilar forum game on the xkcd-forums, and it's quite funny. Here's how it goes:


An example of how it may look in action

A:
I wish I could play SimCity 4.

B:
Granted! You can now play SimCity 4 on your old Commodore 64.
I wish I had a faster computer.

C:
Granted! Your Commodore 64 is upgraded to the fastest computer available in 1991.
I wish I had more money.

And so on...

Keep in mind that forum rules apply here. So no obscene and offensive language. We should keep things civilized, funny and enjoyable. Additionally the three-post-rule also applies here.

Now let's start with the first wish (and let's see what's the result):

I wish I had more money.

Post by: wwecruz on April 16, 2011, 10:24:52 AM
Granted! Everything costs more now though.

I wish I had a better car.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: noahclem on April 16, 2011, 11:01:48 AM
Granted! You now have a V-12 sports car--but the gas and insurance cost more than your house.

I wish summer was here.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: mave94 on April 16, 2011, 11:13:53 AM
Granted! It's warm outside, but you have to work the whole day inside.

I wish I don't have to go to school.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: Shark7 on April 16, 2011, 11:23:02 AM
Granted.  But it snowed last night and the power is out.

I wish it would rain.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: GDO29Anagram on April 16, 2011, 11:44:35 AM
Granted! Good luck getting to school/work now, because all the streets are flooded.

I wish I can fly.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 16, 2011, 12:01:16 PM
Granted! You're now transformed into a fly.

I wish I was a superhero.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: WC_EEND on April 16, 2011, 01:28:45 PM
Granted! However you do not have any superpowers (kind of defies the point of being a superhero, but anyway :P)

I wish studying wasn't so boring.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: Lowkee33 on April 16, 2011, 01:56:59 PM
Granted.  Now it's just hard.

I wish I lived closer to the store.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 16, 2011, 04:29:01 PM
Granted! The store is now just across the river, but the first nearby bridge is 10 miles away.

I wish I had a boat
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: Biriali on April 16, 2011, 04:39:05 PM
I grant you a boat. But it's made from old popsickle sticks, has no motor, no oars or no masts. But it does have helmsman that is always yelling at you.

I wish my potted plants wouldn't keep dying
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: WC_EEND on April 16, 2011, 05:58:31 PM
Okay, your potted plants are now immortal. However, as a bit of a nasty side-effect of that, they kept on growing and engulfed your house.

I wish I had a better house.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: jacksunny on April 16, 2011, 06:46:03 PM
Granted! It sucks that there is a giant tornado barreling down on it though  :D

I wish I had a 64 GB iPod Touch.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 17, 2011, 04:10:05 AM
Granted! But you have nothing to put on your new iPod. That means downloading (and paying for) every song from iTunes AGAIN!

I wish I had a time machine...
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: GDO29Anagram on April 17, 2011, 04:22:43 AM
Done. It's called a clock. Enjoy.

Given my recent circumstances, all I would wish for is a new bed.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: noahclem on April 17, 2011, 07:23:20 AM
You have a new bed--a great bed! But you live on the arctic circle with no curtains and and it's summer so you're unable to sleep.

I wish someone would do my accounting for me.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 17, 2011, 08:10:11 AM
Granted! But that accountant secretly takes 70% of your money away and put it on it's own bank account.

I wish I lived in the 24th century...
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: peter007 on April 17, 2011, 10:40:37 AM
Granted, but Sc4D doesn't exist anymore and you can't go back.

I wish I could touch my elbow with my tongue  :P
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: wwecruz on April 17, 2011, 11:09:34 AM
Granted, however you only have one arm and no legs now.

I wish I knew what to wish for.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 17, 2011, 12:43:42 PM
Granted! This counts as a wish, so congratulations with spending your only wish!

I wish I passed my exams...
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: peter007 on April 17, 2011, 12:59:50 PM
Granted, but with only 6 (C+ marks) you can't find a job. So your at home unemployed.

I wish I could sit on the moon
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: mave94 on April 17, 2011, 01:17:43 PM
Granted, but thereīs nobody else on the moon.

I wish public transport had less frequent delays.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 17, 2011, 04:02:40 PM

I wish I had a spaceship.

Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 17, 2011, 04:35:38 PM
Granted! All hands are mounted on the same arm...

I wish I had fuel for my spaceship I wished for three post ago.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: WC_EEND on April 17, 2011, 05:48:10 PM
Granted, however there was a fuel leak in the spaceship, so all the fuel was lost before takeoff.

I wish I had a fully functioning Boeing 757 with RB211's on the wings.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: Risu on April 17, 2011, 06:53:02 PM

I wish a flying car!
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: WC_EEND on April 18, 2011, 06:54:02 AM
Granted, however the fuel to run it has yet to be invented

I wish exams were abolished.
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 18, 2011, 07:49:05 AM
Granted! But this prevents you to get your diploma.

I wish I had a copy from the 'real' Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy (written by Ford Prefect, the writer of the guide in the book series by Douglas Adams)...
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: mave94 on April 23, 2011, 06:27:49 AM

Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 23, 2011, 08:07:44 AM

I wish I had a Portal Gun
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: Lowkee33 on April 23, 2011, 12:10:30 PM

Post by: wwecruz on April 23, 2011, 12:18:05 PM

I wish I spoke Spanish
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: WC_EEND on April 23, 2011, 06:14:39 PM
Granted, however now nobody in the world speaks Spanish anymore, so it's completely useless $%Grinno$%

I wish Concorde was still flying.

PS: @Maarten: including GLaDOS is really only an awesome bonus in opinion $%Grinno$%
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on April 24, 2011, 03:23:51 AM

I wish my holiday lasted longer.

Post by: WC_EEND on May 08, 2011, 03:25:05 PM
Granted, however the music in question was downloaded illegally, so now the FBI is after you as well

I wish I could come up with something more original to post here
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: MandelSoft on May 08, 2011, 03:48:16 PM

I wish I had a game that combines all the good stuff of SimCity 4 Deluxe and Cities XL...
Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
Post by: Exla357 on May 08, 2011, 04:04:29 PM

Title: Re: The "Corrupt A Wish"-Game
