Get it? Because now he's always being followed by a guy that's never shuts up!
Yeah, I know. It's a bad punchline. I honestly couldn't figure out how to better improve it, but this first part is necessary for the later (much funnier) parts.

Now when I learnt that there was an old game called Werewolves of London, where you went about the streets of London, turning into a werewolf at night and subsequently eating people, I just had to play it. Upon playing it, I just had to make a comic about this incredibly fun, yet surprisingly absurd game.

Firstly, the plot. Why on earth would you curse someone to be a werewolf, if the only way that curse can be lifted is through your death? I mean, that's like giving someone a gun and saying "You can't drop that gun until you shoot me, and so you must forever walk around holding that gun!"
The guy is just going to shoot you and be done with it!

Secondly, the game is just so incredibly fun. It's pretty much GTA before GTA was even made. The only difference is, that instead of stealing cars and shooting people, you instead turn into a werewolf and eat people. If anything, it's slightly more violent than GTA simply because of the fact that you can eat people. And yes, you can eat police officers as well.

All that violence though, really begs the question as to why the game didn't become highly controversial like the GTA games did. Perhaps it's only Americans that get angsty at violence in video games, because as the title clearly shows, this game is set in London. Not only that, but it was only released in Europe (to my knowledge that is).

Buuuuut, I suppose the real reason it never became a controversial success, is because no one ever tried marketing it as controversial. Unlike GTA, where the marketing department does nothing BUT tell you how controversial GTA is.

I really should see about making a controversial game one day. It would probably make me a millionaire! I'd probably call it "Cat Abuse Simulator" and it would probably involve you putting a cat in a bin, and nothing more.
Actually, why haven't I done that yet? That sounds like fun!
