The Graveyard Shift: "Get Off Mah Lawn!" Edition

Hey everyone! Welcome to the Graveyard Shift, the nightly hang-out hosted by Kotaku's reader-run blog, TAY. This is a place to talk about anything - your lives, your gaming habits, or whatever else you desire. Hop on in and join the discussion! When you're done here, you could always go check out the articles over at TAY or TAYClassic! Or, if this is your first time at TAY, please check out this TUTorial!

Let's talk about mundane minigames. You know, stuff you can do in daily life that you can also do in some games. Like . . . Biking in GTA, or any game where you can play Golf, or how about TLoZ's fishing. That kind of stuff, yea . . . This sorta came to my mind earlier because I was working on cleaning up my pool. Had to sweep around it, skim it, vacuum it, chlorine it . . . Fun stuff. And I thought "Wow . . . Chores are like the forced mini-games of life . . :I". SO, that's what we're talking about today . . . Random household activities that you can easily see as mini games, and why.

Or you could just . . . not talk about it and join Game Night, or maybe update your point log, or TAYlendar, or you could just Talk Amongst Yourselves~
