Marik Plays Bloodlines

Once upon a time, there was a YouTube user called LittleKuriboh who had an idea. He would reedit episodes of the anime series Yu-Gi-Oh! into shortened parodies. Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Abridged Series became a smash hit and spawned countless other abridged series, along with some spin-off channels.

Despite not being a fan of the anime, I absolutely love Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Abridged Series, even to the point where I’ve occasionally slipped some injokes about it into entries here. So when I found out LittleKuriboh had recently started a horror-related project, I was thrilled. Said project is a humorous play-through of the video game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines by the now-defunct Troika Games, done entirely in-character as the parody version of Marik Ishtar. The commentary by “Marik” (and his friend Bakura) is extremely funny and includes several references that are bound to please horror fans, with only a few injokes about the abridged series scattered throughout. Although it’s mostly new viewer friendly, it should be noted that some of it is somewhat NSFW.

If you liked the above first installment, you can watch the rest of the series at its official Youtube channel. Some might ask “Why doesn’t this guy drop the injokes and just play the game as himself?” Thing is, he made a video showing why that would be a bad idea. So please, give this video a chance. I doubt you’ll regret it!

UPDATE: LittleKuriboh has added more videos in the series to his main account and the final ones can be found on Team Four Star. He also did a “Live Stream” play-through of the game as Marik!
