The Lyrics

"Fluff", in the context of gaming fiction, refers to information that provides setting and context for the game, to shamelessly steal from Wikipedia for a moment. Enjoyable for some, but if important details for character motivations and backstories and such are only found within said fluff, some people done gon' get pissed. Like this guy...
I just played a game, see
And some parts don't make sense
Doesn't mean I think it sucks
But some bits just don't add up
I tell you, you say to me
There's books I should've read
"All the parts do add up
You have to read the fluff"

You mean I have to read all this junk
Just to make my tiny nitpicks add up?

It's just my pref'rence
For this info to be
Contained within the game, bud
Not in books and blogs and crud
And not buried in menus
Like Final Fantasy
Self-containment's what I love
I don't want to read the fluff

"It's more enjoyable when you know stuff"
But why can't said stuff be in the game, bud?

"Need to read the fluff
You have to read the fluff
Explains all of the stuff
Inside the game, my bud"

Don't want to read the fluff
Could think of other stuff
To waste my time on, bud
Could knit myself a rug

Don't care about the fluff
May need to know the stuff
Got a game to beat, bud
Wasting my time enough

Stop promoting the fluff
Won't make me read the fluff
Why the hell's it called "fluff"?
Sense, it doesn't make much

"This book explains
Why that guy's skin is green"
Why the hell's that in the fluff?
Was that crucial info cut?
"That one I don't know
But the art is pretty"
I'll concede that one point, bud
But I'm still no fan of fluff

Seems like a waste of good money, to be blunt
So enough with flogging this bloody fluff

"You have to read the fluff"
Don't want to read the fluff
"There's cool things in the fluff"
Why not in the game, bud?

If you enjoy the fluff
I won't insult you (much)
I'd just prefer the fluff
To not be sep'rate, bud

Context and all that stuff
Backstory bits and crud
Kept hostage in the fluff
Don't have that many bucks

And yes, I know the fluff
Is posted online, bud
Not why I hate the fluff
It's just the concept, bud

Important story stuff
Is only in the fluff
Game enjoyment is snuffed
Hence why I hate the fluff

Some people just can't get enough of the fluff. Personally, I can't get enough of the word "fluff". Fluff fluff fluff fluff fluff I'll shut up now.

Although you might have the right stuff, you also need to read the right fluff! 555

There seems to be a whole lot of fluff in this parody and not enough substance. Kinda ran out of ideas I think. Not a bad tune but it wasn't one of your funniest ones.

The same criticism I had about your Glitches Bug Me applies here, too, bud. You need to tell more about the topic, rather than repeatedly tell us what the topic is.

You got the right fluff baby!

Gotta agree with Matty's and Grim's comments. I'm not huge on gaming (I really only play WWE and NCAA football games), but while you had some solid rhymes with fluff in here, it just seemed to repeat itself toward the end. Not bad, but could be better.

(Artistry) I think I'm going to agree with the concensus here, TCOP. Technically there's nothing wrong with this parody. It has great pacing and a lot of good rhymes, but there wasn't a whole lot of comedy to latch onto. I liked the concept of it, my friends are big gamers and they get annoyed with all the dialog in the games too, but you have to go through it or you'll miss something important. However, I found myself really struggle to really dig into this one. Sorry, not one of your best.
