I take it that you've never read Worlds of Power before, have you?
No, why should I care?
Because now I have to explain the joke to you.
The joke being that the author of that particular series of books 'attempted' to rationalize certain aspects of videogame logic like how rations helped you get through the electrified floor gauntlet at the end of the original Metal Gear by saying that Snake was able to pass through the hazard relatively unscathed because the floor was PG-fied down to a heated floor that was too hot to touch normally and only by altering his core body temperature via pigging out on rations was Snake able to bypass the trap without getting hurt (no dying, because again, PG-fied).
Basically, its an amazingly amusing effort at trying to rationalize videogame logic which is a fools errand to begin with as videogame logic is what keeps videogames from being simulations. And the point I was trying to make is that trying to say that one form of videogame mechanics is less logical than another isn't entirely a merit-less argument but it is a silly one.
