I've often wondered how the world will end, and now I finally have my answer: SB Nation's diabolically addictive "Bill Belichick Offseason Simulator."
The game is an old-school, choose-your-own-adventure style flash game, taking players inside the twisted, but brilliant, football mind of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick like never before. The goal is to complete a typical offseason day of football wizardry for the Hoodie -- but it's much more difficult than it seems.
The game is a bear to complete, and will undoubtedly test the mettle, moxie and endurance of even the most hardened Patriots fans and video gamers. Unexpected pitfalls and plot-twists are as plentiful as the number of hoodies in Belichick's closet.
I can proudly say that I beat the game this morning and was rewarded with a wildly entertaining Belichick-themed video, underscored by a band I'm sure is in Belichick's personal collection (spoiler, it's Creed).
Think you can best the simulator? Good luck.
P.S. There is an alternative path to beating the simulator that I also uncovered, whisking Belichick into a far more interesting and dangerous territory than the NFL. Try and find it if you dare.
