"Unique" Ideas

Anyone got any ideas for a bad, absolutely terrible storygame?

Examples:

You play as a protagonist who reads a story about a character who reads a story about another character who reads a story about another character who reads a story about another character who reads a story about another character who reads a story about another character who reads a story about another character who reads a story about another character...

Experience a world of powerful, nuanced superheroes from the perspective of a braindead, fully-amputated quadriplegic.

Explore a world entirely inhabited by sentient felines and experience their emotional struggles, familial conflicts and ambitions as their goals conflict with one another.

I was going to say the cat one actually sounds pretty cool and then I realized it was just Warriors. Goddamnit. The chokehold those books had on me in elementary school… and Animorphs and those rainbow fairy books. :^/

Anyway - experience the entire plot of a crime thriller as the evidence left behind by the killer.

I don't actually know if that series is good or not. I was just posting for the meme.

As the evidence? That would be a very weird experience XD

The whole book is literally just stories tunneling into each other
