I want to make a compilation of video game plots reduced down to a single sentence. It should be descriptive but not going into spoiler territory. Please don't name the game. Would you kindly help me with this?

Please don’t do this: “Stop the bad guy.”

Please do this: “In a rural town, people mysteriously appear on TV before being murdered and it is up to you to put an end to this.”

Ok, so here we go:

"You are an insecure, teenage dog that must deal with life's hardships in pursuit of true love with the power of rap music."

You are abusing sentence structure! I demand a rule update: Maximum of two clauses!

Also, question to the OP... can we ask the person what the game is?
