A mindless video game in which anything can happen

My wife used to be an elementary school teacher. She enjoyed teaching writing most of all. She was frustrated, however, by boys who spent so much of their time playing video games that they could only write "stories" that went something like this: "The hero grabbed the laser gun and shot the three bad guys and blasted them to bits. And then he rolled behind a rock and threw a bomb and blew up some more bad guys. And then the head bad guy shot missiles at the hero but the hero pressed a button on his wrist and the missiles bounced off him and went back to the head bad guy and blew him up. And then the hero jumped into his ship and the last bad guys tried to blow up his ship but his ship disappeared and then appeared behind the bad guys and the hero blew them up." It must have been boys like these who wrote the screenplay for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
