The short story “ The Most Dangerous Game ” was originally published in Collier’s Weekly on January 19, 1924. The story has also been published as “The Hounds of Zaroff.” The main premise of the tale has been adapted numerous times to film and radio. “The Most Dangerous Game” was published on the heels of World War I, and is informed by the author s experience in the war. The influence of the war can be seen in both the moral underpinnings and historical references in the text. For example, the book brings into question the morality of killing for sport as well as the presumption that there exists a stark divide between humans and animals.

In addition, there are numerous historical references to the politics and culture of Eurasia. Zaroff and Ivan are described as Cossacks. The Cossacks constituted a group of highly militarized individuals that fought for centuries in the name of the Czar. They were known for their brutal, violent ways. Connell’s identification of Zaroff and Ivan as Cossacks helps bolster the feasibility of the plotline. After the fall of the Czar in 1917, the Cossacks became fiercely hunted by the Soviet regime. In fact, Zaroff cites this genocidal tragedy as the reason for his flee to Ship-Trap Island. Much like his Cossack compatriots in Russia, Zaroff finds the tables turned on him as Rainsford manages to ultimately hunt the hunter.

    " I wanted the ideal animal to hunt," explained the general.

And the answer was, of course, `It must have.

    The exposition has Rainsford having a moral discussion about the merits of hunting with Whitney. If we are talking about rising action, the first event would be Rainsford falling over the yacht.

    Imagine Tom Hanks washing up on a deserted island. Have you seen this one? Well, now imagine that, instead of a soccer ball , he encounters a Cossack psychopath/exotic serial killer named General Zaroff, who proceeds to hunt him like a smarter, crueler Elmer Fudd.

    Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game” (or “The Hounds of Zaroff” if you want to be different) is one of the most popular short stories written in English. Ever. Teachers love it, because it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s got a classic short story structure and lots of great irony. And students love it, because it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s, well, super creepy and weird.

    The Most Dangerous Game opens with a conversation between two men, Whitney and Rainsford. The pair are on a yacht headed to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At the time of the story, they find themselves somewhere in the Caribbean. Both men are aficionados of big-game hunting. They discuss the ability of an animal to understand a hunt. Rainsford believes that animals are incapable of feeling or understanding any human emotion.

    Shortly after their discussion, Whitney retires for the evening. Rainsford decides to stay on deck to smoke his pipe. He suddenly hears the sound of gunshots and in his attempt to see the source of the sound, he falls into the water. After a brief moment of panic, Rainsford rallies and decides to swim toward the source of the gunshots. When he finally makes it ashore, he falls asleep.

    If I were to make a game, it would be like this: A game that has similar atmosphere as that of MGS3. You woke up one day you are lost in a jungle without memory or anything except your trusty dagger and a pendant. You have to find your way out of the jungle and be back home. But things aren t all that easy cause you ll have to tackle the hardships of life in the jungle, not to mention wild beasts, harsh weather and bandits. You can use all the resources you can find in order to survive. You gain experiences at every certain point of game which enables you to customized your stats. Your diet also in the jungle can also affect your appearance similar to that of GTA:SA. And oh, this game has lots of twists in it. As the story unfolds more and more people comes into place. And I want to fill this game with secret places (ex. a place where you could pick up a sturdy sword, a place where you could have contact with E.T., Sasquatch, etc) and viewtiful insights.
