    On the menu where you select Campaign or Multiplayer use the Right Stick to look down at your hands. Now just click the Left Trigger and Right Trigger several times to get yourself up and walk around to the back right to the computer.

    Hit X at the computer and type in Zork to get the full Zork text adventure game. Exactly what you want to play on your expensive Xbox 360.

    Just thought I'd mention that if you have a USB attached keyboard, you can use that to enter commands/codes.

    If you want to quit the ZORK game, just enter "quit" (without quotes), then enter "y" (without quotes) for yes.
