I'll be honest, I actually find the idea of a game that deletes itself when you try to run it quite amusing. Of course, this is as a disinterested outsider-looking-in, as MMOs hold little to no interest for me. I can imagine for the users experiencing this it is infuriating, however. Especially if on capped broadband.
Sounds like you'd enjoy lose/lose, a Space Invaders clone where the invaders you're shooting are files on your hard drive. Shoot the alien, the file gets deleted. Get killed, the game deletes itself instead.
It's a little bit like Virus: The Game (which I've still got a copy of over on the shelves to my left), which uses the files on your hard drive to populate the game world - but Virus only pretends to be doing damage.

Kids these days have it too easy. Get back to me when it manages to delete the entire drive, like a REAL glitch.
So the Fallout 76 demo shows that Bethesda is keeping up it's usual sterling level of quality control for new releases.
People will buy it anyway, just to see how enormous, hilarious or infuriating the bugs are.
It has nothing on your favourite game chewing itself up in the tape recorder.
I remember an EVE patch deleting boot.ini
And it ain't the only thing broken:
The joys of yet-another-digital-distribution-platform!
Let me know when it's on Steam - I'll pass until then.
Now they can go back and apologise for every other buggy mess of a game they have released in the past couple of decades...
Haha, not so much "enjoy" I think...
I was thinking more on the "you're supposed to be working, not slacking off!" aspect.
