Hold on a cotton pickin' moment. Spiderman takes place in New York? Where the New York Police Department operates? Wow. Just, wow. Didn't see that coming.

It actually takes place in Cirith Ungol, but he goes out of his way to help the cops in modern NYC because Peter Parker is just that much of a narc.

The Article wrote:It’s dumb to expect video games to be responsible reflections of real life, but it is also impossible, for me at least, to not feel some ickiness about the game forcing me into cahoots with even a fictionalized version of the NYPD, an organization that routinely oppresses some of the most vulnerable residents of the city I live in.



So it's dumb to expect a game to reflect real life, but I'm annoyed that this one doesn't. Never has a more appropriate entry for this thread been found.

I'm sorry the fun Spidey game isn't a big serious PSA.

And now Kotaku's getting in on the action, because of course they are, so strap in for a full-on manufactured controversy if major outlets outside the GMG vortex pick it up.

(Note: something both articles thus far omit is that Spider-Man's first interaction with the cops in the game is being attacked by a group of corrupt ones on the payroll of a villain he's trying to take down.)

Don't talk about actual gameplay. Next you'll ruin the surprise that Night Trap isn't a murder simulator.

Yes, I often am concerned that my gender will be erased from the world. I call it "Bomb The Boats". Which coincidentally is a great song.

That's too baffling for me to call it idiotic.

Really? The ice cream hippies who openly supported Bernie Sanders in 2016 are progressives?

Next you're going to try to tell me water is wet.

Even funnier, here's something from McConnell's (the "way better" alternative he mentioned)

They're left-leaning too.

I can see how a school garden program can be left leaning, but plenty of conservatives would be A-OK with that. Even NeverTrump Conservatives at least roll their eyes at "The Resistance".

JamishT was a heck of a guy,
With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.
