The Game Guy
South Park, the long-running and occasionally controversial comedy show, is having a banner year. It’s currently in the middle of season 21, and this week it launched its second major video game release entitled “South Park: The Fractured But Whole” ("TFBW"). This is the follow-up to 2014’s game “South Park: The Stick of Truth.”
Show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker haven’t made a South Park movie since 1999’s “Bigger, Longer and Uncut.” Since that time, they’ve set their sights on something more ambitious: video games. The “South Park” games, written by the South Park team and developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, have acted as extensions of the show. There’s no editing necessary. Every joke that may be too edgy for cable television is somewhere in these games.
