I wonder what would happen if telltale made a game about South Park?

  • I think it would be a commercial failure. So much of SP's humor relies on timing, the rest relies on gags being set-up (scripted) that would never happen even in an adventure game setting.

    On the topic of SP itself - It's a wonderful show if you can get past the offensive part. I've seen quite a bit of it and was touched by the underlying morals it tried to teach. That being said, there is so much offensive *bleep* in it that most people who watch it wont catch the morals or wont care. If it was toned down a little, even just a little, the audience would grow exponentially. We really need more shows like this today (though preferably a little less vulgar)

    Nope, because I realize that it's trying to be over the top. Because of such, I don't really think much of it when it's trying to offend me.

    I'll give you a hint: The answer is between "never" and "you're joking, right?".[/quote]
    Oh my God, they killed the Kenny-joke!

    I've never been offended by it, and I've watched every single episode. I don't always agree with the stuff they say, but it seems silly to be offended by it. It's sort of like if a very left-wing person were to be offended by Steven Colbert. Sure they say ridiculous, offensive, things, but it's all obviously satirical.

    I *have* been grossed out by it once though :p.

    And actually on topic, I don't think South Park would make a good video game.

  • Blugh, Stephen Colbert doesn't offend me, but he annoys the hell out of me. I don't care if it's satire, it's grating.

    So there hasn't been a single person so far who felt favorably about a Telltale-created South Park game, right?

  • Telltale+South Park= big trouble on how awful and bad it will be. :D

    I'd feel mildly positive. It'd be new territory, but I think Telltale's writers could handle it.

  • Considering how the early South Park games turned out...it'd be very surprising if Matt and Trey allowed this to happen.

  • A South Park adventure game could work. It'd need to be written by Parker and Stone and actually have good puzzle integration. But when you do a South Park game you risk tarnishing your image somewhat.

    Also I don't think i've ever been offended by South Park, they're equal-rights offenders. Family Guy however...

    I'm pretty sure that if the game were to happen, they would be on the supervising/writing. I just wouldn't see it any other way.
