Default South Park - Editorial @ Gamers Progress

March 4th, 2014, 09:50
Gamers Progress talks about South Park, and its part in gaming culture.

Its impossible to overlook the bond that South Park has had with video game culture since its early days. With South Park: The Stick of Truth coming out soon, Playing It Old School looks back at the intriguing relationship the series has had with gamer culture.

The series humble beginnings started when Trey Parker and Matt Stone created the short films The Spirit of Christmas (released in 1992 and 1995) which became one of the earliest viral videos. Its popularity lead to it being picked up by Comedy Central to become one of the networks most watched original shows.

After the show gained popularity in the late 90's; the duo would team up with Acclaim Entertainment to create a series of video games based on the series. They would experiment with several different genres in an attempt to develop the right game.

Yeah I saw that, I think it went up while I was collecting them to post. I listed some I didn't see in your list in that thread though.
