The Onion has posted a very interesting story about video game violence, featuring a game called Close Range. The game consists entirely of shooting people in the face with various guns at point blank range, and has been hailed by critics and fans alike as a masterpiece of video game design.
Since The Onion is actually a faux-news site, you’d expect that the game Close Range doesn’t actually exist. However, you’d be wrong on that account, a demo of the Close Range is available on the games “official site“. Brilliantly zinging the video game industry, review community and fans in one fell swoop. Well played Onion, well played.
