An Old PS2 Game Delivered The Sickest Of Burns Back in 2004—And Twitter Is Obsessed

We’re so glad you could join us today for all the hot video game news about all the hottest games for the hottest consoles…from 2004. So, 14 years ago, inXile Entertainment released a game called The Bard’s Tale. It’s a role-playing, go-on-a-quest type game in the style and spirit of The Legend of Zelda, except that it’s also a parody of role-playing, go-on-a-quest type games. One of the most unique and entertaining features of the game is that the player can make the main character, The Bard, be nice or rude to people, which can completely changes the trajectory of the game. Also, The Bard is driven by “carnal, rather than noble pursuits,” so this isn’t your typical game.

In other words, it’s full of jokes, and there’s one right on the label of the game disk that gamers may expose themselves to before the game even starts. Apparently few people noticed back in 2004 (or have since forgot or over the years, so this Bard’s Tale subtle joke is going viral in 2018.

In other words, it’s full of jokes, and there’s one right on the label of the game disk that gamers may expose themselves to before the game even starts. For some reason, few people noticed (or forgot) back in 2004, and this little Bard’s Tale subtle joke is going viral in 2018.

It reads:

For A Really Disturbing Image… Flip Disc Over

One does, but all one sees is the usual, shiny and reflective surface of a digital media disk and…HEY!

The disturbing image is your reflection.

 

Sick, school bully and/or mean older brother-style burn, PS2 game from 2004! People on Twitter, fortunately, can take a joke.
