More Video Games With References To The Wire, Please

Kotaku - I'm tired of Aliens and Star Wars references in video games. But references to HBO's great drama The Wire? I'll take more. Above, a scene from the interesting upcoming game Watch Dogs, which enables you to hack into—and see through—security cameras in a modern Chicago. (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Another ridiculous Kotaku article. Let yourself be enlightened by this fine blog article I stumbled upon a few minutes ago: http://n4g.com/user/blogpos...

Everyone needs to know how to vote this garbage down. Click the "kotaku.com +" link below the "Watch video >>" link and click "WTF?" for "Story Quality" and "No" for "Like This Website?"

won't matter, the owners of N4G (Hava) won't allow them to go down in star rating sadly.

"There are some sites that the owners of the website (Hava Media) seem to have specific sites set to a 3-star rating which is next to impossible to change with user votes, and Kotaku seems to be one of them."

from Johndread link.

Best thing for people to do is to stop clicking their stories and giving them hits.

Then N4G users should do their part and stop submitting Kotaku articles, I'm looking at you -Mezzo-, and if they are submitted, people should stop approving them. A good article, sure but this tabloid garbage we are getting on almost a daily basis needs to stop. It's not news and it does nothing for gaming or gamers.

Although I thought of The Wire too when I saw that sequence. But still that article was poorly written and it's not really a news piece.

I don't get it. It's a legit reference, and those of us that were fans of The Wire will enjoy the article. I know Kotaku generally sucks a fat one, but why the hate for this?

I have never watched the Wire and probably won't ever. But, lol, I will never grow tired of Alien references.

You haven't watched the best TV show of all time, and you just say you "won't ever" ?
MikeyDucati1  +   426d ago
No, I said I probably won't ever. Meaning, I could sit down and watch it if I have nothing else to do but I'm not in a rush to see it. And more than likely it will be forgotten. I'm not missing much anyway...what goes in Baltimore and many other unfortunate neighborhoods is truly sad. I'm just not in a rush to watch human degradation for mere entertainment. That place was a very messed up place.
