Extra Punctuation Taking Lessons From South Park - How To Not Ruin an Adaptation

Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw:

So I was all settling down to write something about adaptations, but then I started to wonder if you could really classify South Park: The Stick Of Truth as an adaptation. I mean yes, in the strictest sense of the word, it's the television show adapted into a video game, but I've come to associate the phrase "video game adaptation" more with terms like "tie-in" and "spin-off", which connote a game made for little more reason than to remind you of the source, usually not doing much more than pasting characters and designs from the original material onto a proven but bland gameplay concept. (Culture, Industry, South Park: The Stick of Truth)
