10. Minecraft, in Informative Murder Porn

“Can’t we just learn this Minecraft game so we can get around our kids’ parental lock?”
“I’ve tried! It’s not like other videogames. I really don’t get it. It was all retro and like Legos but then a bunch of kids online called me a griefer and kicked me off.”

The second episode of a South Park season which signalled something of a return to form, Informative Murder Porn features indie sensation Minecraft at its core. By turning the ‘video games as cause of violence’ argument on its head, South Park adds meaningful perspective to the discussion whilst also being pretty damn funny.

 

9. World of Warcraft, in Make Love, Not Warcraft

“Gentlemen, we are dealing with someone here who has absolutely no life.”
“How do you kill that which has no life?”

When South Park creators Trey Stone and Matt Parker made the decision to parody World of Warcraft, their attention to detail and scathing asides made it obvious that they too were players of the game. Emmy Award-winning and consistently voted as the funniest episode of South Park by fans, Make Love, Not Warcraft is an endlessly quotable gem which punctuated South Park’s already stellar 10th season.
