Nerds pick apart South Park's World of Warcraft episode

south parkAs I said in my review of the South Park episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft," I've never seen nor played that particular game in my life, but like anything else, to many people it borders on a kind of obsession. A few World of Warcraft fans took it upon themselves to add a list of incongruities to the episode's Wikipedia page, pointing out various places throughout the episode where the game the kids are playing differs from the actual version. Most of those claims have been removed from the entry, but you can read a spirited discussion about the relevance of those claims here, and if you really feel like killing time, you can pore through the entry's history. Ah, nerds and the Web, they fit together just like peanut butter and jelly. Admittedly, I'm a nerd myself, but for cartoons. World of Warcraft I couldn't care less about, but if I found some misinformation on Mr. Magoo you can be sure I'd have something to say about it. We all have our weaknesses, after all.

I play WoW all the time, and yeah, there were a few incongruities, but it didn't matter - it was still hilarious. It wouldn't have been as funny if they did it exactly like the game.

I missed the episode and don't play WoW, but I have a friend who works on the game and aparently quite a few people from Blizzard worked on the episode, so I would imagine most inaccurasies are intentional.

These people need to take some time to reflect on how they allowed their lives to get this bad.

Yup. Nitpicking a cartoon for its depiction of a video game. It really doesn't get much geekier than that.
