In The Wire RPG, The King Stay The King

Posted September 11, 2012 - By Adam Rosenberg

There are two groups of people where David Simon and Ed Burns' HBO series The Wire is concerned: those who regard it as one of the best TV programs of all time and those who haven't seen it. This is for the former. What if you could actually PLAY The Wire? CollegeHumor asks that very question in a new video treatment that renders The Wire as a retro RPG in the vein of Final Fantasy.

You, too, can investigate a murder scene with McNulty and Bunk, solving the crime using nothing more than one four-letter word. Or step into the shoes of Stringer Bell as he faces off against Marlo, Omar, and Brother Mouzone. Or use a warp whistle to skip past the "level two" lesson on how freight shipping works. Speaking of which, all of you season two haters are WRONG.

Needless to say, prepare for some admittedly unconventional and indirect yet quite major spoilers. If The Wire is something you plan to watch or are in the midst of watching, just bookmark this video and watch it when you're done. Also, a word of warning to all: there's a LOT of text-based naughty language in the video.
