Thanksgiving Is the Perfect Time to Play the Original South Park Game

  • South Park on PS1/N64 is the perfect Thanksgiving title.
  • It features killer turkeys to murder.
  • While not the best game going, it’s certainly nostalgic for the holidays.

Thanksgiving is here. A time for family gatherings and stuffing yourself full of turkey and alcohol. With so many people getting together, it’s also the perfect time to avoid annoying relatives by playing video games. Although you might struggle to find a game that is appropriately Thanksgiving themed.

In truth, turkeys are only the first type of enemy that you come across. In later levels of the game, you have to face off against evil clones, aliens, and the like. That hardly matters though since South Park sort of has this ‘so bad it’s good’ thing going on, meaning you probably won’t want to play once you’ve killed all those turkeys.
