“F khổng lồ pay respects” is iconic not because it’s uniquely stupid, but because the balance between “sad” và “flippant” is so hilariously lopsided. Commemorate the whole of your friendship, comradeship, brotherhood, grief, love sầu and morning. Just hit the button. The game goes to all of this trouble summoning sadness and solemnity và then totally throws that out the window when it asks the player to lớn engage in it by slamming that one dumb key.

In a mad rush to lớn just get through a game, we’re used lớn spamming the right cliông xã button throughout sad expository dialogue or skipping the cutscenes where star-crossed lovers finally kiss. Participating in emotional moments in games can feel real silly when they pause lớn ask the player whether they want to lớn a) hug the crying mother or b) steal her fresh bread & jam. “F khổng lồ pay respects” so simply và perfectly illustrated this cavern between gaming feels and breezy gameplay that we encounter all the time.

Or during a Jacksonville tribute stream expressing grief over the 2018 shootings.
