Play The Onion’s Close Range FPS for Yourself

Published by at 2:00 pm under Oddly Enough,Video Games


You haven’t heard of Close Range? Why it’s only the hot new FPS IP that’s sweeping the nation, courtesy of The Onion. Gameplay consists of a few text boxes of dialogue (throwbacks to the “Are you a bad enough dude to save the president?” days) and levels that consist of shooting people (and sometimes animals) in the face at point blank range.

As far as I know, it’s The Onion’s first real foray into video games, and it does its job as a parody of hyper-violent games nicely. Close Range is what most clueless adults think that video gaming is all about, and I highly suggest you watch the accompanying news report that goes along with the game.

Play it here.
