A “company” in North Korea, a country which lives in darkness due to lack of electricity, recently released a new video game titled Hunting Yankee, in which the player gets to perform the revolutionary act of hunting American soldiers with a “sniper gun” from “behind enemy lines”.
Sort of like literally every Call of Duty game, ever.
And it looks exactly like what you would expect out of the Hermit Kingdom: an atrocious piece of barely playable filth with graphics more reminiscent of early Doom games from the 1990s than a first person shooter from 2017.

“The 3D-amusement entertainment program ‘Hunting Yankee’ is a fighting game of shooting and knocking down Yankees with a sniper gun… behind enemy lines,’ Arirang-Meari reported.
At first glance the game appears to be similar to Western first-person shooter (FPS) games like the U.S.-produced ‘Counter-Strike’ (CS) or ‘Call of Duty’ series.
A photo released by Arirang-Meari showed what appears to be a U.S. soldier being shot and killed by the player, with another photo depicting a soldier in the gun’s crosshairs.
‘Users can perform a variety of special actions in a virtual world reminded of a cliff-hanger battle scene,’ the article added.”
Absolutely riveting. As North Koreans starve to death in the dark, without heat in the winter or air conditioning in the summer, surely this totally real and not completely faked video game will raise their spirits and help them remain steadfast in their opposition to the vile, American pig-dog imperialists.
By the way, as the North Korean government touts their god awful new video game, we want to remind you this is what American video game companies were producing in 2004.
Demonstrably better in every way.
But wait! There’s more! Apparently North Korea has a metric shit-ton of laughably bad video games, including “Confrontation war,” “Guardian,” and “Goguryeo Battlefield”:
“‘Confrontation war’ involves ‘destroying enemy submarines using depth bombs, nuclear depth bombs, and anti-submarine rockets,’ while ‘Guardian’ allows users to simulate naval warfare with “cannons, multiple rocket launchers, and mines.’
‘Goguryeo battlefield’ is a historical game, which ‘vividly displays the battlefields’ of Ancient Korea.”
That does it, ladies and gentlemen. The North Koreans clearly have us beat. Rockstar, Bethesda, hell even Hideo Kojima should all pack it in and call it good.
Who in their right mind could compete with this?
Awe inspiring, truly.
