I picked up the game Watch Dogs 2 for cheap recently. First thought: the total omission of Berkeley in the game's theme-park-ified version of the Bay Area seems weirder than the omission of, say, Redwood City or Outer Richmond. (OTOH, I might just feel this way because I once lived in Berkeley.)


Second thought: the game's attempts at "hacker dialogue" are deeply embarrassing, but I'm still undecided on whether that's because they're inaccurate, or because they're an authentic depiction of people who work internet memes into daily conversation.
