The new Spider-Man game for Playstation 4 just came out on Friday, and first let me just say that it is amazing. I get bored/tired with video games very quickly. But this one probably tops them all. The only games that have impressed me this much have been Grand Theft Auto 4 & 5. So I highly recommend the new Spider-Man game. Incredible graphics, game-play mechanics, and a captivating story/campaign.
But within the game lies a very sad Easter egg. I guess the people at Insomniac Games are cool as hell because a while back a guy by the name of Tyler Schultz sent this tweet to one of the game developers at Insomniac:
@EvanFilarca #spideysquad I need your help. This may be selfish, but I’m ready to propose to my girlfriend and want to do it in a big way. @insomniacgames @bryanintihar @BillRosemann is there anyway you can put an Easter egg of “Madison, will you marry me?” Anywhere in the game?— Tyler (@topnotch1210) May 11, 2018
And they agreed to do it! Isn't that the sweetest? Tyler, you hopeless romantic, you.
The conversation went like this:
We’ve just past our five years in April so I think she’ll still be around in September lol.— Tyler (@topnotch1210) May 11, 2018
At this point, Tyler must have been in shock from finding out that they would actually include his marriage proposal in the game. Well, here's the sad part: Tyler's girlfriend broke up with him just before the release of the game. So now the marriage proposal, which appears on the marquee sign of a theater in the game, is being called "the saddest Easter egg in the world".
Game developers said they plan to change the sign in a future game update.
So I send my condolences to Tyler. He put a lot of thought into that grand gesture, only to get his heart shattered.
