South Park has been part of Comedy Central's line-up for more than 20 years and for the longest time, fans have wanted a faithful recreation of their beloved adults-only cartoon. Results have ranged from the uninspired (South Park Rally) to the downright abysmal (South Park: The Game)

The result was a project called The Stick of Truth, and it was clear from the first announcement trailer that this was going to be something special.
