An Easter Egg has Bill Clinton in Guilty Gear Strive
Some readers might be too young to remember how much politicians hated video games in the late 90’s/early ’00s. There are tons of stories of politicians ragging on video games and what they could do to the poor children playing them! One infamous one was in 1999 when then-president Bill Clinton called out Guilty Gear for its advertising that touted “kill your friends, guilt-free!” Well, the developers of Guilty Gear Strive didn’t forget how they were unrightfully thrown under the bus.
In a new update to the game, a digital figure mode was added for players to interact. One level is based on the White House, and fans quickly noticed a certain picture in it.
Yep. That sure does look like Bill Clinton now immortalized forever in Guilty Gear Strive. While some might see it as childish, I think it’s hilarious. The discourse surrounding video games at that time causing kids to be violent was a massive farce anyways. Using Easter Eggs in games to laugh about how ridiculous that time was is fair game in my book.
Guilty Gear Strive is available now on PS4/5 and PC. Arc System Works also confirmed that cross-play is coming online. So no need to fret about what version you get! What do you think of the Easter Egg here? Let us know in the comments below.
