GTA V

GTA V not only has some rather incisive satirical writing, the people at Rockstar also got the colors of the first aid kits right:

A correctly colored first-aid kit!

Congratulations are in order. This is one of the very few game developers who know their colors and symbols.

Wasteland 2

Surely this can’t be a realistic depiction of a wasteland when you still have huge boxes of Swiss pralinés just lying around:

Swiss chocolate (or fondue) next to a shack in the desert

It’s a bit sad that someone must have already eaten all the chocolate out of this particular one, since all it contained was unrelated medical items. But perhaps the previous owner simply finished off the chocolate and thought it would be a good idea to store first aid kits in the box instead of throwing it away. Resourceful!

Pokémon GO Safari Montréal

At this happening, Nintendo and Niantic seem to have included small booths selling Swiss traditional goods such as carvings of cows:

Only on closer inspection of the map do we realize that we’ve been duped: Those aren’t Swiss pavillions, they’re just mislabeled first aid tents.

Add insult to injury that this is all happening in Parc Jean-Drapeau. Drapeau! Get it?

Mars: War Logs

Oh boy, they even smuggled our chocolate up to Mars in huge boxes:

Martian chocolate is probably hard to cultivate, given the climate.

Gregory Horror Show

This PS2 classic has Swiss lizard nurses:

See what’s wrong with that picture? Yeah, it’s the heart on her little hat. Swiss people have no heart. There’s just laundered dictator money where the heart’s supposed to be.

Eurogamer

Eurogamer’s latest article proudly displays the Swiss national emblem:

Which is actually quite unfortunate, since it’s not about the Swiss gaming industry at all but about the unrelated topic of health items in games.

Shame on you, Eurogamer, you should know Europe better than that.

Doom Eternal

Looks like in order to combat demons from hell, the Doom developers thought to airdrop messenger bags probably filled with Swiss ready-made bricks of fondue onto the battlefield:

Ready-made fondue bags in Doom Eternal

I find this rather unfortunate, since every Swiss person knows that freshly made fondue with your own selection of cheeses, with or without Kirsch and matched to the right sort of white wine is the best. Ready-made supermarket stuff can never quite compete. It’s almost as bad as ready-made rösti!

What a disappointment, Bethesda.

John Oliver

As a former European, John should know better:

Switzerland is not actually that cold all the time, so this method of delivering laundered money wouldn’t even work in summer.

Stranger Things 3: The Game (and also the series)

Now lookie here, even though transatlantic shipping was considerably more expensive in the 80s than it is now, our kids in Stranger Things 3 heal themselves using entire suitcases of imported Swiss chocolate (bottom left next to the character portrait):

This is not the first time the Stranger Things team makes this mistake, look at the lifeguard fanny pack Eleven and Max find:

You can clearly see that this isn’t watertight. It would never keep your Swiss chocolate in edible shape. Boo. Boo, Netflix. 10 points docked for ruining our suspension of disbelief.

The Red Lantern

In this game, your sled dogs get mauled by a bear, but not to worry: You have a pack of Swiss playing cards with you to pass the time.

These cards will probably be used to play Jass. Not sure how you play that with just one person, but maybe the developer, Timberline Studio, knows. Screenshot stolen from Nintendo.
