Monopoly Gets With the Times: Play As An XBox Controller (Or As Some Fries)

Would you like some fries with that purchase?

The new Monopoly release, Monopoly Empire, has updated game tokens. I know everyone liked using the boat and putting random things in the way, I would always be like, “Captain iceberg ahead!”

On a serious note though, it is interesting to see that Monopoly is catching up to the times. Monopoly Empire will now players to use an Xbox controller, McDonalds fries, a Coke bottle, a Paramount Pictures clapboard, a motorcycle, and a car.

The style of play itself even sounds a bit different, however, I could just be misinterpreting it. The description talks about buying brands like how you purchased properties in the old version. Then it goes into talking about putting billboards on a tower. I don’t really understand how that works, it could just be a rewording of the old style to fit the new theme.

It’s really exciting to see how a game I loved as a child is being upgraded to match present day. If you’re looking forward to this, let me know. Also, if you think it’s a terrible idea let me know that as well.
