More on trashy video games

I forgot to mention this morning, that Trash Wars joins a motley crew of trash-themed video games. There’s the Japaense game Trash Panic now available from Play Station, there was that kid who made a Donkey Kong-like garbage collector game for a school project, and then there was the TrashCade, a more literal take on the subject. Know of any others? Send them our way!

UPDATE: I should have Googled before hitting publish. Trash, the game, has a post-appocalyptic theme wherein trash is used as building material. And check out this amazing overview of how trash cans are used in video games from the user-edited site Giant Bomb.

In video games, Trash cans do not serve their tradition purpose. Relatively few games employ a mechanic for the disposal of trash. Rather, whenever trash cans are featured in video games, it is mostly for the purposes of weaponry or cover.
