Delightfully Out of Context Screenshots From the 'Ace Attorney' Games
There are few games out there with the memetic shitposting power of gems like Ace Attorney. And if you're blindly jumping into this, wondering what the hell an "Ace Attorney" is, then you're probably not going to find this post very funny. But I'll lay down a bit of context anyway.
Ace Attorney is a video game series first developed by Capcom in 2001. In the first game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, the player must investigate legal cases and defend clients in court while assuming the roles of different characters, including the series' most iconic defense attorney, Phoenix Wright, who heads the Wright Anything Agency. It sounds pretty boring on paper, but the game is simply hilarious. The humor written into Ace Attorney isn't exactly groundbreaking, but the strange and funny one-liners sprinkled throughout the game's dialogue have a cumulative effect that makes the player feel like they're in on an inside joke.
