Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Needs More Kevin Spacey

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

If there's one thing I've learned from the regular Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare trailers we've been getting over the past few months, is that there needs to be more Kevin Spacey in video games. Let's fix that.

Why are we limiting one of America's finest actors to a single virtual stage? Not everyone enjoys playing Call of Duty, and as a denizen of the internet I feel it is my right to call that completely unfair to the rest of us. I'd start a petition, but figured a 'Shop Contest would be a lot more fun.


Which games would Kevin Spacey fit in? What kind of question is that? All of them. He's a new Super Smash Bros. competitor. He's a Need for Speed car. He's a Tetris piece. Whatever Kevin Spacey wants to become, he becomes. By applying completely false logic to that truth, whatever you want Kevin Spacey to become, he becomes.


Here's a transparent PNG file I pulled from one of those aforementioned trailers. Not the right Spacey? You might find some more images in Google. That Google has everything.

Your task is clear. Go forth and Spacey-fy all of the games.

How To Upload Images — Instructions

1. Create your 'Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 636 pixels wide. If they aren't, you will be shot.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click

4. This brings up Click "Choose file" if you're uploading your 'shop from your desktop

5. Alternatively, you can upload the 'Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image's URL into the field that says "Image URL." Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

6. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn't, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I promise I will look at it.

7. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some big-ass animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you're still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.
