Video games and fast food have a long and sometimes rather odd relationship. KFC has an entire Twitter account dedicated to gaming, and there have actually been McDonald's-themed video games created for Nintendo consoles in the past. McDonaldLand for the Game Boy, one of the main reasons Nintendo needs to hurry up and add its library to the Switch, and even a DS game that was used to train its employees.
McDonald's arch-nemesis Burger King has also dipped its toe into the video game world with a launch of its own. In 2006, customers who bought a value meal were given a copy of Sneak King on Xbox 360. While not the best game in the world, for obvious reasons, since it was being given away for free, Sneak King reportedly sold somewhere in the region of 3.2 million copies according to Pure Xbox.
Pro wrestler, stuntperson, and YouTuber Leroy Patterson has set himself the lofty goal of finding and owning every copy of Sneak King left in existence. While there might still be millions out there, though probably not, there's no doubting at this point Patterson already owns way more than anyone else. As you can see in the Reddit post below, he has already amassed 2706 of them, easily enough to make a throne fit for a Burger King, Sneak King, or any other type of king.
The most obvious thing most people want to as Patterson is why he is doing this. “If they are worth something someday, we are rich! If they are worth nothing, it's a funny story and journey! It had an unusual release through a fast-food chain, it's a funny game, and it makes me laugh,” Patterson has replied in the thread below his original post. He also has a YouTube channel called Sneak Kingz where you can follow his journey to own every single copy of the obscure fast-food game.
One person to reply has asked Patterson to set up a PO Box so people can send him any copies they might stumble upon. A good idea and one that will save Patterson expensive journeys to far-flung corners of the globe just to find copies of Sneak King, If you do find a copy, give it a go yourself before sending it away. Despite the stealth game's sole purpose being to sell burgers, it has a Metacritic score of 54. That's almost twice as high as eFootball.
