Gears of War: Judgement – Video Games and Gondolas

Public transit and gondolas just never seem to catch a break. And when we thought we’ve seen it all — the Roosevelt Island Tram being attacked by the Punisher, the Sugarloaf Cable Car having its propulsion cable severed by Jaw’s teeth and an LA bus rigged with a ticking time bomb — we find out about the “Gondola Map” in the upcoming video game, Gears of War: Judgement.

And if it just so happens that you’re not male and not between 8-35 years old, you probably have no idea what a “Gears of War” is.

So without further adieu, I present you the “Gondola Map” tour (by the way, I love the ending quote).

Just what we need to make young men crave for urban gondola transit… right?
