Reader, pineapple on pizza is fine. There, I said it. Tasty, even. I quite often have some pineapple on a pizza - as recently as yesterday, indeed. But, apparently, some of you think that the sweet, juicy fruit should never be present on a flat, savoury, likely cheese-topped dish, and have done all you can to make Pineapple On Pizza Is Bad some sort of unwritten dietary law, or something. An agenda you insist on pushing to whoever will listen. Which is, also, fine.
Speaking of what is and what isn't fine, though, it seems that in the world of Cyberpunk 2077, fans of sumptuous chunks of fruity goodness on pizzas might well be slapped with them - fines, that is, not pineapples. Because in the Night City of the late-ish 21st century, said topping is outlawed under the - checks notes - Pizza Desecration Act. Sigh.
Look, Cyberpunk 2077 is positively drowning in shallow pop-culture references, numerous explicit nods to other games and movies, and tired advertising puns that'd make a junior GTA writer blush. So it's really no surprise to see the game's world turn on something as sweet and innocent as pineapple on pizza. As posted to Reddit, by user Work_Account89/, protagonist V's person-scanning eyeball tech can detect that at least one Night City resident is wanted by the local PD for "illegal use of a pineapple or pineapple-adjacent products".
Now, I can think of some illegal uses for a pineapple - but chopping one up and layering its sumptuous innards across a base of tomato sauce isn't exactly up there. But it's bad luck for this guy, should V decide to turn them in - a three-star wanted meter is no laughing matter when the use of lethal force is positively encouraged in the America of the near fu... In America.
Anyway, if this tickles your pickle - now, pickles on a pizza is a big no - you might be interested in checking out our video of more Easter Eggs in Cyberpunk 2077, which will be up later today, because oh boy, does this game ever know that it's a Product Of Its Time. You might also be interested in reading about how the game plays on PlayStation, given that its first wave of reviews were limited to PC only.
Also worth mentioning(?): the food in Cyberpunk 2077 looks really janky, huh? Like, Jackie, mate, please, those noodles... I wouldn't.
