Marvel's Spider-Man Misses the Mark with Edina Reference in PS4 Game

That's not what someone from Edina, Minnesota sounds like

If you're anything like me, you get a little giddy when you hear a Minnesota reference in a song, movie or video game. Fargo has been out for 23 years and I still get excited every time Marge asks the two girls in a bar where they're from and one of them says my hometown of Chaska. 

So, when I saw this video posted by con-nor on Reddit, I thought it was pretty cool that a Spider-Man video game would, of all places, reference Edina. Take a listen and see if you noticed the one thing I did that made it a little less exciting. 

Did you catch it? Edna Packer is missing our famous Minnesota accent. I know, we often complain that Hollywood goes a little overboard when it comes to impersonating us, but c'mon Marvel; if you're going to have a character from Minnesota in your game AND you're going to pay homage to Wisconsin with the last name, at least give them our accent! 

On a side note- at least they pronounced Edina right.
