    Re: Modern Warfare 2 Opens with Terror

    RE5 pissed me off so much. I hate that game. With a passion. Maybe because a friend of mine made me play it 4 times through and he's trying to get me to play it again to finish off achievements. But I call the game broken for sure.

    Why? What's wrong with it?

    It's a shooter with survival horror controls.

    Battlefield and CoD are two FPS games that come from different worlds within the FPS universe.
    I don't think that one could be called a "better" in reference to the other.

    Oh the hell with that, call of duty is way better.

    I haven't gotten it yet (finding time for games is pretty tough). But it looks really good. I'm renting it up from Gamefly next. I want to play that Dragon Age too though

    I don't mind it. Not a real big fan of FPS though. Bioshock was the exception.

    Dragon age is most likely the best rpg of 2009, just like batman arkham asylum was the best action game so far.

    Dragon age has gotten 9.5 from gamespot, and that's a rare score if I've ever seen one.

    Borderlands is good if you also liked the kind of loot system that the Diablo series has. But if you didn't like Diablos system and not a big fan of FPS in general, I wouldn't recommend. The story kinda flops at the end too.

    And picking up my copy of the Collector's Edition of Dragon Age today. PC version got a 9.5 on Gamespot, 9.0 for PS3 version and 8.5 for 360. I hear there's a bit of child possession and sacrifice in the game. I wonder how that'll go through with some people. Not sure yet if you can participate though.
    ...we honor leaders for what they achieve, but we often prefer to close our eyes to the way they achieve it...

    In the real world, politics is compromise and democracy is politics. Anyone who would be a statesman has to be a successful politician first. Also, a leader has to deal with people and nations as they are, not as they should be. As a result, the qualities required for leadership are not necessary those that we would want our children to emulate - unless we wanted them to be leaders.

Hell, Hitler could even survive the war in that game. it could coincide with an interactive 9/11 game, where you get to pilot one of the aircraft into your building of choice: Sear Tower, Prudential Building, any given state capital, etc.

    Is everyone else as psyched as I am about crap like this?
    Well no, Iím not psyched about that. Sounds like a rather ****ty game. What idiotic studio would pick up that kind of thing. There seems to be no real point to it, and no real appeal save for skin heads and thatís a rather small market. And the 9/11 game seems rather pointless. There are already flight simulators out there that you can purchase without the baggage, and again there seems to be no real purpose for it or market save for maybe islamists which again, probably are a small market for xbox games.

    Iíd say if youíre psyched for those I hope you arenít a game manufacturer. Youíre bound to cause them to go broke.

    On the other hand, putting a terrorist infiltration level into a game that is without question going to massively sell, with the story of it not that youíre literally a terrorist but that youíre trying to infiltrate said group to take them down, likely wonít affect sales all too much and has a bit of a point that is sellable, unlike the ones you described.

    My point, in my first post on this thread, was in response to the lack of outrage at the game, because it's just a game. I was curious to see if those same people would cool with a game where you get to kill household pets, or some other act that is a helluva lot less PC. Would you be ok with a game where you bury house cats up to their necks, then run them over a with a lawnmower? Would you still be as blazais about it?

    Hell, it's just a game.
    Would I be cool with it?

    How do you mean? Cool as in want to buy it? Probably not, unless it was part of a over arching game that I really was looking forward to and it had some kind of logical and decent reason for having a section where you kill household pets or some other type of thing. If that was the entire point of the game, I probably wouldnít be ďcoolĒ with it in regards to wanting to buy it cause that sounds uninteresting and ****ty.

    If by ďcoolĒ with it you mean okay with it coming out? Definitely.

    See, Iím this crazy thing, its called a conservative. I believe in the free market. I believe in personal choice. I believe in personal responsabilities. I believe in parents actually parenting their kids. I believe that I can only be offended if I let myself be offended.

    If I donít like a game then I wonít buy it. Simple as that. If someone puts an extremely horrible thing that I greatly disagree with in the middle of a game I absolutely want, then Iíll have to weigh that issue and either buy it or not. What Iím not going to do is demand they remove it, or change their game, or god forbid that the game is banned. Thatís idiotic.

    I think the Postal Series has a ton of offensive things in it. I also think itís a ****ty game. Its one Iíd never buy. This is doubly the case after the horrendous movie that was made on it. I still have no problem if they want to make a sequal.

    GTA? Liesure Suit Larry? Mortal Kombat? I donít care. If it offends me, I wonít buy it, simple as that.

    Someone could make a game where a person must act out, while in the body of George Washington, every foul act uttered by Bob Saget during his Aristocrats joke while flying a plane into the WTC only to time travel back in time to bomb pearl harbor and then finally travel back in time once more to personally sodomize lincolns dead corpse. Fine, no problem. Make your game. Iím not going to protest it. Iím not going to demand its pulled from shelves. I donít care.

    Because if its really that offensive, if its really done in such poor taste, if its really so pointlessly low classÖ.it wonít sell.

    If it wonít sell it wonít be carried by stores

    If it wonít be carried by stores no major label is going to buy it

    If no major label signs it then thereís almost no budget for it

    If its not budget for it it probably ends up as some ****ty flash game sitting on some random website on the net that no one but a few idiots ever see.

    Ah, the wonders of the free market.
