Well played sir, well played.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.
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.
