    Is everyone else as psyched as I am about crap like this?
    I think you just killed it.

    Oh, my bad. I thought I was discussing how some warped mother****er created a computer game where the gamers were the terrorists and murdered people. Did I miss something?

    See, I don't understand people who are so against video games. They just don't like the fact that people enjoy video games for what it is.

    You hear about the argument of "desensitizing" children from feeling pain, and about glorifying violence, leading them to act reckless because they begin to believe they have "extra lives" or some **** like that. You guys complain about video games being too much of a fantasy and leading children to a path of destruction.

    Now? It's the reverse, "Oh it's too realistic". Children shouldn't be learning how to kill civilians and blah blah blah blah blah.

    It's a ****ing video game. Screw your social conservative bull****.

    I'm not against video games. I'm not into them, but I think they really kewl. I just think that creating a game where the players get to be terrorists is just too much.

    It's a ****ing video game. Screw your social conservative bull****.
    So, you would be cool with a Holocaust game? How 'bout a KKK game, where a p/u truck load of klansmen shoot up a black neighborhood? Just a video game, right?

    Like I said, it separates itself from the kids games and into the adult games.

    Leave it to the market. If consumers don't like it, it won't be successful. Or do you support liberal policies on limiting entrepreneurship?

    I prefer common ****ing sense, but that's just me.

    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.

    Why do you expect video games to be PC? Are video games a platform for politics? Please get a clue.

    And just to answer your question, Yea, I'd play that game. I probably won't buy because it sounds dumb, but I've played flashgames online that are similar to that. What's the big deal?

    Something similar to this has been done, though in a different way. You follow certain steps, and you end up mirroring the holocaust, and don't even realize it until the end. I forget the name, but it is supposedly pretty effective and gives a real jolt to people when they realize what they have been doing.

    Lol yep. You obviously missed:

    Independant games

    Muslim Massacre

    Columbine: The RPG

    Ethnic Cleansing (Play as a KKK member or skinhead and run through a city shooting blacks, Mexicans, and Jews. You have to kill Arial Sharone to win the game.)

    Mainstream games

    Command and Conquer: Generals (Play as terrorists and murder US soldiers and civilians with suicide bombers, anthrax, nukes, etc)

    Manhunt 1 and 2 (Play as a serial killer and kill people for a snuff film)

    Gran Theft Auto series (Shot cops, rape and murder hookers, etc)

    Carmaggeddon (Run over people with cars to earn points)

    Hitman series (Play as an assassin and kill or torture people for hire)

    The Punisher (Throw people in wood-chippers and ovens, smash their faces in with hammers, blow their heads off with shotguns, etc)

    The Godfather

    Reservoir Dogs

    Custer's Revenge [1982 arcade game] (Play as a naked cowboy and dodge arrows so you can rape a tied-up Native American woman at the end of the stage)


    ---

    These are just the ones I could name off hand. And you're screaming "Oh my! Someone finally made a game where you can be a terrorist and kill civilians!"

    The purpose of this game is to kill the terrorists anyway. You just very old.

    It is an argument that from afar we are desensitized from violence with media, but I would argue, up close, we are all in the same boat of being horrified by it.
