    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.
    I mentioned briefly a game earlier that I had to look up. Not a video/computer game, but very interesting and in some way shocking: Play This Thing! | Game Reviews | Free Games | Independent Games | Game Culture

    In terms of mechanics, Train is a relatively conventional roll-and-move, race-to-the-end game. Each turn you roll a die and either add that many passengers to your train car, or move your train car that many spaces forward. The objective is to deliver passengers to a series of locations, the names of which are printed on “terminus” cards. To give the play more of a German-game aesthetic, event cards are introduced that allow you to speed your car forward, switch tracks, block other people’s forward progress, take over other players’ cars, or derail a train car.

    It doesn’t take very long for the first person to reach the end of the track with their first load of passengers. And they turn over the card and discover that their destination was Auschwitz.

    With the flip of one card, you realize what you have done during play. You crammed a bunch of wooden pawns uncomfortably into your train car, even stacking them on top of each other, because you thought it didn’t matter. You played cards to speed your train to its destination. You played intelligently and optimized the mechanics in your favor, and you won. And that means you lost.

    Is everyone else as psyched as I am about crap like this?
    Just don't buy the game.

    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.

    AP... while I respect your opinion I disagree with your logic.. or at least don't understand it. You say you are for "****ing common sense" but you obviously feel people who play these things are somehow lacking in "****ing common sense?" Certainly you just suggested that people who make these games/play them, are lacking in "****ing common sense?"

    Please inform me how an adult playing a game as a Counter Terrorist (put into the eyes of a terrorist to show the player what a horrible group of scum the enemy is) somehow lacks common sense?

    It seems you may have "****ing common sense" but apparently you have a hard time believing others can seperate fantasy from reality?

    I saw the nonchalant POV that people were taking towards this particular game and was curious to know if the same POV would exist against other games of that nature, but on different historical events.

    I believe that common sense if the most lacking commodity in our society today. I see it all the time.

    The whole point of the scene is to show you what a*sholes the terrorists are. It isn't advocating murder

    I'm so playing this it's not even funny. It's a game. People can get over it.

    Well there it is, I wonder how much "outrage" this is going to produce. There's a scene in Modern Warfare 2 where you play on the terrorists side and shoot up civilians apparently in a very bloody and realistic manner (though I wonder if it could be a realistic as Condemned....that game was creepy real). For me, it's not going to change my purchase. I thought Modern Warfare 1 was a great FPS and I look forward to 2 coming out. It has some cool multiplayer stuff. But I also don't see a big deal with this either. Australia is pissed off over it, but it's just a game. And it is a game centered around fighting terrorists, so whatever. I think any involvement by the government on this front would only be nanny state.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    So you expect people who play these games to be upset if the historical events where even less PC?

    If common sense slapped you in the face, you wouldn't even feel a thing.
