    If you entered the discussion in a civil manner, you wouldn't have received such treatment from me. Earn respect, don't expect it.

    You gonna actually answer his point? He's asked the same question like three times in a row and you just deflect the post and change the subject. Wouldn't you say that's kinda a liberal thing to do?

    If you don't like it, don't buy it. If you like it, rent it or buy it, or borrow it from a friend. Gamers have short attention spans anyway. Sometimes a game is considered "old" if it has been out for 3 months and they move on to something else anyway.

    Meh, not a controversy for me. I've been running over innocent civilians and clubbing them with a baseball bat in the various GTA games for a while already, slaughtered entire villages in a few rpgs and so forth. The setting of MW2 does make it a little bit different, but nothing that really shocks me.

    Not going to buy the game though myself. The true travesty is the lack of decicated server support on PC. No dedis == no buy for me at the moment. I'll wait and see. I already know what happened to Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Risings' multiplayer thanks to the lack of dedicated servers.
    ...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.

    First, we don't even know what the scene actually is or what it involves or is supposed to represent. In other words, we don't really know anything about it besides the fact that it exists. So at this point it's completely pointless to attempt to pass judgment on it.

    Second, who cares? In GTA4 you could f*ck hookers and then murder them to get your money back. You could club old ladies in the head until they had blood spurting out, and when they died you'd keep hitting them to see how big of a mess you could make. Then you could take their money and buy molotovs to throw at hordes of unsuspecting civilians. If that's not terrorism then I don't know what is.

    My only disagreement is that they had to go with the played-out choice of making them Russian. So typical.

    I'm not going to kiss your ass. I understand that most folks's idea of, "civil discoure", is one someone else agrees with everything they say, but you're out of luck if you want that from 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.
    Would I prevent a game like that from coming out or bitch about it? No, I don't care what they come out with. I doubt I'd buy it unless it somehow was the best kitty massacre game of all time; but barring that I'd probably take a pass on it. But I'm not going to get up in arms over a video game, it's just a video game. People aren't forced to play it, so if one doesn't like it they can simply not buy it.

    *hugs my ps3. Can't wait for screams to happen all around me thanks to my surround sound. Everyone that has a ps3 should start a Debate Politics clan O_o.

    Dedicated servers would be nice even for ps3 and xbox for the sake of player made mods, although. I hate it when companies make a match finding thingy of their own. It almost never ends up well. I hope they put full effort into it. I hear they are making it user choice free where it just auto puts you into the best games without your input. I sure hope not because, FatPrincess is that way and I almost never play it now, without a choice of games to join.

    I remember the first time I beat up on a whore in gta4. Big fat one. I ended up on the ground thanks to her hidden knife. Damn knife whores. I did like the Russian backdrop though. Made great story.
