    Hmhmm. Put Russian Stella Star on that list. They made a racing game and accidentally forgot to include collision and gravity. Boy, those kossacks! They probs where drunk when they where developing it.
    I prefer Valve, makers of Half-Life

    Basically Activision is no more.
    They've merged with Blizzard, forming Activision-Blizzard.
    They don't suck so much IMO, but there are better companies such as Bioware and Eidos Interactive.

    Lol, but ofc. Very few can match Blizzard when it comes to PC.
    Blizzard is amazing or was before it merged with the blood sucking company that is Activision but so is Nintendo.
    Edit: I also forgot Valve.

    Don't like racing games unless its Mario o.O

    BBC News - Liam Fox defends call for ban of Medal of Honor game

    Quiet frankly, i agree with him. EA is playing a dangerous game (excuse the pun).
    I see nothing wrong with the game. There are lots of games were you get to play the bad guys. In the grand theft auto franchise the main protagonist is a bad guy.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't see this being any more or less shocking then the airport scene from CODMW2
    Yeah - it is just a game
    What's the difference between being able to play a German killing Americans in Command and Conquer - or Americans killing the Taliban? Games are games. . . people need to keep that always in mind.

    I play various racing games like Need for Speed - but do I condone running from the cops in real life? Hell no. I also loved to play the Russians in Command and Conquer - they had the Iron Curtain and Tesla Coils . . . come on, that was some cool ass **** right there.

    It's all personal preference. I won't give my $$ to games, movies, books that have content I do not wish to consume. I vote with dollar, the most powerful message I can send.

    Re: Liam Fox defends call for ban of Medal of Honor game

    We play games as a consequence-free way of doing crap that we would never want to do in real life.

    How many video games don't involve killing some people/creatures? Not many. I'm willing to bet that a huge reason video games have become so popular (especially among, though not limited to, males) is as a release for our caveman-like urges to fight and kill without facing the consequences that come with this in the real world. Even when you're the good guy (and there are quite a few that let you be the bad guy), you stab and you shoot and you blow **** up. Good or bad, American or Taliban, is not what matters, it's the blowing **** up that matters, because it feels good and because it's just a game.

    Games should never be confused with real life. And if they are, it's not the game's fault.
