    And let's look at what I can do without being a Nazi:

    Blow up towns and enslave children in Fallout 3
    Enslave the galaxy in Knights of the Old Republic
    **** hookers and then launch an RPG into them in GTA
    And who knows, those goombas probably had mothers.

    The point of a video game is to escape from reality. You can do what you wish without any real moral or material consequences.
    What mission do you enslave children in Fallout 3? That's pretty bad ass. I either just forgot about it or haven't come across it yet.

    Some of the changes coming in Civ 5 look really interesting. Just not being able to stack military units will make a significant difference.

    I want no **** nuclear weapons. Things that flatten cities damn it. Things I can program to hit certain cities, and have a "Button" to do an all out mass strike with. When I win the space race, I like nuking the computer, I hate that nukes are so... weaksauce. GIVE ME MY NUKES!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Eh, I'm sure I'll get a lot of flak for this, but, I think that humanising the Taleban is a really important thing to do, and I award all accolades to the game for doing so. I could get into the politics of how the Taleban is just fighting for freedom, or their land, etc., as opposed to fighting the American Infidel because Allah Said To, but, whichever version you believe, at the end of the day, the Taleban fighters are still human, undeniably and irrevocably.

    They've got a side, they've got a viewpoint, and they've got support -- no reason not to be able to play as a Taleban fighter, they're just as fitting soldiers as the Americans are.

    The current MoH in development is nothing but a Call of Duty shell, I played the beta for about three hours and found nothing new. The FPS market is being flooded with crap and thats sad.

    I don't see it any different than playing as the bad guys in any other game. You're still doing bad stuff in the game, and it is all still just a game.

    Talk to the guy at the entrance Paradise Falls (it's the old strip mall with the giant lard lad statue outside. It's in the Northern part of the map, west of the Germantown police headquarters). He'll give you a mesmetron (which hypnotizes people, makes them enraged, or explodes their heads) and slave collars. You can enslave most children in the game. I think that it's part of the Big Town or Little Lamplight quest includes it.

    I'm not too familiar, as I play as a good character. I find it far more fun to get Lincoln's top hat, repeater, and beard and liberate the slaves as Abraham Lincoln.

    Paradise Falls, he gives you the mezmitron.
    You can enslave people with it.

    Does your pc freeze a lot with the game?

    Well i've given my view point on this already.
    And my comment about turn based games was unrelated to that post, it was just a random statement, lol.
    But i was talking about civ and risk.
