They added some great melee systems and it is really fast and hard. It was always about moving forward and not going back or hiding in cover. Oh and gory as hell.

Just need that sexy announcer pack and we are good to go with the new UT.

I did go to Quakecon and see. Everyone outside who didn’t make it to the showing thought they heard the rapture. But there won’t be any leaked media they had people walking back and forth to make sure of it. You will probably see something in the fall time.

Totally, cause the writer of the game can have no say in what his own story means. Because whatever he says afterwards is “bullshit.” What world have we come to?

Well everyone’s definition of maturing can mean something different, so it is subjective. I agree with you, if we get rid of everything that offends us there will be no counter part to think about or is thought provoking. A good use of "mature" in games would be gaming growing and reaching broader audiences and broader diverse topics. While at the same time, it continues to keep the games it has but explore many other genres as well. Sophistication is in the eye of the beholder, or more accurately the eye of the person siting on the high horse.

I agree. the PS2 was so dominant that sony was very very arrogant with the success they thought people would spend $600+ on a new console with shit games.

It’s like saying Coca Cola is making a 2 billion profit while Pepsi is making a 1 Billion Profit. Journalists are like Pepsi is so much in trouble and struggling. And me and the two companies are like “holy shit billion dollar profits.”

Mental Illness isn’t a “thing” it of more of a category and there are different strands of it. I disagree that gaming or people paint it as disgusting, that is a huge hyperbole. What a lot of games do (like Amnesia, or Dead Space) is use it as a narrative through the protagonist, not to condemn it. Sure games might have the cliche villain who is “crazy.” But guess what? many of the worst killers and rulers were very insane. All those cannibalistic killers that went on sprees were mentally sick.

Your view of changing things cannot happen unless you actually define what you feel mentally illness is and show a game where it is actually being mocked.

The definition of growing up is highly subjective. One opinion of mature is different. And that is the very problem I have with this article. Gaming as medium matures or grows when people choose to voice their opinion in a game. If that is not going to happen then it will stay the same. This is what happens to every instance of art. But truth is many people don’t have the same view.

Truth is a lot of people are evil due to mental illness. that is what can be defined as a serial killer or psychopath. If we look to the past and look at the most destructive people in the world they kind of waned world domination or had a severe desensitization of human life through mental illness. This article fails to explain that yet goes through tropes to somewhat paint an unrealistic view of a narrative.

I love how the idea that the Xbox is struggling based on a two way competition, yet what is failed to mention is that it is still doing very well as a console itself. So in some peoples mines “selling a few millions less across the world while it hasn’t finished it’s launch” is struggling.

But the game is not going to be about decapitation. Many red ban movie trailers do get grizzly. If you go back, can you remember those Witcher 2 trailers about the assassin who decapitated those kings heads? I see no difference here.

What exactly are you getting at? Cause you make no sense at all. It’s like a salad of mixed up points that have nothing to do with anything. Tons of red herrings.

Great Job.

Ok that is granted. I take back what I said about the bias. But I don’t know man, it just seems that other games should be brought in the spotlight for using gore as appeal. Don’t all zombie genre media use violence and gore for marketing and the bliss enjoyment. it is almost purely about the gore with few exceptions to the rule.

I don’t want to compare these games to Shakespeare but for gaming as a media compared to Shakespeare’s literature as a media we are quite similar. Shakespeare’s beginning work (plays) was almost purely about gore and violence. Featuring buckets of blood and arms throwing about. Many of the audience was squeamish to the violence but eventually his work matured to more meaningful but still violent works of art.

We need random meaningless violent games as a channel for other people’s desire of violence and we need a lot of meaningful games that takes another look at violence. The latter is lacking and that’s what I agree on.

Reading rainbow, the Magic School bus, and other Kids shows taught history using wacky science fiction tools. That doesn’t mean you can’t have an accurate historical depiction or context from it. Sure AC had goofy sci-fi narrative, but it still gave accurate history throughout telling the story.
