Wow, I want to buy GoW just because of this speech all of a sudden. Seriously, well done Jaffe!
I have to ask, are you trying to get a rage induced response? Because you certainly seem to be poking people with a stick and going "Neener neener!"Tinybear said:Well, the BBC has to thread a bit careful in the USA, because if they try to bring real journalism there, they would probably indirectly, or just directly also have to report that the US' journalistic standards are a cesspit. Imagine the outrage if a BBC journalist actually said something that in essence boiled down to "maybe now these dumb-ass americans can understand that automatic firearms do not belong in the hands of civilians?" Followed of course up with "Oh dear, they're blaming it on games again, how stupid are they?".
It's politics. Britain saw how France became the enemy just for saying "What the fuck kinda dumb idea is it to invade Iraq?", and realized that america is crazy. You don't ever let a crazy person know you think they're crazy, unless you want to die.
Well, to be frank, it did have a points system. Sure you had to go to statistics and search for overall points (which also dettermiend your level of "Criminalness") and it had abosolutely 0 inpact of the game. but there were points. and killing anyone (hooker included) would give you some.Quazimofo said:Also, since when does grand-theft-auto have a points system? I only noticed a money counter, but not points. Though to be fair, I never played the games a whole lot. Saints Row 3 won me over.
Well what with so much shit coming to the UK from the USA, it was only fair we sent some their way for a change! I have to love your summing up of him though - very funny and very true!Ultratwinkie said:They have Piers Morgan, an intellectually dishonest twat with the charisma of a Ku Klux Klan rally and the reasoning power of Rush Limbaugh.
Wow, I've never actually sat down to watch an American news program, but holy cow, you could practically taste the bias there, I don't claim that the UK's news programs are unbiased (that would be impossible) but at least they make a show of separating the facts and opinions, so you can tell what's going on and where the differing opinion lies. That ridiculous opening segment about speculative job loss at gun manufacturers was just breathtakingly overt... propaganda for lack of a better word.amaranth_dru said:Folks please note: This is CNN not FOX news reporting this garbage. A good sign that major media outlets care less about truth in journalism and more about inciting flame wars. In other words, ALL news channels are troll-bait and untrustworthy.

It's like pigs are flying.
I've never seen this debate broadcast like this, and with this level of maturity ANYWHERE...
Kudos to this program, and kudos to Adam Sessler.
You should play Spec Ops: The Line. Really does a good job destroying that trope.xdiesp said:Military shooters present the US military as heroes who export freedom and justice all around the world. So you haven't technically become killers, but you are certainly cheering for them.
Yes, because the United States is unique in the world and unique in history in venerating members of their armed forces. Good point.xdiesp said:Military shooters present the US military as heroes who export freedom and justice all around the world.
