Ghost Recon Online [Review] – Back to war (IncGamers)

IncGamers: Have you heard of the bystander effect? This particular little psychological quirk basically means that, if lots of people witness an emergency, they’re less likely to act on it than if only one person had witnessed it. The reasons behind this are many and varied, but a fairly important one is diminished responsibility. There are other people, so I don’t have to do anything; they can do it. And anyway, if no-one else is doing anything, then maybe it’s not that much of an emergency. Right?

If you want to see it in action, then here’s a handy guide! Download Ghost Recon Online, play as any class other than the sniper-y Recon, and start joining matches. I doubt it’ll take long before you end up on a team with more Recons than the other two classes combined, and chances are good that all of those Recons will sit at the back of a room, sniping to little effect, while the enemy captures points and wins the game. Why would they switch to a submachine gun and go in close, taking points? The other Recons can do that, surely! (Ghost Recon Online, PC) 6/10
