Kotaku | These Old Folks’ Reactions to Black Ops II Are Adorable

Gather a bunch of 50- and 60-year-olds in a focus group, show them Black Ops II’s violent, self-regarding trailer, and ask them what they think. Recipe for incomprehending outrage and comedy gold, akin to the infamous “Your Mom Hates Dead Space 2,” stunt EA pulled, right?. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Kotaku, it's ridiculous how you always post such informative articles.

I think they're aiming more to entertain than inform now.
KangarooSam  +   1031d ago
Yeah. They should work on that. lol.
MattyG  +   1031d ago
Yeah probably. I mean a bit of funny is good but I feel like they're becoming a joke.

'You don't want to train people to kill'

This old biddy has obviously never heard of a little thing called the military or the police force!

I loved how genuine the reactions were. You can really tell the different personalities and get a feel for the kind of environment they must have grown up in in have these reactions.

I like how half of them thought it was a movie, yet gamers complain about outdated engines; how it reminded them of "battleship" and their competitive nature.

Even today video games are more of a guy thing, and this makes it show.

This was actually pretty damn good. Some of these people had some really thoughtful stuff to say. Some hilarious stuff also.
