What I Loathe About Far Cry 3

RPS - Yesterday I celebrated what is definitely a really fantastic game. A game that deserves celebration, a surprise treat from a series that never promised anything this involved, mad, and genre-busting. It is, overall, a very positive experience. And as I said yesterday, such experiences come at a price – when stuff is wrong, it looks very, very wrong.

***well, it’s a bit racist, isn’t it?***

Nope.

***The antagonists call you Snow White, a derisory name but one that pretty much points out that you’re the pure white American man in this land of colourful folks.***

Because I really expect that the guy who has tried and continued to try and kill me will treat me with respect and not call me derogatory/derisory names. /s

*** They can’t fight against the pirates for themselves, but you can save them.***

How is this different than most games where you start out as a feeble commoner and gain power and fame and stop the bad guy in the end? Skyrim is the same. Kingdoms of Amalur is the same. Borderlands 1 & 2 are the same.

Don't mistake the look of the world as an attempt to tell a more realistic story without the standard Hero tropes. This is just as much a fantasy world as the others considering what the protagonist is able to do on his own.

The game is amazing. It deserves GOTY award.. or at least Best Shooter award

Meh, it's not like they call you a honky.

And if they did, anyone who took offense, shouldn't be allowed to play video games.

In fact, I'd love it if they called me a honkey.

Trying to raise the 'omg racism' bandwagon to gain credibility

aliengmr1395d ago

I 'loathed' not being able turn on my flashlight when I wanted to and not being able to switch to burst fire or single shot.

Pretty nitpicky, I know, but they actually exist in the game and "racism" does not.

The game being universally well received means some one has to find some controversy with it. So a game that features multiple races must have racism in it. What else are you gonna write about?

Dfooster1395d ago

I totally love this game but I have to agree with some of these nitpicks even if they are like 1% of the whole experience where you say to yourself I might have done that differently. The skinning animals is a good one as is the constant use of the same lines from the pirates.

But all in all this is like slagging off the cistine chapel because there's a spiders web on it someone forgot to dust.
