Far Cry 3: A chronicle of idiocy

The following article contains spoilers

If Ubisoft should be congratulated for anything in Far Cry 3 it should be for creating such a catastrophe of a lead character. Jason Brody’s descent into ‘finding himself’ begins with a prologue that tight ropes subversive brilliance. MIA’s Paper Planes brap-brap-braps as we’re introduced to stereotypical American rich kids living the highlife. Leaning towards parody, there’s a suggestion this will turn stereotypes and the cringe-worthy term ‘dude-bro’ on their heads. As the group of fumbling pillocks conclude with a sky dive so does the apparent attempt at intelligence. You can’t be ironic on purpose.

Farcry 3's story is actually pretty dumb IMO. However those of us who like the game, like it because the gameplay itself is so good.

agreed. I played far cry 2 and the story in that one was even less enthralling. However the gameplay is where its at with farcry by a long shot, the story is just a cheap excuse to get you in the game world. I'm not bashing by any means, it was dumb and over the top here and there but lots of fun to play.
