An article that deals with the 5 most controversial games to grace the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Interesting article, the type of stuff I love to read. Now adays on N4G it's all about stupid "why the ps4 is doomed already" articles. Bravo! I am giving a + to this site.
Actually and surprisingly,ps4 has been getting allot of hype and love from the community and you hear doomed with the next Xbox allot with that built in kinect and lower specs...which is weird cause usually sony is hated here lol...
Spec Ops was quite an enjoyable game, with some great graphical/artistic moments and a cool story, quite unpredictable and dark. The game-play was a bit hit and miss (it pissed me the F%$K off some times lol) but overall an enjoyable experience. I won't even touch the controversy surrounding Resident Evil 5, that was ridiculous. Duke Nukem was a horrible game, so I couldn't care less for that, its game-play was worse than FPS games released 10 years before it, no exaggeration. Cool article, brought up some things I had forgot. The No Russian mission in MW2 was funny, as the media wet themselves. I don't own the game, I borrowed it from a friend, and was sort of shocked (not offended) by that mission. Pretty cool, but quite sadistic seeing my 6 year old brother laughing while massacring hordes of innocents.
I'm surprised neither DmC nor Aliens Colonial Marines made this list. Furthermore, I am not sure how RE5 is more controversial than 6.
RE5 had a white man killing nothing but Africans. The dumb media had a field day not informing the populace that they were also zombies. I think you misunderstood controversial, not things gamers were angry about but the subject matter of said games.
Let's not open that stupid can of worms again. That "controversy" was more short lived than the first Assassin's Creed game. It came and went as did the game, which received decent reviews from what I remember, and sold pretty well. Whether or not we can call it controversial is debatable, but I see next to no reason why it's the #1 most controversial game of the generation.
Also, remember the part where a couple of zombies drug the blonde woman in that house and closed the door? That was a pretty hot topic for a while.
That game got so ripped up it was retarded. "Sheva's skin isn't black enough!!!"
I played through about half of Spec Ops :the line (free on PS Plus). Its a decent game but the shoddy controls ruined the game for me. I like Resident Evil 5 btw.
Surely Grand Tbeft Auto 4 and the now infamous fox news discussion about how you can kill a prostitute to death with a baseball bat
Just beat Spec Ops the other day. Game is great and also pretty brutal.
Lets see here: 5. Only played the demo; however from what I've seen it's a more realistic look at what can happen during a war, if anything it's more of a "what can happen" type of situation. 4. I actually liked the game despite what 90% of the internet says; it reminded me of how good a 90's parody can be, and also included a character that was lost in the sands of time. 3. I remember when Fox news talked about this for a while, and even was busted down when they couldn't confirm actual "nudity" but was "told" it had it. 2. Stopped playing after 4, and when Kotick when on record with his rant about people willing to spend $ on rehashed games; I did however play this at a friends house on their account, and only did the "No Russian" mission which is honestly nothing more than something you see in a early 90's B movie. 1. I'm black, and what I found offensive is the other black people complaining about how the game takes place in South Africa and a "white" person killing "our people." It's part of the story, and setting, get over it. I played a lot of San Andreas, yet no one mentioned CJ killing "white cops;" gotta like double standards.
To Re5: Black or white that's not the problem. Today what i'am saying to you is:when you are facing a loaded gun ,what's the difference?
