HardwarePal : China after 13 years finally had their console ban lifted, their was a blast in sales of both video games and game consoles. Its very odd that consoles are mass produced there but were banned due to some cultural and parental reasons.
China will ban western air current if they could.
They may be popular in banning things, but this game is directly saying China is the enemy of the entire World, it's pretty fucked up, it's all pretty insane and I was just waiting for this to happen. China is not our enemy in reality at all as mainstream media portrays, neither are they that bad as a whole and their ways are quite exaggerated. There are millions of people just like us that live over there trying to make good changes just like we are here. When I say people like we, and they, I mean the people, not the Government.. including ours as in U.S people, not the Government because they are not doing a single damn thing right for us other than profiting from control and war. Not a discussion, just how it is period, unfortunately. However things are changing for the good :)
So what? Most of the Call of Duty games are saying that Russia is a big enemy. But Russia didn't ban it.
Well of course they make it seem like they are an enemy of the world. Call of Duty does the same thing, hell all army type shooters do it. It is just to make the story seem interesting which it usually isn't anyway, it isn't like people around the world think that China is bad because a "video game" makes it seem that way
China wasnt really the enemy. It was that General. As soon as they realized that the President was alive the stopped fighting.
Agreed!! Im glad you let that out!
Did you actually play the game? Because China wasn't portrayed as the enemy of the entire world. God I hate people who take things out of context like you do.
China banned it because it portrayed the authority of the government as unstable, which China really doesn't like.
Actually, more games won't be banned. Now that China is opening up to video games, companies will want to take advantage of that market. So they will go out of their way to develop a game that China "approves" of. This same kind of shit is happening with Hollywood movies. Movies shown in China cant be critical of China (among other things), and since China is such a huge market, the big Hollywood studios are essentially selling out to China to make sure their movies meet China's approval. I expect the big greedy game publishers to follow suit
why are ppl so up in arms if china banned BF4? ppl in america could not even handle having a group named taliban in medal of honor. LOL
Or six days in Fallujah. http://youtu.be/D_ULc9YtWmM
A name being changed in a game...do tell how that's anything like banning a game. They VOLUNTARILY changed the name because of some voiced concerns; a little more democratic than a game being banned. And six days in Fallujah wasn't banned, it didn't get a publisher. Anything to find the "hypocrisy" in America, even where it doesn't exist. A minority being unhappy about something isn't anywhere in the same league as no one in the entire country getting the chance to play it because their country banned it.
I still love that series.
How about you also lump in the people of Europe AND Canada as they couldn't handle that Taliban/Medal of Honor thing either. Former Defence Secretary Liam Fox mentioned it was an "un-British" game to plays as them and wanted to ban it, yet there were NO British forces present in it; they were all US forces. And why does SilentNegotiator get all these disagrees when what he said was true? When it's a minority in the USA, all Americans are crying and are stupid. When it's any other country, oh no, that's only a few people and we're still right. Nice to see what the general attitude on this site is, "If they're American, I hate' em".
Would love if more games had me invading America.
You can always make one..
Hey, i'll give it a shot in 2-5 years. I'm not that good of a programmer....yet
While at it let's make the good guy eastern European.
There's a few like that, but they'll likely get you on the NSA's watch-list.
Well I guess if they made it so HomeFront 2 you can be the invaders that would be cool but the game would be banned in like 15 min
Yea why can't there be any games of Canada invading some place?? Lol I wanna see my country doing something in these war games! Lol
Because Canada never does anything war wise lmao
America invaded Canada in the Fallout universe lol....
Well in the "other people's" history of WW2 as opposed to the American version the Canadians and British did most of the real fighting on D-Day in 1944.
Than we hear about the guy who made the game "insert name here" where you invade America gets kidnapped by the U.S Gov. for suggesting terrorism
I guess games is the closest any country would ever get to doing it! Lol....bring it!!
Too bad it will never happen in real life since America is so well armed. You may take over the Northern states but when you hit the south your done for we have guns everywhere 10 guns to each person so good luck with that.
chinesse will prob come up with a pirate version that works better then the real game
It's kinda silly to ban a game in your country when it was never released or never planned for a release there in any official form. Shine on, you crazy bastards.
The good thing about China is that you can walk the streets or go into a park at night & not get mugged or shot. As for banning BF 4. If they had Chinese troops saving the world I'm sure their government would approve of the game. ; )
Dictatorships are always safer because you have no freedom and the government watches your every move. Crime is lower also in these states you get executed for stealing do you really think anyone will have the balls to commit a real crime. It's easy to get rid of crime when the punishment for every crime is 20 years in jail or execution.
Sadam Hussains regime was a dictatorship run by criminals. Taliban regimes run by criminals. China is now imprisoning corrupt officials, while the west does absolutely nothing with regards to government & banking sector corruption. Makes you wonder about your point. Me, I like to know that when I'm in china on holiday I'm pretty safe. ; )
You still have to do what your are told, agree with the government 100 percent and if you decent in anyway they crush you. Any country that demands that U.S companies help them to keep lying to their people by helping them censor the internet isnt worth saving. I can tell Obama to his face on national TV that hes a idiot and i wont go to jail. In china i may never get out if i dared say such thing on a national forum. My grandmother always said if you dont lie you dont have to worry about the truth coming out. U.s companies have no soul if a country asked me to lie for them i would have told them to keep their damn money people like Google just dont care and are cowards.
