A Gamer's Top 5 Signs of the End Times

AndyGoes writes, "Recently, I read a magazine article indicating several possible endings to the world and the threat level associated with each. They had things like Al Qaeda, the impending bee extinction and the Mayan calendar's prediction of 12/21/12. However, how are we as gamers supposed to know when the world is coming to an end? Will humans have a sixth sense that the end times are upon us?

I've given it a lot of thought and here are some tell-tale signs that life as we know it is coming to a close:

5. Parents start paying attention to game ratings

We've all had the experience where we've been on our favorite voice-enabled video game and all of a sudden in drops a squeaky, high-pitched voice. I typically ask what their parent's occupation is that doesn't allow them any supervision. However, if there is suddenly a lack of pre-pubescent gamers on our favorite game servers, we might want to start stocking up on survival supplies..."

Those squeaky voices usually come from those who pwn me on WaW.

And the voices of the parents are never heard... ever. That is what is wrong with this country!

bgrundman3464d ago

Never has a list rang so true. This is pretty solid.

And the red-blooded Missourian in me comes out hoping for a good double-barreled 12-gauge shotgun with my game!

Considering Jack Thompson just had a bill passed through I don't think he's going to give up any time soon

but we can hope, can't we?

CrAppleton3464d ago

You can always hope.. then you can always hope Rockstar comes out with a "kill Jack" video game

Resistance is a zombie game? That one's news to me.

Aclay3464d ago

Resistance isn't a Zombie themed game, your killing Aliens called Chimera.

In the first Resistance there was just ONE type of Chimera that resembled a Zombie and would attack similiar to how a Zombie would, but it's not a Zombie themed game whatsoever.

OgTheClever3464d ago (Edited 3464d ago )

I don't know why people are disagreeing with me. The only type of Chimera that could be mistaken for a zombie are the grims. The main enemies are called hybrids because they are half human and half alien. Still quite a difference from mindless zombies.

Also I presumed the ones disagreeing did actually read the article since I am responding to the uninformed section called "Exclusive zombie-themed games go multi-platform" where Resistance and Left 4 Dead are shown.

Chimeras are not aliens but genetically-modified humans ! And they wear guns and don't act like zombies, there is absolutely not any analogy between a chimera and a zombie.

I know this list is only for fun, but i had to say it.

The Wii, the Wii, the Wii, the Wii, and the Wii.

That may be a bit extreme, but it surely is a change in direction, that is for sure.
