IncGamers - Six Days in Fallujah Could Be First In Series

IncGamers has learnt that Six Days in Fallujah might be the first of many games which tells the stories of the troops on the ground.

More controversy in a series. On a principal level, I am more than up for that!

Interesting. I'd love to see more games built like this - based around diaries and first-hand experiences. I suspect it's going to be an amazing way to experience events.

How many games can you really make that way though?
Djorgo  +   2111d ago
Are you kidding? There's LOADS of little conflicts that would fit nicely into a one game bitesize!

I guess the success of the first one dictates whether the others will be made.

Controversy = free publicity, the more controversial the sequels, the higher the chance they will sell

Haze was said to be controversial...
ANd it sold like poop on a stick. I am skeptical of this game not for the story but more for the gameplay and graphics. If it sucks all around then no matter how controversial it is, the game will tank like all other mediocre games.

Agreed but there's a point where controversy becomes harmful. When certain countries refuse to release a game, it's obviously going to harm revenues.
Cogo  +   2111d ago
If the sales are not good enough in the first one, forget about it. :P

OTOH, if it's a massive success, they will want to milk that cash cow...

The level of involvement from real troops says to me that this should be a quality title. I'm very hopeful for more.

Maybe if enough get on board then it won't be as controversial...

I'm not so sure that other conflicts are important right now as far as translating it into a game. Maybe we should see how this goes down

I thought this was console exclusive. Why is it in the PC section?

I serve in the USMC and i would just like to say it would be more than hard for me or the families and friends of people that lost their lives in this battle to play, watch, or have peace knowing that their loved ones last moments are depicted in a video game. alot of the kids on this site think this crap is cool, but i can promise you that Fallujah was no game and i personally lost alot of friends in that fight.

I appreciate you for serving our country sir
and I am deeply sorry for your losses. I have a question to ask you and hopefully you don't get upset, but wouldn't you want to tell the world about what really goes on over there, rather than what is reported in the news? The "news" only gives the people half the story (or rather what they want you to hear). If this game can manage to tell these soldier's stories without being distasteful, then I welcome it.

My father was a POW MIA from Vietnam. I have always tried to be close with him, but that war messed him up so bad in the head, that it is really hard to talk to him about what he did. He had to do and see things that no person should ever have to. I have lived through the after effects of war my entire life, so I know where you are coming from.

Many of my friends from high school have lost their lives over in Iraq. As long as this game is trying to be a message for what war is and does, instead of glorifying it and pretending it is fun, then I say go ahead and do a damn good job.
