Negative reaction? Isn't that a shock. We're only discussing the single most disgusting, controversial thing of the 20th century. Who knew? Let's do what the rest of the world wants us to do and forget about the whole thing, until it's time to donate to another museum.

Forgetting about it is probably the most inhumanly disrespectful thing you could do to all those people who unjustly lost there lives though don't you think? I mean no one tries to go an pretend the 9/11 never happened. Or Hurricane Katrina, in fact they never shut up about it which gets annoying cause there are plenty of other worse things that happen in the world every single day.

i strongly agree with you guys

it almost seems like they are trying to deny its existence.it almost seems like the people trying to stop this are nazis themselves

its one thing to be a nazi character in this game and be the one pulling the gas chamber lever

its another thing to be revealing how much IT WAS FUCKING LIKE HELL ON EARTH.(at least in hell they dont measure how long it will take for someone to explode from pressure) and probably have the FIRST jewish hero in any videogame

Denying and making it "off limits" are both equally asinine suggestions if you ask me. It's history.

"It's as tasteless as a game depicting slaves, slaughtering their rich, white slave owners trying to escape the plantation. There both very dark periods in human history and shouldn't be taken lightly. "
.
That's tasteless? And videogames automatically mean "taking things lightly"?
If that's tasteless, tell me; are you against WWII games where you fight Nazis? Or are you just against anything based off of unfortunate events?
If unfortunate events and history are too dark for you, close your eyes and cover your ears; it happens every day.

So if they used _____ engine, it would make a difference?

"Nazis hated Jews for many viable reasons but the way they proceded violently after that was the bad thing.
I would say that Jews are overrated seriously"

Wow....I hope you're just trolling.
"Nazis hated Jews for many viable reasons"? "Viable reasons"?
"Jews are overrated"?!
And then your response post BLAMES the jews for the German economy.

I didn't say it being a video game automatically makes it tasteless, but using an old Wolfenstien mod to portray a Jewish struggle is.

I won't deny that the Holocaust was a horrible event, but to call it the "worst" thing is kinda questionable. Go search up "Unit 731". You'll have your mind blown at what those guys did to other humans in WW2.

They heard Uwe Boll recently made a holocaust movie and they didn't want people to associate their game with such a horrible thing as a Uwe Boll movie.

but he isn't quite incorrigible. He directed the movie Rampage, which is one of the most exhilarating, man's man movies I've seen in a while (and no, it doesn't star any big monkeys or big lizards).

The actual plot is alright, but the action in that movie was great. Kind of twisted, but also funny and memorable.

maniacmayhem2176d ago

Rampage is the worse movie Uwe has turned out. Quick shots and MTV edits do not make a good movie.
A person going around shooting everyone because he thinks they're also does not make a good movie.

Awful plot, awful pacing and even worse acting.
