MMGN: I want to be a bad guy. We play the hero far too often in video games. Sure, we’re condition to root for the hero, and often the underdog, in stories from a young age, but just once I want to be fighting against Jack Bauer, and winning.
It's my game i should be able to do what i want if i wanna kill a civilian i should be able to do it.It's not like i'm gonna go and do it in real life. @below you know there's always gonna be butt hurt people over something they don't like.
Tell that to the douches who wanted to sue R* about Manhunt and in turn prevented us from getting a Manhunt 3.
ppl r idiots, who can't seperate or differentiate real life with fantasy or made up stuff. yea sure ... director of 24 decides to kill innocent ppl or cops in movies, nobody raises a voice and calls it a masterpiece whereas if gamer does the same in a game ... suddenly an uproar ... hypocrisyy at its finest.
make your own game then. then you can kill all the civilians you want. Also, they have game about racisim, genocide, and all of the above. Why don't you play that too? You won't do it in real life, so why not do it in game? I won't feel different about you if you enjoyed a game about killing Jews <--sarcasm/ I JUST wrote an article about morals, I love GTA, but if you WANT to go out of your way to kill civilians (not to test funny physics or AI and take it dead seriously), that's a test of your sanity.
Dang bro chill it's just my opinion if you don't like it that's fine with me. Did you ever play a game on ps2 called total overdose??It's a game about a white man killing hispanics i'm hispanic did i find it offensive to see my race get killed??No it's just a game. http://youtu.be/uJPZ7-Yy3yc
Killing Jews is different then killing civilians. Killing Jews is alienating an entire people. Killing civilians can be killing any race, religion, and or sex.
@Lavitz2012 Total Overdose does not have white people killing Hispanics. "The player assumes the role of Ramiro "Ram" Cruz" <- That's a Hispanic name Also, when you said: "It's my game i should be able to do what i want if i wanna kill a civilian..." It's not made by you. You can't decide what goes in the game. The only limitations that are in it are what the people that made it put in. I have played Resident Evil 4, That's a game that has an American killing Spanish people. But its OK because that's the PLOT of the story. I didn't say, its fun killing Spanish people while I played. And if I had a choice, I wouldn't kill them unless they tried to kill my player Games like MW2 give you an option, or games like GTA give you an option. those are fine. But why say, let me have the ability to kill them, or include them so I can kill them to see what happens. "it makes it look realistic" <-- that's the saddest excuse ever.
It's actually not your game you only buy the license to play the game. The game still belongs to their respective publisher.
na just cops..
this^^^ fuck cops They are just like any other street gang but state sponsored.
man, coffee everywhere
" They are just like any other street gang but state sponsored." - Made me lol. +funny bubble
Last time I check street gangs didn't protect me or my community.
I would rather use mind control and make them do what ever I tell them to do.
it's only a game nobody's hurt...except virtual characters :P
Im going to kill everything thats moves in Saints Row 3. With nut shots.
It doesn't mean we have not seen or discussed this before. This subject has been raised over and over again from the shows we watch (Movies, TV) to the things we read (Books, Comics). Not because you can play the part in a virtual world doesn't mean its more influential than other mediums that came before it. I believe it all comes down to proper supervision to make sure the younger audience understand that this is all fiction and should not be done in real life. A simple education of what is right and wrong can go a long way.
The thing, for me, is that the immersion is broken when you can shoot innocent civilians with no repercussions. Not including them in a game mitigates the problem without being (too) unrealistic. Not that I'm opposed to it, of course not. I have great fun in GTA sometimes doing various things that make me question my own sanity. And it's always nice to have sandbox or extra modes that let you do whatever you want. But from a story perspective, it generally is either done to gain publicity (No Russian), or is supposed to be this massive suspension of disbelief. For some games, this is alright, like GTA, but not for games like Battlefield, games that are far more story-driven and tied-down to reality.
