Noticing the well known discrimination and bigotry against Christians on this site. Too bad the minds are so closed here.
Because that is what modern games are teaching gamers.
Nope. Just diversity of thought from the group thinkers. :) Too often in our industry there is a herd mentality. FFG brings up diverse thoughts from a traditional viewpoint. What is interesting is to see how the people who claim to celebrate diversity respond to them. Let's just say FFG makes them look really bad.
What is really lame is people that report a story because they disagree with it. All while they run around claiming they celebrate diversity.
Excellent article. :)
Excellent article. :) We ran an article over at FFG pointing out Nintendo did not apologize to Christians for not including a church, priest, or pastor. My understanding is those things are not in there. Yet they put a fortune teller in Animal Crossing. So they do include things that are considered spiritual. But then Nintendo has a long history of discrimination against Christians. Denying crosses on tombstones in games, denying games like Bible Adventures, Spiritual Warf...
Agreed. Disney Infinity is flexible enough to add content like that. Not seeing it in Swap Force. Don't get me wrong, I love SWAP Force. It is just dead in terms of replay to me now.
You make a very good point. The additional playsets are expensive. We have called for a lower price - 20 bucks; or a one figure and one playset package. We finished Skylanders SWAP Force - had no interest in purchasing additional characters. Used Giants, and first gen Skylanders in SWAP Force. The extra content (type based) is mainly mini games. So did not even purchase all the SWAP Force types. To be fair Disney Interactive has released many maps for free. ...
Exactly they make it so confusing. :(
Then why not say Q4, instead of holiday? Or say Thanksgiving and Christmas? Its too confusing, cause I think of Labor Day, and other holidays between now and the end of the year.
Which holiday in particular?
Games are part of the culture. :)
I would disagree that the studies are not highly regarded professionally. The ESA spreads lies and propaganda like that throughout the industry. The studies that come along that supposedly support violent video games are paid for by companies who are making the violent games - so they are hardly considered reliable. Your right that the media latches onto the negative studies, and how all these school shooters played the violent games. That does not excuse the...
The Amish come to mind. :)
@kalkano Two reasons - 1. Mental exercise. Something people do to explore a variety of different facets of life. It helps stretch the mind, and open up possibilities and concepts you would have previously never thought of. 2. Someone asked me this question: "What is your exit strategy?" My honest answer was uhhhhhhhhhhh. At that moment I realized I had never thought about it. Which made me wonder how many of my fellow gamers had. ...
Many of the same promises are being made this next generation that were made last generation. Especially in terms of AI. Different buzz words but the same concepts. Maybe if we held their feet to the fire for past promises. I dont know.
You wouldn't be hostile and overly aggressive/defensive to exploring the concept would you? How many gamers instantly attack anything they don't like while claiming they are tolerant of diversity? Excellent response down there. :)
If anything it is an interesting question to ponder. :)
We gamers get the name. The moms, dads, and grandparents who bought a video game system for the first time with the Wii have no clue. Not being harsh - they are just not educated into gaming. We gamers forget that sometimes. We have our own language, internal debates, etc. Super Wii would have been a name that would have made sense to them. I was at Target yesterday and this elderly gentleman was returning a Wii U game because it did not work on his Wii. Maybe he also used h...
beakeroo1, Not everyone defines Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper as family games. Singstar is Teen so it excludes everyone under thirteen. Families have kids. Wonderbook was rejected by families due to the heavy magic. Harry Potter is highly controversial in many circles. Your right about LBP, and tons of older games they already own on those older systems. Why not have your favorite Sony games on Android and iPhone? What about Steam? Why not...
