People are to sensitive nowdays. =(

Not to people who lost loved ones that day!

There's a difference between those that lost family or friends in RL and what happens in a fictional setting however. I'm a little surprised that no one asked about 9/11 correlations but in the end does it matter? It was a tragedy but the city is still strong and doesn't need to be reminded every chance a journalist sees some non existing or subtle parallel and then run with it because "news".

ThunderPulse3085d ago

I wonder if 9/11 even happened in The Division universe.

TFJWM3085d ago

Well unless they have the twin towers in the game I would think so

Ubisoft: "We didn't think about 9/11 as an inspiration for our game"

reporter: OMG ubisoft doesn't want you to think about 9/11!

seriously fuck these types of websites.

PC people (Politically Correct) need to grow up. I get offended by the news every day, yet I do not need protection from it. Only protecting those who cannot protect themselves is a good idea.

I wasn't till you said something,,,

Took the words out of my mouth :D

Nodoze3085d ago

So I suppose any movie or TV show that depicts violence or unrest in NY is off limits as well?

Might as well just unplug.

This headline just reminds me of those cheap clickbait ads, you know, those "gas stations hate this weird trick, the last image will shock you" ones.

I am in absolute agreement with the OP 👌

shinoff2183471d ago

I hate when I see single player games and see people begging for multi-player. Jeez guys it don't need to be on every game. Latest one I seen was atomic heart.

Multiplayer or even co-op

If it was always a single player game then that's how it is

Inverno470d ago

It's a trend that never really went away. For me multiplayer in a primarily SP focused game was an excuse for DLC. Then there's the mentality gamers had that adding multiplayer makes a game worth the price, otherwise it should be half price for half a game. A way of thinking devs reassured when they started adding multiplayer to their sequels. We see the same with multiplayer focused games getting SP in their sequels.

Flawlessmic470d ago

Tbh multilayer now is a way to add live service and mtx elements, very rarely does it come of well.

What single players game used to be in a lot of cases now require 3 other people for keeping to really enjoy it and I hate having to rely on others to get the maximum from a game.

Sp should be sp, if devs want to add a separate multi mode then that's fine with me, the legends addition to ghost of tshushima was fricking sick but totally separate to the main game. Sick of co op too.

Hofstaderman470d ago

I remember when certain single player games had them as included optional modes that was played on the couch. Had brilliant times with Syphon Filter and Golden Eye. Me and my bro used to used to fight over who would play as Gabe even though it was technically just a skin. Good times.

I didn't notice your comment before I added mine.
But good times indeed
