Because it was so much less offensive the day it dropped, right?

It was a controversial move back then, and honestly I loved it. It's a video game, it fit the narrative. That was a great game and I felt this level really helped drive home what the undercover player was going through.

Imagine the outrage if say a Russian developer... 4A Games (Ukrainian) created the same scene but in an American Airport. There would be an international condemnation. Just sayin'

Jiggy7d289d ago

Yea, the game would get banned.....most developers are smart enough not to try that kind of thing because of financial reasons.

Pro_TactX288d ago

It wouldn’t get banned. The U.S. doesn’t tend to ban games unless some part of the game is illegal, as was the case with The Guy Game.

Ukraine =/= Russia.

They are different people.

Really? Cheers for that information.
I couldn't think of a Russian developer so i went for a Ukrainian one in 4A games (metro last light)

At least back then SJW and snowflakes weren't as present as they are now. Everybody can have their opinion now, and I blame the internet for that

PC and SJW culture is on it's last legs. They are grasping for straws now. They always did but they are fading away fast.

I wish that was true, but it's not. They're getting more attention now than ever, unfortunately.

Nah. It's unfortunately a different and very sensitive world we live in now and you're expected to cater to everyone's feelings. The meek have inherited the earth and natural selection for the most part is finished.

bloop its a rlly small %, they just make more noise and the media backs them up.

One of the few FPS missions to evoke emotions (anger, disgust), but was very clever in doing so. I find the mission very impressive, even to this day.

Pro_TactX288d ago

You were angry and disgusted? I just wanted to kill more people than the AI. It’s important to take pride in one’s work.

You’re trying too hard.
