I love how he compares the assassination of a political figure to rape games and driving over bystanders , but then again he can be all hurra patriot type of man. Who am I to judge :p

Ironically, it is because of Washington that America is imbued with such freedom principles that a French company can market a game that assassinates him in a plot line that describes him exactly opposite to what he was.

That's hilarious.

Apart from being total bollocks, it's superbly disingenuous: one of those capital P Patriots whose angry bluster about freedom of speech reveals precisely how much they would love to curtail yours if nobody was looking.

"Ironically, it is because of Washington that America is imbued with such freedom principles that a French company can market a game that assassinates him in a plot line that describes him exactly opposite to what he was."

Loool

"Washington symbolizes everything in this nation that is strong and courageous. He could have been king. He could have been president for life. He turned it down because of the same freedom principles he gave our nation."

Well you have to respect that guys get drafted in the army and fight overseas in belief of this ideology, we are spreading the freedom of our countries fathers to these outside countries , Iraq and what's not, again nothing is true everything is permitted. Is it what it is. The real fact is people die for such notions though from a different perspective it can be totally absurd for others, reality however speaks , it's just a video game guys, it's fiction. The idealogyy behind patriotism is beginning to sound like religion now a days.

This was everything I wanted to say. I also enjoy that he mentioned RapeLay, the Japanese game - because both that and Carmageddon were recently featured on one of those lists of 'The Most Offensive Games Ever', which could easily have been the extent of his research. He just sounds uneducated in this area, to be honest.

That's exactly what I was thinking, I can see a ridiculous news story being made out of this
"French video game developer Ubisoft has been accused of producing heavily offensive material within their best selling Assassins's Creed franchise. DLC for the third instalment depicts the tracking and killing of George Washington, who is portrayed as a ruthless dictator...blah blah blah"

I would laugh so hard.

LordWolv
01-02-2013, 06:46 PM
This whole thread has made my day. It's why I loved Shaun so much in the game, because the guy who wrote about the DLC is the kind of people Shaun was talking about. What made me laugh the most (and I know it's been mentioned) is the comparisons; he's comparing a game where you have to try and kill a military leader to a game where you're plotted as a rapist. His ideas are hilarious.

Some do, but that's usually when they're trying to defend a point of view that's supposedly based on something one of the founding fathers said. XD Most people find the darker side of history very interesting....but only when it's convenient for them, if you take my meaning.

So what if people get offended? Russians have to put up with being the bad guy all the ****ing time in american movies/games/any oppertunity.

If the DLC gets boycotted my faith in humanity will be negative and right now it's at zero.

I swear the guy only read the description of the King George DLC as "AMERICASUCKSAMERICASUCKSAMERICASUCKS" Because if not, They're the equivalent of a crazy hobo screaming to himself, It makes no sense and no-ones listening.

An article specifically criticizing the OP: http://www.gameranx.com/features/id/11867/article/reactionary-men-who-hate-videogames/

Another article from Niagara Falls Reporter referenced by the above: http://www.niagarafallsreporter.com/Stories/2012/Dec31/VideoGames.html

EXCERPT:

Descriptions of some fun video games:

1. “World of Warcraft. Gamers are driven by Satan to become a “devil*****.”
2. “Assassin's Creed” Gamers kill popes and politicians to protect thieves and devil worshipers.
3. “Sky Rim” Gamers have sex with people hung upside down while talking with Satan.
4. “Dubstep Guns” Hippie culture, gun violence, and sadism for the flower power generation.
5. “Portal2” Gamers compete to use their *****es to create “glory holes” through masturbation.
6. “Dr. Who” A time-traveling pedophile breaks into childrens' rooms to molest them and kill their mothers.
7. “Pokemon” Japanese drug dealers have fun killing everyone.
8. “RapeLay” Gamers rape women and their daughters
9. “Princess Peach's Pool” Gamers see who can ingest the most hallucinogenic drugs.
10. “Carmageddon” Gamers ram pedestrians into steaming piles of bloody flesh. The tagline on the box says: “The racing game for the chemically imbalanced.”
11. Gears of War 2 Gamers slice foes with a chainsaw from the groin upward and use a corpse as a shield.
12. Manhunt Gamers decapitate, steel-object-to-the-brain impaling and jam a sickle up a victim's rectum.
13. Grand Theft Auto III Gamers steal cars, beat people to death and burn prostitutes with flamethrowers.
14. Postal 2 allows gamers to “go postal” with drop-kick grenades, whip scythes killing innocent people, cat carcasses as silencers on guns, hitting people with anthrax-laden cow heads and playing “fetch” with dogs using severed heads of dismembered victims.

Well, as you see in the video, some people were offended by the adoption jokes. I'm basically saying that people might also be offended by George Washington's portrayal in this new DLC (and have already). It's usually not overblown though. As far as I know, the whole thing with Portal 2 was just a few isolated cases.

Why do they always get offended by things that are no big deal. I mean, getting offended by a rape game or Columbian Massacre RPG are understandable, and gamers get upset by those to, they don't support them like the news and parent's suggest. But when they get offended by stuff that isn't even in the game (HOT COFFEE ANYONE), or something that isn't to big a deal, (THAT PORTAL 2 PART WAS TAUNTING THE MAIN CHARACTER, NOT OFFENDING ORPHANS AND PARENTS), then of course your going to get bashed by the gaming comunity

I dont see why Assassins creed 3 is being compaired to some of these other offending games. There is always going to be the critic who takes a game way too seriously. I think the DLC Tyranny of King Washington's concept is a kinda funny creative idea. Others though will say " You have to kill the father of our nation! O.o You are not a real American you ************************************************** ****************************************!"
