I can. It's called L.A. Noire. [=)]
Silly Fox News - COD is Patriotic and right wing one day, but creates terrorists and degenerates another day. Let's see Ollie get into a ring with Jack Thompson!
This was better than I thought it was going to be. Good job dude.
You what I miss. "Life in a Game"
And this is where "The Game Overthinker" is an appropriate title for your show, sir.
Don't get me wrong, you're handling this very maturely: you aren't yelling or raging about anything. You're keeping calm and presenting compelling information. However, I do have this to say:
Have you ever stopped to consider that Activision used Oliver North in their commercial(s) because he was more prolific than just some random soldier? It's like choosing between a random voice actor to be the announcer for a Transformers movie or getting Peter Cullen to the same job. Companies want to leave an impact when they advertise something, whether the impact is positive or negative, and if people buy their game, they've succeeded. And honestly? Not many people care that Oliver North is in this commercial. It's business, dude. Just leave it alone.
Hey MovieBob! openings are called "titles" not "credits." the credit roll comes at the end.
Yeah, you have been one of the best shows here on screwattack, don't go becoming some Maddow or Olberman... there are plenty of bat shit crazy liberal spinsters out ther witout you adding to it...
A wordy 15 minute history lesson about Oliver North and Hollywood, just to end at the same point you've been trying to make for years:
CoD = cancer of the industry
Rainbow colors and cartoon characters = good
We get it... You miss your childhood..
Everyone misses their childhood in terms of gaming, the point he's trying to make is that the gaming culture has become less and less about "Mario can SOOOOOO Beat Up Sonic in a fight!" "Nuh uh" "Ya huh!", and more and more about "FUCK YOU, YOU'RE A FAT LONELY FAGGOT WHO DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO TAKE A PISS WITHOUT YOUR MOM DOING IT FOR YOU!"
The industry is kind of the same, but the same gamers who took part in the bit wars have discovered far more powerful insults and swear words, resulting in a FAR MORE immature and, let's face it, evil culture that seems to thrive on acting like a real life Eric Cartman.
What are you or Bob basing this on? Childhood memories and silly 90s marketing campaigns vs how SOME people behave on XBL?
People acting vulgar, angry or whatever isn't something new, nor is it exclusive to gaming. It's just something that comes with competition and is accentuated by internet anonymity.
People weren't just nicer "back then". That's silly. Could you imagine the shit you'd hear playing Mortal Kombat online back in the 90s? Or how about Conker's Bad Fur Day? It'd be exactly the same.
