when he climbed the tower, there was a flag hanging on the opposite side.For those not familiar with gaming industries, Electronic Arts is the village idiot. They and Activision are responsible for a lot of the terrible practices in gaming today. Launch day DLC, rehashes every year as sequels, online passes, release first, beta test later, etc.
But on that note, I saw nothing particularly offensive. If you want to go that angle (shooting virtual people = they must be bad people in real life) the Germans would be by far the most hated group on the planet. I didn't even see any flags. :O
I suppose it's a subjective view with regards to subtleties in media. If symbolism in the game was replaced with Obama "O" flags etc.. what would you think then?Seems like an an over reaction to a game. It seems like an interesting single player campaign though and I'll have to check it out on the 5 day trial. Thanks EA Access.

I still wouldn't care. It's a game that tells a story. I don't look for hidden meanings behind them. I play to have fun.I suppose it's a subjective view with regards to subtleties in media. If symbolism in the game was replaced with Obama "O" flags etc.. what would you think then?
I really don't see it as right wingers. Just based on what little was shown it just seemed like an extremist group. Like every call of duty of what have you. Just happens this one is domestic. Someone needed to change the recipe a little. China and Russia or the Middle East can only be the subject of so many stories before it gets boring. Rainbow six is basically do the same thing except its residential. Does rainbow six get a pass because they didn't feature a Gadsden in their trailer? People can boycott if they want but I think people are trying to hard to find conspiracies.I wonder if the lefties will admonish this game because of the "gun violence" or if it'll be OK because they're shooting right wingers.
That's what makes them good...EA is the gamers equivalent of Disney. An oppressively obnoxious corporation that destroys good companies and the products they make and spew out halfassed empty garbage that sucks out you and your children's soul. Their fps games are for jocks and 12 year old foul mouths.
The FP shooters I play have no health bar. You get shot, you die. You don't get to know who shot you unless you saw them. You won't know if you've killed the person you've shot unless you saw them die. There is no heads up display. You must keep track of your rounds and magazines. There is no firing reticle. You must use the ironsights or scope. There is no map showing the location of friends or foes.
