  5. PANIC! At The Ice Floe from Ottawa, Canada writes: Gee, I wonder when the first "enlightened" one will arrive to chastise video games and all who play them.

    This game is getting amazing reviews though. I wasn't even thinking of getting this until I saw all the 10/10 rankings.

    I predict work productivity will drop 25% over the next 6 months. ;-)
  9. Paul Hume from Canada writes: Yea, this game is getting a lot of buzz. I've read that the interface has been reworked to make it even better. Which is hard to believe as the original games had a great interface. I also read that the attention to detail is staggering. I hope that it'll live up to the hype, but I know it will. The previous games blew me away in every aspect, storyline, interface, sheer amount of detail to graphics. It looks like that they have replicated New York City really well in this incarnation as well. I wonder what the radio stations will be like in the game. I always loved that aspect of the game. I'll buy a system only to play this game at some point.
  10. Wicked Messenger from Vancouver, Canada writes: Looks like I am the "enlightened one" who was come along to "diss" video games. I truly believe computer video games are trash. my opinion is that microsoft, EA and those like them are making huge bucks from turning kids minds to mush in the form of these games. I hate EA and those like them. They are all part of the giant "entertainment industry" which in our day and age is 95% trash. The thought of rich entertainment people becoming billionares from this stuff makes me gag. Thanks for listening.

    I just prefer games to TV, if I'm going to have a night in. At least games (good ones) require some sort of problem solving skills beyond shooting to get through them. What's your game then? I'm not big on EA either though, they can't do much outside of sports it seems.
  12. Wicked Messenger from Vancouver, Canada writes: My game is to stay away from all entertainment business trash. Same goes for my kids. To me entertainment trash is things like nintendo, movies like evan almighty, music like Jay-Z. all the modern propaganda hollywood trash. especially animated movies like Shrek etc. I believe these are filled with subliminal messages realted to sex, violence and racism.

    What are you going to do, lock your kids in a closet?
  14. Steve Gibbons from Calgary, Canada writes: I strongly dislike the premise for this line of games. I think its repulsive and a poor choice for any parent to give their children. I think any adult that plays it lacks character and convictions.
