Cut the shit! – Product placement in Video games?

I just had an interesting thought. As I stood and my first smooth Camel cigarette of the day, looking down upon the whirl of people swarming to get to their jobs in their suits and fancy briefcases, I wondered about if product placement in games is so bad? Hear me out before you start lecturing on the risks of smoking or why I should shut the fuck up – Why must it be such a bad thing that big... more.

I’m not going to pretend that there’s someone out there who DOESN’T know what Infinity Ward’s latest game is. Because there aren’t any people not aware of this, at least not on this site.

Every once in a while, a game comes along that just makes you wonder whether some people should rethink their career choice. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a game developer (even though I’d like to be) so I’m not really sure about the development cycle or the different pipelines of different companies but there are some games that just leave you scratching your head… Games like HAZE (ev... more.

Anybody who hangs out on GameTrailers or visits Metacritic.com every once in a while knows this – some websites give out perfect scores in reviews more frequently than Gordon Ramsey makes people cry on national television. But why does this happen? Are the reviewers playing their first game ever, ejaculating over the magical fact that a man on the televisional doo-hickey is talkin’ to them? I ... more.

Four years ago, a pretty unknown developer by the name of Harmonix made a little game called Guitar Hero. Published by RedOctane and distributed by Activision, this piece of innovation turned the game industry on its ass and introduced an entirely new way to play games. Launching people onto the stage with nothing but a clunky piece of plastic – Guitar Hero would come to be known as one of the w... more.

For years now, Infinity Ward have been making games that have, to some degree, blown us all away. And now, when releasing their undoubtedly biggest title to date, Modern Warfare 2 is set to blow us all away yet again. This is all brilliant stuff and Infinity Ward needs all the cred and kudos that they deserve – but haven’t they been acting like real cunts lately? Pardon my French but I have be... more.

This is in no particular order, just things that would be good. Creating a “Next Gen” Interactive Communication System It’s pretty funny that a game like Colossal Cave, having been released more than THIRTY years ago would feature something as peculiar as a fully functional text-based adventure game, only to let the concept fade away as good graphics slowly took the upper hand within devel... more.
Games are MORE than art

For years now, as the gaming community has grown larger and larger, seeing the profits bigger than Hollywood, there has been more signs of desperation from the art community – claiming that games aren't art, but merely a shallow medium for entertainment. Wikipedia defines art as this: “Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or em... more.
