Would you all enjoy the idea more if it were a game that you agreed with politically? i.e. a game in which you invade a country on questionable intelligence, then watch as it descends into chaos b/c there was no planning? You could make it into a Chutes and Ladders rip-off, where the entire top 3 rows were chutes and you could never win except by not playing.




hahahha that would be a sweet game.

I think this game would be fun to play for about 5 minutes..its probably actually more fun to talk about
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I would love tosee a video game where you have tyo do tasks while some of your civil liberties are taken away. I see that idea going somewhere, but I doubt it'd be easy, or markettable enough for someone to take a chance on.

There was a game called Beyond Good & Evil where you worked to expose the conquering alien government on your planet and what bad things they did, that sort of dealed with such things. It was a very good game that was supposed to be a trilogy, but it sold horribly and the 2 sequels got scrapped. Also, I'm pretty sure Rugby D isn't a Republican, so dannylobb, you should probably stop going with that angle.

I realize that my post was worded a little awkwardly, but I didn't mean that he was republican. I mean that a lot of the people criticizing the game probably are and are criticizing strictly on partisan grounds.

Yet another Monopoly spinoff is nothing to get excited about, even if it's political and changed slightly. I agree with acs, it's a better game to talk about than actually play I'm sure.

I'm sure he and Micael Moore have a swell time playing that game.

Also any time I see or hear some say "wake up" it reminds me of the piece of racist crap on the Howard Stern show Daniel Carver "Wake up white people" grrrr creeps me out as well did this guy's comment
"This is my way of putting my political ideas forward, hoping people will wake up.
where's the skin crawling icon.
