YAY Gamepolitics! Let's show them how biased we can truely be! Remember we only post things about vile Republicans no one dares to speak ill of their lord and savior here Barrack Obama who is god

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Hate to break it to you, but it is GP's right to be as biased or not as they want. Besides, it is a fact that a higher percentage of people reading this tend to swing liberal, regardless of whether it has to do with Age, Education, Location, or whatever. If you don't like it, don't read.

I, for one, don't listen to or read anything by Fox News, because of thier rediculous conservative bias, not to mention, they are on the bottom rung with regards to how they represent Video Games.

Anyways, I also wanted to point out that your posts practically OOZE with ignorance and stupidity. They kind of have a "Hannity and Limbaugh said this so it must be true!" vibe. There's a reason the country is in the process of moving left, and you are a perfect example of why.

I can't wait until Nov. 4th Rolls around and your "Maverick" and his Woman are put in thier place by the American People. It's about time, too, considering America has been SO far behind the rest of the Western World with regard to Health Care, Economics, Social Policies, and Ethics. It's no wonder Europe thinks our country is nothing but ignorant rednecks..

I hate Barack Obama's love of gun control and I know I'm not the only here that does so. Although if you know of a flash game that makes fun of Obama or a machima vidoe let us know and it'll probably be posted (in fact I wanna see some Obama bashing from someone other than Mad Magazine).

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Yee-haw!  Let's put the Republicans back in so we can all keep our guns.  They'll come in real handy too when the economy REALLY goes down the crapper after a couple more years of the same failed policies, and we're left to fight over the last remaining fuel for our SUVs.

Yeeeeee-hawwwww!

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Remember kids it's Ok to engage in stereotypes if the other guy has a different opinion than you do.

For the record I still am not sure who I'm going to vote for.

Is it just me, or do most gamers lean toward the Democratic party?

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

People under the age of 35 tend to vote more Democratic whereas those over 35 tend to vote more Republican. I'm sure you know that most gamers under the age of 35.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

And majority of the world too.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Hilarious! And full of that delicious political satire we've all come to love. I'm getting hungry for 'more of the same' goodness just through watching! XD

Game on, brothers and sisters.

MattsworknameEh, I love the new batmobile personally, it's a blast to mess aroudn with. Plus, the game is set in a situation that mroe or less leaves batman with no choice but to go full force. And even then, it still shows him doing all he can to limit casualties.07/01/2015 - 11:38pm
Andrew EisenAgreed. Luckily, we don't seem to be in danger of that of late. No one's suggesting, for example, that tanks shouldn't be in video games, only that the tank in Arkham Knight is poorly implemented and out of place from a characterization standpoint.07/01/2015 - 11:27pm
MattsworknameConfederate flag, Relgious organizations, etc etc. Andrew isnt[ wrong, just remember not to let that mentality lead to censorship.07/01/2015 - 11:20pm
Mattsworknamefind offensive or disturbing, and that mindset leads to censorship. It's all well and good to say "This would be better IF", just so long as we remember not to let it slide into "This is offensive, REMOVE IT". IE , the current issues surroundign the07/01/2015 - 11:19pm
MattsworknameAndrew and goth both have points, and to that point, I'll say. Saying somethign is improved by changing something isn't a problem, on that I agree with , but at the same time, on of the issues we have in our society is that we want to simply remove things07/01/2015 - 11:18pm
Andrew EisenSee? Suggestions for improvements that involve taking things away do not mean the work is garbage or performing poorly, critically or commercially.07/01/2015 - 9:29pm
Andrew EisenSkyward Sword is spiff-a-rific but it would be an improved experience if the game didn't explain what each item and rupee was every single time you picked them up!07/01/2015 - 9:27pm
Andrew EisenHere's another: De Blob is a ton of fun but it would be improved without motion controls. Incidentally, THQ heard our cries, removed motion controls for the sequel and it was a better game for it!07/01/2015 - 9:24pm
Andrew EisenI'll give you an example: Arkham Knight is a ton of fun but the tank sucks and the game would be even better without it.07/01/2015 - 9:23pm
Goth_SkunkWell clearly we're diametrically opposed about that.07/01/2015 - 9:03pm
Andrew EisenNot even remotely true.07/01/2015 - 8:59pm
Goth_SkunkIt is, if the suggestion involves taking something away from a product in order to make it better.07/01/2015 - 8:49pm
Andrew EisenOffering suggestions for improvement does not mean that the work in question is garbage or not doing fine.07/01/2015 - 8:21pm
Goth_SkunkIf their products were garbage, they wouldn't be as praiseworthy as they are.07/01/2015 - 8:08pm
Goth_SkunkAnd Andrew, I really don't think GRRM or the producers of the Game of Thrones TV show need anyone to tell them what to do to make their products better.They appear to be doing just fine on their own.07/01/2015 - 8:07pm
Goth_SkunkThe only thing not worth talking about, is what shouldn't be talked about.07/01/2015 - 7:47pm
Goth_Skunk@Infophile: It could be a reason, if I were wrong. I'm not.07/01/2015 - 7:44pm

Andrew EisenHeh, just had our (IGN's) journalistic integrity called into question over two typos on one of the Wikis (which are editable by the readers).07/01/2015 - 6:08pm
Matthew Wilson@tech this isnt the only stupid tax in recent months though. they were adding a commuter tax as well. if they continue doing crap like this, they will run in to the same issues as Detroit.07/01/2015 - 5:34pm
