One Final Bush-Bashing Game

January 20, 2009 -

As George W. Bush turns over the reigns to Barack Obama today, online gamers will have their final chance to zing the 43rd president.

Goodbye, Mr. Bush is a whack-a-mole sort of affair in which players hurl objects at a cartoon version of Dubya which pops up in various locations on the White House lawn. Weapons of choice include eggs, candy and, of course, shoes.

The game, like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten. But there is one clever moment. Players who choose Weapons of Mass Destruction to hurl at Bush are informed that WMD can't be found.

Hmmm... Where have we heard that before?

The people who are chortling at their own wit for making these games will soon be snarling and screeching whenever anyone dares to disagree with Barack Obama.  Just wait and see that I'm right.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

The internet is certainly having a collective orgasm over his innauguration speech.

Statements like, "I can listen to him speak for days," from straight men are frightening. He's a President, people, not the Second Coming.  And he's the President of one of the biggest and powerful Federal Governments in the history of the world.  Optimism is great, but we must watch our government closely.  If GW  showed up anything, it was that.  I have no issues with what Obama's done as of yet, only disagreeing vehemently over his SecEd pick.  Chicago public schools are shit, and the guy that put them there is now a Cabinet member.  Call me crazy, but that's a terrible idea.

You'd think that if someone was trying to throw candy at you you'd stay still instead of moving around so much.

If Bush is soon forgotten that will be an unfortunate event for this country.  Learning from history requires remembering, not forgetting.  He might not be the worst but he is right down there.  He consistently showed his lack of respect for the constitution.

But I guess I'm just a conspiracy theorists because I don't give any credit to a criminal like Bush.  Me and my silly desire to have a president that upholds the constitution instead of implementing policy that is in direct conflict with it.  ::tinfoil hat::  Bush was a terrible president and I'll always remember how did the exact opposite of what he promised to do in 2000.

"The game, like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten."

Wow.  People never forget polarizing figures.  Come on Dennis, seriously, what are you thinking?  Love or hate, GW Bush won't be easy to forget.

Frankly, I bet Bush is relieved to get all the scorn and responsibility off his shoulders.

If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

Everyone takes Bush too harshly. He's not the greatest president ever, but he's not the worst.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

You could argue that he's been the worst president of the 21st century so far.


If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

You can also argue that he's the best then...

Today is a day for Change. And the first thing I'd like to see changed here is the stop to reporting on every shitty little flash game that is created. Especially ones that are rip-offs of simple and old games like whack-a-mole and space invaders. Just because you use a parody of space invaders to propel a personal message, does not mean you respect games as a medium of expression, and thus deserve no applause or recognition from the gaming communtiy.

Good example: PETA.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

One Final Game? I doubt that.

....like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten. Again, i doubt that.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

Yea thats what I thought as well...

This is just the last one while he was still in office...

 

There will be mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnny more... hopefully one that depicts the true story of him losing all his money and being sent to prison... through if it is a true story than that will probably be before his brother/daughter/wife becomes president in 8 years and pardons him...

Andrew EisenThat depends on a lot. Were you bleeding at the time you requested to leave or did you want to leave work to go to the doctor over an incident that happened on a different day that you didn't file an incident report for?11/23/2014 - 3:21pm
Neo_DrKefkaThat would be a major OSHA violation correct?11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
Neo_DrKefkaOff topic but I was at work and went over to the first aid kit to get some eye drops. I look at my hand and noticed blood on my hands. My employers said their is no incident report and they won't send me to see a doctor and that I am abandoning my job.11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
MaskedPixelanteThe more I hear about AC Unity being rushed out, the more I think Ubisoft was telling the truth about why they couldn't add female co-op models.11/23/2014 - 1:14pm
IanCI wouldnt say the 360/PS3 version were superior. They were different games.11/23/2014 - 11:49am
MechaTama31It's hard to rank my top 5 against eachother, but they would include Ghostbusters, Back to the Future (all of it), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Shawshank Redemption, and The Princess Bride.11/23/2014 - 11:09am
Andrew EisenTrue, but I liked the fact that rather than do a crappy looking version of the PS3/360 version, it went with an art style more suited to the Wii's strengths.11/23/2014 - 12:26am
Wonderkarpif I had the money, I'd buy one of those expensive proton pack replicas11/22/2014 - 11:25pm
Wonderkarpthats the wii version though. the PS3/360 version is far superior.11/22/2014 - 11:19pm
Andrew EisenOdd that there was no hose connecting the thrower to the backpack. Was there just no more horsepower left in the Wii to animate it? And did seriously no one on the dev or QA team notice the Ghostbusters patch on the player's sleeve was backwards?11/22/2014 - 11:17pm
Andrew EisenI played it one the Wii and rather liked it.11/22/2014 - 11:15pm
Neo_DrKefkaGhostbusters on the PS3 and Xbox is Ghostbusters III for me. It was a short but wonderful experience.11/22/2014 - 11:13pm
Andrew EisenGhostbusters is my number one but the other films in my top 5 are Blues Brothers, Nightmare Before Christmas, Little Shop of Horrors (the Frank Oz one) and Jaws.11/22/2014 - 11:05pm

Wonderkarpno pics though cause I'm going to be moving soon hopefully so I'm not too keen on working on it, other than buying some stuff.11/22/2014 - 10:33pm
WonderkarpGhostbusters, Alien, and Aliens make up my top 3 favorite films. Its not a Coincidence that Sigourney Weaver is my favorite Actress11/22/2014 - 10:31pm
Andrew EisenIf you do build a game room you're proud of, do post pics.11/22/2014 - 10:31pm
Andrew EisenGhostbusters! My favorite movie.11/22/2014 - 10:21pm
