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...

Goth_SkunkIt is not conducive to a welcoming, open-minded environment that this site is supposed to be.05/30/2015 - 2:33am
Goth_SkunkIt's highly annoying. It adds nothing of note to any topic and is of no benefit to anyone. And the fact that it has not been stopped up until now is giving me the impression that site administration condones it.05/30/2015 - 2:32am
Goth_SkunkIron Patriot goes out of their way to attack, mischaracterize, dehumanize, and otherwise derail any topic where an individual is even remotely considering siding with GamerGate.05/30/2015 - 2:31am
Goth_SkunkI believe there is sufficient evidence to accuse Iron Patriot of harassment. I would like something done about it.05/30/2015 - 2:20am

WonderkarpI'd love a real Conker. the Project Spark thing I am looking at. If they provide atleast 25 hours of original conker crazyness that I dont have to build.....05/29/2015 - 7:55pm
Matthew WilsonI think he was talking about wanting a real one.05/29/2015 - 7:19pm
Andrew EisenKarp - A real Conker game or are you content with that Project Spark thing?05/29/2015 - 7:18pm
Matthew Wilson if they are smart, they hire Hideo Kojima, give him his own studio, and rebew the partnership with Guillermo del Toro.05/29/2015 - 7:04pm
MattsworknameReally hope silent hills gets made, it really deserves to be released, and konami is being stupid riht now so if MS wants to take it, more power to them.05/29/2015 - 6:32pm
Wonderkarp80% complete? Well. If there was ever a reason to make me buy a Xbone, that would be it. That and Conker05/29/2015 - 5:24pm
Matthew Wilsonif true, a very smart move.05/29/2015 - 5:24pm

WonderkarpRegion locking annoys me. I cant tell you how many Japanese games I want to to play but need to own another console and learn japanese to play them!05/29/2015 - 5:13pm
MattsworknameThis kinda thing is why I have a very negitive view on things like region locking and games not being released universially. it creates problems like this where the game gets reduced as a result .05/29/2015 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenNeither will the 3DS. Wait, WHAT?! http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/28/samurai-warriors-chronicles-3-does-not-include-nintendo-costumes-in-the-west/05/29/2015 - 4:33pm
Andrew EisenSamurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will not include the Nintendo-themed costumes when it hits the Vita in NA and EU next month.05/29/2015 - 4:32pm
Wonderkarpthe brilliance of the Wii U is they could offer 2 games in 1 package. Tablet/pro controller controls, and then a flipped game with WiiMote. Add a master quest too it too05/29/2015 - 4:18pm
Andrew EisenTwilight Princess would be my favorite if it didn't have a few notable design issues. But yeah, those few things aside, it absolutely trumps Ocarina in most every way.05/29/2015 - 4:11pm
WonderkarpTwilight Princess is my favorite Zelda. Its a legit sequal to Ocarina, enhancing everything Ocarina had, and I hope there's a HD Remaster with gamecube controls. Make it Nintendur!05/29/2015 - 4:08pm
