A question for Germans about games!

bodies don't disappear quickly anymore in recent 'realistic' shooters :)

Zest >> Right, because even less people would have died in operation Downfall. Viewed from a different perspective, the bombs actually potentially prevented millions of additional casualties and protracted warfare. Any country in the same position would have done the same.

Nezbie: i don't want/try to rewrite history or imagine any alternative history, the fact is that they did drop the first nuclear fire at cities : couldn't they do any 'warning shot' on ocean or even on some japanese military bases ?

bombing cities was the 'standard' back in that dark time (more deathes at Dresden than at Hiroshima), but the nuclear power was another giant step, and be pragmatical, isn't the nuclear mushroom cloud visually scary and impressive enough to make any country surrender ?

that's simple : i consider any city bombing as a war crime, coming either from the bad guys (war losers) than the good guys (war winners).

the german games have also a bigger "warning sign" since some months:

zest, crime ok, but imagine whole country taking profits by living the economy of war (like US today ehh)... there is something more twisted here, leaving industrial areas far less damaged by allies than the city itself.
as a pole i could say - oh well, you forgot warsaw, but somehow i want to believe that not all germans were blinded by nazi propaganda.
in the end - green blood - epic fail to hitler :P.

aquaman: and of course, they will be full aware of the fact that any "warning sign" on such games actuall helps to sell it and make it more attractive. oh the hypocracy, when will it end

hehe "hypocracy", nice term, i'll retain it :D

there's another hypocrisy, on the sexual front.

for example, Far Cry 2 : well, congrats to Keops & Co for such a well-made hit, a milestone to my eyes, i was particulary impressed by the seamless open world, fierce realistic gameplay and beautiful unique map design.

but the light RPG features, they were quite lol : what about those 'angel' buddies who keep squatting your camp beds ? why can't you make any baby with them ?? seriously, even Fable 2 feature condoms! :p

my opinion is that FC2 has been castrated by the american market rules, aka more violence / no sex.

games may be censored in germany by silly green blood but german developers (and to an extent european and asian ones) are reputed to make sexy games.
