Without looking at the link can I assume this is about inFAMOUS Second Son?

lol yes

Whether it's a sales pitch or just a scripted dialogue for the introduction to the game, a very good message still got to those game heads in the audience. That's always good. :)

As a gamer, I've been quite amazed

at how many games there have been lately that really dive deep into topics you would not normally find in major entertainment. The Assassin's Creed series is probably my favourite "read between the lines" story ever written in games or any other medium actually.

Equally amazing is the response over the NSABOXONE and it's in-home monitoring capabilities.

The Assassin's creed games

The Assassin's creed games are awesome and the historical accuracy of the stories are impressive. I did not play AC3 but I am stoked for Black Flag. Have you heard of the new game Watch Dogs?

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

AC

Missed the original Assassin's Creed, but played AC II, Brotherhood, and Revelations. Got AC III a little while ago, and really didn't care for it. The main character was not compelling, and motivations often seemed manufactured (or missing). There were some neat parts, but it paled in comparison to its predecessors. The naval battles were pretty good, which I'm sure they are using as their basis for Black Flag. I'll give it a go.

AC III jumped around a little on both sides of either fighting for liberty or casting the Founders as 'doing the right thing for the wrong reasons' (at best). I have no problem with suspension of disbelief and can take a fictional story based on historical figures and places, but..... yah.

Sorry, I went a bit off topic there. Got excited talking games

Watch Dogs brings to light the growing mass surveillance state. I give Ubisoft a lot of credit for using the game medium as a way of also educating players about important world issues. It's almost as if each game is its own seminar on its relative topic. These are the types of games I prefer to support not just mindless Call of Duty shooters. I have grown out of overly violent games, especially ones that don't give you an option of how to play. If I can get through most of a game stealthily, I'm down for that.

I used to watch a bunch of action (violent) movies and shows also but have grown out of them too. I spent a lot of time realizing how much negative "entertainment" there is out there and I just couldn't stomach it anymore. I personally do NOT believe that violent games cause people to be violent but they definitely can stress a person out. And I know from personal experience what stress can do to your health and it's never a positive outcome.

AC3 was a bit meh

Didn't have the same effect the ones before it did. They really are like virtual tours of historic places, though. Black Flag looks great. I've seen a bunch on Watch Dogs but I'm going to treat it like AC1 and pass on this one. Maybe the sequel will get my interest more. I'm a GTA fanatic actually so I'm counting the days until Sept 17 hahaha.

Sales pitch

Appealing to certain demographics. I wonder if he even feels that way or was pepper sprayed at all.
