Cowboysfan-22 commented on What Happens When a War Photographer Plays The...:

I think the photographer meant that playing a game like this desensitizes people because we have no problem pressing the square button and putting a bat to someone's head. The fact is if we were actually in the situation we would have so many emotions running through our minds that we might question that decision forever. But again, it is a video game. A form of entertainment. Just like movies, the creators of these games are trying to give us a unique, story-driven experience rather than making sure we know how brutal war and death is. And it's also why it's rated M.. No kid should play this because of the brutality.



Cowboysfan-22 commented on Not Even Sony Understands Why the PS4 Is Selli...:

I think the reason is that people who are now in their early to late 20's now have jobs and can afford to buy it for themselves. I'm 26 and this is the fist console I've been able to get with my money. No more relying on mom and dad to come through for us at Christmas time. We are the video gaming generation and now that we have money in our pockets, we can get what we want



Cowboysfan-22 commented on Soapbox: Here's Why I Will Be Playing Journey ...:

I loved this article. It really shows how you can have an emotional attachment to a game. I'll never forget the first time I played Persona 4 Golden. I never wanted it to end. I've played it a couple more times, but nothing compares to the first time.



Cowboysfan-22 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of the Sony PlayStati...:

@MadchesterManc I couldn't agree more. And there were obviously some genres that Sony missed with the games they showed, so the people who are only in love with those genres feel jaded. Sure I didn't see much that excited me, but I'm not going to call Sony "awful" because of it. I'm sure I'll see more in the future that shows me what I'm looking for... like TGS.



Cowboysfan-22 commented on Talking Point: Should More Games Try to Teach ...:

I don't think it would be a problem as long as it's not the focal point of a game. You said it best; it needs to be a great game first and educational second. I liked how Persona 4 had you taking finals because it was part of the story line. It really added to immersion because I really wanted a good grade. That's the kind of stuff that works and it's rare to find a game that gets it right



Cowboysfan-22 commented on Battlefield Hardline's Beta Goes Harder for an...:

I actually like what I've played. The new modes are refreshing because it's not the same ol' military style battles. Being cops and robbers is always something we played as a kid. I love being a getaway vehicle, pulling up and yelling at somebody with the loot to "Get in!"



Cowboysfan-22 commented on Jimmy Fallon Shows Off Project Morpheus' Poten...:

I think it's great. A lot of people use video games to escape from the world around them and this would just help add to the immersion a lot of people search for. Of course there is a line you don't want to cross where you don't have an actual life.



Cowboysfan-22 commented on Madden NFL 15 Looks Practically Petrifying on ...:

I've owned Every Madden since 2000 so I could review it if you NEED someone to do it. ;) But in all seriousness, I'm expecting a big leap from last year's game. I got it for PS3 and PS4 and to be honest there wasn't much of a difference except that the menus ran smoother



Cowboysfan-22 commented on PS4's Power Advantage Over Xbox One Is Irrelev...:

I think the PS4's advantage in power might have affected some sales but the number is probably irrelevant when we're talking about 7 million sold. I'd say it's probably about the same as the number of sales affected by the DRM situation. How many Microsoft people actually jumped ship?
