Its a game, virtual, and you bought a shooter, I haven't finished but regardless, you had some idea as to what you were getting into. Guns don't kill, people do. Show me a RL gun that pulls its own trigger while plotting terrible ideas and locations then get back to me. Yes what happened is horrendous, especially involving Children, but this forum on a game isn't the place to express your remorse for in-game decisions. Side-note: Psychological and medical communities have mountains of research disproving the "link" that video games cause violence. Correlation > Causality in this case. /rant
But, yes, 2012 single-player GOTY. BF3 still dominates in multi-player IMO, even if it was 2011 original release
My comment wasn't intended as some call for gun control, or that I felt remorse for shooting digital douchebags in a shooter
My point was simply, for me, I just became uncomfortable with the thoughts of some of the things in game that's all. If you've gotten far enough in the game (or read the interview I mentioned or other such articles) then you might know what I am referring to. I certainly will not stop playing the game, nor other games where there is simulated violence perpetrated by guns in said games. I just felt...weird let's say in Far Cry 3 at the time I wrote my comment about it. It'll pass like any other experience any of us feel or take with us in any game we play.
Same can be said with a game like Journey or even Fez, especially since those games elicit specific responses on purpose. Uh, I don't want to seem like I'm ranting either so I'll just shut up now
