This is a quote from Morgan on a thread in the Video Game Hardware forum:
I would enjoy killing myself, killing the evil side of me
Its almost cathartic
In all seriousness I don't see much of an issue with this. To quote From Dusk Till Dawn "Its not a big fucking deal until someone makes it a big fucking deal".
I have no doubt those that are already out to censor and stop the sale of so called "violent games" or in the case of the FPS genre "murder simulators" will see this as an opportunity and an advantage to continue their fight. Alas, I could care less what they think anyway.
In actuality I think the majority of people that will be using this feature will use it in the exact way the you mentioned. Just to sit with their buddies, having fun, laughing at themselves blowing each other away in a game. A simple outlet like all games are.
has the face in the game feature EVER worked? I have tried it with VERY complicated engines such as the EA Sports FITG system, which they use for the actual games (Granted this was 2 years ago, the 2001 version), and it worked just HORRIBLY. Has anyone ever seen a system where it worked?
I guess you could do it if you know EXACTLY what you're doing with a PC game.
Anyway, I always wanted to put my face in a game so I could play AS MYSELF, not so I could kill myself (or others). Whats wrong with personalizing your character? Imagine an online RPG where YOUR FACE is YOUR FACE!!!
Sort of connected to this topic is another idea I always had. Whenever I play online FPS games (I've had some good LAN games of CS and some other games at school, and during class w/the teacher!) I don't know the maps. I always wanted to make a map of my house or even the school, simply because I know those places. But then again, if I make a map of my school and start killing people in it...well, you do the math. Needless to say, I would only do something like this because it would pull me into the game more, not because I want to kill people I know.
And besides, would you rather I kill the kids I don't like in a videogame or in real-life? By taking the game away, you leave me with one (although more extreme and stupid) choice.
I've done this on a couple of PC games before, but the results were only so-so. I think the first time I tried it was Need For Speed Porsche. It was pretty cool to see yourself in the car, or other freaks. I had made a Chewbacca head for one of the drivers, for instance.
*Personalization = fun.
*look ma - a six-syllable word!
I had monster rancher for the playstation 2 and you could put your pic on there. It looked pretty damn clear. I loved it when I could put my pic on mine and just kick ass....
