SOOOOOOOO...

how's about that World War II guys?

Actually, I don't see why everyone's tired of World War II. I mean, you'd think people would be tired of bald space marines by now but nooo, they just keep pumping them out.

But since Infinity Ward did CODIV, you think that these two teams (TreyArch and IW) are leapfrogging with the games? One does one year then the other does the next year? Aren't there rumors that a call of duty will be going into SPACE in fact? Then people can get their Bald Space marines and their World War II games from a single franchise!

I type I don't yell, unless my words have hidden sound effects in them. I also only type loud at the Evanllike folk and people with weird monsters as avatars who then try to cover them up with a cute bomberman.

Quote from: Enner
Actually, I think even with the caveman example there are some politics involved. There has to be some sort of government if they formed clans! :p

I had thought of that, but decided to simplify the statement for the benefit of my point. Most cavemen clans would probably be a broader family unit than anything else, and would thus take advantage of a somewhat natural hierarchy. While conflicts among cavemen may have been political in nature, I would tend to think that they were driven more so by base instincts. This would include survival, whether it be by defending said carcass, or attacking a neighboring clan and seizing their carcass. While the acquisition of "wealth" is still present, it probably could not be called out as greed or envy.

There are far more things one could do with space marines, for one. You could have anything from Alien(s) to Doom. The possible settings are simply far broader than any oversimplified WWII theater. I don't think they should necessarily be bald however. Bald is a pretty grodie look, after all. How about growing some hair, guys? I mean, really. Geez. I would, however, totally go for Call of Duty: Rasczak's Roughnecks! I'd have to get it for the PC though, as I am still far from sold on the idea of a console FPS, even though you'd think the Wii would work great for such...

Oh man. The Call of Duty 4 engine used to do a proper Starship Troopers (something based on the CG cartoon or, even better, the book). I would love that.

I seriously doubt Call of Duty: World at War is going to influence anyone's world view, the video game by it's very nature is escapist fantasy.

The art/entertainment you take in has a big effect on your perception of the world. The gap between fantasizing about something and doing something isn't as big as people think it is.

Resident Evil can make people afraid of windows. Driving games make people drive recklessly.

From my experience teens don't need a racing game to cause them to drive like crap!

On Morari's point, I think it's depressing that vidya game designers can envision a future with all kinds of teleportation and invisible shielding but not a world that's found a cure for baldness?

Maybe they just like baldness? Think of the bald! Maybe they like saving all that money on shampoo.

Maybe inflation in the future will make everyday conveniences prohibitively expensive, or a greedy cartel jacks prices up on everything. I can see it.

At least fictional scenarios don't have any real battles that developers feel they MUST include into every game (well, except for Star Wars...).

A friend of mine was in the Marines, and he kept his head shaved most of the time.  There's a simple reason: shaving your head is the cheapest and most convenient way to stay within regulations regarding hair length.  Trips to the barber cost money, and maintaining a haircut that's short enough for the Marine Corps could take a couple of haircuts per month.  Cutting your own hair and doing it well is too much of a bother for most people, but shaving is pretty hard to mess up.  All this adds up to a lot of real life Marines sporting the cue ball look, and video game developers striving for authenticity take it from there.  It doesn't hurt that a bald head is a lot easier to render than flowing locks, either.
