@csward Yeah... let's turn a game where you stab people in the throat with a hidden blade into toys for kids. Makes sense!

Lovely... it's a shame the game is nothing like this.

@nate1222 You sound like you'd get along well with anarchists. If there's any point of view that "preaches" freedom and does so outside the hypocritical spectrum of the left and right, then it's the anarchist one. Of course, no state likes the idea of anarchism and the masses have such a distorted view of it that they think it's either a group of kids who want to vandalize or a bunch of evil schemers.

@nigelholden True, it can be more difficult to see past that loud minority when they themselves make statements, which they claim can apply to all members of their group. Still, I think it's always best to research something before choosing to side with or against it.

@nigelholden I see what you mean and you definitely have a point, but I stand by my argument. Think of it this way: someone from a Western country has had only bad experiences with immigrants from Eastern Europe... if they say that all immigrants from "x" region are "y", then are they not being xenophobic? Even if their opinion is based on experiences (that they have been unfortunate enough to only meet pricks who come from there)?

I think the same applies to this. Even if someone has only negative experiences with a certain group, then they should be smart enough to realize that not all of its members are the same.

It always pisses me off when people judge a whole group based on a small minority within it. Feminism - at its very core - is a good thing. It seeks equality between men and women. So, if you simply say that you're against feminism, then I think it's quite obvious you're being sexist - as by saying this you're also telling us that you are opposed to equality of women and men. However, there is indeed an extremely loud minority of self-proclaimed "radical" feminists who are essentially just female sexists. That smaller group of people deserve your resentment, but the majority do not. Most feminists really do seek equality.

As for the video: it is a good one, though I kept thinking when watching it that Danny was trying to stay "neutral", which comes off as a bit annoying.

@nickyparmar92 North America, as a continent (USA + Canada, where the PS4 has been released), has a population of 352 326 300 - that's over 350 million people. In total, about 2 million PS4 and X-One consoles have been sold in North America… that’s around 1.8% of the region’s population. Sure, that's a lot for two different products, but it still means that the vast majority of the population does not own either of these consoles. Besides, the fact that these people have bought a very expensive console does not mean that they had the money for it. They could have been saving up, used borrowed money, bought it on credit or used some other method. And even if they had the money for it right there and then, it means that many of these people won't be able to buy anything else really expensive for the rest of the year. Moreover, some companies may be buying the consoles in bulk.

Finally, since many of the European countries where the consoles are being released are arguably suffering more from the financial crisis than the US and Canada are, it is unlikely that Sony and Microsoft will be able to sell larger quantities of their consoles there (proportionate to the number of people living in Europe) than they did in North America. So, in other words, I'm saying your argument is invalid.

@Bumblebee1138 Yeah, I get what you mean. I've played and completed CoD (and its expansion), CoD2, CoD4: Modern Warfare and CoD: World at War. They just get less and less unique - but I have not completed any others from the series. The multiplayer is fairly simple in all of the games I listed, but can be entertaining for a few days due to the sheer action. The singleplayer is the most powerful in the very first game, though the atmosphere is also pretty cool in World at War. To be honest, you can find much more exciting and more ambitious experiences in other video games. I haven't played Ghosts so I may be wrong - but from what I've seen and read of it, it just seems to be the same mindless blockbuster with some pretty set-pieces. None of the games are necessarily outright bad, but they just got less and less unique with time. They were also always very Americentric. If you feel that you really want to get one of them, then I'd still recommend the first one because it is a classic and back then it did feel a lot more fresh. It was probably the only game out of the series that I would classify as fantastic for its time of release.

@Bumblebee1138 The first one from 2003... I thought that was obvious.

@Spazzh20 Kevin is an awesome reviewer, I agree - but he didn't write this review. He says at the very start of it that he is standing in for the reviewer to do the video review for him.
