@poemann79: What is the kill-ratio in those wars, what about the "collateral damage" and all of the non-combatants which are getting blown up left-right-and-center. 24/7, 365 days a year - as US troops are deployed in many places and actively fighting (not to mention drones, one of which is launching missiles right this very moment - as you're reading this comment - by some guy chilling behind a computer screen, killing).

What about those families. Same as us, people born on this Earth. Mothers, cousins, sisters, brothers... All in mourning, except they're not at some barbecue pool party, but are probably running for their lives, or something. Trapped under a destroyed building, waiting to die, as there is NOBODY coming. No Delta Force and no Marines to save them. Crying in the dark. How about it.

Just reading this now, although I should probably find a new(er) game to comment on... This had been perfectly fine, btw. In-game advertising on billboards and on clothes and whatever - great, who cares!.. As part of the game, put the ads wherever the hell you want. On top of the signs on taxis, labels on shops and clothes - it's all good. Why not. Like other comments said, this should affect the price of subscription; cool, what's the problem - no issues, whatsoever.

@flint101_7: Has that ever happened, no idea (& can't be bothered to look)?.. Probably never, right. I imagine they had been holding on, looking for someone to sell it to - and in the end, didn't care about scr3wing everyone who had paid for it out of their money, meh. ;-/

@StSk8ter29: Geez, I'm being -really- retarded now, answering a bunch of comments made years ago, but I'm proud to say that I've never played Wow - OR, for example, StarCraft II - even though I'm playing teh Star Wars (The Old Republic) MMO & Tomb Raider and Deus Ex and CS:GO and a bunch of others (too many to count, over the years, no joke - but, mostly single-player, at a relaxed pace). Been able to stay away from total idiocy, mostly! :)

@twashington9737: It's for kids, or fanatics... It's one thing to join a map and wreak havoc (and have 'em -great- stats saved on web sites and whatnot) & another to have to keep playing, because the next guy will get those bonus weapons which weren't there when you were playing. They do it to hook people, to be addicted. It, really, should be illegal - if you think about it.

@Zloth2: Somehow I ended up here and now I'm making replies to 7-year-old comments, lolz. It's true, about the Matrix games. Total fail, all of 'em, from the start. Kind of surprising, but considering how only the first movie was any good... Not so much, heh.

Edit: The other two had some GREAT scenes (& even ideas), but something had happened along the way...

*Legendary, even (but, still. :))

@BloodMist: Even 7 years ago, "staying afloat" was a -seriously- lame excuse. How much does it cost to keep servers online, $1000 a month? $5000? Have everyone give a dollar. Covered.

... Not able to do it, divert some money from their million-dollar projects towards it. One new Bentley less, for the CEO and it can stay online for another decade. How about that.

@Darkon_X: Like throwing money in the wind.

@sizzlingdviper: Of course they did (abandon everyone and everything). Once the new hardware is out, they also want to sell new developer tools and new everything... They are purposefully not making backward-compatibility. This is why I haven't spend a single cent on anything other than PCs, since owning a Game Boy in the 90s. Learned my lesson early.
