I didn’t. This commercial is about a year old.
This is one of those things where I watch this and ask myself, “Did they even look at this before they posted it?”
It looks like the third installment was another bog standard, low rent RTS with the usual “kill or convert” moral choice system. It’s obviously wrapped up in sweetness and light, but it still manages to make hiring and then assaulting a prostitute in GTA3 look wholesome by comparison.
I also like the little back stories they gave hero characters, like, totally ripped from the headlines! (of Jack Chick tracts, naturally)
Anybody else play this game? I got through about four missions of the first game before I couldn’t handle the interstitial Christian Adult Contemporary soundtrack any longer. Back when we were a more visually oriented show, I was planning a show where we’d kick back for an hour and play games like these.
Actually, that still might be a cool event.
And wow, this commercial. Given my usual view of malice vs. idiocy, the usual lack of cultural awareness in the evangelical movement, and what I know about fans of the Left Behind novels and associated media, it would be really difficult for me to say that this is a commercial written and produced by racists.
However, it’s not difficult for me to say that this commercial would serve equally well as a teaser for “The Turner Diaries for Kids!”.
