Brainwashing in videogames now?


Peter Davis

Now I’m a big fan of games, obviously, I’m a 14 -year-old, and thanks tho the f****d-up school curriculum, I have learnt more about World War II from the games Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, and Call of duty: World at War than I have from every history lesson I have sat through on the subject.

So I was on this website looking through the index of free full games to download, and I saw:

Eco Warriors: Invasion of the Necrobots

Acording to the descrition, it is set in southern Italy ”In a not so far future away…” At first, it had the makings of a normal game:-

Robots appearring in towns, woods and countrysides.
A dark enemy is conspirating to destroy us all blah, blah, blah………

But then, this popped up in the description:-

But there’s a new hope!

A team of warriors has been raised to defend Nature: The Eco Warriors!

A huge battle is getting closer…

and that’s the description…..but its basically about saving the environment, and the game is absolutely S***: here are some screenshots for your enjoyment:

I and the Libertarian Alliance and the blog, are NOT responsible for any damages to the mind or your PC or Mac or whatever you have, I did download it and try it, and my PC was undamaged. !DOWNLOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK!

not sure how to end this, so  here is a poll:

    I think that computer simulations can be a very good way of learning.

    Back in the early ‘Eighties, when I was living with your Dad, I spent many happy hours playing Crowther and Woods’ text-only “Colossal Cave Adventure” up to 12 hours a day on a homebuilt computer. I eventually reached “Master Adventurer” rank. You’re lucky to have such an intelligent, decent if eccentric Dad! >:-}

    Driving sims noticeably improve my driving. Carving fast turns on the NurburgRing in ‘Gran Turismo’ on my PlayStation PS3, or flying missions in a Eurofighter, or a Jedi Starfighter, is an excellent way to spend time.

    Which games are among your favourites? What are some of your favourite books?

    Best Wishes,

    Tony

  2. Tony,
    I remember (at least one of) the computer(s)! It didn’t really look like anything Peter uses today….

    Peter, I think you have to put [ ] around those lines of text for the pictures to load, but I’ve never used WordPress so they may have their own encoding. It could be ( ) instead.

    I remember my Sega Master System, from about fifteen years ago, it came with a built-in game, the only one I had until my pocket money was saved up. I stood in awe at the Sega Megadrive and it’s graphics, and now there are games like Grand Theft Auto, which I must have spent hours playing when I was lodging with a friend. I don’t have any games consoles anymore though, because I know that’s all I’d ever do. Yeah, they’re great stuff, computers. They Will Take Over one day.

    You should remember it! You helped to build it! A Digital Research Computers “BigBoard” from Arlington, Texas, with a Zilog Z-80 CPU and a whopping 64K (!) of memory. Allied to an ex-MoD PSU, an Alphamerics keyboard, a 12″ B&W Ball monitor and a Shugart 8″ IBM SS/SD floppy disk drive, it lasted me until I switched to an ATARI ST at the end of the ’80s. I still have them all.

    The Atari ST was outstanding — a brilliant design by Shiraz Shivji, wasted by the egomania of the Tramiels. I still use it with my Yamaha PSR-500 and -630 for MIDI sequencing work.

    Now if only I could sing like Enya… >:-}

    Best,

    Tony
