Comment of the Week: Thinking Caps On
They say you can’t please everyone, which is never more true than when you’re writing on the internet. Still, we couldn’t help but smile at this reader reaction to Phil Hornshaw’s look at Spec Ops: The Line and Far Cry 3, and the way both games seem to criticize the very audience that plays them:
“Gamefront is so dump and they think too much for nothing! A true waste of time and not a real news tss what a bunch of losers.”
The site has certainly been known to publish the occasional “think piece,” to use a journalistic euphemism, but hopefully that’s a feature, not a bug. If we do bang on a little bit about games like Far Cry 3, it’s because we’re interested in their complexities, subtexts, and implications, and we hope you are too. If you’re not, feel free to leave a misspelled comment to that effect, but be warned — it might be ignored.
