Millions of people across the globe go online every second of the day. Green Man Gaming (GMG) is a UK based digital retailer (but open to users globally) for games that allows people to pick up a huge range of top titles at very competitive prices. You’ll always find something on sale with Green Man Gaming. My son does like Minecraft a lot. He also has an interest in setting up a Youtube channel – I think he has already done this but has only made a handful of videos. He is very inspired by some people who have made lot of money by making videos and is always telling me about how rich they are. As for DeviantArt, I have looked this up before because one of the other commenters mentioned it. So yes, I understand that you can be creative on a PC – I can see also that this can lead on to other opportunities and career options. However, that must be different from simply playing games – to design something of your own can’t be the same as just playing a game already designed by someone else.

I once played the vanilla” Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Xbox 360 and was pretty stoked at what the game delivered considering I knew next to nothing about it. Never had a computer powerful enough to play the originals and was only going by recommendations from friends who acted like it was Metal Gear Solid’s second coming. They certainly were not pulling my leg and I was all but enamored by the level of depth this game went to. Multiple ways of getting through the various stages, dialogue options ps3 that were not long winded and kept the story flowing, and even the option to NOT KILL A SINGLE ENEMY if I wanted to. Something that is very rare in games these days (or at least it was before this game). The shooting wasn’t perfect but it worked well enough to make those moments where sneaking wasn’t possibly survivable. The ability to complete some side quests before they even begin is hilarious as well as brilliant. Hell the game HAS side quests, that’s a plus in my book already.

Consider this: The Call of Duty instalments that cross their paths with the World War 2 era must always remain historically correct, and the war has been heavily documented over the years, except there are not many people alive who fought during the war. This makes creating a realistic World War 2 experience difficult for game developers, as it is difficult to truly capture the narrative qualities of an authentic World War 2 battle for a fearsome victory against relentless enemy forces. Hollywood struggle to capture World War 2 in a way that hasn’t already been seen before, and this only leaves satirical natured ripping on the WW2 tragic battlefield operations events, and this has long been shifted from Hollywood’s activities towards making stories that are told on the back of WW2. Call of Duty, one of the few surviving WW2 shooter franchises, has also drifted from its earlier identity in recent years, but now there has been the much-awaited return to World War 2 across all entertainment mediums.
