Jocuri interzise de americani :)

Da dusi sunt astia - citesc pe yahoo topul jocurilor interzide la americani - in frunte e Carmaghedonu, mama ce mai calcam pe vremuri :))

Articolul intreg il gasiti aici.

Carmageddon (SCI)

It's not hard to see why Carmageddon ran into trouble. Although it has the outward appearance of a conventional racing game, underneath its veneer-thin skin beats the heart of a vicious, violent and downright irresponsible smash-em-up racer where running over pedestrians isn't just accepted, it's actually encouraged. In other words, it's tremendous fun. Initially banned by censors in the UK, the ruling was eventually overturned on appeal -- but for a while, British consumers looking for high-octane, pedestrian-crushing thrills had to make do with a version of the game that replaced the passers-by with green-blooded zombies.

Wolfenstein 3D (Apogee Software)

Classic first-person shooter Wolfenstein 3D ran into a heap of trouble at its release in Germany, where stringent legislation prevents the sale of material depicting symbols associated with the Nazi administration. Castle Wolfenstein, where the game was set, prominently featured swastika logos, and the game used the Nazi party's anthem as its theme song. This didn't sit well with the German courts, which banned various versions of the game in the mid-90s.

Mortal Kombat (Midway)

One of the original video game nasties, this classic beat-em-up is pretty pedestrian by modern standards. But its release on home consoles, complete with all the over-the-top violence that's become its trademark, came close to prompting a Congressional investigation into the game industry's tactics. Fortunately, the industry association at the time had the foresight to form a self-regulating body that would issue age recommendations to all video games before they went on sale, preventing violent or explicit games from falling into the hands of minors. The Entertainment Software Rating Board, or ESRB, born.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Take 2)

San Andreas shot to fame for all the wrong reasons following the release of the PC version of the game in 2005. Already a lightning rod of the games-are-evil crowd, the game's notoriety exploded when it emerged that it contained a hidden mini-game, dubbed "Hot Coffee," featuring the star, um, getting affectionate with an admirer. Not only were they both clothed, but you couldn't actually play the mini-game without modifying the software, which wasn't exactly easy. None of this mattered to the ESRB, however, which slapped an "Adults Only" rating on the title, and it disappeared from shelves until Rockstar removed the offending content and re-released the game.

Pokemon (Nintendo)

Nintendo's smash hit Pokemon series earned a ban not for its devastating addictiveness or terrible TV show spinoffs, but for promoting Zionism. Who'd do something like that? That Mecca of religious tolerance, Saudi Arabia, that's who. The Islamic state's religious authorities handed down a ban on all Pokemon material in 2001 over the game's use of six-pointed Star of David symbols and alleged encouragement of gambling. Pikachu, I ban you!

BMX XXX (Acclaim)

Although this spin-off of Acclaim's Dave Mirra-endorsed extreme sports games gained the reputation of being crammed to the gunwales with nudity, you actually had to play some considerable distance into the game to unlock the "goods." Thankfully, the game was so crummy that nobody bothered. That didn't stop the notoriously harsh Australian equivalent of the ESRB from banning the game, although it was released in uncensored form on the Xbox and Gamecube in other territories.

StarCraft II

Huray sau nu prea cica apare Stacraft 2 !

Site-ul oficial:

Vad ca sunt gramada de chestii noi - hm, cred ca din cauza graficii prea 3d pentru gustul meu nu prea o sa fiu entuziast. Sper sa reziste pe servere cel original cat mai mult :)

Call of Duty 4

A aparut Call of Duty 4. Iata ce se zice pe

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare wakes us up faster than a cup of coffee and plunges us into over the top combat scenarios in which terrorists launch rockets, unload countless rounds of ammunition and chuck grenades faster than Kobe Bryant fires jump shots. Just peeking around a corner results in five, sometimes ten evildoers assaulting our location with more lead than Chinese toys, and although we died numerous times, we never aborted the mission, because no matter how frustrated we became, COD4 is too damn good to ignore.

Unlike previous Call of Duty games, which take place during World War II, this fourth installment occurs in modern times, where a psycho named Zakhaev intends to revive the collapsed Soviet Union by nuking the U.S. Your tour of duty features two intertwining campaigns that have you controlling a U.S. soldier in the Middle East and a British grunt deep inside Russia, the former drawing parallels between itself and the war in Iraq, with you laying waste to an insurgency and hunting down Zakhaev's crony, a terrorist named Al-Asad. Battles take place across a host of beautiful locations, including a large ocean tanker, dilapidated Middle Eastern cities, inside a TV station and a Russian village. Sometimes, you'll go in guns blazing with stereotypical American bravado, or you'll patiently sneak through an abandoned Russian city, not only avoiding enemies, but also the packs of wild dogs that'll rip out your throat within seconds of tackling you. The entire campaign, all six to seven hours of it, rests within a slick presentation, a story told through satellite images, holographic pictures of military equipment and dramatic music. It looks amazing.

Instead of fighting alone, you'll have fellow soldiers at your side that actually prove useful. Yes, your actions push the story forward, but your buddies are smart enough to take cover, flush out the enemy and, for the most part, avoid getting killed, though you'll soon learn that casualties are inevitable, thanks to ruthless artificial intelligence with almost perfect aim and a hatred for westerners. Stick behind cover and they'll follow or toss grenades, sometimes three at a time right into your lap. Or perhaps they'll snipe you through cover, because as you'll discover, there's a huge difference between hard cover (walls of stone, tanks) and soft (sheet metal). Oftentimes, we found ourselves waiting for an enemy to show us his head for a clear shot, and then remembered we could simply blast through the wall.

Topul celor mai vandute jocuri - pe wikipedia

Conform unui clasament wikipedia, cele mai vandute jocuri de PC sunt:
Lista mai cuprinzatoare o puteti gasi la

Ce parere aveti ?

RTS - Strategie in timp real (Real Time Strategy)

Conform wikipedia acest gen de joc de calculator este caracterizat prin jocuri de razzboi care au loc in timp real, unde adunarea de resurse, construirea de baze, dezvoltarea tehnologiei şi control direct asupra unităţilor individuale sunt componente cheie.

Jocurile de strategie în timp real nu implică ture ca jocurile pe ture. În schimb, jocul progresează în timp real; este un joc continuu spre deosebire de cele pe ture, şi toţi jucătorii pot da ordine în orice moment. Părţi integrale ale gameplay-ului sunt de asemenea aspectele legate de economie şi producţie, şi cu toate că confruntările militare joacă un rol important, ele sunt foarte stilizate şi nu pun accent pe simularea războaielor reale.

RPG - Jocurile video de rol (Role Playing Games)

Conform unui articol de pe wikipedia cica una din caracteristicile principale ale jocurilor tip RPG este povestea jocului. Personajul începe de obicei ca un prizonier ales de soartă să înfrunte răul (cum e cazul în seria de jocuri Elder Scrolls sau Gothic) sau ca un luptător în căutare de aventuri (ca în NeverWinter Nights). Pe parcursul jocului personajul interacţionează cu o serie de alte personaje (NPC - non playing characters) care îl ajută să-şi dezvolte abilităţile sau îi dau misiuni de îndeplinit. Îndeplinirea misiunilor primite de la NPC-uri este în general necesară pentru terminarea jocului. Misiunile primite sunt de obicei legate de povestea jocului. Unele misiuni sunt introduse de creatorii jocului doar pentru amuzament sau pentru a ajuta personajul să acumuleze experienţă.
