in today’s GTFOHWTBS news…
One of our most dedicated MadMen found this on the web today and immediately sent it to MadMan Headquarters. At first we thought this was a bad joke…maybe a parody…but upon further research, we found that this is an actual game developed by 4Chan a racist independent gamer outfit.
Here is Gameranx’s breakdown of the game:
You play as Chris Dorner, who is in a log cabin surrounded by police officers who are trying to shoot at you. Your goal is to kill them, collecting ammo they drop and the occasional KFC chicken bucket, which restores your health (never said this game was classy). The game has multiple difficulties, and in each, the action progresses as more officers enter the cabin and try to shoot you and for some reason the place sets on fire.
If you make it to the end, the final boss is a Terminator. If you defeat the Governator a screen comes up that says “You can’t corner the Dorner.”
If I have to give some credit, it would be that the game actually presents a challenge, even on lower difficulties. It’s fairly fast-paced, and you need to utilize certain strategies in order to defeat the NPC’s and especially the final boss.
The game only has some value, however, if you agree that Dorner was a victim in this whole situation. Dorner is the hero, and you are playing as him. The subtext underlying Last Stand paints the police as monsters in the same way that the aliens in Doom were your antagonists. You are an action hero who is able to take down entire forces, and even defeat the Terminator (for some reason). Even worse is that the police are extremely racist, and are dropping you KFC chicken.
Without the subtext, the game is pretty stupid and brainless, as well as racist. If you disagree with the Internet consensus, then the game can be downright insulting. The music is obnoxious and annoying, including a song by Gangsta Rap that contains some… interesting lyrics.
Take a look and ask…SHOULD we be mad? or is it all in good fun?
