Only stopping in this thread long enough to say that at first I instinctively overlooked this headline, because the "slideshow of X things" format immediately made me think it was one of those awful Sponsored Links they killed the threads for, since all they get are complaints about how lame they are.

Saints Row 3 was all kinds of fun. Looking forward to 4.

Ah metal wolf chaos.  I had forgotten about that.  The videos on youtube of the president saying "I'm the president!!! Making the impossible possible is my job!!"  Or something like that as he was reentering the atmosphere in a ball of flame.
 
2013-07-04 03:13:03 PM  
I really, really wish Metal Wolf Chaos had been brought stateside. It just looks so stupidly, awesomely over the top.

I mean, the Amiercan President using his personal battlemech to defeat a coup launched by his vice president?

Surfing back to earth on a piece of a space weapon IN said mech?

Just.. so amazingly over-the-top.

Going to wait for a "complete" pack w/ all the DLC myself.

10. This game was released ONLY in Japan.
9. Konami is of course, Japanese
8. Japanese
7. Madden is half credit: One dev is American one is Canadian
6. Swiss gaming devs
5. ACIII was developed mostly in Canada
4. Saints has American devs, German publisher
3. COD gets full credit, American devs and publisher
2. Japanese
1. NBA Jam is all American, too.

So 2.5/10 are American made.

This. If Sony can make Cho Anaki available as a PS1 Classic digital download, Microsoft should be able to get this into the Xbox Store as a digital only game.

Is it really fair to put a game that hasn't been released on the list?
 
2013-07-04 08:46:50 PM  
List fails without EarthBound, which is a loving if quirky tribute to the West in general and America in particular.

It is also the best RPG of all time. OF ALL TIME.

List fails on many counts.

Especially for missing The Political Machine.

Or Sam and Max S1E4: Abe Lincoln Must Die!
i.imgur.com

Or the C&C: Red Alert series (where the President is your boss if you're playing Allies)
i.imgur.com

Just to name a few!

The inclusion of Madden and NBA Jam on the list are a pretty big cop-out. It's stupid to say a game is American because it has American-style sports or a couple of hidden characters who look like prominent politicians. But then, the whole idea of the list is dumb anyway, given how many forgettable games are named.

World in Conflict is the most American game. It's Red Dawn the movie played as a RTS game.

A game where you deal with the logistics of shipping humanitarian aid to north korea.

My god I loved that game, the story was, really good and the gameplay was simple and quick paced. Why wasn't there a sequel?
