Dead Space 2 is Using Your Mother

Posted on Sunday, January 16 @ 11:40:15 Eastern by
I'm nearly to the end of Dead Space (the first), and I can't really contain my excitement for Dead Space 2. Really, it looks to be a ton of fun, and if EA's latest marketing plan is to believed, it'll have just as much violence, suspense, and general yuckiness.

Before you watch, there's something we should all consider. I've been over 17 years of age for quite some time now, but I can remember what it was like to be in awe of M-rated games. I had a Gamecube at the time and that alone shielded me from much of the violent content my mom and dad didn't want me enjoying on the living room television. Of course, when it comes to games, there's always a caveat.

The best friend's house.

Did you (or do you currently) have to go to a friend's house to play the Grand Theft Autos, Call of Duties, or (in this case) Dead Spaces?

When Grand Theft Auto III arrived on the scene in late 2001, I didn't have a Playstation 2. Of course, my friend Eric did. My friend Zach and I would head over to his house each weekend to play games. It became a weekly ritual of sorts to pass the controller around, attempting missions, causing digital chaos, and laughing our heads off.

He brought his PS2 to my house once. I ran someone over on the sidewalk and blood trailed from my stolen taxi cab's tires.

We never played GTA at my house after that.

Now, year's later, I can't help but cackle at the unfortunate mothers who unknowingly sat through the footage EA and Visceral Games showed during these focus group sessions. It's the unfortunate sort of humor I can't help but be tickled by. Below, you'll find the TV advertisement, but if you head to yourmomhatesthis.com, you can see more horrified mothers.
