FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Take 2 Just Can't Get A Break

Posted on Tuesday, July 24 @ 21:51:44 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Pilloried and occasionally re-rated for GTA, Bully, Oblivion, and most recently Manhunt 2, you'd think that their release of All Pro Football 2K8 would be safe from controversy. Wrong.



Not when the jokers over at GameTrailers decide to take O.J. Simpson, one of the football legends featured in the game, and put him on an imaginary team called "The Assassins". You see, because 2K Sports does not have the NFL license (thanks to big exclusive cash paid by EA) they had to make up fictional teams.

The problem seems to be that when O.J. successfully rushes for a touchdown, The Assassins' giant mascot gets all stabby. Real subtle there, there, GameTrailers. They even named the video "Slashing the Defense" and subtitle it "OJ Simpson tears the defense to pieces showing he still has the skills to escape anything that comes his way."

OK, so the joke is a little tasteless, but no biggie, right? Well it seems that some people are upset anyway, and Take 2 is taking some of the heat.

Sorry guys, it should have been so easy. I feel for you, and I support your decision to have O.J. in the game, regardless of what he did off the field. He was a genuine legend on the gridiron.
