Comment Wheres the fun (Score 3, Insightful) 122

Funny, I was just discussing this with a friend recently. I used to game a lot when I was younger and got out of it for quite sometime other then playing a few PC games. I recently got a PS3 and although the graphics and everything else in new games is awesome, I felt like I was missing something. What I noticed was games seem and feel too real these days. To an extent, that's what we've always strive for it to make games more real and exciting but have we passed a point? I love Call of Duty but at the same time I feel like too much is going on and at some point I just wanna shoot some sh*t and be happy. Games are supposed to let you zone out and have fun and I feel as if this is hard sometimes when you make games with physics resembling real life. I want to take a turn down a street at 90 MPH without braking or hitting a wall.

Why not, we're the people of America? So who does have the right to say whether all this is damning or not? And regardless of what actually get's leaked, I believe this is a good thing because maybe the government will realize they need to be more transparent about what they do.

Why wouldn't you think outside the box and realize people download different files of different sizes which can ultimately exceed your cap without you knowing. That's on top of just general web browsing and watching videos which uses bandwidth. But all I know is common sense so don't take my word for it.
