i'm pretty sure i voted for SR3. i keep trying to formulate a post in the video game racism thread where i explain why i didn't find its sexism/homophobia/racism upsetting, whereas i was bothered by deus ex human revolution, but i can't quite say it the way i want to. it's something about how it's so gleefully inane that it is hard to ascribe malice to it. it's not just that it insults everyone (which ppl have pointed out is often the refuge of the racist) but that the way it insults ppl is so guileless, so silly.
ftr, my fave part of the game is Genki. have u all seen tim + eric's thing?

normally, i hate Tim and Eric, but they were the perfect guys to do that video
btw, did any of you guys ever randomly run into Genki in the game, because holy shit, he's scary.

i liked sr3 but i didn't love it. as manic as it is its still an uglier reflection of arrested gamers attitudes to women, and that gets icky after a while. and its just pretty cheap and shoddy wrt gameplay compared to gta4, esp compared to ballad of gay tony, which was just about perfect IMHO in terms of lunatic but grounded urban sandbox.
