[REVIEW] Far Cry 3

Whoot, my first post! I finished my finals this week and, to my disappointment, completed Far Cry 3. I wasn't sure whether or not to post this here because I don't know how it'll be received but I think it'd be good for discussion.

THE GOOD
- I got this game for $5. Wish I got it for free.
- Ubisoft never disappoints when it comes to scenery, nature, and the animal animations and clippings.
- Gameplay mechanics are wonderful; very much like Assassin's Creed in FPS style. You've got the synchronizing in high places to map out locations, gain more ways to kill/stealth as you progress, do sidequests that don't have anything to do with the main mission, etc.

THE "F**K NO STOP THIS NOW" (TRIGGER WARNING: racism, sexism, rape; CONTAINS SPOILERS)

It's a long list of bad with a bit of profanity so prepare yourselves. If you found this helpful, please rate up on Steam so that it stays visible as it's one of the few honest reviews. Lots of Far Cry 3 stans but I expected it.

I sometimes wonder how these things happen. Because shit like this has to pass several levels of approval to hit the sales floor. And not *one* person at any of those points ever sat back and went, "you know, this might be a little problematic."

It boggles the mind. Yet it happens over and over. Is it an education problem? If we just work on teaching the next generation to be better, will the incidence go down as time progresses?

It will but something like this has to be consistent learning and the person has to wanna learn so it's gonna be really hard taking something like this out of a culture. It's sloooooowly changing though.

But you've got high-profile game reporting like IGN and Game Informer calling it "incredible" and "an adventure you won't want to miss." Most eggheaded gamers will look past these things.

Also, if you're on Steam, could you please help me rate up the review so that it stays visible? There are a lot of Far Cry 3 stans who won't even challenge me on any of this lol but it was expected.
