The Real Killer Is You!

I think this is old news but I’ll bring up the Hitman: Blood Money commericial tag line.

Normally, I avoid commercials like a plague but I couldn’t dodge this one.  The commercial was for Hitman Blood Money.  The tag line?  I’ll paraphrase:  Agent 47 is not a killer.  He’s just doing his job.  The real killer here is you.”

*sigh*  Its hard to defend games when they do so much to deserve the criticism they get.  Really, telling the viewers that the real killer is them is just bad marketing.  Hell, it gives Jack Thompson ammunition for his crusade.  In addition to the prostitute-banging, gun-toting, hot coffee-drinking vigilantes spawned by GTA, he’s going to rant about hitmen coming to kill him.

There are some positive effects, though.  Free publicity from a tag line might generate profits.  The long term effects?  …Not so great.

Strength…is the only thing that matters in this world.  Everything else is just a delusion for the weak.
