From a post to the 1stMIP.com blog:
Just a short note to say how much I have enjoyed your videos and hope you keep producing them. They tap into what is the huge potential offered by BF3 for satisfying, exciting, and meaningful gaming.
I am older than Dirt, and have been gaming since God was a Corporal……since Pong anyway. I have played them all……I have come to be totally fed up with the most common form of gameplay out there….”run-an-gun”. What your videos demonstrate
This is my very first blog post; wish me luck!
Lately I have been playing lots of mobile games, mainly the mobile versions of Dead Space and Bad Company 2. It has been a pleasant surprise to see an upward spike in the quality in gameplay and graphics as well as new features such as more and more games using Apple's Game Center. As an iPhone gamer, I confess that I lack knowledge in the Android gaming world, but I would be surprised to hear of improvements
A simple video with a BF3 "slice of life" captures so much of what I love about the game.
Here is some more of the feedback I have been getting on YouTube from my TG 1stMIP videos.
Most of the viewers appear to have little understanding of the potential of cohesive teamwork within a squad. The most frequent comment is "too slow" -- an indication of the run and gun mentality that pervades the game. There appears to be very little understanding of the role of defense. Many individuals clearly think that the number one priority is to move as fast as you can.
I leave for six weeks of India in about an hour. I usually write a blog somwhere, but sparked by the interest of some TG-ers I figured I would write it here this time around. And who knows, maybe it might inspire some of the fans of american exceptionalism of which there seem to be suite a bit in TG, to travel themselves one day and learn about different culture. Failing that, I'll aim to spark at least an interest in other cultures, and the exceptional wisdom and creativity that exists
