Battlefield 4 China Ban?

ZDNet reports that Battlefield 4 is being banned in China, though the PCGames.com.cn story cited as the source of this does not seem to exist at this time. A prior report they link is still online, however, reflecting the Chinese military's concerns at how the country is portrayed in the military shooter sequel, as the game's is set in 2020 with unrest in China and possible resulting revolution being integral to the plot. According to ZDNet, the apparently deleted story stated Battlefield 4 "smears China's image" and was a new form of "cultural invasion." Thanks Techie News.

Of course China is going to ban this. Anyone who has played through the campaign would expect this. I'm surprised it took this long. You play as US military killing hundreds if not thousands of stupid Chinese soldiers. You help some magically charismatic Chinese pacifist civilian who the Chinese soldiers instantly change sides for without question, with a revolution highly suggested. It's propaganda at its best. If only they'd managed to work in the pollution angle somehow.

Imagine if they made a game where you played the Chinese military attacking major US cities and killing countless dumb Americans.

Most of the politicians would implode and the media shitstorm would be legendary

Funny how America never stops to think that maybe other people actually like their country they same way they do theirs. Has anything china done worse than rounding up all the native americans that were left after we slaughtered them all for jesus because this was the new promised land and stuffed them onto reservations?

America has done more evil shit to people than almost any other country on earth in about the shortest amount of time and we think because we had a couple of good years during WWII that nothing else matters.


On that note ... :

Re: The term Redskin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redskin_%28slang%29)

"The colonial government paid 50 pounds for scalps of males over 12 years, 25 pounds for scalps of women over 12, and 20 pounds for scalps of boys and girls under 12. Twenty-five British pounds sterling in 1755, worth around $9,000 today —a small fortune in those days when an English teacher earned 60 pounds a year."

Although, in their defense, such acts were par for the course in those times.
Back then you'd have a draw&quarter in the town square, and people were so accustomed to it that such events were only passingly mentioned in journals, etc, dwarfed by content of what one had for dinner.
