Far Cry 3 is stupid.
Well, before I get ahead of myself, let me preface that. I am not a very good gamer. Also, I didn’t finish Far Cry 3.
Because, Far Cry 3 is stupid.
The stupidity starts early. Fire the game up, select a difficulty, load up a new campaign…and wait. While you’re waiting, you’ll enjoy a barrage of half formed images barely coming into focus and poorly associated word pairs flash across the screen. Pokemon seizures meet 4:20.
Like I said, Far Cry 3 is stupid.
The developers tout the fact that they’ve immersed our hero (whatever his name is) in a world larger and more…immersive…than the previous games. Sea turtles swim through the surf, fully self aware, making decisions to avoid dangers while pondering the existential links between recursion and genius within Godel, Escher, Bach
(it won a Pulitzer, go look it up!). In reality, they contribute to the mindless chaos of stupid. To be honest, living in Florida and having a crippling fear of sharks (yes, even virtual Jaws) prevented me from spending too much time with the turtles. However, if they were half as stupid as their terrestrial comrades, they wouldn’t know the difference between a hungry bull shark and something to eat. More on this later.
Far Cry 3 really is that stupid.
