One Final Bush-Bashing Game

January 20, 2009 -

As George W. Bush turns over the reigns to Barack Obama today, online gamers will have their final chance to zing the 43rd president.

Goodbye, Mr. Bush is a whack-a-mole sort of affair in which players hurl objects at a cartoon version of Dubya which pops up in various locations on the White House lawn. Weapons of choice include eggs, candy and, of course, shoes.

The game, like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten. But there is one clever moment. Players who choose Weapons of Mass Destruction to hurl at Bush are informed that WMD can't be found.

Hmmm... Where have we heard that before?

The people who are chortling at their own wit for making these games will soon be snarling and screeching whenever anyone dares to disagree with Barack Obama.  Just wait and see that I'm right.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

The internet is certainly having a collective orgasm over his innauguration speech.

Statements like, "I can listen to him speak for days," from straight men are frightening. He's a President, people, not the Second Coming.  And he's the President of one of the biggest and powerful Federal Governments in the history of the world.  Optimism is great, but we must watch our government closely.  If GW  showed up anything, it was that.  I have no issues with what Obama's done as of yet, only disagreeing vehemently over his SecEd pick.  Chicago public schools are shit, and the guy that put them there is now a Cabinet member.  Call me crazy, but that's a terrible idea.

You'd think that if someone was trying to throw candy at you you'd stay still instead of moving around so much.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

If Bush is soon forgotten that will be an unfortunate event for this country.  Learning from history requires remembering, not forgetting.  He might not be the worst but he is right down there.  He consistently showed his lack of respect for the constitution.

But I guess I'm just a conspiracy theorists because I don't give any credit to a criminal like Bush.  Me and my silly desire to have a president that upholds the constitution instead of implementing policy that is in direct conflict with it.  ::tinfoil hat::  Bush was a terrible president and I'll always remember how did the exact opposite of what he promised to do in 2000.

"The game, like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten."

Wow.  People never forget polarizing figures.  Come on Dennis, seriously, what are you thinking?  Love or hate, GW Bush won't be easy to forget.

Frankly, I bet Bush is relieved to get all the scorn and responsibility off his shoulders.

If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

Everyone takes Bush too harshly. He's not the greatest president ever, but he's not the worst.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

You could argue that he's been the worst president of the 21st century so far.


If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

You can also argue that he's the best then...

Today is a day for Change. And the first thing I'd like to see changed here is the stop to reporting on every shitty little flash game that is created. Especially ones that are rip-offs of simple and old games like whack-a-mole and space invaders. Just because you use a parody of space invaders to propel a personal message, does not mean you respect games as a medium of expression, and thus deserve no applause or recognition from the gaming communtiy.

Good example: PETA.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

One Final Game? I doubt that.

....like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten. Again, i doubt that.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

Yea thats what I thought as well...

This is just the last one while he was still in office...

 

There will be mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnny more... hopefully one that depicts the true story of him losing all his money and being sent to prison... through if it is a true story than that will probably be before his brother/daughter/wife becomes president in 8 years and pardons him...

E. Zachary KnightIf you are downloading a copy in order to bypass the DRM, then you are legally in the wrong. Ethically, if you bought the game, it doesn't matter where you download it in the future.12/19/2014 - 12:06pm
InfophileEZK: Certainly better that way, though not foolproof. Makes me think though: does it count as piracy if you download a game you already paid for, just not from the place you paid for it at? Ethically, I'd say no, but legally, probably yes.12/19/2014 - 11:20am

MaskedPixelanteSeriously, the so-called "Last Chance" sale was up to 80% off, while this one time only return sale goes for a flat 85% off with a 90% off upgrade if you buy the whole catalogue.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
