Yep. Remember Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30? I admit it wasn't the best game ever, but there was a ton of research put into it. The producers visited and recreated the towns and areas, as well as firing and recording the weapons used at the time. The game had a lot of potential but I don't think it was executed quite right.

i agree with you on that game, can't wait to see what they'll do with the next installment.

they did lot of research for crysis too. taking pictures of leaves, trees and sunrays through leaves to have the most realistics feel possible.

triple A games spend a lot of time on research, because they can. of course, i don't see them spending al ot of time doing research for gears of war, but they still have to make the setting believable, so they probably hire architects of something

I was one year old when that disaster happened. the winds flew the **** to my hometown too, got some radiation on me

"The plume from the burning graphite initially traveled in a northwest direction toward Sweden, Finland and eastern Europe, exposing the public to levels up to 100 times the normal background radiation."

None of my friends (even after beating both stalker and COD4) and girlfriend didn't know about it either. I was like *** are you kidding me. It took about 20 minutes to convince them it was real.

It's a very sad story. I'm very very surprised that quite a few people here didn't know it was real.
post #28 of 36
i was a kid when it happened and it scared me ****less. the worst of was that the sent in in the rescue services in to the scene without telling them what had happened or any real protection.

the people there are still suffering from the effects of the radiation and its their childeren who are being born defective.

tragic story but such is life.

I've always known about the disaster but up until a few months ago I didn't that COD4 was so realistically modeled after Chernobyl, the devs deserve a lot of credit. A couple years ago I think it was the history channel was talking about how that containment building they built is threatening to collapse.

LOL disentrigated, no they died but they didnt do that.

Yeah I find it hard to believe that anyone doesnt know about that. It was a horrible disaster. A compilation of mistakes and poor design. Ahh well.
