Rev Rant: sharing Soap

2:20 PM on 12.16.2009 // Anthony Burch

Every week, sort of, features editor Anthony Burch discusses games and gamer culture in his "Rev Rant" video series.  You can watch the previous rants here.

This week's rant is about how Modern Warfare 2 skillfully combines first and third-person characterization to give the player a feeling of shared agency over Soap McTavish.

It may just be me, but anytime I see footage from the last few missions of Modern Warfare 2 I am overcome with an aggravating desire to play the entire singleplayer campaign all over again, from the beginning, in one sitting.

I'm still amazed that people were whining about the game's length -- didn't Portal teach us the stupidity of such complaints?
