Grandma Would Like To Clarify: "We Like The Police"
Grandma doesn't want people to get the wrong impression of her, so she asked me to post a clarification.
Grandma has the deepest respect for police officers. No shit. Sure, she's gotten speeding and parking tickets in her time, and she's probably cursed several men and women in uniform for making her insurance go up a bit, just like the rest of us; but that doesn't mean she doesn't like the police, or even that she wishes to take out her vengeance for traffic court in a safe and private way. Not at all. In short: it's just a game, Grandma didn't mean anything by it.
The police put themselves in danger to enforce laws every day; they deserve recognition for the importance of their work. Grandma doesn't hate the police, it's very much the opposite. At the same time, however, she's not going to apologize for her game dialogue. For example, Grandma has said the following pieces of politically incorrect elderly diatribe while gaming:
"I wish that fucking DOG would fucking DIE!!"
"GOD, I hope that bitch shuts up."
"I ran over a CHILD! Two points!!"
"See, if I can convince The Don that Cloud is really PRETTY, then maybe Cloud will beat the shit out of that RAPIST PIMP FUCKER right before he gets his dick out."
So you see, Grandma doesn't advocate the killing of animals, even though she kills plenty in video games for no other reason than to try out new weapons [see Resident Evil 4]; she doesn't want to propagate violence towards women, especially in bitch slapping "SHIT THE FUCK UP" form, even though she says it all the time while gaming [again... see Resident Evil 4]; she doesn't hit kids with her car, but it is quite funny when pedestrians use ragdoll physics to fall into each other avoiding the wrath of Grandma [see Crazy Taxi, Grand Theft Auto, many others]; and her desire to immediately execute those she deems morally unsound in video games in no way reflects upon her views on rehabilitation and reform rather than punitive torture against those with felony sex crime convictions. Shit, I think she's for legalizing prostitution if the women and men doing it make their own choices [see Final Fantasy VII, Super Mario Brothers 3, others...]
To all the fine folks who read OGHC who work in law enforcement, know that Grandma loves you, she didn't mean any harm. She's just doing her thing.
[More posts coming today; we had to backdate this post because I thought it went up yesterday, and those who subscribe to our RSS feed would feel left out if we didn't. Grandma rented RE4 for the PS2 to see the difference in graphics and gameplay than her copy for the GC; we also rented Star Wars Battlefront II, so Grandma has a lot to share! Also, it was discovered that the new version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is best viewed with Vodka. ...you know, just- ...FYI and all. Game on!]
