Being the kind of guy who finds it morally reprehensible to kill a fly, you might think that my opinion of Shark Attack Deathmatch was a given and that I would, naturally, hate it. But let’s pause for one sec. No real sharks were hurt in the making of Shark Attack Deathmatch. No real sharks get hurt when playing Shark Attack Deatchmach. And while I might be a firm supporter of animal right, I’m not a firm supporter of virtual-animal rights. And the idea that harming animals in a game inspires, motivates or encourages gamers to go and kill animals in real life is just bullshit. I mean really. Given the number of people playing first person shooters, if a game was actually capable of making a person kill stuff, the population would be cut in half by now and we gamers would have all killed one another long ago. So, now that that bullshit is out of the way, let’s take a look at the actual game of Shark Attack Deathmatch. Shark Attack Deathmatch has split an audience in a way I thought only John Cena could. Many people hate it, many others love it. In reality, [...]

They also love playing in minigames and letting you know what’s happening in their lives on their home island via a news desk.
