Destructoid has an eye-opening post focusing on the “scary amount” of user-created levels in LittleBigPlanet 2 based on assassinating Barack Obama. The PlayStation 3 title and its predecessor have taken user-generated content to a whole new level, with customizable features and props out the wazoo.
While that’s mostly a great thing, there is a downside. Namely, vile idiots making levels with charming names such as:
♦ obama kill read description
♦ defeat obamas
♦ hêârt if ù häte ôbámå ( seriously ) h4h
♦ m odes to kill obama
♦ stupid obama
♦ KILL OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
♦ arrest obama for life
Groan. Nice to see political discourse as cool-headed as ever in the States. And so sensitive given recent events! Alas, I suppose this is the problem with user-defined content: you’ll always get some skinwaster creating this sort of nonsense.
Just don’t let it put you off the game, which (a few idiots aside) is splendid.
