Far Cry 3 trailer starts with generic 20-somethings having a good time, inevitably ends in slaughter

It's like the '80s taught them nothing

If the last thirty years of cinema have taught us anything, it's that if you're a young, good-looking American having a hedonistic good time while being vaguely obnoxious, things are about to get rapidly rather unpleasant. And they're not going to get better until there's been a whole lot of killing. Far be it from Far Cry 3 to break from convention...

Remember that, the next time you're skydiving onto a surfboard on your way to a paintball match at a spring break kegger. It might be fun at the time, but you're basically going to get butchered by pirates.


Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
