they have very nice buildings, some are not new but why do you need new buildings if the old ones are doing there job -.-  , i think its because American people can not keep up with the times the world is changing, and American is a bit slow at change, they are like U.K. after ww2 slow to see the world changing around them

maybe one day American well speed up but i don't see that happening any time soon, they will just stay in there little bit of the world

Out i would live in Russia any day over USA

I hate when Americans always use Russians as badguys...I always see Americans as good guys ;(

Thats stupid,damn American ego...

They think that they are strong ultil somebody shots few rounds and they run and they say: Iam too old for this shit/I dont want to die young

I just hear,see or read on the internet on most gaming websites...America,America,America,oh...snap...again America...America...(infinently)...

Just die or rename yourself....Ught!

Someone wrote:Well yeah, that's because they're third world. It doesn't take a lot for them to return to the status quo of everyday life. Meanwhile, as Louis CK puts it, Americans have so much crap they can lose most of it and still have more than the average Canadian.

Sorry to tell you this but most first world country's are faster to fix things when a crises happens in there own country , USA is just slow at this who knows why, i mean come on its been how long from when the Hurricane Katrina hit, its been fucken years and its still not all fixed up, that is more like a 3rd world country's clean up then a First, 

maybe American should do more looking in its own backwater country before looking at other country's to say oo your evil just because you have a different way of looking at the world 

lol thats my American Flame for the day ( try and get one out very day =P)

Russia are the bad guys in games because we see them as the most powerful enemy we've ever had.  Remember that during the Cold War, they had vast amounts of resources to work with, and a top-of-the-line spy network (KGB), plus they were the second great superpower.  Hell, when we made something good, you could practically count on them making something similar within a few years.  Nuff said.

But all this aside, just because we make games with Russian protagonists doesn't mean we don't like them.  It's just the opposite.  Most of us respect them.  So really, it's not something to get your dander up about.

BTW, I like the Russian accent too!  :D

Because America won the Cold War.  If the USSR had succeeded and America was a Communist state, all the games would be about Capitalist pigdogs.  "Winners write history" is a cliche but it's true.

I thought about this a week ago. I came up with this
Most hollywood script writers grew up during the cold war, when all the Americans thought that Russians were bad. So when movie writers go to write a script that has a evil person they chose a use a Russian since they grew up thinking the were evil people.

I think in the next 20-30 years all the villains will be middle eastern.

The USSR no longer exists.  The countries that were under the iron curtain are now largely capitalist sovereign nations.  What would you consider a victory, if not that?  It's not like we were going to blow them up--it was the Cold War, after all.

Point taken, but I happen to hold both at arms length in regard to their shared...fictional natures.

Well, I was suggesting that we lost just as much (if not more) than we won due to the effect of "Reaganomics" which was a direct result of the cold war ...

Could be.  But I think what matters in terms of the thread topic is that when the Soviet Union collapsed and its constituent states abandoned communism, capitalism was perceived as being vindicated.  Reaganomics certainly did incalculable damage, but despite that the US remains more politically and economically stable than Russia--certainly it's a more omnipresent cultural force.

i wouldn't say that US won, in a sense of -defeating- USSR.
But, as Dusek wrote, the communistic system pretty much collapsed.
paradoxically, one of major reasons of its collapse was gorbachev's Perestrojka, a restructuring process that was supposed to fix the issues within the system and make it work better.

There is NO GOOD OR BAD only different opinions/points of view/objectives/etc.

So if team "X" can get you on their side, you see team "Y" as the enemy...its that simple.

Thats the way it has always been and will be until we nuke each other and the earth will be a peacefull place once again.

Hey the British also got alot of stick from the American aswell, for example if you've ever watched star wars the original trillogy, why are all the bad guys British and if you have studied the war of independance there are subtle similarities between the two.
