In light of the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and newfound appreciation for delivery drivers, I think a pandemic themed version of the classic delivery driver Mac skin is in order. The new version should wear a mask, latex gloves, and numerous bottles of hand sanitizer in his belt. Anyone else think the skin would be a day-one buy? Would someone create the artwork for it? They could even write a backstory around it.
I second and support this idea.
I thought games were a way to escape reality. But I already see people wearing masks in GTAO as a joke.
What if I just really like Left 4 Dead?
Yeah we need escapism. I’m going to go play The Divison, a game about NYC under lockdown due to a virus. Completely unrealistic
I was just thinking about this
Technically–DOOM Eternal has something to do about a global infection–of Demons.
But it still counts, right?
Whoa spoiler alert
Oh sorry, I’ll edit it right now.
No. Delivery driver mac was and still is a horrible skin.
And when it is finally over with, people playing said character could then be accused of being offensive. People are dying of this Coronacrap, and you want it in a game. I wonder how the people suffering would take this, as a Gears fan, and a high risk of getting Coronacrap, i find this, distasteful.
Support your local nurses and doctors
This idea seems pretty tasteless to me right now. But yeah I agree.
I’d support an exclusive skin being created and sold where the proceeds go toward a medical organisation who are helping to manage the Covid-19 situation, but I don’t think there’s any need for the skin to reference the pandemic in any way. It could just be a COG Gear in a shiny metallic [insert preferred colour] or something. I mean, the Johnny COG Gear (which supports the Gamer’s Outreach project for children in hospitals) is essentially that right?
COVID-19 MAC could really work… I would buy him for sure
Yeah. A cool skin with animated armor that I can buy for 20 bucks with the proceeds going to help feed people during this time.
COD did it for Australia with the wildfire they had. They made a good amount of money for that cause.
I would do it for free if its for helping people with no money to eat of course,. they don’t have to give me any Gears 5 skin in ruturn. .
There are some charities going on right now where you can donate.
