Video game critics are useless parasites who gamers laugh at. Cultural video game critics are useless faggots who gamers mock endlessly. Any 'socialist' game would be laughed at. Games are not tools of propaganda.

This guy has absolutely no idea why Bannon catered to gamers or why the left will never win them over. Progtards CONSTANTLY poked their nose into shit violently and virulently, degrading and deriding the audience. Conservatives simply tapped into, 'Nah, we're not interested in doing that. We won't put politics in your games' That's literally all they did. This dumb faggot thinks injecting more politics will work. He's a joke, his life is a joke and this book is a joke.

This will never happen. The games these people produce are always ass-wiping material and they consistently shit on actually good games (including beloved classics) for minor slights. The average guy who plays video games probably only cares if your game is fun and engaging, not a prepackaged sixty fucking dollar introduction to intersectional feminism and cultural marxism.

Just look at the joyless hellhole that is Resetera. At that point you're not even enjoying video games, so what's the point?

On the other hand, if we let them make more games, they waste millions of dollars and years of their lives to give us train-wrecks like this, and it doesn't cost us a dime to watch the dumpster catch fire.

I've said this countless times and it bears repeating once more....

Anyone who still cares about Gamergate post-2015 is a complete and total idiot

Also, I find it hilarious that these hipsters love socialism so much.

As others pointed out, they'd be the ones who suffer most under actual socialism (and no, Canada and the Nordic countries are Social Democracies, not full-blown socialist countries)

I think the reason why so many SJW hipsters and dangerhairs love socialism so much is the exact same reason why they hate Christianity so much.

Their dumb views are motivated by a sense of punk contrarianism AKA "Fuck you, Mom and Dad!"

Let them throw themselves against the free market of video games over and over again and break themselves over and over again.

I am happy to just point and laugh. Capitalism gave us studios like Troika, communism's sole contribution of note was Tetris and capitalism turned it into something better than the original.

There's tons of propaganda games. From America's Army to stuff like ZOG's nightmare. And that is just the overt shit. I haven't played too many story based games in the last decade so let me make a movie analogy using even older films. If you watch a lot of big name action flicks from the 80's you'll notice certain patterns like most of the big bad guys being Russians and as an aside a massive anti-drug boner(this spilled over into the games of the 80's and 90's with the overt "WINNERS DON'T USE DRUGS" splash screens on arcade machines). The Russians being the bad guys during the cold war was good propaganda because it was subtle and people didn't normally question it except in Rocky IV where Lundgren clearly wasn't Russian and broke all kinds of boxing regulations by being 2 feet and 80 pounds bigger than Stallone not to mention the roids. Stallone being the same nigga that stared in Rambo III where John Rambo helps the Taliban defeat those evil Russkies.

It's interesting that I can't think of any games that are pro socialism, but I can think of at least two that shit on dystopian Commie regimes. Papers Please and the Tropico series. These niggas should start with a Tropico mod with all the secret police stuff cut out. Maybe add in a WOLOLOLO Commie conversion mechanic...

All they gotta do now is make El Presidente look less malevolent.

Where do I go to retrieve my commie game designer paycheck?

I miss the time when the people who reviewed video games were just massive fan boys. At least they had a passion for the games they played and weren't morons who could barely pass a tutorial.


I just want to play games.
I know that feel

If you want to attract "gamers" to "socialism", you need to make games t have anticapitalist themes that are not only entretaining but have interesting characters and story. But there is a little of problem with this: none of you fucks have any talent to do this because the games you produce are shit. And the games that feautures muh representation is very pro-status quo, even if you don't want to admit it (representation is not socialism, you dummy). In conclusion, no, you can't bring gamers to socialism for a very simple reason: ideological shifts are a lot more complex than playing a game and saying "wow, I hate capitalism now". It's a mental process where you develop your ideas with multiple experiences. But yeah, keep shilling for corporations and neoliberals: that's surely the path to socialism

Jagged Alliance series is all about dictators that got in by promising to be a "champion of the people", and then going full commie.
