Well Duh. Its not possible to separate a recent controversial war and an even more controversial event from politics.
Intentional marketing strategy by the devs/publishers to keep the game relevant or genuinely clueless? The everything is political crowd have literally zero impact on sales. There's a reason it's all focused on wannabe media gatekeepers and twitter mobs.
Lol.... 15th of Feb 2021 - Six Days in Fallujah ‘not trying to make a political commentary,’ creator says, these guys need to have a strategy meeting and get their message on point for such a touchy subject.ID: gq8l6dqID: gq8te5v
You shouldn't trust a damn thing Polygon has to say. All the actual journalists departed long ago, if they were ever there in the first place, and now they exclusively hire from the ranks of Twitter wokescolds. If they're upset about something, you're usually pretty safe assuming that it's actually good and cool.
In summary: Polygon is shit. SHIT. Don't rely on them as a news source.
As much as I hate the Kotakus and Polygons of the world, I'm with them on this. The only way to do this sort of game is to make a game that is the complete opposite of Call of Duty. If anyone comes away from this game wanting to join the military, they've failed to tell this story correctly.ID: gq8tiz1
Sad part is COD used to be very anti war, it focused more on the brutality of it now of days its just "action movie yolo mcswagins."ID: gq8lg8j
If anyone comes away from this game wanting to join the military, they've failed to tell this story correctly.
No one joins military over video games. This is "video games causes violence" logic. If they are, they are just idiots in general or they just really want to skip school or leave thier parents home that much.
Game looks like crap anyway.
If you actually read article and not base it on a disingenuous clickbait headline, thier message is pretty clear.
And while Tamte did in fact say that he was “not trying to make a political commentary,” what Polygon’s selective headline quote misses is that the creator was referring to specifically making commentary on the morality of the war as a whole.
“Just as that [Marine] cannot second-guess the choices by the policymakers,” clarified Tamte, “we’re not trying to make a political commentary about whether or not the war itself was a good or a bad idea.”
