« I think when non-middle easterners see talk about games playing into colonialism they think it's like......about fictional representation.
Nah dude. it's worse. it's SO much worse than that.
Will any of yall listen when we talk about how incredibly fucked it is that the US Army and fucking Marines have massive, HD shooting game setups in Pax every single year? Nah?? Or are we still overreacting?
Let me be incredibly clear: this article is from JULY 2020.
This has BEEN happening.
This is far beyond any discussions about representation, about who is framed as the enemy in video games. This is an explicit adoption of technology designed to both gameify the murder of civilians and as smooth the learning curve on efficiency of said murder for young soldiers
Like, the transparency almost beggars belief.
Things like this? *This* is why every single person in games needs to get fucking engaged and get loud about what's happening in Palestine. When you're an American dev, it's NOT JUST your taxes that are going to military forces both here and abroad.
It's the shit you're making. »
