Forums - Politics Discussion - Right and left wing games

So, I generally avoid the politics sub-forum here on VGC like a plague, but I saw this picture that is making the rounds right now and just had to post it, mostly because of how stupid it is:

The picture was supposedly made by a left wing person on Tumblr to signal to other left wing gamers which series they should avoid playing, and went viral on Twitter with most people making fun of how stupid the lists are. As a right wing gamer myself, I definitely see a few games on each list that I agree with, there are a few games on the left list that I hate (because of their political message), and several on the right list that I love, but there are also several games on the left list that I enjoy and several of the right list that I dislike.

But the main theme of this whole list is that alot of these just don't make any sense. For some reason he thinks FF7 is right wing, even though you play as a member of a group of eco-terrorists who attack a power company for endangering the planet, that's a pretty left wing message if you ask me. Meanwhile he has Pokemon on the left wing list, a series which left wing organization PETA hates because you enslave animals and make them fight each other. There are many other games on each list that just don't make any sense at all.

I'm not sure what more can be said beyond dumb thing is dumb.



.... That's beyond stupid....



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I enlarged the image to read the text and what caught my eye in the zoomed-in image was Xenoblade Chronicles on the left edge and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on the right edge.

That's what happens when someone makes a thread to ask people for their favorite games along with their political affiliation and afterwards counts the votes.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

We need a new Index Librorum Prohibitorum, but for right wing games.

If you blindly limit yourself to only one political group's ideas you're guaranteed to be wrong 50% of the time...



The list is stupid because no (US)right wing person buys a Japanese console or games. If they do they forfeit their racism card.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Did I see the original FF7 listed under right wing, but FF7R listed as left wing? Pretty sure that the original game had some pretty left wing politics, given that the bad guys were a fictional amalgamation of TEPCO and the Japanese government.



Well right wing, left wing, chicken wing

It's built on finding the easier ways through

...

Is there any, chicken wing games?

True in some countries, absolutely untrue in most. Moderate groups will be right 80% of the time while extremist groups will be wrong 80% of the time.

Sounds like bullshit coming straight from /r/ENLIGHTENEDCENTRISM/
