I've just started playing Far Cry 5. I hope the Mail discover it.
I thought the whole 'evil video games' nonsense had died down but recently there seems to be a bit of a resurgence of it.
I haven't played Far Cry 5, but am I right in thinking that when it was first revealed the antagonist was a cult leader based in the USA, using God and whatever else to spread violence and power, the alt-right had a hissy fit?
Yes, that's right. They ran a petition to have the game banned before release.
It turned out they were wrong. Ubisoft played it safe and it's fairly politically ambiguous. If anything, gun-toting small town, hillbilly type Americans are actually portrayed as the saviours in the game.
The alt-right then started mocking "SJW's" and accusing them
of being angry about the game. It was classic projection.
