When you see the box of Mass Effect you will assume it is a harmless game about a soldier who saves the world but things are much deeper that that!

In the Mass Effect future the United States, Canada, and Mexico are one nation.

In ME3 the term "unborn children" is used at least two times.

Do you think they targeted at the GOP "pro-lifers" or push the GOP "pro-life" narrative on liberal and libertarian gamers?

If you play paragon there is a message that forced mass sterilization of a people is dehumanizing and wrong.

Is this game military propaganda? Pro life Republican propaganda? Transhumanist propaganda? NWO propaganda?

They’re games. Andromeda was crap, but they’re still just games.

Stop looking for some vague political divide and just enjoy them (apart from Andromeda) for what they are.

Interesting.

Considering how many gamers there are out there it makes sense to test the viability of an idea on that platform first...

Well, aren't those interesting thoughts. I've played through all four games 3-6 times. LOVED that series.

I don't think it was so much pro-life as anti-genocide.

What if games were used to get a idea on how segments of population would react in specific environments...

Not impossible at all.

That's why I postulated the scenario.

See bold. If you play RL, I think there is the same message. Some things just are... irrespective of politics.

That said, I am sure games have been used to push an agenda or propaganda. Whether that is directed by the govt, or just a large corp with an opinion...who knows. To push the govt/military conspiracy, the target audience may not always be the US even if it looks like it.

Well Mass Effect would be a bad choice, because there are numerous players like myself who have played them multiple times and chose different options which change the endings.

I do not think media as a general rule is a harbringer for things to come.

Remember the division? People said that was a tool for training government sleeper paramilitary death squads, but i played it and *watch lights up*, oh... sorry guys, got to go.

And, Joker? I still owe him for rallying 5th Fleet to come help out!

Good times.

Citadel Security - "How would you like for us to arrest you ?"
Wrex - "I would like to see you try."

Baddest dude in any game. I have that line memorized.

On a more serious note:
The world came together as Element 0 and the Mass Effect Relay was discovered. Now humans could travel across the galaxy and war with others.
The world stayed together as the First Encounter War with the Turians as they kicked royal a__ in just 3 months. If not for the Citadel stepping in , there would have been no humans left.

What do you think of Starship Troopers and their future Socialist Society ?
Was Heinlein predicting a future society ?

They are just books and games .
Enjoy
