I've noticed that themes of the new world order(or the nwo itself) has been a pretty big focus in a lot of video games these days. From Dues Ex
1&2(Illuminati, corporate takeover, nwo) to Area 51 and a ton of other games. Lot's of RPG's now have at least references to known secret societies,
and a lot of Orwellian themes of big brother and fascist police states are seeping in. Some, like Electronic Art's canned Majestic and others pull
from widely known conspiracy theories.
What are some conspiracy theories you've noticed in games?
Here is a brief satiricle synopsis of new world order themes I've noticed in games, as well as my own interpretation conspiracy theory
The Ninja Warriors(arcade/1987/Taito)
A way cool late 80's arcade classic, where two trained ninja robots take on a tyrannical dictatorship who rules with Orwellian authority over a
country. Like in Nazi Germany and Columbia, Coca-Cola seems to sponsor tyranny wherever it may spring up(as well as keep the bastards refreshed!)
JFK Reloaded(PC/2004/Traffic games)
What happens when your president is about to abolish the CIA and put an end to the Federal Reserve? It's time to get Zapruder up in that! Made by the
idiots who helped develop PS2 suckfest State of Emergency, they are out to prove there wasn't any sort of conspiracy whatsoever! Nope, none at all!
Hopefully someone can make a mod where ya can play as CIA operative Bush Sr. and Richard Nixon having a nice smoke break on the grassy knoll.
Remember, there ain't no camping on the 33rd parallel!
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000(PC/1999/Microsoft)
So you're stuck in a classroom, tired of playing Oregon Trail and reading books about pet goats. Well what better way to ensure your neo conservative
buddies can enact their globalist fantasies, than by practicing your skyscraper kamikaze skills in virtual reality! This game works well with Highrise
Demolition Expert 2001 and CIA Terrorist Trainer Tycoon. Building off the success of TWA Flight Simulator 1996(where ya got to "accidentally" shoot
down passenger planes over the east coast), Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 is the perfect game for any wouldbe jihad cowboy.
New World Order(PC/2003/Termite Games)
Here is the official tagline of this FPS game: "In the near future, terrorist factions known as"The Syndicate" are becoming increasingly
successful in creating havoc in the world. Now, the worldpowers have reacted by forming anti-terrrorist guerilla squads known as the Global Assault
Team, who have a mandate to track down and dispose of terrorists any way they see fit, anywhere in the world. You are a rookie member of the Global
Assault Team with only one mission: show terrorists it is time to set a New World Order and restore freedom."
Hmmm, using a terrorist attack as
the impetus to set up a new world order under the banner of "freedom"? Gee, I'm sure glad that could never happen!
Aw yes, twas the late 80's and the war on drugs was everywhere(including your local arcade!) In this ultra violent 2-player spectacle, your mission
was to take down and blow up crack dealers spreading their drugs throughout
the inner cities. Of course little did you know it was actually the CIA funneling in the crack coc aine to fund central American guerrillas, but
hey...it was a time of ignorance and wealthy excess. Oddly enough a CIA anti drug message appeared before all the arcade games of the time. Ooh boy,
that's irony for ya! Remember kids, winners don't do drugs!(They only deal it!)
One of the best damn PC games ever, as well as one of the coolest cyberpunk games to boot, Deus Ex is the mother of all conspiracy games. In this
captivating adventure FPS, the Illuminati is busy taking over the world through corporations, world governments, and even the airwaves. The only thing
missing is Bilderberg meetings, Trilateral commissions, Knights Templar, CIA mind control, Denver International Airport, and funny red hats!
In this fun filled adventure across the central African plains, you play a zoologist driving around in a jeep wrangling up all sorts of different
wildlife. I guess when the World Health Organization infects half the population with bio-warfare lab created AIDS, there isn't much else to do but
lasso up Gazelles and Elephants.
This game was actually scrapped over a lot of controversy, and the website taken down. Revolving around a plot of CIA world take over, EA actually put
a good amount of hype and marketing intrigue for the game. Sadly, in the end when a conspiracy hits to close to home, they send the black helicopters
WCW Vs. NWO World Tour(N64/THQ/1997)
Yes, the New World Order went prime time in the latter 90's...but instead of a shadowy group of elite globalists, bankers, world leaders and secret
societies...it was mullet haired steroid buffs wrasslin' around on cable tv. Whatcha gonna do brotha?
Mall Tycoon 2(PC/2003/Take Two Interactive)
There is no civic duty more important as an American citizen than being a good little blind consumer. As a mindless prole it's imperative you spend
your all seeing almighty eye dollar on crap you really don't need. In Mall Tycoon 2, you get to create the ultimate cubed consumer hell. Filled with
the latest 3rd world slave labor made stuff, your customers will be coming in droves. Just don't forget to put in a few dozen StarBucks, the
preferred latte tool of the New World Order. Remember folks, only buy 3rd world slave labor made stuff!(As only overworked tiny hands can stitch the
best in Nike, Gap and Disney garments!)
Battlefield 1942(PC/2002/Electronic Arts)
It's 1942, and up to you to take on the Nazi regime and stop their tyranny over Europe. One of the best multiplayer FPS war games ever, the game
illustrates how imporant it is to stop Nazism wherever it may spring up. Of course it's easier said than done. When you have the current president's
grandfather, corporations, wealthy families and elite bankers who funded fascism, you got your work cut out for you. A lack of fast reflexes and an
old graphics card might be your achilles heel, but a fascist German genocidal campaign without Ford engineering, aspirin companies, and IBM machines
America's Army(PC/2002/the corrupt millitary complex of America)
So you've met with your oil gang, defense contractor pals, Saudi friends and Skull n Bones buddies...used the cloak of a tragedy to hoodwink the
American public, and declared war for fictitious reasons. Now you need some young cannon fodder! What better way to snooker in vulnerable young men to
line flag draped coffins than using video games as a recruitment tool! Yes, your senators and congressmen were in bitter battles over so called
violent video games for years. Now you're using violent video games to encourage kids to incite real life violence...as long as the target happens to
'talk funny' and look different from you. Remember kids, there ain't no respawn points in Iraq!
