REALISM IN VIDEO GAMES

Bresson’s “A Man Escaped”

The same way realism in movies showed details of everyday life and reality ( such as for instance Bresson’s “A Man Escaped”)  with real scenery, unknown actors and minimal technics, Galloway feels that
“realist games as those games that reflect critically on the minutiae of everyday life”. Thus we see games like “911 Survivor”, ” Waco Resurrection” and “Kuma’s War”

So we see social realism in games “modeled around real events” in “Special Force” and “Under Ashes” where the game creates anti-Israeli battles for Palestinians similar to “America’s Army” but more realistic by the fact that the scenarios are created by those who feel oppressed.

Personally, I don’t feel that this type of game is beneficial to children or to anyone for that matter. It only incites hate and can only make things worse in the Middle East.

One thought on “REALISM IN VIDEO GAMES”

  1. To me, games such as theses are considered to be propaganda. These types of games are definitely not beneficial to our youth, especially the ones who immerse themselves within playing video games. Sadly, this will build a generation of hate who will grow up to think that they are superior and the races/countries that are represented in these types of video games are the enemy.
