The Cultural Connection: How Games Comment on Society

Leviathyn.com | "Call me weird, but I’ve always been fascinated by sociology and psychology. I like studying social trends, how we relate to them, why they start, and how we comment on and build them.

And it’s hard to ignore the fact that our entertainment media plays into these things as well; after all, they are a creative project, and creative minds tend to comment on the things around them in their work. We see it with film, we see it with music, and we see it with literature.

And believe it or not, we see it with games." (DayZ, Fallout 3, Limbo, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360)
