A Video Game About The Holocaust

Kotaku - Video games, as a general rule, do not cover serious tragedies, mostly because there aren't a lot of ways to get satisfying gameplay out of something like the Holocaust. (Culture)

Wow, really?

Who the Hell thought this would make a good game? This is beyond pathetic and racist!

Who the hell thought killing cops and sleeping with prostitutes would make a good game?

Oh, yea....

It's all a matter of perspective.

I am not sure he read the premise of this game. And the game itself might really help people understand history.

Entirely not the same thing.

Why not? movies are aloud to display the holocaust in a very realistic way (to a certain extent), why not games? I only read books in middle school about the holocaust and besides important events I didnt really delved into it much. a mature video game about it would be great and would give me a better perspective on it.

Why?

I can see where this guy is coming from. It would bring a certain level of understanding to some of the more intense moments in history.

How often do you really think about the Jewish people being exterminated when you're killing Nazis in COD, or the oppression of the African American race when playing one of those Civil War strategy games?

I could get behind this. In fact, I will.

"How often do you really think about the Jewish people being exterminated"

Funny that the same people, not all, you seem to be calling compassion for, are now themselves the exterminators of the Palestinians and are land occupiers.. oh yeah, i read history and news on what's going in the world from multiple sources not just one.

Take your shit elsewhere we don't need it here.

Segamon, Completely agree.

Hint, if you dig a little bit deeper, you will come to an understanding that the holocaust is a fabricated history. The sources are in their history, no need to go elsewhere.

Say no to racism
Jyndal  +   229d ago
How is this racism? Did you even read the article or watch the video?

I've always wanted to play a realistic AAA stealth survival game based on the Holocaust where you play as a lonesome young child trying to escape from the nazis. Make it happen Naughty Dog.

all naughty dog games have noting to do with politics or religions ..

Why?

As a student of the holocaust and listening to his video, I don't feel he's going about this the right way. Granted I don't know the right way, but listen to him, this isn't it.

Videogames taking on a serious subject? Yeah, that has a snowball's chance in hell.

Lets kick up the slo-motion shots of Jews dieing and make some scenes black and white with a retro filter.

Then we'll mix in a healthy amount of fake BS melodrama that would make oscar bait look sincere -and we are set.

Go go videogames as a serious Art form go!

Mostly because there aren't ways to get satisfying gameplay? Yea? That's why? Stay classy, Kotaku.
