The Political Impressions Of 21st Century Gaming

Gaming has always had something to say. It has however become an increasingly unmistakable advocate and forceful interpreter of meaningful political discourse. This rise in political connectivity and the inter-relevance of popular media and the politics that shapes the society that consumes it has never been more relevant than in recent years. As more people choose to interact with the gaming medium so to do the gaming developers with the truly meaningful discourses. If gaming can claim to have anyone fundamentally decisive ability to shape the world it exists within, its ability to influence the minds of its audience is perhaps the greatest and most persuasively compelling one.
