It's time to get serious about serious games

VGW's Chris Totten: "As for violence and subject matter, developers and publishers of popular titles certainly have it in their power to increase the sophistication of their content. This isn’t to say that developers should stop making the games that make them money. Designers like Suda 51 often put social or political issues at the forefront of their game narratives. Former Rockstar director Navid Khonsari is even working on a game based on the events of the 1979 U.S. Embassy takeover in Iran." (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, PC, PS3, Six Days in Fallujah, World of Warcraft, Xbox 360)
