Pro Military Gaming's Ryse Up contemplates why a re-release of Final Fantasy VII may be met with unwanted media attention because of themes involving terrorism and anti-capitalism in a post 9/11 world.
Well that was far fetched. As if it would be the only game to touch those themes these days..
Why is it far fetched, Wintersun616? It may not be the only game to do so but with potentially millions of copies to be sold I would think it would make headlines. MW2's "No Russian" mission didn't even force gamers to kill innocents and it was talked about for weeks. FFVII begins its first mission with your protagonist on a mission destroy a reactor. In this day and age I think its reasonable to assume that none gamers would react negatively if they were given only a half truth about this amazing game.
I see what you mean, but blowing up a reactor in a fantasy setting is pretty far from killing innocent civilians in a modern war game. That's what I was thinking when I said it's far fetched IMO, could've made that clear in my first post though.
yeah, Cloud is doing it for all the right reasons......
Does anyone else see it from perspective or am I being to pessimistic when it comes to public opinion and the mass media?
