‘Wolfenstein’ Has Always Been Anti-Nazi and Nothing Has Changed

Should Wolfenstein change what it’s always been about? No. That’s what makes it unique as a franchise.

Does an article about the obvious really need to be made?

When was being anti-Nazi a bad thing?

ThatDudeMunkee404d ago

Twitter should tell you enough. There's people actually upset by the games theme.

wonderfulmonkeyman404d ago

Those people aren't going to last very long, then.
Nazi-lovers seldom live to a ripe old age, and when they do they're not exactly welcomed in normal social circles.XD

ThatDudeMunkee404d ago

That's for sure. This seemed yo serve true after the riots not long ago.

EatCrow403d ago

Nope. You misunderstand.
Its not the nazis from germany that theyre upset about but the nazi them.
Neo nazi crap that is current.

I love wolfenstein and love killing nazis in the game but I can understand why some who've been labeled "neo-nazis" would have a problem with this kind of theme right now.

"Does an article about the obvious really need to be made?"
with some reactions to this game online i'd say there is sadly.

drunkenspy007403d ago

Since they took refuge in America and no laws or justice stood up to remove them, rather protect them under 'freedom of speech' even though all they speak is hate. Anyway, it's a good thing to be anti-nazi.

generic-user-name403d ago

It's not a bad thing. However it's very easy to get yourself labelled as a Nazi these days.

EatCrow403d ago

Extremely easy. Simply have a different opinion and an open mind and now you're a nazi.
Labels are very dangerous. Communism uses labels to divide and conquer.

I hop people wake up begin to actually treat each other like fellow human beings instead of enemies. We, just recently, were able to look past the color of a persons skin, or his sex, now it seems the media is reopening race wounds and creating ones where they never existed.

Killing Nazis has been a time honored tradition in videogames and various other media for decades now.

Why is it suddenly controversial now?

ThatDudeMunkee404d ago

Seems the game releasing within the current political climate.

Atticus_finch403d ago

Agree %100. Trump has taken the country backwards. What a shame

generic-user-name403d ago

People trying to paint trump supporters as nazis is why.

Silly gameAr403d ago

People trying? Nah, Trump supporters are doing a good job of doing that themselves.

GrubsterBeater403d ago

George Soros, Media Matters, and the mainstream media are to blame for the hysteria.. making all Trump supporters and conservatives seem like racists and Nazis. Then you have these brainwashed, delusional Liberals who believe it. And one day, because of them, the government that THEY create is gonna be counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums, unless they are stopped.

@Silly gamAr
As your name suggests. I dont recall these people calling themselves nazis.
They've been labeled and sooner or later will be hunted.

What @Grubster is not so strange that it hasnt happened before. It can still happen if ignorance and misinformation remains prevalent. Much of the media should be shut down for what they are doing.

Poor Trump supporters. But I bet your okay with Mexicans being labeled rapist and criminals. I bet you didn't say anything when an entire religion was being banned from the U.S. Or when rights are being taken away from woman and Lgbt. Or When Republicans continue to try and take health care away from millions. People are calling Nazis, Nazis, they simply happen to be all Republicans. You don't like it them denounce them.

generic-user-name403d ago

@atticus

If we ever see people start comparing evil Mexicans in a video game with actual Mexicans in real life and thinking they relate to each other, then maybe you can compare. I bet you're ok with the countries (not religions/unless all the American Muslims were exiled??) that were on the ban list, having ban lists of their own. I bet you're quick to paint Christianity as evil when a priest molests a child, but hurries onto social media to post '#notallmuslims' when yet another terrorist attack hits Europe.

I hearby denounce Nazis, wow, great, now people will stop calling innocent Trump supporters Nazis right?

Atticus_finch403d ago

@generic
It's very obvious that being Republicans doesn't make you a Nazi, but that is easy to overlook when people want to defend Nazis and attack the people against nazis.

So you will wait until evil Mexicans in video games are compared to real Mexicans, before you care about the President doing it in real life. Hipocrite! But you pretend to care so much about using the wrong label.

Im not okay with any ban list, Bannin people only ATTEMPTS to cure a symptom. The root of the problem lies with countries that have been destabilized by action of bigger countries, one being USA. Ban won't get you far, these coutries need help, mostly education. The ban and Trump speeches are great recruiting tools for ISIS thou.

When a priest is evil, that's him as an individual. Very easy for me to see that, but why can you and Trump with most Republicans not think the same way because there's a 1 billion Muslims. If they were all bad we would already be dead.

I will say it a different way. Not all Republicans are Nazis but Nazis proudly support Republicans. And so do the white supremacists and KKK.
Republicans and Trump need to stop doing things this racist groups like.

Good on you for denoucing them but remember actions speak louder than words.

yeahright2402d ago

No one is saying all trump supporters are Nazis, but if you are a Nazi/ Nazi sympathizer, you're probably a trump supporter.

You're an idiot if you are offended by a video game

DrKarateChop403d ago

Exactly! Video games don't matter! They aren't art!

ThatDudeMunkee403d ago

How are games not art? This statement has left me perplexed.

EatCrow402d ago

Games are art. And you can be offended. Say a game decides to state that all blacks are not human. I can see some taking offense to that. They just need to see past that to the plot or the point of the game and not singling out the lines and topics used to tell the story.

But yes they can be offensive. But even a bird can be offensive by crashing into someones head. Just be a mature adult and move on. Just a matter of not letting the offense get to you.

WelkinCole404d ago

Yes and I love it because they are absolute scum. Visited my grand uncle's grave in France when my grandfather was still alive. I will never forget it.
