It's satire. Unfortunately, it's lost on some people. The Boys is satire but didn't face backlash until season 3 when a certain demographic suddenly realized they were one of the targets of the satire and then lost their minds.

Media literacy is needed. But it's easy with Starship Troopers the movie, it's menipean. But the book? It's juvenalian satire, like Fight Club.

I would like to know why anyone downvote this obvious fact.

FFS it’s a game, no b need to read so much into the “message”

No, it's still a literary text.

Anything written as fiction has to be broken down. Only stupid idiot dorks think that we should ignore a game's messages.

I would imagine the people that don't see the satire in games like this are quite young and not very well read.

The first time I watched starship troopers as a child I couldn't understand and probably hated the over the top bravado and the pearly white teeth but now much older I see the satire and think now it's a one of a kind film
I'll ask the last helldivers I sent down how they feel about all this but the last I heard was the last 5 never made it out of the crater they dropped into , I do admit sending them solo on extreme brought a hint of guilt but in my defence they got extra pudding before setting off
I would advise young adults to watch the movie the life of Brian it'll set you up for a great life
