Slavery: The Game: Is This Too Far?


"Every now and again, games are made not because they are making a bold statement about society, or because they provide some manner of artistic value, but simply for the sake of controversy.

"A new game that appears to be trying to ride the notoriety train to success is Slavery: The Game.

"Yes, you read that correctly. Slavery: The Game.

"Currently in development by Javelin Reds Gaming, Slavery is an RTS centered on, as the name implies, slavery.

"Now, really: is this even necessary? And is this going too far?"

I don't think it's going too far. Few people seemed to have a problem with slaughtering innocent people in MW2, although it was a choice. There's a choice between buying this game and not buying this game. Just because something exists doesn't mean you have to acknowledge it. Anyone who thinks this will have a negative impact on their own lives, solely because of its theme, shouldn't be exposed to games.

Yeah, but... whoever thought this was a good idea is just...

The author is misled if he believes the majority of slavery happened in America.

Regardless, this is not a game idea worthwhile for anyone, and a bit insulting to those races who's ancestors had to endure those hardships.

I'm of mixed race, and I'm not in the least bit insulted or offended. But that's just me.

There are a LOT of racist game out there, mainly on the PC. I'm not surprised by this, but to anyone reading this article, please be mature and don't buy this. Please respect the people that went through these hardships. I hate to see games such as this, but it's a free country.

it doesnt go far enough -

You guys are naive as they come, because a game has a title all of sudden you cant handle it

What do you think you have been playing for years, age of empires who do you think gets your wood, your stone, slaves, wheres your out cry for a game showing slavery

This country has become so weak to labels its pathetic. you can make a movie about anything and put a rating on it you can make art to portray anything, but games and their creation is off limits - naive as they come some of you

Humans were slaves from the get go , all of us, were slaves to religion were slaves daily to jobs, get over it - life is life, now get on with yours

Nice edit.

How you're getting disagreed with just goes to show how the majority of the N4G community are mindless sheep. You're right in every aspect related to this article. People if you disagree, at least leave a reply detailing why.
