remember Daragon age inquisition where you went around and planted a reskinned roman flag on every forest and hill and village and it popped with the "your a good dog" sound and said "land/resource claimed 4 the inquisition"
no but only because i played the first ten minutes of that game and it annoyed me so much i never went back to it
my sister is deeply obsessed with Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and pretending to have a fictional illness called “chronic fatigue syndrome”, and as such is a delight to have a conversation with
chronic fatigue syndrome is real, fortunately the same cannot be said for video games, for which the evidence is spurious and inconclusive
marx will literally do this instead of going to therapy

“chronic fatigue syndrome”
videogames are tiresome so
Understanding illness and health as a chemical-biological function is a form of liberalism,
what does this even mean?
i get the sense that this is not known here.
actually we are understood to be aware of it

Mass Effect is a game series where the cowardly civilians say “if only someone completely amoral could do the correct genocides” and then the brave, strong troops say, “I will do the correct genocides.”
sounds like its the call of duty of video games
i got that disco elysium after all. haven't played much yet but it's pretty charming (or at least it is now i turned the narrator voice off). reminds me of an old lucasarts point and click adventure game more than anything.
won't spoil the ending but it does some amazing things with male loneliness/alienation/sexual frustration, so much so that i have a very "art as saviour" liberal idea that if only sad incels played the game they might not murder women or whatever. just a fleeting bit of liberalism. sorry about it
in mass effect 2, as far as i recall, you play commander shepard, americas #1 army person, after being rebuilt by the continuity 3rd reich who fished your dead body from spaceland. you now work for spacehitler and are given a copy of your ship, staffed with dopplegangers imitating your old crew but with a much higher amount of ass and an enthusiasm for the waffen-ss or something. anyway, your misgivings are quickly assured because even though u are alive it turns out that the army dont even respect u as an amerian veteran and this means you are left with little choice but to to embrace your inner hitler. im sure somethign else happens after this - aliens or some shit.
yeah it was pretty funny how like a third of the optional side missions in the first game was you hunting down and destroying this ultra-xenophobe dead-end KKK militia movement. then in the second game it turns out the KKK is run by a secret central Democrat Party Klavern that both rules and hates all the other KKK members. in the DemoKKKrat hub they, Actually, accept all races and want to save the galaxy and have the budget of the entire United States Planet Earth Air Force, which is convenient because it meant BioWare could just use all the same assets. which raises the question of why that's even the premise of the second game, a question the game and series never answer because the real answer is just a horrible greasy Canadian nerd doing a Heil Hitler salute at a bookshelf full of Robert Heinlein under a Barack Obama HOPE poster.
