Can we talk about how video games like Age of Empires/Civilisation etc are conduits to right wing thought about political economy of globalisation?

Simply, they portray human society and civilisations as inherently atomised and singular in their development as well as presenting culture as essentialist.


Also, an anon posted an academic article related to this recently, but I've lost it, if anyone could repost that would be great.

Idk bout AoE but Civilization is far from essentialist. In Civilization all nations have 1 or 2 bonuses but other than that they can do anything that other nations do. It can't really be classified as essentially given that 99% of gameplay is interchangeable. Memes such as Ghandi launching nukes shows that players know it's a silly game.

>>9388
Agreed, if anything Civilization will spawn each civilization near terrain that benefits its unique bonuses, in other words, you could interpret the bonuses arising from people adapting to the local environment. Civ infact, has a crude historical materialist outlook. The fact that people might interpret the game as essentializing human civilizations is more caused by the dominance of idealism in popular culture.

>Civilisation

Actually no, Civ is kinda materialistic despite minor bonuses civs get, the success of a Civ is 90% based on external/material factors

An essentialist game is actually EU4
>>

 No.9396

if I remember correctly it used to be clowned on but the existence of "Barbarians" in Civ (although possibly recently removed? I stopped playing after 5) is pretty essentialist. a group of people who fundamentally, cannot be civilized, even though they operate like a civilization, in some games outright equivocated with wolves.

Is the relinking of the fire like capitalism? Trying to keep it going means it comes back weaker and weaker despite all their efforts to keep the fire going.

Depends, maybe their power is based on belief. You can only be harmed or helped by the gods if you believe you can.

The answer is not to remove the fine but to make the fine PROGRESSIVE and linked to a scale based on the wealth of the person who committed the crime.
Thus a billionaire who commits a violation has to pay millions of dollars but an average joe who commits a violation can pay like idk 5 Euros lol

>it's hard to find fantasy that isn't filled with Great Man bullshit
Almost by definition do fantasy settings have magic and otherworldly powers where a single individual can radically change the entire world. If it bothers you so much that worlds with fucking dragons in them don't follow the same historical trends of earth then maybe go look for another genre.

Oh kind of like the gods in the Super Natural series. Gods power scale with the people believe in them. In the series a lot of pagan gods basically have to resort to being serial killers to keep enough power to still be immortal.
Yahweh , his angels, and the demons have all the power because people still worship or fear them.

I finished this game for the first time a week or so ago, it was really great, played through with my BF and enjoyed it thoroughly.

I can only emphasise the other good stuff people have said in this topic about it, I will say that I was expecting there to be more combat (since there's pretty much none) but I'm not disappointed in what ended up happening. I found the bit with the phasmid at the end to be really beautiful, also.

I've been trying to complete this game since it released and I can rarely bring myself to play it, and when it I do it's rarely for more than a half hour. The humor is just so fucking grating. Nothing is ever taken seriously. Futurama and Rick & Morty are an enjoyable format for &lt30min segments. Not for hours of open world gameplay wherein every character is the butt of some joke.

I really want to enjoy it, I also really want to finish the main story, but I just want the jokes to fucking stop.

I think this is a big problem with modern writing, the constant dumb jokes and nothing ever being taken seriously. There's moments for humour and moments for seriousness but these people can never take it seriously. I mean soldiers like to have fun and goof off and shit when they're just waiting around but when they're in actual combat? No, they get serious and cold-blooded and shit.

I'm a newbie player of creed series. I just finished AC Liberation HD & AC Brotherhood. And about to play AC IV Black Flag. I kinda interest with creed since the stories about rebellion, uprising, & well…. anything us leftists want to be. Discuss anything.
