Is Far Cry 2 a leftist game? It's setting is Africa and it's factions are based on groups that vy for power in Africa with mercenaries on either side and the main antagonist "The Jackal" who sells weapons to both groups and who despite doing this he heavily criticizes the US exploiting Africa for cheap goods people in the US use.

Really interesting that both factions use socialist iconography, but are in pratice just warlords fighting for a chance to sell out their country. Kind of wish the game properly delved into the ideological makeup of each group and how Western influence gradually corrupts them in the absence of a powerful international socialist movement.

Well the APR(Alliance for Popular Resistance) is anti- communist with ironically a red star that's common to communist movements. The UFLL(United Front For liberation and Labour) is the faction that gets called communist. But you're right in that it's just a front for warlords and most definitely the MIC and private arms dealing with the obvious thing being that an American is the one selling the weapons to both factions. Funnily one of the tapes you hear the guy justify his work saying that he's simply selling oppressed peoples the means for their "self defense" when the US would just drop drones on them but it really is just a hollow justification because he's very much serving the MIC by selling arms.

bullshit far cry 3 is better, notably vaas made shitting on anglos pretty fucking funny and much more common. casual dialogue in-game(and other promotional media) brings up the blatant exploitation/myopia of imperialist dipshits. bonus points for the prevalence of red within his faction( about 50/50 on whether this was the actual intention by devs )

I think the fact that neither of them have any understandable ideological component is intentional. It's just a typical warlord shit civil war between 'Alliance for Democracy' and 'Democratic Alliance'.

The circle is complete. Those of us who grew up playing Far Cry had this same reaction when we saw Better Call Saul.

i also played Far Cry 3 years before BCS started, it was cool to see him in it

 No.24278

Just got it. Seems cool, the enviroment reminds me of MGSV even when it runs 20-30fps. Makes me wanna play it again.
But what is the buddy system for really? I know they can come and revive you but is it anything like in FC5, can you call them for fire support?

Basically you do missions for them and they can revive you (or vice-versa if they get downed)
One of them is a qt communist chick
