Are horror games the last bastion of anti-imperialism and leftism in the video game industry?
>Government experimenting with bioweapons research on prisoners
>Corporations profiting off the research
>Innocent proles who accidentally stumble onto their black sites getting arrested on dubious charges and thrown into the prison industrial complex
>Robots answering to Porky who can kill workers on demand
>Experimenting gets out of control (just like Covid) and Porky deciding to cover it all up by killing everyone

No. Every fucking piece of medium these days is "anti-capitalist", and none of them go anywhere beyond the most superficial criticism of wealth inequality or attempt to imagine solutions. And that goes for every other social issue too - racism, sexism, homophobia, global warming. Acknowledge an issue, proclaim it bad, the end. Pure capitalist realism. Disco Elysium is the only game I can thing of that actually tackles these issues.

??? Isn't Disco Elysium literally capitalist realism because the commies got BTFO and have no means of staging a revolution again and the last one you meet is the murderer you've been trying to find who is a literal schizo who got taken over by an alien showing how pathetic they've become?

By the end it's implied another revolution is about to happen, so not really. And the Deserter is a schizo both because he was influenced by pheromones and also because he's been isolated for decades after watching the whole world brutally destroy his comrades

A nationalist one and not a communist one though.

Idk if it is dependent on your game choices, but it was implied to be left wing uprising.

It's the RCP, whose leadership is implied to at least be decended from the remnants of the Commune
