One might also take into consideration, that a majority of games reflect a Conservative bias, as in, Freedom, Liberty and conquering evil/Communism  and bad guys in general, the core of majority games.
So yes, it sends a solid message, one that does sink into these blank slate minds.


A new survey released by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) reveals that Americans who identify as gamers could be one of the most influential groups of voters in the 2016 presidential election.

The survey, commissioned by the ESA and conducted by global market research firm Ipsos, polled 4,147 Americans aged 18 and older who reported playing video games for at least three to four hours each week. More than 80 per cent of respondents indicated that they plan to vote in next year’s presidential election, higher than the 75 percent among the non-gaming public. In 2012, the figures were 79 per cent of gamers and 69 per cent of non-gamers.

The survey also reveals that gamers’ political orientations are highly diffuse, with 48 per cent of respondents identifying as conservative, 38 per cent as liberal, and 14 per cent as “other.” Party affiliation is also fairly evenly split, with 38 per cent of respondents reporting they are Republican/Tea Party voters, 38 per cent Democrats, and 24 per cent Independents.

Interesting.  It's what I sense about the 'serious' gaming-community that drives the market.  It's rife with individuality.   

On-screen, conservatism and conservative-values are everywhere.  They transfer over to the real world pretty flawlessly.  You work for something, and you save it. 

Freedom is worth protecting.  It's illogical to fritter it away.

Sure, paradoxes exist though.  But the edge will always lean conservative.

Exactly!
I believe the the market is ripe for a quality political game, one where both party's vie for the vote, and God knows how they both buy it with taxpayer dollars.
But can you imagine the teaching tool, where libs actually see how they're being played for the pawns they are?
They'd see they are being made slaves of the govt, that with every new law they institute, they lose a bit more Liberty.

You're right, but it'll take over a dozen MB's to create 2-Party/Libertarian outcomes. 

Overcoming cliches in writing a plot wouldn't be hard.  It's writing all the possible consequences. 

The inspiration of this guy would help;

No doubt it would be a massive undertaking.
It might be easier to create a franchise and start at the beginning with our Founding, and how events such as tyranny and dissension were viewed, where Liberty and Freedom were front and center in our establishing our govt.
In other words, educate the youth re: our Founding Principles, and move forward in time from there.

First person shooter, anyone? :biggrin:

I decided to post it here, rather than start a new thread.  Now she can subvert conservative-values with another protecting the children false-flag.
