I've seen Catholic pastors less preachy than the average modern Ubisoft game (or any modern production, to be honest).It's funny how you somehow manage to completely miss the point. My point was never to point out that all games are political because they aren't. The point was to highlight the double standards regarding politics on video games that can be observed in gaming discourse and especially on GAF.
Bioshock, and all of those so called "political games", have the one thing modern day Ubisoft lacks: subtlety. It's the difference between good writing and bad writing.
And calling out bad writing is not a double standard.
Subnautica couldn't be more blatant about its antigun message if it tried. It's still one of my favorite games of all time.
Because it's not the point of the story. It's about surviving alone on a planet and trying to escape. Everything else is just ancillary to the narrative.
