"Wolfenstein II" Angers Nazis With "Make America Nazi-Fee Again" Slogan

Submitted by: daegog 2 months ago in Entertainment Games


The right spends so much time defending Nazis these days.

An excerpt from Newsweek: The video game Wolfenstein II, the latest iteration of an exercise in killing virtual Nazis, has angered Nazis with an online presence because it is about... killing Nazis.

A certain subgroup of folks got angry online with the game-maker, Bethesda Softworks, for producing a product that thinks Nazis are bad. Many claimed they weren't angry about the anti-Nazi stance per se, but rather that the game was tapping into liberal anger. Certainly it is political to co-opt President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan, but Bethesda Softworks is hardly the first one to play with the line made famous by the billionaire Republican.

if the term "Nazi" didn't mean hating people who don't believe in what you do America could easily become Nazi free, I hate people because their assholes but if that asshole just HAPPENS to be black I'm a Nazi according to super left wing people

cobrakiller did you play the prequel old blood as well? i played through the new order on my xbox 360, and im thinking about picking it and the old blood up in a 2-pack for my xbox one before i pick up new colossus, but im wondering if its worth it. i also want to get dying light the following enhanced edition, i might just get both and spend all my monies.

robthelurker I did not.  I hate prequels in all forms.  Knowing how things turn out makes me enjoy a story a lot less.

cobrakiller fair enough. there are some good prequels out there though, nothing comes to mind at this moment, but there are some good ones. annabelle creation was a pretty good prequel of a prequel, if youre into those movies.

robthelurker Once I learned that all of the Warren's stories were completely fabricated, I lost interest in those movies.

It was my fault for doing research after seeing the conjuring.  But, I hate "Based on Actual Events" movies when the events are easily found to be BS.

cobrakiller i actually knew about the story of annabelle the raggedy ann doll years before the first conjuring came out. i was disappointed with how much was just made up for the movies, but i still enjoy them.

robthelurker fair enough? So it's alright just to sit out on what was a good game, just because you're full of it? A good game is a good game, Old Blood was 20 buckaroos on release, and for the money, it was fucking phenomenal.
Like stories matter anyways. I was too busy shooting fools to have a clue what was supposed to matter.

thething911 it is totally fair if cobrakiller doesnt want to bother with sequels when he already knows how its going to end, just like its totally fair for you not to care about the story when youre too busy killin nazis. i need story in my video games, most of the time. if theyre wasnt a story, i would never have fallen in love with prince of persia as much as i did, there needs to be context as to why a persian prince is running up and down walls fighting sand creatures. there are some games out there, like knights of the old republic and mass effect, where half the game is story and dialogue between other characters. i personally think people who dont watch prequels are missing out on some great things (unless we are talking about star wars). and besides, what is a prequel? just something that comes first. so while iron man isnt technically a prequel to iron man 2, because iron man 2 came after, my question is, would someone who doesnt like prequels not bother to watch the iron man, captain america and thor movies after seeing avengers?

robthelurker I see what you are saying there.  I would say first, it is their fault for missing them in the first place, haha.  Whereas when it is the production company who decides to put out the first part of the story after the second part, I lose interest because nothing will shock me.

Second, Captain America, Thor, and Ironman after watching avengers still works because those movies can be watched as separate episodes instead of a seamless story.

My personal opinion obviously.

There are three things that can get a "pg13" rating in video games...it is OK to kill Zombies, Aliens and Nazis.   IDK which I prefer but I'll be happy to kill them all.
