War Games (2005)

Curated by Elisa Harkins
Editorial description Comments (0)

Designers and programmers are being acknowledged this year for creating games as social commentary. Many PC games motivate your interaction by placing you in a kill or be killed setting, while other games typically encourage winning as your objective. Contrary to mainstream games, the games we have selected call your attention to the story and place importance on inaction as well as action. They illustrate polemic perspectives on war, terrorism, GMO's, and capitalism. Even though these games make you think about serious issues, they are still fun, creative and masterfully designed. From cute pixel flash games to realistic 3-D game mods, these works peacefully exemplify the art of War Games.
