Tell me some games that have agendas in them. Hidden agendas, blatant agendas, I don't mind. I'm just interested.
And are these messages the whole point of said game, or just part of the background fluff?
>fat people will die well before you will
Isn't Braid an anti-nuclear war message?
>rawr rawr nintendo don't you dare make anything that might ever offend anyone ever
Zora have a history of fatness. Look at the Zora King in OoT, or the drummer in Majora's Mask.
It's probably because Deku Skrubs and Gorons can't really be shown as fat, since their shape is naturally rotund.
>Being fat isn't a sign of lacking self-control
Technically it's not. It can also be a sign of you just not giving a shit about yourself.
I'm fine with a fat person wanting to be fat and not give a shit, but the minute they start to say it's 'healthy' or some tumblr-tier shit then I roll my eyes. Eat and be whatever you want, it's your life, but at least accept it's cutting years off your life.
what the fuck do fatasses have in mind when trying to justify their problem? i dont have a problem with fat people, but justifying it just creates a precedent that being obese is okay.
either way they will die before me, and thats satisfying enough
"The twist comes at the end when we're not so sure that he's such a great guy, and the bad guy the girl is running away from might just be you. For some, Braid ends with the player catching the girl, who, just as they finally meet, sets off a bomb a la Terminator 2. The screen goes bright and most believe that this is an anti-nuclear war message. Off screen, a voice intones: "Now we are all sons of bitches."
A quote that can be directly tied to Kenneth Bainbridge, one of the heads of the Trinity atomic bomb tests."
Yo what the fuck man. This is actually a thing.
>being fat... is not a sign of lacking self control
It was like ironic reddit posting. There was literally more people on 4chan spamming "le" at any one time than on reddit.
I know I shouldn't ever defend Tumblr - and honestly usually it is a lot like /v/ says - but I remember one time
when I used to go on Tumblrwhere I saw a long post with pictures about a guy who had nearly been raped. Basically his girlfriend (or wife, I can't remember) got drunk and threatened him with a broken bottle, and he got a few cuts when he tried to talk her down. She was apparently laughing the whole time about how he was a man, she couldn't push him around, if he really wanted to he could just snap her neck or whatever. And the guy also pointed out the bias when he eventually went to counseling towards his relationship partner, since guys obviously are the bad guys in abusive relationships.
Now, this was one time - and I never honestly saw the like again - but sometimes Tumblr does get both sides of the issue.
>mfw i smoke and have asthma and heart problems
Was that the army guy that let his wife/gf hit him with a glass bottle or whatever and regretted going to the police because that got him into even more shit? He ends with the moral of the story being that if a woman attacks you should move away and not tell anyone.
For 99% of fat people, being fat is a choice.
You can't choose your race. You can't choose your region of birth. You can't choose physiological mental disorders/deficiencies.
But you can choose whether or not you shove fucking food in your mouth.
>But food is an addiction.
And so is smoking. And everyone makes fun of smokers all the time.
They don't mean the same thing. Because self control is dependent upon you first wanting something. And then you control yourself toward your goal. If you don't care to remain thin, then there is no reason to control yourself toward that state. Since it's not your goal.
Bioshock Infinite remains one of the most blasphemous games I've played to this day. The entire objective of the game is to prevent Booker from being baptised! It's redemption by suicide.
inb4 some brain dead retard mentions that stupid rule or whatever it is about how it's SOOO HARD to tell the difference between satire and craziness when really they're just fucking dense.
>Tell me some games that have agendas in them
super tofu boy.
it's a peta protest against super meat boy.
as for actual games - they usually contain a subtle undertone or 'message' at most. blatant and consistent agendas are very rare.
like, play gta4. it'll have some over-the-top parodies of realiy in it that could be interpreted as vaguely referencing or mocking some aspects of contemporary american culture. the ads and news on the radio for example.
>obsession with material goods, consumerism
>loose gun laws
but in the end, these are minor parts of the game. the parodies still work as jokes on their own, the storyline doesn't serve to communicate a 'message', the characters aren't written to make a point.
likewise, take fallout.
>nuclear weapons are dangerous
>war leads to horrible things
>values of peacetime quickly break down in harder times
but these are all gimmicks at most. irrelevant to the game at large.
>Hidden agendas, blatant agendas, I don't mind. I'm just interested.
you won't find many games explicitly made with an agenda like a michael moore film is. maybe some very obscure niche thing, but nothing that's even remotely popular or widely known.
>we will all die before the heat death of our universe
most of the fact people i know are ashamed of their fat and want to lose it but feel that they can't
i guess im just the guy every feels they can talk to. mainly i dont say anything and then BAM he's crying in front of me and telling me how he feels like he's got no self control. i guess the advantage of being a quiet person is that other people will project a personality onto you. the bad thing is that sometimes i can't live up to that personality so now i feel ive got a moral responsibility to "be" somebody, so as to not tempt anybody into projecting something on to me.
