Wildcard & Far Wanderer hit the nail on the head for me. As a gamer, I don't want my escapism dealing with RL issues, not directly! I don't want a game that "deals directly and intelligently" with ANY of the issues you mentioned in your article. I want visceral amusement - period.

I found this article interesting and intelligent - if very misguided and troubling.

Personally I want to keep serious, real politics out of my videogames. I get enough politics just watching the TV or reading a newspaper... Or browsing the internet for that matter! I'm quite happy with only being visually amused. After all, that is the backbone of this industry.

Many people are forgetting: most of the really big companies are tied together at the top.
Or the at deeds of ownership, as it were.
And thus a few persons' opinions push the industry.
