Why Games Need More Subtext 28 Apr, 2008, 16:02 / 8 comments

Gamasutra have written an interesting article called "Why More Games Need More Subtext," which includes a section on Full Throttle.

The fact that both this article and that one share the same title is completely and utterly coincidental, but should Mojo be down later it will be because they sued us for copyright infringement. If you click on the site in a few hours and we're not here, simply lynch Gamasutra.

    Interesting article, though I actually would have given GTA even more credit. It's not just a satire about consumer culture and violence, it's a satire of the American Dream (i.e. "rags to riches") and how that dream not only has no moral prerequisites attached but may, actually, only be acheivable in a total moral vacuum.

    :P I wondered if anyone would spot that.

    I knew it was a Chris article once I read in Mojo's writeup that the article called out Full Throttle.

    We'd know for sure it was him if it also dissed Donnie Darko.

    Donnie Darko sucks

    Let's debate at length! I thought it was entirely entertaining, if flawed.

    Now you go.
