Despite political themes, Obsidian says The Outer Worlds is "supposed to be humorous" not "politically-charged"
Obsidian's The Outer Worlds will deal with some political themes, but it's not going to be a "politically-charged" game.
Well, obviously, we shouldn't take a lot of games too seriously. I mean, if I play Just Cause, does that imply - drinking tea with Castro? Anyway, though, our society is "indeed too sensitive" and people are probably going to have issues with Outer Worlds. I mean, the idea of "It's just a game!", doesn't work - just like when people say, "It's just a movie!" or "It's just a song!".
O.K., what is your typical reaction to political themed games - and how many have you played? Myself, I think pretty much all war games are politically charged - in a sense, though, it may not seem apparent.
