When Ubisoft revealed the first trailer for Far Cry 5 back in mid-2017, Jews and leftists rubbed their hands with collective glee. Here was a game that seemed to have it all: a white-majority cast who are armed to the teeth, a rural Montana setting and a narrative based around a cult with apparent Christian influences.
In other words, the perfect recipe for an anti-white, anti-gun, anti-Christian and anti-American propaganda piece.
Alas, the game – released two days ago – ended up being something else.
Presumably disturbed by the poor sales of Mass Effect: Andromeda and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (two AAA titles that shoved a vicious progressive agenda down their audience’s throats), Ubisoft decided to play it safe with Far Cry 5 and create a game that is, for the most part, apolitical.
Unsurprisingly, several critics, most notably Paul Tassi of Forbes Magazine, are none too happy about it.
While I’m not going to dock it loads of review score points for not having social commentary, or really, any inclusion of politics at all, I do find it kind of hilarious and bizarre just how much Far Cry 5 steers away from taking a position on well, anything.
It’s true that Far Cry 5 was being conceived and built before the frenzied political climate in the US escalated to where it is now, but in practice, it’s more than a little strange to see a game set in rural America where players form a resistance to fight a militant Christian cult and it just has…nothing to say. Nothing at all, one way or another.
Hmm… what should Far Cry 5 have said, Mr. Tassi?
Let’s find out!
Race and Gender
You might think that a religious cult in rural Montana might be forced to address issues of race or gender, but simply put, neither exist in the world of Far Cry. Women and men fight alongside one another on both sides of the conflict. Race is literally not mentioned once. Despite Eden’s Gate and the Seed family giving off some extremely white supremacist vibes in their conceptualization and their iconography, they truly are colorblind. Both sides have white, black and Asian fighters, you, the lead character, can be any race you want and it has zero effect on the story whatsoever. Eden’s Gate may want to kill you, but it’s definitely not because you’re not white. Truly, a forward-thinking murderous cult.
So… that’s good, right?
I mean, aren’t these leftists all about egalitarianism? Isn’t colorblindness one of the many disabilities that they consider desirable and healthy?
What is this journalist complaining about here?
Oh yeah: that this game isn’t the white genocide simulator he was hoping it would be.
Don’t expect any commentary on guns or gun ownership in a game that is built entirely around them. Is it a good idea that a cult can militarize itself to the point of ridiculousness thanks to weapon availability in America? Who knows? We, the Resistance, have guns too, so we just shoot better than the cult and are able to win the war. Why does everyone in this tiny town have access to military grade hardware? Who cares! Moving on.
Translation: The game was supposed to spit upon the Second Amendment and expose the need for goy control (sorry, gun control), but it didn’t.
What a wasted opportunity!
Alright fine, we can ignore all these other issues, but does Far Cry 5 have anything at all to say about its central topic, organized religion, specifically Christianity? Not…really. The game goes out of its way to make it clear that even if Eden’s Gate is spun out of Christianity, it is wildly far removed from it. Yes, it uses words like “God” and “Sin” and “Eden,” but the game makes it explicit that this is not “real” religion. Jesus is never mentioned, and the Seeds never quote Bible verses.
If Eden’s Gate isn’t really Christian, why should the game make a statement about Christianity? How would that make sense?
These journalists really are kiked beyond repair. They’re basically complaining that a video game – something intended to provide escapism from the world – isn’t promoting a narrative that undermines their people, nation and president. They don’t outright say it, of course, but that’s the implication.
Not that I’m surprised. Society has catered to these people for so long that they should be shocked that a AAA game didn’t conform to their expectations. For some of them, this might be the first time that’s ever happened.
But the tides are turning. Video games remain a predominantly white and Asian pastime, and gamers have been voting with their wallets for years now. The Witcher 3 did better than Dragon Age: Inquisition. Pillars of Eternity did better than Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear.
And Far Cry 5 is set to do much better than Wolfenstein II.
