That’s fair. I just often feel the need to point out that Far Cry 2 is an interesting tonal and systemic experiment for Big Games which means a lot of its bad ideas go overlooked
Also, I sincerely believe Far Cry 4 does not get enough credit for trying to tackle the theme of colonialism in a multi-faceted way. Sure, it’s a game of arbitrary binaries. See that torturer from the US? He’s also a good dad! Things are way more complex than you think! Well done, Alex you have recognised that people can’t be boiled down to a single character trait.
Nevertheless, it walked a fine line between both-sidesing everything and being genuinely open hearing both arguments from each of the resistance leaders and offering serious rebuttals to both. Normally I cringe when games like Dragon Age do this, but Far Cry 4 seemed like it was genuinely curious about what the player thought was the best response to colonialism. And although I’m by no means well-versed in Himalayan culture, there was so much of it in FC4 and it was deeply tied to the narrative
Basically, give Ajay a chance people.
