I’ll See Your Video Game Propaganda And Raise You A Video Game Protest

Anti-Hugo Chavez video game by a company  which denies it has any U.S. Government ties, which is a lie; they’ve done work for the Army before developing simulation games.  The game presents the ruler of Venezuela as a power-mad tyrant, and the country as on the verge of chaos, neither of which is particularly true.

Meanwhile the US Army recruitment MMORPG becomes the site for a rather unique protest:  A user named ‘dead-in-iraq’ stands in place and types out, by hand, the names of American soldiers dead in Iraq, in instant messages to the rest of the users.  If somebody kills his avatar, he just comes back again and does the same thing.  (Via reddit)
