Political Ideology and Skyrim Reviews

Posted by | January 19, 2012

Normally, we here at Vox don’t get much into politics, because at the end of the day, the play’s the thing. Then, I came across a review of Bethesda’s Skyrim which started out, “As a conservative, I’m always a little bit wary when it comes to video game storytelling. Game development studios, if you ask me, have a decidedly liberal bias.” The article then goes on to consider Fallout 3: New Vegas as an indictment of the failure of democracy, and then finds time to consider Skyrim itself in a thoroughly political light. While Poe’s Law prevents me from making any judgements, I did find the review interesting enough to pass along. The Tech has the story.

    Maybe it’s just me, but if you’re the type to confine the whole of human experience into terms of “liberal” and “conservative,” then perhaps you need to get out more.
