Is this just more marketing or are Nazis a big enough Internet rage-cage to write an article about?

The problem is that the left has been labeling anyone that disagrees with them as nazis
And the marketing team for wolfestein is trying to score good boy points with them with the "lets get rid of the """nazis""" nudge nidge wink wink" stuff

I don't like nazis, but I'm tired of killing nazis. I really am. It's like picking on the same retard in the wheelchairs again. I'm just so tired of it just like I'm tired of brown WWII shooters. I don't want to kill a nazi in a vidya ever again.

First nu-Wolfenstein was barely 6/10 anyway. I'm done with the series.

Except it's normal people who aren't physically and mentally deficient communists like yourself that hate this shit.

And it isn't because they are promoting "anti-Naziism", it's because they are promoting literal communism. In 50 years time people will look back at your ideology much like we do now with the inquisition, and wonder "how backward and disgusting could anybody be to be like this?"

Better find out about the "Nazis" saying this communist propaganda is shit and dox them, right? That's all you cowards are good for.

Its undoubtedly just marketing. Killing Nazis in games is nothing new, in fact its terribly cliche.

Bethesda is just cashing in on current year politics and is pulling a female Ghostbusters. If anyone doesnt like the game you can brush them off as a nazi now, its impossible to give it legit criticism now.

in this game you go around murdering soldiers just trying to make ends meet because some people did some evil things literally decades earlier

Nazis is one thing, but recently the political climate is really very high strung, anything remotely right of centre is seen as unambiguously evil and branded 'nazi' by the leftists, and this game doesn't help that sentiment at all

Smart marketing gimmick to capitalise on current events.
For one, "hey you can kill nazis" makes the game sound fresh even though it isn't.
Also, in situations like >>144402899 it's getting a lot of retweets and exposure, including from some well known youtubers, so it's getting the game out there.

It's nothing surprising.

This is called "plausible deniability". The marketing team has almost expertly masterminded this scenario in such a way that if you state you are offended by this due to the current political climate that has the term "nazi" being thrown left and right, you are suddenly thrust in a position where you must claim that Wolfenstein has never been about killing (real) nazis and you must defend nazism in general (see: the responses in the article >>144402899 of tweets making fun of the offended people, they will be your opposition and trying to argue them will make you look like a triggered idiot).

I actually applaud them for this, Bethesda is the last place I'd expect 4D chess from.

No. It's just that the left calls anyone that disagrees with them a Nazi. I've seen black women called "Nazi" simply for being conservative.

The truth is, there's almost nobody alive that's an actual Nazi, just a very small group of people that don't really exist outside of the internet.

>Hines explained that in the upcoming game, freeing America is just the first step to freeing a world in which the Nazis won. In that way, Wolfenstein’s setting is similar to Philip K. Dick’s novel, “The Man in the High Castle.”
>“Our campaign leans into that sentiment, and it unfortunately happens to highlight current events in the real world,” continued Hines, who added that Bethesda was in no way prescient of the rise of both the alt-right and their far-left counterparts, Antifa.

You're implying everyone goes through Reddit first before 4chan. The thing about /pol/ is that it attracts disgruntled men who want to rage at the world with almost no filter and relative anonymity. These type of people would skip websites where an account is required to post, especially in a heavily moderated environment that belies leftist groupthink.

Redditors swing far left, the only reason they come over to /v/ is to antagonize and false flag against what they perceive to be "angry white virgin gamers." Most of the posts being called >>>/pol/ are false flags. Sometimes anons even samefag their false flag with "go back to /pol/" with the intention to turn other anons against their strawman, and promote their leftist groupthink here.

>>144402872

It's not that Wolfenstein is anti-nazi, it's that they used the MAGA slogan when denouncing them:

"Make America Nazi-Free Again"

CORRECTION:

***WOLFENSTEIN FANS*** are not happy about wolfenstein ii's marketing campaign being politicized and used to demonize right-wing americans!


> Pete Hines, Bethesda's VP for PR and marketing, did not back down from the game's anti-Nazi stance. If anything, he reassured that anti-Nazism is what Wolfenstein has always been about.

>"Wolfenstein has been a decidedly anti-Nazi series since the first release more than 20 years ago. We aren't going to shy away from what the game is about,"

says some Bethesda PR fuck who has only owned the franchise for a few years and has nothing to do with its most popular and renown games.


wolfenstein was simply a game about single-handedly killing really badass nazi super soldiers while being an even more badass american GI commando

eventually additional themes like zombies ++ occult magic ++ GMO nazis ++ sexy nazi babes were added

but wolfenstein was never about politics.

it was a fucking video game where u r were badass dude killing badass nazis in dank locations.
using the franchise as an excuse to call average right-wing americans nazis for the bazillionith time is not only dumb PR but REALLY BAD marketing when you stop and think about who the 'average wolfenstein franchise consumer' is... most likely semi-patriotic, most likely right wing, probable gun/military/alternate history enthusiasts.
