Politics is a risky business. And with Presidential Pong and an education simulation of gerrymandering now swimming in the public, video games are encroaching ever closer to it. If the barrage of criticisms against Bully before it was released is any indication, video games can make people react and reflect on current social and political constructs. Indeed, the power in art is its ability to disturb the norm, what we think is correct, and so a vindication of games as art can be found in this way.- which begs the question: How political should games become? Is the current political state of video games healthy, lacking, or in excess?
