What does NSG think about this? Brainwashing or Patriotic Education?

I think it might actually be a good move for cultural education, however there is the prevalent fact that Russia could use this to misinform the Russian populace quite a good deal.

As long as private games are still allowed, I'm ok with it!

ask moderation about reading serious moderation candidates TGs without telling them about it until afterwards and/or apparently refusing to confirm/deny the exact timeline of TG reading ~~~ i hope you never sent any of the recent mods or the ones that got really close anything personal!

signature edit: confirmation has been received. they will explicitly do it before and without asking. they can look at TGs basically whenever they want so please keep this in mind when nominating people for moderator or TGing good posters/anyone!

It's wrong, but it's still not at all different from popular games in the United States such as the Call of Duty series. There's actually strong pro-American patriotic and obvious anti-Russian themes, so I can see why some Russians want to rid many stereotypes against them.

As far as I can tell, this is the first statement the government has made on the matter, the previous actions being due to (reasonable, in my opinion,) outcry against the content of the game. Showing Russian soldiers burning civilians alive in their own country, machine gunning their own people and generally being incompetent to an impossible degree is kind of offensive.

Russia's Government isn't going to fund that crap. Heck, the Government is seriously considering CoE Recommendations to overturn the anti-Gay law. And as for racism, Russia's Government is fervently fighting against racism.

Actually yes, by the end of MW2 the Americans are seen as evil also thanks to General Shepherd's douchebaggery.

The only call of duty games I would say aren't horribly pro-American are the World war 2 ones.
