Are Video-Games Putting Children in Danger of the German Nazi Regime in 2017?

Come on. Is the Nazi symbolism in video-games really the problem, or is it the way that society sees World War 2 - in that we simply want to forget the part that we had in the war
Come on. Is the Nazi symbolism in video-games really the problem, or is it the way that society sees World War 2 - in that we simply want to forget the part that we had in the war

There has always been controversy around Nazi symbolism in modern culture because of the widely discriminated skin-heads (you know, the motorcycle gangs that have been formed in Southern US of A colonies in the modern age. They may be better known as “white power”, or the imprisonment groups that form when people are doing hard time, and are down on their luck joining a group within the maximum security prison that can mean life or death when doing long years in these violent conformities.

The German Nazi regime was not anything to do with the so-called “white power” movement, as the modern age has moved on since the atrocities caused by the Nazi forces in World War 2. It should be widely conformed that the Nazi party during World War 2 were powerful beyond all belief, as they dominated against the military forces from across Europe. This was to be a subtle note that the European states did not have sufficient armed forces for a planned invasion, and as such the rest of the richer nations from across the globe played the waiting game. By allowing the Nazi forces to ware themselves down in great battles with Europe and Russia the United States of America could stay out of the war until something prompted the declaration of war between North American military forces and the Nazi regime that was currently dominating Europe and great extents of the Russian homeland.

The SS were charged with the policing of Germany, France, Poland, Italy and all of the other nations that the Nazi forces had conquered and were currently occupying. The SS were the private police for the Nazi regime, and as such their ranks were placed higher than any of the German Nazi ranks from the frontline. The SS were brutal in action; murdering innocent civilians for hiding Jews, killing the Jewish people residing in Nazi occupation Europe, and were charged with keeping overall political control in the Nazi empire, which it is so commonly snuffed by historians as being. Why is the Nazi occupied European land and other Nazi occupied states not referred to as the Nazi empire? This is less-so a question of why they were not an empire, and more-so a question of why they blatantly were but have been commonly dismantled as a force that was waiting to be crushed by the US military forces. North America have long seen themselves as the conquerors of war-zones in modern times, and the people in the wealthy nations have blindly followed them, for the German Nazi’s wanted to destroy western civilisation with corruption and death, whereas the Americans wanted to free the people and keep peace across all wealthy and influential nations. This is of course all done from far out of the reaches of the enemy states of course, but America will call to military action if any eastern nation (currently causing the most threat to the modern world) invades a neighbouring country. America is peaceful, and they are always going to be called to war if a nation is preparing to upset the long peace, as it is quite commonly known as (for-your-information: the long length of time since World War 2 where there has been no war between the rich and influential nations from around the globe).

Nazi symbolism in games serves as a reminder for the lengthy military and civilian lives lost during the second great war (World War 2), not to mention the vast aims that Hitler had to abolish the Jewish religion from the face of earth

Hitler was the German Nazi party fuhrer (meaning leader of an empire), and between the Nazi forces and SS troops they were able to destroy the peaceful civilisation across Europe, and cause hunger and starvation to kill all of those who opposed the fuhrer, making the modern world extremely sensitive the past history of World War 2, most prominently in the minds of people because of there being people still alive who lived through the World War 2 atrocities, but as the generations come and go there will be more and more distance put between the modern day and the events that took place during World War 2. So, all of the controversy, all of the lives lost during the second great war, all of the energy that historians, activists, and entertainers have put into widening the scope of awareness for what took place during the Hitler Nazi reign of terror will be lost to the history books. Then again, perhaps not. This would require the Nazi regime to have a mirrored look into the atrocities that took place first hand, so that gamers can experience the life and story of a Nazi regime recruit soldier during the early days - through to their demise on the European theatre and across Russia. This would be a dramatic experience, and may even raise awareness for the atrocities of World War 2 so much that people decide to re-celebrate the second great wars victory from the allied nations triumphing over the larger force.

Nazi symbolism in video-games is just wrong? There is nothing stopping someone from protesting a video-game for using Nazi symbolism to glorify their part that they took in the atrocities of World War 2, but this can sometimes keep the human mind conscious of the true events behind World War 2, as the average intelligence can understand that Nazi symbolism should be kept politically correct to the time of World War 2, and not misused in video-game content where it has no relevance to human sacrifice and human history. There was controversy the first time that a video-game set itself during World War 2, and historians were put-off by the idea, but after seeing the story that played throughout they were uplifted and eventually sided with the video-game movement to accurately foretell the events of World War 2. Yeah, but this should only be done from the allied forces perspective. That is the general consensus amongst those who bother to complain about the use of Nazi symbolism, but lets be honest, what the people want/what the people need is to see the great atrocities of World War 2 from the Nazi soldiers perspectives.

The Nazi regime represents propaganda, human sacrifice, the eradication of entire races of people, the attempt to conquer what is not rightfully theres - but the peoples, and all of the rest simply does not matter because it is a side to World War 2 that they do not want their children to see, let alone play a part of the Nazi regime. Sure, the parents are up in psychological arms about the inclusion of Nazi symbolism in Call of Duty games, and the other World War 2 set video-games, but this is mere hob-wobble since these people only know what they have seen in movies, TV shows, and video-games. But, if the Nazi side is shown accordingly with the realities of war from the Nazi line of vision on the battlefield, then perhaps this could all be done subject-fully, but not to the extent that young gamers are chanting German appraises to the television screen every time they complete a mission, or finish an online match.

Truth is, there is perhaps a third of the first-person-shooter video-game market that is under the thumb of the parents, and the issue lies in propaganda symbolism, and this quite prominently refers back to the German Nazi flag. But, the game that does the World War 2 theme from the German Nazi perspective will be the one that sells the most copies, because kids will cleverly convince their parents that there is no propaganda exposure, as it is a historically accurate video-game that expresses the truths from the Nazi’s perspective of World War 2, perhaps starting with the invasion on Poland, and finishing when the US of A storm the Normandy beach, and capture the lead German Nazi characters.
