It's going to be controversial no matter what. What isn't these days? You can't exclude war from subject matter because it's an integral part of the human experience. Our experience, where many if not most of us are untouched by it, is unique in human history.

I most definitely don't want to exclude war as subject matter… I think we should be making games about many more things than we actually do currently. If anything, even most 'controversial' games often tend to be safe in their theming.

Did you ever play Valiant Hearts? I'm guessing that you might not have liked it as a game, but I thought it was very good.

Nah. Saw the art style and was like, yeah no thanks.

I get that. It actually did a pretty good job of showing the impact of war.
