Do you mean they should touch on current politics or they shouldn't? Offhand, I would guess that unlike movies, games can't/don't reflect the political reality that prevails when they're made? I can think of Fate of the World (eco catastrophe) and that one where you have to live on a certain (low) budget per month, but they're not really 'political'..?

And enough with the giant collars on the bad guys like it's a high school play of Dracula. FOR Fuck sake, enough!!
