Fabius Maximus: One aspect of its mass appeal: it tells the story of modern America. The world’s Super Power — bigger, richer, stronger than any other nation — but we see ourselves as victims. We are forced to invade our Latin neighbors, repeatedly, to see that our businessmen get a fair deal. Attacked on 12/41, 8/64, and 9/11 — forcing us to bomb nations into oblivion (the total weight of bombs dropped on Vietnam was 3x what we used in WWII). But we remain unsullied in our own eyes because our motives are pure.

Kids think they're playing games and doing Simulation-s, but they're really piloting drones (UAV). Real World Game.
