Is interesting that you can make a videogame about the country USA, and it feels fresh for some reason. As if no videogame or movie used USA has the background (or maybe sort of a protagonist).
Is of course false, many movies happen in USA, to USA people. We even have whole videogames like the GTA, that happen in american cities.
Perhaps theres a way to describe and show USA that is how a tourist would see USA. USA see from fresh eyes, not from the eyes somebody that live there.
One of my spies traveled to USA recently, and he made a lot of photos (of course, thats why you sent spies!) It really surprised me, and I feelt slightly betrayed by mass media, that the USA of the photos was not the USA of the movies or TV series.
- USA is fucking big. My spies found chipmunks that where not scared of humans, because they have never meet one!!. Even in some cities there where a few chipmunks going around. USA is still a wild place there the human foot is on a corner on the room.
- Theres no a single USA but many. But the USA citizens work extra hours to enforce the illusion that theres only one USA. USA citizens with a bible in one hand and a USA flag in the other are trying to convince themselves, the neighborhood and other people that theres only One USA. Perhaps deep down, USA citizens don’t believe it.
- USA is a fucking beatiful place with amazing wild nature.
Of course, they can still make a videogame that is generic as hell. But then, why choose this setting? I think you choose a setting because you believe you can make something interesting with it.
