Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Editorials
Decades ago, while we were playing games we literally damaged our eyes by glancing at the TV screen from close distance because of a short length of the controllers' cables. Today we have wireless gamepads and much larger screens, and yet we still have to sit at a minimum distance from the TV to play comfortably, as there is a fashion for the use of microscopic fonts among the game developers.
General Deathshead deserved to die, there is no doubt about it. But what if I told you he was based on an actual person?! And what if he was not the only one in the Wolfenstein games to be inspired by real historical figures? Let’s take a look at all the elements present in the series throughout the years that were actually inspired by history.
We gamers complain a lot. If a game doesn’t move in new directions – we’re disappointed at the lack of innovation and rant about how spoiled the industry is. If a game makes a 180-degree turn – we’re bewildered and immediately start ranting about how the old days were better and how the industry’s now spoiled, and oh-my-god-my-fav-game-was-trodden. It all may come down to respect though; respect to the players and to the franchise – especially in cases of games such as Wolfenstein; games that defined the genre when it was still a malleable and shapeless pulp of ideas. After trying out the game for the second time (now without an awful lot of bugs – which always helps), we’re bound to admit: yes, no change is a good change.
