    At risk of alienating gamers, major developers take on gaming's traditional third rail

    Far Cry 5 is set in the fictional Hope County, Mont., and pits the gamer against a Christian extremist and separatist preacher.

    At E3 2017 last week, which was the first time it was open to the public, over 68,000 people got to try out first-hand a number of upcoming games, and many of them noticed, how 'poliitical' some of them have become like the next Far Cry in the long running series, will have to do battle against Christian extremist and separatist preachers, which some are saying it mirrors the current influx of what is called the 'Rise of Trump', or 'far-right' movements around the world, for the first time game developers have decided to touch the forbidden area of 'going political' which might backfire and alienate long-time fans of certain popular franchises, so its very big risk.
    You can read more comments and thoughts of the upcoming 'political games era' in the news article below, but what are your thoughts would you rather play video games that are total fantasy or would you like them to be more in-touch with today's real world outside?
