The Far Cry series has a long history of charismatic and not so good leaders in their games. They are games with a deep dive into how bad leaders come into power... and how they stay there. Now, the games generally focus on bringing down these bad leaders - and they do a great job. I've learned a LOT and it follows many of the lessons we've learned throughout our own history on the subject. If we know how a bad leader stays in power, we can figure out how to take that power away. Get ready for a power lesson in Game Theory!
Check out their trailers:
And their interview with Giancarlo Esposito

  • So what you are saying is this: The reason Anton can stay in power is because he has such control over his county’s information that he can falsify the approval ratings his citizens have of him. Ergo, they do not believe they can stage a revolt or protest because they are made to believe they are alone with their ambitions of protest. If this is what you are saying then I feel like I should point out the people are already revolting in Yara, which would mean the dominos are already falling. I guess the focus of the game is speeding up the fall of Antons dynasty. I personally would love to see more videos on game theory because it sounds super interesting.

  • A game I had a blast playing was Just Cause 3. This is relevant because the entire plot for the game is taking down and liberating the fictional country Medici from its tyrannical dictator General Di Revello. To do this you needed to destroy key facilities run by the governments, which included Radio towers, Sattelite Dishes, etc. But also weapons manufacturing facilities and a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting. There was a DLC but I haven't played it xD Edit: They used the Liberation Screen Effect that plays when you liberate a town or destroy a facility a couple times! :D

God just blew us up?" well if you listen to the radio chatter when in a car you can hear people talking about a nuclear war between korea and America which leads to nukes getting sent out and blowing up montana which then leads to the events of farcry new dawn
