Deus Ex Screenshot Paints GWB in Unflattering Light

June 14, 2010 -

A recently-released screenshot from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which is set in the year 2027, features a wanted poster for an ex-President.

An eagle-eyed Examiner columnist noticed a wanted poster for the 43rd President of the U.S.—and new Facebook member—George W. Bush in a batch of screenshots for the Eidos Montreal and Square Enix production. GW’s picture is plainly visible under the banner “Wanted for Mass Murder.”

The game is due out in 2011, so we’ll have to just wait and see if GW’s image remains in the finished product.

Considering some of the imagery of Obama that has been openely and proudly displayed in real life, not merely a computer game, I don't see any real reason to change this.

Hey look.  It's that guy who by comparison makes the Iraqi Minister of Information look downright honest.

Well, I always thought Bush and Cheney should have been tried and convicted for war crimes.  That's obviously not going to happen, but seeing a fictional depction of it is the next best thing.

Or we could wait to hear Secret Service to go to Eido and ask them to remove Bush from that list and from the game.

 It is a game about paranoia and conspiracy. With all sorts running amuck, that sort of poster is perfectly believable. Lets hope no one blows it out of proportion.

It's a nice thought, but remember, Fox News hit their big, red WHARGARBL button over sideboob. Do ANYTHING to defame their lord and savior, and they'll nuke you from orbit.

Exactly. It fits into the game quite well.

You mean Dubbya did do that enough on his own?

Re: Deus Ex Screenshot Paints GWB in Unflattering Light

I see what you're trying to get at, but instead of arguing semantics and against talking points of political pundits, I'll simply say that others in his administration like Cheney will be dead by then most likely.

prh99The unflattering characterization "They don’t know how to dress or behave." & "‘Games culture’ is a petri dish of people who know so little about how human social interaction..." probably didn't help.10/02/2014 - 1:52am
prh99Probably not many as it was purely a vindictive move. The headline alone was plenty of ammo, but for those that did read and complain..10/02/2014 - 1:42am
Andrew EisenI wonder how many of those who complain about that article actually read past the headline.10/02/2014 - 1:37am
prh99http://intel.ly/1tjh1AH http://bit.ly/1rGPHOY http://intel.ly/Zu6go9 it isn't surprising "Gamers are over" didn't go over very well.10/02/2014 - 1:34am
Papa MidnightCan you parlay that to #WriteAGawkerArticle? The cesspool of horrid crap over there extends far beyond Kotaku.10/02/2014 - 12:34am
Andrew EisenWow! Intel dropped Gamasutra due to GameJournoPros? Over Matt Matthews? The only Gamasutra guy in the group? Who hasn't written a single thing about #GamerGate at the site? Where did you read that?10/02/2014 - 12:32am

Neo_DrKefkaSo Intel has dropped Gamesutra due to there support of your Gaming News Cabal Fudge. Anti GamerGate article soon? Or like your e-mails are you hoping this narrative dies down soon?10/02/2014 - 12:14am

Andrew EisenJust finished my stream. That... could have gone better. Technical issues prevented me from playing a console game so I instead played and bitched about The Walking Dead for two hours. Oh well, the folks watching still seemed to enjoy it.10/02/2014 - 12:09am

Andrew EisenI don't recall you promising that. GamerGate is not a taboo discussion here. Anyway, thanks for the link. Very interesting.10/01/2014 - 8:47pm
