I just wanna emphasize that propaganda isn't a necessarily bad thing. Everyone does it. But you need to understand that fact to identify some things as propaganda. But that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy said thing. I liked the movie alot, the acting was amazing, but with such delicate subjects you sometimes need to take a step back and reflect about what you just saw.

No, I get that. But there's a point where something is propaganda. Remember Act of Valor? That movie was absolutely propaganda. The recent Medal of Honor and Call of Duty games were probably some degree of propaganda. This movie, however, didn't seem to be biased towards attempting to persuade people of the greatness of America, it's military, or its people. Nor did it attempt to demonize the opposition. But maybe I just didn't notice.

He went house to house in one scene I think, he was mostly sniping, although there was the climactic last stand at the end, and the engagement when he was calling his wife.

It's not about wether or not the "good guy" feels remorse when killing a "bad guy". It's about dividing the people into "good guys" and "bad guys" that is one key characteristic of propaganda. Of course it wouldn't work without portraying the main character as humane to some degree. The movie needs that to confirm the belief that most Americans have, that they're doing this not for themselves, but they have to do it. And before you go all conspiracy-ape-shit on me, let me tell you, that it's not special or horrible what they're doing with the movie. Propaganda has been there for thousands of years. And to identify it you need a different perspective other than your own.

You might have a point. But the "bad guys" had just as much humanity as the "good guys", so there wasn't really a clear line. Also propaganda is meant to stir support for one side, and the war or the military are never painted in an overly positive way. It was really more of an exploration of what going to war and PTSD can do to a modern family than anything else. That and a biopic of Chris Kyle's life.

I brought you back to neutral thumbs (0) because I kind of get what you mean. I didn't beat Dark Souls 2, and I ALMOST beat DS 1 but stopped playing because I was pretty bored. Once you understood how the game worked, it was pretty dull. You just had to know how to fight and most of the game was a walk in the park. Occasionally you had to run back and get your souls so you could start the fight over again, but it was basically just keep doing things the same way until you manage to not fuck up enough to get killed on that boss.

tl;dr I agree with you, the game is pretty dull once you figure out the basics. Just takes a few tries on certain parts.
