    I read this article about the Chinese government funding a bunch of "wholesome" games.
    Apart from the silliness of how evil games are, I found it very interesting how innovative the game ideas actually are. I predict a lot of these will fail because they are not along the lines of game types that have already been established, but this is a good thing! It's experimentation with new kinds of gaming expression. I want someone to pay me to develop these games! :)
    Clearly these have a socio-political agenda behind them, but the experimentation could create some new genres.

    Yes Journey to the west.
    West as in India.

    Not West by Rome, Jeruzalem or Mekka.

    Yikes! That sounds much more dangerous than a robber game.

    Indeed, and American patriotism is a frightening thing too.
