Hell, even videogame personalties are getting in on the action , saying the sorts of things that earn them literal Neo Nazi fans. It would be easy of me to try to read Sniper Elite 4 as a conveniently timed fable that points us to the virtues of Nazi punching.

Really, though, Sniper Elite 4 has nothing to do with any of that. It offers no broader political perspective, and any connections to current events are coincidental. After all, Rebellion has been making these games since But current events have changed the way I perceive a game like this.

I can't escape the fact that I wanted to play it at least in part due to the same impulse that makes me chuckle when I see meme-ified videos of "alt-right" ideologue Richard Spencer getting punched in the face. It satisfies my thirst for righteous retribution. I want to see the bad guys get theirs, and in Sniper Elite 4 I can orchestrate all of it.
To be clear, I'm not advocating real-life violence here. But I do suspect that games like this, tied up in gore and cruelty though they are, serve a social purpose. The game's power isn't intelligence or insight, it's the refusal to forget: By allowing players to fight and win against the ghosts of villains, it offers a quiet reminder that their villainy is real. A year ago, I might have dismissed that insight as too basic, too crude to be of use. But times change. Rebellion Developments.

A small part of the reason why I bought this game is that Hitler was suppose to be a target in one of the missions. What mission is he a target in?

I've missed it. I've finished the game, and playing again to do some challenges. Is Hitler a target of opportunity? Is that a future DLC?
