Those stories have been told ad nauseam. And they’re often used as a way to excuse atrocities committed or to justify further conflict. You know, propaganda. This game isn’t doing anything new or noteworthy, it’s just the latest in a long line of media trying to portray American troops terrorizing a foreign nation as heroes nobly sacrificing themselves. Without actually considering the conflict as a whole, telling the stories of these Marines is almost inherently propaganda towards that end.

“I was scared for my life!” the video game.
