The Philosophy of Fallout [Video]

In this video by Wisecrack (creators of 8-Bit Philosophy),  the Fallout series is used to explore the work of Herbert Marcuse, including one-dimensional thought and enslaving contentment.  The video goes on to explore the philosophy of technology and international relations.

The Philosophy of Fallout is the 4th iteration of Wisecrack’s philosophizing on modern video games. It was preceded by the Philosophy of Bioshock (covering the insanity of Ayn Rand and American Exceptionalism), the Satire of Grand Theft Auto V (covering the game’s cultural criticism), and the Philosophy of Halo (covering identity, religion, and feminism).
