The Division, an upcoming game from Ubisoft, was described this way:
The Division has really leaned into the bleakness of its concept in a big way. Every trailer released solely focuses on pain, death, violence and disease to get us to want to buy it.

Sounds like fun. LET’S WATCH THE TRAILER!
• “We followed our orders: Isolate the sick in the middle of Manhattan.”
Somebody either giving or following those orders has no idea what “isolate” actually means.
• “We built a wall to contain the sick.”
Unless this is a Zombie Apocalypse game, that was a waste of money.
And even then, 75% chance you just wasted a lot of time could better be spent shooting zombies.
• “That’s when the power went out. Rioting, looting, chaos.”
Man, those sick people sure are SPRY. When I’m sick, about the only chaos I can get up to is running to the toilet so I don’t puke on the floor.
• “We abandoned tanks, missiles, and the cure in the containment zone.”
And how is that working out for you? Also, “our most powerful weapons”: If that means nukes, the writer should be beat with baseball bats.
• “Few dare go over the wall.”
Well, what with the surprisingly spry sick people who have access to tanks and missiles (and maybe nukes), I’M NOT SURPRISED.
• “Fewer still come out.”
Again, no surprise there.
• “We call this place…”
Oh, sorry, “The Dark Zone”.
I see what you did there. ; )
I think I liked this game more when it was called “Prototype”.
