Story & Themes
Far Cry 3's themes include family and vengeance, and particularly the way revenge can warp a person's character.
While Far Cry 3 is widely praised as a very entertaining and mechanically brilliant game, it does have a fair amount of problematic content.
- There's a lot of problematic stuff going on with the Rakyat in this game. While the creator has said that it was all an attempt at satire, many feel that it was simply a continuation of the negative way different cultures have been treated in games (and other stories) for decades. At what point does satire simply not work? At what point does it only reinforce the status quo? What could the game have done differently to get its point across better, and less harmfully?
- Jason becomes progressively more violent as the game goes on. Did you see this as a necessity to win, or was it more of a product of his pain and desire for vengeance?
- The ending of the game has you choosing one of two options. Which one did you choose? Were you surprised at the outcome?
