Videogaming the Spy 'Game': Is It Cool or Totally Stupidly Asinine?
Two spy games I have played:

Splinter Cel One
(the only good one)

Hearts of Iron
(scaled out strategic game you make spies and tanks etc)

Game A is a zoomed in FPS play doh type of game, but fun. Game B is where I allocate national funds to create "Spies" and I then send those spies to my own country in the quest to invoke more loyalty or draconian laws for conscription and draft, or I send them to the other countries with missions like "Support our party" or other information gathering. perhaps even a wee bit of sabo tagey.

Any of you ever play spy games?

So yeah console gamers, I dont really have too much respect for, but Game A can maybe get them to pursue PC games, like Game B.

Game B is so very simple. In scaled out spygame, I as "leader" need to create spies, as such. I allocate "Leadership" points to this task, taking points away from other research. Spies = Research is the idea to get here.

So, then as assets like a radar station or whatnot, a spy then awaits their mission. In the game, it is war that the game is built around. Thus, at the outset of the game, I max my national spies with "Counterintelligence" as their mission. The game then reports "X number of spies captured" and this number rises due to my allocation of funds to building more spies, if my spies die in the spy game.

Then, once I have maxed my nation spies (ten is the maximum for example in HOI), then I send the maximum spies to my target nation, say America.

If I start in 1936 as Japan, for example, influencing the USA toward fascism, I can cause a fascist government in the USA by 1940, typically. Now, this is all math inside the game itself, but, such conversations among game folk like me, can if analyzed, show how scripted actual history is. To say it another way, one spy is worth an entire battalion, in my estimation.

Sp, Ian Fleming basically made up "James Bond"

And it's kinda fake in the same way "Playboy" magazine was always fake.

So when they change James Bond to a black dude and change Playboy to trans and wacko shit, well, we always suspected the original product anyway, right?

Funny thing tho, is like I suggest "One spy to me, as leader, if they are loyal and skilled, is like 1000 soldiers" as I said above

Well, what does it take to control James Bond? As I mentioned, he is fiction, but spies as such, are not. And, wages, are paid in such things as, silence, gold, and death.

Now also one must consider "What is this game telling me, in terms of the "Spy Force" I cannot select?" That is to ask "What spying nations are not in this game?" ...Example of this would be "Endwar" by ubisoft where somehow world war three does not involve China or Asia. And the game itself is made, in Asia.

Metal Gear Solid was always a favorite of mine. Tenchu too.
