The Future of Law Enforcement
Greetings, presumably law-abiding citizens. Video games enjoy indulging in some speculative sci-fi from time to time, but usually we're looking at what the military might become in ten, fifty or a thousand years into the future. Less often do we see what happens to law enforcement. Whether they become fascistic arms of whatever corporations of dubious morality are now in control of that particular wing of the public sector, or they're still regular joes trying to do a tough job that'll only get tougher when all the criminals have lasers and biotic implants, the cops usually don't get a day in the spotlight unless that spotlight is the laser sight on your high-powered cop-killer rifle and that really doesn't count, really.
Here are a few games that, while not necessarily putting you in the shoes of a futuristic cop, are a little more sympathetic to the thin blue line of tomorrow. But not like the thin blue line that comes from a gun with a blue laser sight. C'mon, we've talked about this.
If you have any more suggestions (and boy there's gotta be several thousand I missed), feel free to post it in the comments below. Or don't. "It's Your Move, Creep" (tm).
