    Satire

    Concept »

    Satire is a form of humor that ridicules aspects of real-world society and culture, usually making a serious but indirect point about the subject that the player is allowed to infer. Games such as Metal Gear, EarthBound, Grand Theft Auto, and Fallout, for example, satirize American culture.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    Note that satire is different from parody, which targets specific rather than generalized subjects for its mockery; for instance, the movie Spaceballs is a parody, while Dr. Strangelove is a satire.
