Players must remember which side they are on (26 Jan 2006)
One of the biggest series to explicitly promote a cause is Oddworld Inhabitants' Oddysee games. The game first appeared on the PlayStation in 1997. The hero was a revolutionary factory worker oppressed by his bosses. The objective was to liberate his fellow slaves.
All official material associated with the games endorses Amnesty International. According to research conducted at the Institute of Education, many of the people who have played the game have become more active in Amnesty's cause than they had been before.Add this article to Del.icio.us
