Sheesh, they are starting to sound like Christian Evangelists !

Coming soon to China: Only "state approved" games that glorify the Chinese Communist Party and their ideas of what "masculinity" is (as decided by a bunch of old, fat guys).

Reminds me of all the "choppy socky" movies that used to come out of Hong Kong in the 60s/70s. Many of them all had the same hidden messages meant to glorify the communist party ideals without actually mentioning them. Like when all the "good guys" (i.e. the "state") band together to defeat the one bad guy (whoever opposes the "state"). Then they all get together after achieving victory and mention that they did it "for the people" (ect, ect). 

It's basically subliminal propaganda. Similar to many of the war movies made in Hollywood. Remember how it was always the "Russians" who were the bad guys in the 60s/70s. Then it was "black guys". Then it was Asians. Then it was Muslims.
But the "good guys" (i.e. Western democracies) always win in the end.
