As I’m playing Watch Dogs, I can’t help myself in seeing the storyline is depicting the United States of America. Why is that? You probably think that I’m rambling off here, but no I am not! Spoiler ensues and so if you want to play Watch Dogs, you should reconsider not to read any further.
Anyhow, Aiden Pearce is our main character of the story here. Nonetheless, I feel Aiden represents America, because he was on a vengeance against the terrorists who attempted to assassinate him and killed his niece in the process. On 9/11 the twin towers got destroyed by the terrorists, the United States was on a vengeance too. By now you think I’m nut, because what on earth am I rambling on, right? Wait…
In one of the villains, a black dude named Iraq had the data that Aiden needed, and thus Aiden went all out to mess up Iraq. The synopsis sounds like the author was using the United States as the source of his inspiration for writing Watch Dogs’ storyline. After all, why named a villain Iraq? United States went on a vengeance, and Iraq was one of the villains that United States went all out to battle with. The obvious conclusion to Iraq was that the United States destroyed Iraq, and so it’s obvious that the author of Watch Dogs’ storyline had Aiden Pearce killed off Iraq.
Furthermore, Watch Dogs’ storyline revolves around the synopsis of having technology that spies on everyone. Thus, as if the author of Watch Dogs used the NSA situation to depict the technology within Watch Dogs’ storyline. So on and so on. Aiden Pearce has two faces? One face is representing the United States of America, but the other one is representing Edward Snowden? After all, Aiden Pearce is after the all-knowing spy program and its data.
Anyhow, I have yet to finish playing Watch Dogs, thus I don’t know the ending of the storyline. Nonetheless, as I’m getting deeper into Watch Dogs’ storyline, I can’t help myself of seeing the author of Watch Dogs relied on United States’ contemporary political and geopolitical affairs for his source of inspiration in creating Watch Dogs’ storyline.
