The NSA doesn’t want you to play these Edward Snowden video games

It might seem bizarre, but games like these cheap mobile and flash titles may end up being some of the longer-lasting and studied works that gaming has yet created. 

Historians often look back on popular culture to better understand how people of that time felt about certain public figures or policy decisions, and video games have become one of the world's foremost means of parody and political messaging in our day. It's the gaming equivalent of a political cartoon.

These games are interesting, even if they end up being pretty terrible. These quick games are a neat way to look at our culture's view of the NSA and one of our time's greatest fugitives.
