Once in a great while these people we call Germans come to
America to blow things up and spread their fascist derision to the masses. On
May 15th, 2011 Germans came to the Seattle area in the form of Rammstein.
After WWII Germany was cast underground only to thrive as a subterranean
culture, hellbent on steel works, mining, petroleum disposal, and nuclear waste
burning. Rammstein is a musical expression of this dwarven-like culture
that has been tricked into appearing onstage for Americans to show us the vast
dangers of fucking with people like Patton, Eisenhower, and Churchill.
First Person Shooters usually aren't known for having a
dynamic tone. It is usually a militaristic setting, where the player is some
sort of soldier and some mission goes wrong that challenges your twitch reflex.
The tone is usually set by fancy set pieces and characters who think
they were cast in an Aliens remake. Metro 2033, while a flawed game, has specific
tone that not many games (let alone films) have been able to pull off. The tone
is sadness spawned by a dead world. Sounds emo, but I assure you, it works.
