I teach middle school social studies in South Africa, and we're investigating the role of slavery and discrimination throughout human history. I have a group of boys who are interested in the role of slavery within modern video games, and they'd like some community input. One of the boys in particular is looking at Assassin's Creed, and he'd appreciate some gaming community feedback.
Please do respond, and keep the response school appropriate. I'll label the questions Q1, Q2, or Q3. Feel free to answer one or all of them, but please label the response with the question number. The more voice he gets on this project, the better.
Q1: what is an appropriate level of historical accuracy regarding slavery in video games?
Q2: How is slavery interpreted and communicated in video games such as Assassin's Creed? What perspective does the game take?
Q3: How does the role of slavery affect the game play experience?
