Homefront and Propaganda In Video Games - What Are They Trying To Tell You?

In a recent interview with Eurogamer, the head of THQ teased a Homefront sequel, and gave some insight into how Homefront 2 will work.

"Everything we learned from [the original] you'll see executed in other games going forward, and including that franchise going forward. We'll have some really interesting announcements in the future about the future of that brand," THQ's core games head Danny Bilson said.

While Homefront received mixed reviews (but very, very good sales for a new IP), the potential of the series is hard to argue with -- it's just a cool setting and idea for a shooter. Bilson's comments show that THQ regard Homefront as a learning experience.

"I would like to get to a place where we don't get mixed reviews, we get all great reviews, as certain games get. We had 40 reviews over 80. 40. And some that were just down in the bottom. I don't want to have games that are so controversial on quality. I want to have consistency across everybody's experience with them."

If the obvious problems with Homefront are corrected in a sequel, I could see it being a long-running, successful franchise.
