I’ve been looking through this site for the last hour: National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum
I find it…very powerful.
As I do more research for Carry, read more memoirs, get more information about how the survivors of Vietnam reflect on their experiences, I can’t help feeling that making their stories into a game is disrespectful. Maybe even insolent. Like, people shouldn’t be having fun with this stuff. What right do I, a college student that has absolutely no idea what combat is like, let alone Vietnam itself, have to engage with this material in the way I am? Why am I taking these experiences and putting them into a form which is meant to create an enjoyable evening’s pasttime?
What if I do it wrong?
