Then I went to Molleindustra. I was surprised when i read the first game title which was "Faith Fighter" (Give vent to your religious intolerance!) and then i was shocked when i read the next game title "Operation Pedopriest." The more titles I read, the more shocked/disgusted I was. But then I realized that the site wasnt meant to offend anyone, rather to show how ridiculous some things are, like religious intolerance. I think that while games like these are on a fine line between offensive and satirical, that they more or less get the point across. I thought this site used shock and awe to their advantage and made games that drew people's attention in with catchy titles, descriptions and topics.

I first played various games on the Social Impact Sites and those seemed a tad boring and the topics relatively safe. I played a learning game (Tropical America), a Health game (Ben's Cancer), a game on the Lego Site, and also a Social Game (3rd World Farmer).
