  • 21. ‘ To say we may judge what is or is not real based on what is shown to us’<br />‘If something is repeated often enough it will tent to be believed and remembered’<br />
  • 22. This fits into the contemporary media landscape because..<br />The use of narrative roles in gaming such as Call Of Duty is still an issue in which is debatable as it suggests to its audience that specific cultures/races can play a role in realism on war and war genre games.<br />Misrepresentation in society is a highly controversial topic and games such as Call Of Duty have a part to play on how gaming can shape the minds of its audience through hegemonic views<br />
