Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance/Memes

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • One of the themes of the story is memetics, and the manipulation of society by the manipulation of cultural memes (through media, etc.). Unfortunately, much of the dialogue comes across as more than a little bit ridiculous:
    • "Really contagious memes..."
    • "We can rebel against our genes and memes."
    • "The Sears Program's one hell of a bad meme machine."
  • "I played college ball, you know!"
  • "Don't FUCK with this Senator!" *cue audience cheering out of nowhere after Raiden gets tossed into the air and kicked like a football*
