Yeah, this.I definitely would only want to run this game with people who have watched the movies and actually understood the nuance, ethical dilemmas and dramatic themes beyond "it's a movie about murderous slave catchers". There's a fuck ton more to those movies than that, and if a player thinks otherwise, they're not going to be a good fit at my table.
Way to fail the nuance test, bro!The movies are about murderous slave catchers who for their own selfish reasons decide that "No, NOW it's wrong"
(I could mention the RPG Reichstar here)
(Only humans can be slaves. Is a replicant even human?)
And I have no idea what Reichstar, which I'd never heard about until today, has to do with it. Seems a lot like "The Man in the High Castle" in setting (after searching), except the characters are supposed to be fighting the powers and trying to stage a rebellion?
So, basically, crossing TMitHC with cyberpunk, unless there's more to it than meets the eye. But that's the opposite of "a Nazi game", which is how Necrozius seems to have taken the mention.
(Unless you also think that Midnight is a pro-Sauron setting, of course...in which case, yeah, there'd be no point in continuing the discussion).
