Can games create shared memory?

That’s what Iran’s hoping for, at least. The Iran National Foundation of Computer Games recently announced four new titles, each concerned with the 1980-‘88 Iran-Iraq war.

The games Alvatan Battle, Breaking the Siege of Abadan, Battle of Kheybar and Partisan are on the Iran-Iraq war known as the Sacred Defence in Iran.

The games are consponsored by the Art Bureau, which is affiliated with the Islamic Ideology Dissemination Organization (IIDO).

As of now, there’s no word game quality, but it’s less important that these games play well.
