It’s July, and with the beginning of the new month comes the anticipation of one of the biggest holidays in the United States. Independence Day. Every year we set off explosives, grill hamburgers in the backyard, and watch Joey Chestnut shove hot dogs down his throat. Or you can celebrate the American spirit with video games.

Patriotic games to be played on the 4th of July

Several games with heavy patriotic themes have been released over the years and are perfect for this time of year. The Fourth of July is a celebration of what makes America special, from our architecture, to our love of sports, to our hatred of Nazis. There is nobody type patriotic video games, but several different kinds that celebrate the Land of the Free.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Nazi hero killer BJ Blazkowicz spent the day Wolfenstein: The New Order in Europe, but he brought the battle home in its continuation. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus sees America overrun by the Nazi threat, but BJ and his friends are more than willing to rid the country of fascists and return America to its people. The dark tone of the game is slightly lightened by its over-the-top presentation and insane technology, which, in their own way, seem very patriotic.

MLB The Show (series)

Unlike most of the games on our list, MLB The Show isn’t overly patriotic, but it’s the best virtual version of America’s favorite pastime on store shelves. Along with the franchise’s traditional modes and multiplayer, the series includes “Road to the Show”. You can think of it as a very abbreviated version of the American Dream, with your young player eventually making it to the Major Leagues after… well, about a year of practice. If only it were that easy in real life.

The Contra series opened with its heart-pounding patriotism, but Broforce it doubles. American iconography is everywhere in the game, and as you battle the monsters that threaten your way of life, you need to give them a healthy dose freedom. It’s like if a 10-year-old with a few GI Joe action figures was given the budget and team to make a video game, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Division 2

Ubisoft can insist on that Division 2 it’s not political, but when it has missions that take place at the Washington Monument and tasks players with protecting the president with guns, we tend to disagree. Set a few months after a virus has nearly destroyed the United States, the game positions The Division as the protectors of America’s capital. However, most of the threats came from other Americans, some of whom felt abandoned in their time of need. The plot isn’t great, with mediocre voice acting and so-so missions, but the moment-to-moment gameplay is excellent.

Assassin’s Creed III

The action of the Assassin’s Creed series takes place everywhere, from London to ancient Egypt, but Assassin’s Creed III took the action to the future United States during the Revolutionary War. Starring Connor – the son of an Indian mother and a British father – the game examined the struggle of an indigenous population facing oppression on both sides of the conflict. The United States is not portrayed as a blameless character in the game, but as a nation that must continue to grow and develop in order to properly serve its entire population.

Office: XCOM declassified

A third-person shooter instead of a turn-based strategy game, Office: XCOM declassified it is far from the best entry in the series. However, that is set in America at the height of the Cold War, with alien invaders serving as antagonists rather than Soviet troops. The game’s setting is classic middle America, with restaurants and fences symbolizing the center of the country. It’s a bit of a shame that these places have to be soaked in alien blood, but we didn’t start the war.

Splinter Cell Conviction

The greatest threats to American freedom are not always external. IN Splinter Cell Conviction, Sam Fisher abandons his world travels for a mission that takes place almost entirely within the United States. Faced with a corrupt Third Echelon on the brink of taking complete control of the country, Fisher is forced to be a rogue and must confide in someone who previously lied to him willingly. Although silly and unlikely, even by Clancy’s standards, Belief reminds us that we rarely take a politician’s word for granted.

Codename: STEAM

Codename: STEAM combines third-person shooter mechanics with XCOM-like strategy, and like the last games, you fight against alien creatures. How is that really a patriotic game? Among the characters you can control are Henry Fleming, John Henry and Tom Sawyer, and the entire mission is overseen by Abraham Lincoln. It plays out like something of a fever dream, especially since the characters weren’t all alive at the same time, but its homage to classic comic book design and folk legends makes it a great choice for the Fourth of July.

Saints Row IV

Saints Row IV is the only game on our list that lets you play as the President of the United States, and we’re pretty sure it’s the only game that gives the president Hulk-like superpowers. Once again, aliens are the threat here, but instead of just celebrating American culture, Saints Row IV is a hilarious satire of our classic action movies and the presidential office itself. You can drive in a classic car and use firearms to defend people, but why do that when you can jump into a jet that also mechanically plows or destroy your enemies with the ‘Merica Gun’?

Freedom fighters

An underrated (and underpowered) gem from Hitman studio IO Interactive, Freedom fighters did the first thing Homefront failed a few years later. Set in New York just as the Soviet Union invaded, Freedom fighters puts you in control of a plumber who must fight back using guerilla tactics and organize resistance forces to prevent further expansion of the army. It’s a classic David vs. Goliath story, albeit with AK-47 rifles replacing the slingshots of many more angry Russian soldiers. Despite being released 16 years ago, Freedom fighters‘ sense of pace and tactical combat system still shine.
