7. Apple removing games with the confederate flag
Apple removed quite a few Civil War games from its App Store, such as the pretty decent Ultimate General: Gettysburg, which allows players to recreate that conflict’s key battle. And the tech giant was accused of taking something of a heavy-handed approach, basically removing any game that according to them used the confederate flag in “mean-spirited ways”. And perhaps Apple overreacted by removing so many games that merely use the flag in a historical context, as even video games can help people learn from a country’s past. As Maxim Zasov of Game Labs, the team behind Ultimate General: Gettysburg, said to website TouchArcade: “We can’t change history, but we can change the future”.
