    could a third reich nazi pinball game be done in taste that would not be offensive? is the swastika symbol in itself anti semitic? all thoughts, opinions or beliefs are welcome.

    I'll just say no. I'll also say you're going to receive some very negative comments.

    Only time I have ever saw the Nazi party not be offensive to most is when you are blasting them in the face in Wolfenstein, Call of Duty ect. Lets face it they were definitely vilified for a lot of really awful acts.

    Yeah, that's kind of a god awful idea.

    Hahaha! How could you even consider that to be tasteful?

    I've seen some stupid $hit on here before.... But this is in a whole different league. What do you suppose the soldiers buried above the beaches of Normandy would tell you?

    Nazi's are a plot device. Indiana Jones, Wolfenstein, Inglourious Basterds, etc.

    I think you need a theme that is better than just the 3rd Reich, who would want to play a game that's like a documentary about Nazis. Come up with a theme where you have a story and the Nazis are the bad guys, like the examples above. Though Inglourious Basterds seems a bit of a heavy hitter for a pin theme.

    Quoted from LukeInOklahoma:

    is the swastika symbol in itself anti semitic?

    From Wikipedia
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

    "Because of its use by Nazi Germany, the swastika since the 1930s has been largely associated with Nazism and white supremacy in most Western countries. As a result, all of its use, or its use as a Nazi or hate symbol is prohibited in some jurisdictions. Because of the stigma attached to the symbol, many buildings that have contained the symbol as decoration have had the symbol removed."

    That's pretty big yes.

    Sexy Nazi women might be fun to look at... but not worth the backlash, I think.

    Apparently, I'm unable to close threads at the moment. I believe Robin is doing some upgrades. Please don't dignify this ridiculous post with replies. The OP is clearly just trying to stir up trouble.
