Is Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus important?

Could be.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a wild-ass game that came out on Hell Day, Oct. 27.

Of course, I had to find out the questions that people were googling about it, so that I could answer them in my extremely helpful video series, SEO Play.

What I learned was shocking. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is actually a remake of an 1883 sonnet by Emma Lazarus. Why MachineGames decided to adapt this sonnet rather than continue making original content is a question that may never be answered, not even by me.

I do take this opportunity to explain the meaning behind The New Colossus, as well as whether or not it is still relevant today.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus got one helluva review from us, and if you’re into games that are actually 19th century sonnets, you might get a kick out of it. And of course you can watch the rest of SEO Play on our YouTube channel, or below:
