Near the end of the Game Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the main character, Adam Jensen, makes some very Libertarian critiques to a political hack he is about to rescue. Video of the conversation below, starting at about 2 min 4 sec.
"If men are not angels,
then who shall run the state?"
Isn't that what the Deus Ex series is all about? I remember the original game incorporating a lot of the Illuminati mythos into it.
The original game had the "Majestic-12", which was a secretive organization that conspired to control the world: http://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/Majestic-12

T a large degree, yes. The illuminati played a major role in the original game. In this one, they only get passing mention. This game is a prequel to the original Deus Ex.
It just warmed my heart a little bit, finally having a protagonist in a shooter game that not wasn't part of leviathan, but that actively and explicitly questioned man's ability to rule through a state or edicts and regulations.
I don't know of any other game out there that ever mentioned the illuminati, Bilderburg, etc, except I guess Assassins Creed, which is all about the knights templar into the modern day.
This game was so terrible compared to the first one. A mine cart on tracks until the last five minutes where your choose three crappy choices. It was like Mass effect 3 without the hype about choice (because let's be honest you expected it from the first game)
Anyways, it could be worse. It could be the movie WANTED or V for Vendetta which have nothing to do with libertarianism. In fact they often go against the very nature of libertarianism in many regards. Yet people still like to wear those stupid masks.

I thought Alan Moore (writer of V for Vendetta) was an anarchist.
