Ahmed reveals his nerdy side in this special video game themed
episode. In Level 1, Ahmed talks to his cousins, siblings Nyle and
Basim (of the Kominas!) Usmani, about how video games bring them
together and why killing brown folks in Call of Duty makes
them feel nauseous. In Level 2, Ahmed calls up Rami Ismail,
co-founder of Dutch indie game studio Vlambeer, to get an insider’s
take on the cultural insensitivity of first-person shooter games
set in the Middle East and how being Muslim affects the way he
designs his games. Level 3 is not in the podcast at all — IT’S AN
ESSAY. Ahmed writes about playing Call of Duty: Modern
Warfare for the first time. Read it at bzfd.it/2pF5ox5.
