Its members use mainstream video games in a subversive way. They appropriate video games by rejecting their rules – not respecting the goals or paths that are presented as mandatory and self-evident. In doing so, they reinvent the digital space they intervene in and explore how it can be used in ways other than for combat. Through its work, Total Refusal thus points out the political dimension of these games and the ideology embedded in their structure. In their first multi-award winning film, Operation Jane Walk, they take the viewer into the dystopian world of the multiplayer shooter Tom Clancy’s: The Division. However, they reject the role of the Division’s agents and instead of shooting, they go on a tour of post-apocalyptic Manhattan to talk about architecture and urbanism.
