    Thanks, 3 a.m and this shit was blowing up on Reddit with people commenting every 10-15 min with a call of arms from both sides with examples of the reddit posts I quoted at the end. All I saw from the comments that was flooding in was supposedly another "victim" like the woman who did Fem Freq. Also, I was tired of reading this thread and forgot to link this before playing a game and also appreciate others who took a dive into this cesspool and linked more stuff. This is one of her pieces that is on her resume that she linked on twitter posting these tweets and so this looks like it was just a expanding bubble since June 27 which busted on her "fuck you" tweet.

    What's wrong with catering to "boyhood fantasies"? There wouldn't be any games if it wasn't for boyish fantasies about shooting aliens, slaying dragons and exploring dungeons, commanding armies etc. Video games were created by (and for) "immature" nerdy guys not by hipster "intellectuals" or angry feminist college professors. Have some fucking respect.

    You kill things instead of cuddling with digital plush toys. Violence and sex are childish, don't you know. Plush toys, on the other hand...

    This is like saying we need to stop making dumb action movies like Dredd because they aren't 'deep' enough to elevate films as an artistic medium. If I had to choose between a plotless run and gunner like Doom or Duke Nukem and pretentious 2deep4u award bait like Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us, I'd fucking nuke the entire goddamn medium back into the stone age just to make it happen.

    No matter how loudly Samantha Allen screams, no matter how many people tell her she's awesome and accepted, she will always be a dude dressed as a woman who looks like a dude. She'll never win. Every person who looks at her the rest of her life will think to themselves "this is a dude." You guys already won, won again, then pissed on her failed campaign and danced on her shattered dreams. It's impossible for her to win. That's why she's so angry.

    So enjoy.

    Yo, there's been a lot impassioned thought about this issue, both on this page and around the internet. It's super important that we're having this discussion, but I'd like know if, in the pages of debate, anyone has considered the following yet:

    Yes, Tom Bramwell. Mangling and rewriting past societies and sensibilities to cather to your limited XXI century sensibilities is the right thing to do. I mean, who cares about the possibilities that there are different societies or different world views? Of course, we live and the end of History and our Western White LIberal values are of course the greatest values that ever existed. Good luck at trying to understand and to love something that it's not your backyard. Western intelligentsia never learns.

    That's hilarious. It is complete disrespect against the possibility of different cultures and values. And the pitiful attempts to find something that resembles your worldview in past societies!

    Thanks, Tom Bramwell. You made me post in this retarded thread. Clickbait operation succedeed.

    Plus, Historical Accuracy can be only good even in stupid media like Vydia Games. To show how alien and interesting and varied and different are past and foreign societies... but that's bad, right, Tom?

    I think westerners are too intimidated by their own history to be frank. That the west haven't always been a liberal democratic society with cash flowing out of its butt and that in the past more survivalist values and practical solutions rather than purely ethical ones have been the norm is horrifying when you go soul-searching on how the west got to where they are now. It think even different cultures reminds them of how they got where they are and how must they have lost. Even simple things like spirituality completely eludes most of them. When the chubby emasculated but rather benevolent western middle-class men are confronted with that fact that sometimes unsavoury means are all that you have available or that not everyone share their values, ethics and ideals because their society didn't stem from ancient Greece or Rome they get a little frightened. Westerners artists in particular, like to think themselves bohemian world citizens when they're anything but and can't even comprehend the meaning or purpose of what their ancestors did a couple of generations ago. Urbanization is partly to blame I think, the decadence that imperial wealth brings is also a reason. Heck even looking at what the west has been up to recently is causing great revulsion in the humanist movements, which is funny since that's what have allowed them to prosper in the first place.

    Anyway, personally I feel somewhat conflicted about historical wrappings in video games. On one hand I find historical accuracy a great boner inducer in any medium, on the other with the current politics and the quality of writing in video games I'm not sure I would want them to present anything else than a silly muppet version of the past because I don't believe they could do the alternative justice. I feel the same about Hollywood and their films. One thing I am sure of, historical accuracy is never silly.

    I actually agree with her, making everyone bisexual is super dumb and stood out like a sore thumb in DA2.

    Yeah, I do agree too. ME3 had the same problem, only more dumb, because characters with previously established sexuality suddenly became bisexual for no apparent reason. I quoted her article mainly to demonstrate that some Bioware fanboys actually liked "everyone is gay for YOU, OH MIGHTY HERO!" approach and now are butthurt that they can't fuck everybody in upcoming DA:I. As if the lack of bisexual party member was that game's main problem, heh.

    Every NPC's bread is "buttered on both sides" for a Bioware player character. It's like they're trying to create an Ace Rimmer RPG, but without the humour, or wit, or likable characters, or interesting plot.
