GamingThread I'm so tired of games using politically charged content as little more than window dressing
Reason User banned (2 weeks): dismissing concerns around representation
If people want to see more profound political statements in videogames, I agree that there should be an audience for those games out there in the current social/political climate. What I can't agree with is the sentiment that basically every AAA, story heavy release must somehow take a political stance on ongoing social issues. To me that's like asking for a more diverse cast in an Avengers movie, a more liberal storyline in the Expendables franchise or a more eco-friendly setting for the Fast movies. I feel like the recent PR for Cyberpunk is simply driven by fear of community backlash & as bad and cringeworthy as their communication is right now - I somehow do even feel for them.
