GamingThread TBT to when Naughty Dog cast a white girl doing an accent as a South African black woman and said she was better than actual South African black women

It's disingenuous when you ignore half of the quote and substitute a false interpretation of what he's saying in order to condemn it.I don't care how married you are to your incorrect assessment. An author at any time can reexamine their own assumptions about a character they are creating and their past. How do you think Apartheid goes unaddressed? I assume you memorized the entire script in order to support your assertion? Or is it more realistic to think one day while working on the character and seeing the black designs he thought, "well, what if she was black?" and started to work that out in his head and on the page and in his collaboration with Bailey? What must her journey have been like to go from that history to running a successful mercenary outfit only to lose it again? Does it not count unless she starts every sentence with "as a black South African who experienced Apartheid"? Does Ellie need to start every line with "as a confirmed homosexual"?If you think accent accuracy is the only thing that matters in a performance, not sure why anyone should trust any of your opinions.

Gaming HangoutsThread Easy Allies |OT2| Love & Reset
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory Point of Comparison; Numerous Prior Bans for Inflammatory Accusations and Trolling
Have you not recognized the irony in your advice to not diminish other people's opinion as you simultaneously insult my maturity, imply that I am also petty and infantile, attempt to assume the moral high ground and repeatedly suggest that I am getting too "worked up"? Personally, I think the greater danger is in pretending we can't call something what it is for fear of god knows what. It's how we get Nazis walking around again like that's an OK thing, let police off the hook for murdering black children and allow rape to be reframed as "sexual misconduct". But I digress... You should also note that I never actually called anyone any names. I simply described a behavior.

GamingThread Next-gen PS5 and next Xbox speculation launch thread |OT5| - It's in RDNA
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory accusations and multiple previous infractions for trolling
I'm pretty sure MS is Digital Fountry's source for PS5 rumors. Same FUD was getting filter through them about the PS4 last year.

GamingThread Operencia: The Stolen Sun exclusive to Xbox One, Windows Store (Game Pass) and Epic Games Store at launch
Reason User Banned (1 week): trolling, repeated personal attacks despite prior warning
How do you think they'll feel if the pressure being brought by Epic results in Valve caving to the pressure to offer better pay splits to every game maker? Seems like that will be a huge win for everyone involved, but not if we throttle the EGS in the crib because a bunch of fanboys shit their pants about not being able to buy a game on Steam.

GamingThread Operencia: The Stolen Sun exclusive to Xbox One, Windows Store (Game Pass) and Epic Games Store at launch
Reason User Warned: Personal attack
I must have missed their emotional transformation from posting absurdist propaganda on the topic. Then again, GhostTrick still thinks people are being "forced" which casts doubt on that conclusion.
