GamingThread Can somebody explain to me the genius of Hideo Kojima?
Reason User banned (duration pending): hostility, aggressive whataboutisms, sexist concern trolling + previous infractions about racism and sexism
What the fuck are you guys even talking about? MGS 1,2,3 WERE great and critically acclaimed games. The stuff he did after that does not change that in the slightest. What is this logic? OoT is unplayable to me nowadays...yeah, let's call it a bad game and question the MC from 1998.... Let's be consequent and ban all discussion about Kojima and his work on this board and in order to avoid hypocrisy let's ban all discussion about Dragonball, Yakuza, Senran Kagura, DOA, Xenoblade 2 and many others...because all of these feature the same level of pervy female exploitation. Man, you guys are really starting to make my blood boil with this nonsense. And btw: your keyboard campaign against Kojima won't help the millions/billions of women who really are treated like shit in this world and it won't stop the better off women from pursuing careers where the exposure of their body is part of the job. Good lord...

GamingThread This is the state of diversity in 2019 gaming (Every AAA protagonist’s image, and why diversity matters)
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Exclusionary rhetoric and inflammatory false equivalencies surrounding race; previous severe infractions
Sorry in advance, but I will put it very bluntly: the biggest gaming markets for traditional video games are The US - 350m Europe - 750m Japan - 125m I'm excluding China for reasons....but it would make my argument even stronger. We're talking 1,2 bn people. I know that the black population of the US is roughly 15%. For Europe I assume it's below 5%. Do your math. Unless there's money to be made, you will not have more black protagonists in games. Black people are a single digit percent of the main gaming markets. This industry does not follow a moral compass, it's about profit and catering to target audiences.Yes it's sad but true. Do white average people really feel represented by white Hollywood actors? Why does nobody say "I want more average-looking leads in Hollywood movies"? Same thing imo.
