GamingThreadTBT 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
ReasonUser Banned (Permanent): Dismissive and inflammatory commentary in a sensitive thread. Long history of being dismissive towards concerns of bigotry.
you know... i have to ask. Knowing that the casting was done differently for Part II. What is the point of this thread now? Is this to drum up controversy to keep the Naughty Dog employee harassment train going?
I really hope the intent of this thread is not cynical and is actually intended to highlight an industry wide issue.
absolutely agree that black roles should be played by black people, and more POC roles in general need to exist.
ReasonUser Banned (1 Day): Antagonizing another member
lol what the fuck. That’s literally THE WHOLE POINT of the story’s themes! It’s not just some tacked on shit. The game posits that if we lived in a society that was built on objectivist morality, that it would likely collapse because of the absolute selfishness built into its philosophy that would cause mass greed and corruption. Obviously it’s hyperbolic for the sake of being a satirical horror game, but I wouldn’t call it “stupid”.
Are you some libertarian who is butthurt by people seeing Ayn Rands philosophy for the ugly dreck that it is?
GamingThreadPushSquare: Sources Indicate PlayStation Bidding For Remedy
ReasonUser Warned: Post count shaming / alt accusation
What is this? Account and alt account?
What a load of nonsense. This kind of trolling console war nonsense should be ban-able.
This is been shown to be demonstrably false on many occasions on many different fronts.
Remedy is demonstrably a VERY capable developer from a gameplay perspective.
The last three Sony AAA's have been very gameplay focused. They are not movies.

ReasonUser Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing Concerns Over Inclusivity and Representation; History of Dismissing Legitimate Concerns
I guess I don’t really understand the big drama about this. Perhaps a failure in their goal at the outset, but I know plenty of games that makes choices for the player.
A lot of times that’s the only way a game can actually have a good fucking story. Too many games with the blank avatar approach already. It really makes for soulless characters IMO. When you try to make a character that is everything to everyone, they are no one.
But I guess some people need wish fulfillment in the virtual world. So I get that part.
And I guess I’m more interested in what the storytellers can present to me rather than imbuing myself in it. But that’s just me.
GamingThreadWhy is Gamergate support still so prevalent in gaming communities?
ReasonUser Banned (3 Days): Hate movement rationalization
Depends what you mean. I haven’t really seen much of anybody who claims to be a supporter of gamer gate be vocal about it. The only context Ive seen in recent times was people on this board attributing the label to anyone who thought Jessica Price was in the wrong for her behavior, even those who didn’t think she should have been fired for it. It didn’t seem to be based on any factual context of whether someone supported gamer gate or not.
But maybe I’m missing something.
It seems to me that it’s become a catch all phrase to label anyone who has been perceived to be misogynist in the gaming community.
The intersection of those two things admittedly probably have a decently strong correlation.
