Far Cry 5’s Box Art Brings The SJWs Out Of The Woodworks
Far Cry 5 Box Art
(Last Updated On: May 24, 2017)

A Far Cry game themed around white nationalist supremacists and evil killer Christians? Well, that sounds like a dream-come-true premise for most SJW liberal atheists. Following up on the teaser trailer revealing that Far Cry 5 is set during modern day Montana in the U.S.A., Ubisoft released the official box art and it’s highly provocative.

You can check out the full image of the box art below, which sees the Christian cultists at a dinner table with the American flag draped over it while a man, tied up and beaten, sits on the opposite side with the word “Sinner” etched onto his back. A militia armament sits on the right side of the image. Airplanes take to the skies in the background, while a pristine church with militia flags stands opposite on the left side of the image.

Far Cry 5

The image appears to play on American nationalism… white Christian nationalism, to be exact.

This, of course, had SJWs frothing at the mouth because they’ve been keen on wanting to “punch Nazis in the face”.

Familiar faces have already overtaken the trending section of Far Cry 5 on social media, with ideologues such as Bob Chipman and Anita Sarkeesian chiming in to offer their two pence.

Given how much regressive media have been going on and on about Nazis at every turn, it was unsurprising that some think it’s a good thing that Ubisoft is taking on a hot political topic as the potential theme for Far Cry 5. Former Kotaku writer and current Waypoint contributor, Patrick Klepek, had this to share.

Others joked about the obvious setting and thematic elements fitting into liberal talking points as of late, saying that the only thing the game needed was a black female lesbian as the main character.

The sad reality is that they may not be too far off.

Ubisoft has been really pushing the Social Justice Warrior boundaries, and that was pretty much the whole theme of Watch Dogs 2. So it wouldn’t be surprising if you donned the role of a transracial otherkin who is a gender fluid pansexual fighting against the religious right.

It didn’t take long for the memes to also start popping up given how the box art is conspicuously political.

Now this isn’t to say that Far Cry 5 will be a full-on SJW game. Ubisoft did do a swerve with Far Cry 4, revealing that the main bad guy, Pagan Min, was actually the main good guy, and he just wanted to get out of the war-torn area in one piece.

Some people even commented that if they can humanize the villains in the game it would be a win.

But then again… this is still Ubisoft we’re talking about, so it could go either way. According to a PSU report the game will see players taking on a Jim Jones type in rural Montana…

“The general thrust of this game is that it will take place in present day, and feature the protagonist taking on a Jim Jones or David Koresh-like religious cult in a small town in Montana that’s been populated by, essentially, Doomsday-preppers bent on furthering their cause. So, modern-day weaponry and modern-day vehicles, plus a hilly, mountainous backdrop.”

We’ll officially find out if Far Cry 5 is an SJW wet dream or if they’ll spin it all around into something completely different when the full gameplay reveal takes place on May 26th at the end of the week.

  • Laughing at the few SJWs in this article’s comments section pretending to be neutrals.

    I make it dead clear myself that I’m an anti-SJW and anti-feminist, and despise virtually everything SJW spastics do to entertainment medium. I make no secret of it.

    You would think that all these SJW-in-disguise types should just own up and admit that they’re part of the libtard parasite brigade, I mean after all their constant long-winded defending of SJWs and feminism (usually by just deflecting the conversation to anti-SJWs and screaming “BUT ANTI-SJWS ARE THE SAME!!” over and over) and refusal to say anything negative about SJWs gives them away almost immediately.

    Surely there’s nothing to be ashamed of in being an SJW right? I mean if you’re so intent in defending and advocating for your beliefs, just own up and be proud of your ideology even if it does operate on pretend-victimhood, censoring, banning, bullying, lynch-mobbing, intolerance, racism against Caucasians, sexism against men, tone-policing, etc.

    Don’t worry, you won’t get censored or banned here for being an SJW. Unlike on SJW sites where people DO get censored and banned for having a difference of opinion.

    May I call hypocrisy? You are one of the people who always gets offended when Sjw get offended by a game. And yet, you are making a big deal about a game where you shoot cultist (something you shouldn’t be offended about unless you are part of a cult). it is just a video game, So what if the game may or may not have liberal media aspects? You are like one of those people who made the petition to cancel the game

    You are saying people need to respect other people opinion, you are literally jumping about a game where you do not even know what is the opinion of those who are making it

    I mean do you really want to humanize cultists?

      Watch Dogs 2 gave us a pretty good idea, but you’re right that we don’t know the exact opinions of the people making it. Your comment seems to be directed at an article saying something this one isn’t, though.

      I mean, this entire article is about box art getting SJWs riled up and excited about wanting to kill white Christians (there are blacks who are part of the cult as well, but SJWs seem to ignore them).

      I mean do you really want to humanize cultists?

      Ace, I know this may come as a shock to you… but cults are operated by humans.

        1. Joining Christianity is not the same as joining a cult. This game is only talking about Christian cultists (which are different from regular Christians). It is not like the game was implying that this is what all Christians are about. I personally was talking about the villains of the game, I wasn’t talking about all Christians.

        2. Using your own logic, all the military simulators that let you shoot middle easterners are saying that all muslims are cultists.

        3. Yes, cultists are humans, but Cultists are not people we should sympathize with. Especially when they kill people like they showed in the trailer. This is the same as someone saying “I want a game that humanizes muslims extremists”. It sounds like a terrible idea, and I do not know why any decent person would want that unless they are sympathizing with them? Are you sympathizing with Christian cultists?

        4. I am not a fan of sjws, that is why I commented on this article. because I felt you were one of those people who are saying, “if the plot is about x, then fuck this game for having an opinion”. if that is not your intend, then I apologize for missing it.

        5. Be honest with me, if this was a game about shooting muslim extremists instead, would you be giving a shit about this game talking about current events. if anything you would most likely be praising it. Why is this any different? I personally hate both extremists and that is why I am happy with either topics. I hate religious extremists in general.

        • I personally was talking about the villains of the game, I wasn’t talking about all Christians.

          OK.

          all the military simulators that let you shoot middle easterners are saying that all muslims are cultists.

          No, not really.

          Yes, cultists are humans, but Cultists are not people we should sympathize with.

          Huh, why? Not saying they’re good… but why can’t we empathize with where they’re coming from?

          This is the same as someone saying “I want a game that humanizes muslims extremists”. It sounds like a terrible idea, and I do not know why any decent person would want that unless they are sympathizing with them?

          Well, they did humanize a Muslim extremist in the movie Cleanskin:
          http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1598873/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_27

          It’s a very good movie, by the way. It helps to give you an understanding of how normal people can become radicalized. Essentially, to empathize with one aspect of the extremists.

          I am not a fan of sjws, that is why I commented on this article. because I felt you were one of those people who are saying, “if the plot is about x, then fuck this game for having an opinion”. if that is not your intend, then I apologize for missing it.

          I haven’t really made much of an actual opinion about the game clear in any articles yet. We still don’t know much about it other than what the trailers and few Ubiblogs have posted up.

          Be honest with me, if this was a game about shooting muslim extremists instead, would you be giving a shit about this game talking about current events. if anything you would most likely be praising it. Why is this any different?

          It wouldn’t make much difference to me, but apparently it means a lot to the radicalized partisans engaged in the culture war.

          My biggest issue is just with SJWs shoving crap down people’s throats and studios censoring and changing their stuff to adapt to the politically correct SJW culture of today’s society.

            I am incredibly sorry for missing your point then

            I just thought you were one of those people who are like “featuring a female lead means you are automatically an sjw”. It reminds me of people who got pissed about horizon zero dawn.

          • I just thought you were one of those people who are like “featuring a female lead means you are automatically an sjw”. It reminds me of people who got pissed about horizon zero dawn.

            LOL… no one here is like that. People here, including myself, do get annoyed when the idea is to throw in a checklist of tokenism into a game/movie/show/etc., just to look progressive.

            Female leads are fine, just like male leads, but if female leads are used for nothing more than political propaganda then a lot of people are likely going to cringe, including myself.

          • but if female leads are used for nothing more than political propaganda then a lot of people are likely going to cringe, including myself

            The problem is that it’s not a black and white case when it comes to this issue.

            SJWs and feminists will tell you that there is no agenda and no propaganda, and that it’s all down to the creators/developers doing what they want. We know this is complete bullshit of course because SJWs and the mainstream games media has indirectly bullied and influenced Western developers to make games in the way THEY like. Otherwise their game gets hammered and low scored, all for political ideologies. It’s those precious PR points, which mean everything to video game companies.

            On the other hand, extreme anti-SJWs will tell you that any modern/new Western video game featuring a female lead is automatically SJW agenda.

            I have to say though, based on the combination of:

            1) the sudden explosion of female leads in Western video games over the last 4-5 years

            2) how most of them are strong, empowered obnoxious Mary Sue type characters

            3) how the mainstream games media like Kotaku, Polygon, etc. are full SJW

            4) how most Western developers have cucked themselves out for Social Justice and feminism

            5) “culture critics” like Anita Sarkeesian

            6) the Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook SJW bully brigade

            I think it’s fair to say that the extreme anti-SJWs may have a point.

            Personally myself, every time I see a female lead in a new Western video game, the feminist propaganda issue is always in the back of my mind. And it seems to be the case with a lot of non-SJW gamers too. It’s a good thing, because it shows that there are still people who are wary and can think for themselves instead of being brain-dead normies accepting everything without question.

          • Personally myself, every time I see a female lead in a new Western video game, the feminist propaganda issue is always in the back of my mind. And it seems to be the case with a lot of non-SJW gamers too.

            Absolutely. It’s incumbent on designers to prove their game isn’t political propaganda. The well has been poisoned so badly now that when people see a female character they will think that it may be a political stunt until proven otherwise.

            So if devs don’t want to lose sales or get labeled as an SJW company, they need to show that their game is more than just a talking point for some media outlets and culture critics.

      LMAO! Okay so this is the context. So Christianity is a cult now?

      So what if the game may or may not have liberal media aspects? You are like one of those people who made the petition to cancel the game

      Huh?

      You are saying people need to respect other people opinion, you are literally jumping about a game where you do not even know what is the opinion of those who are making it

      Watch Dogs 2 gave us a pretty good idea, but you’re right that we don’t know the exact opinions of the people making it. Your comment seems to be directed at an article saying something this one isn’t, though.

      I mean, this entire article is about box art getting SJWs riled up and excited about wanting to kill white Christians (there are blacks who are part of the cult as well, but SJWs seem to ignore them).

      I mean do you really want to humanize cultists?

      Ace, I know this may come as a shock to you… but cults are operated by humans.

    If you’re identifying with a religious cult militia and their depiction offends you, that’s on you.

    • Mr.Towel

      Oh yeah, like, SJW never accuse anyone of being a religious cult militia if they’re just white, or male, or christian. This certainly isn’t riding on that, it would be too stupid. /s

      • Retaeiyu

        Show me an example.

        • Mr.Towel

          Anecdotal evidence? Where were all on the last election cycle where all the snowflakes on twitter thought that everyone who voted for trump was an inbred redneck doomsday prepper with guns ready to send every minority to concentration camps?

          • Retaeiyu

            Show me an example.

          • Mr.Towel

            Ok, I’ll bite, I’m sure you will say one or two example “doesn’t prove anything” or that the examples are not exactly what I said, nipticking while completely ignoring the zeitgeist of our times but here you go, just two that I bothered looking in 30 seconds google search:

            http://www.alternativenation.net/guns-n-roses-member-trump-voters-crazy-stupid-rednecks/

            http://www.dailywire.com/news/10739/video-conan-pretends-kill-redneck-trump-voters-chase-stephens

            You can also just type “Hillybilly Elegy” on google news search and you will bazillions of articles from the liberal media fetishizing on how “important this book in understanding the Trump Voter”. You cal also just type “Trump Redneck Voter” on Twitter and find all sort of people calling men and women crazy rednecks simply for being white, hetero or a Trump voter. That’s the narrative the liberal media has been pushing for some time (again, see the fetishizing with “Hillybilly Elegy”) and the liberal like to profess at every corner of the internet.

          • Retaeiyu

            Ironic false equivalence. At any rate, this has nothing to do with my original post. If you see a villainous cult, compare their religion and ideals with your own, then see them as the same as your own. That’s your problem, one you should probably get help with.

          • Mr.Towel

            Not really my point either. My point is exactly because of False Equivalence.

            Nobody here is finding any sort of semblance between crazy religious cults and on our own ideals. The problem is that SJW do, and this feed into their misconceptions. It’s the same when lunatics from the Right believe that every liberal or someone slightly from the Left is a crazy Communist ready to put everyone on a GULAG on moments notice. It’s the same kind of bullshit, same kind of false equivalence. Because two groups hold similar symbols and beliefs, they’re are obviously the same. It’s just shitty logic.

    • I’m afraid to look it up.

        The comments section is actually interesting. Many there not willing to just go with the narrative the sjw’s are putting forward.

  • ScarredBushido

    i think Ubisoft is getting really desperate with the pandering…i mean this seems edgy as fuck with these themes. i wonder if its because of the take over from vivand or watever its called lol.

    • Mr.Towel

      Oh yeah, I had forgotten about this. Vivendi are taking them over. Vivendi is a french investment group. They were the main investors on Blizzard, through World of Warcraft’s inception till about Cataclysm/Pandaria, I think.

      It’s very likely that their future games rush to release, they must be desperate to attract new investors to avoid the Vivendi takeover.

  • Alistair

    For info that i gather is you be shooting white males, but hang on that means the SJWs would lap that shit up.

    It not about black lives matter, or white women depict in a bad light.

    Well news flash shooting white NPC is nothing new and the only ones are unhappy are the conservatives according to mundanematt and Not SJWs.

  • Pratim Gupta

    Pipe down people, lets play the game first and then well determine, this is Doom hysteria all over again with you people.

    • Mr.Towel

      True that Far Cry 3 protagonists were insufferable Bros. It’s possible that the protagonists are portrayed as insufferable Hipsters this time around. Far Cry 4 did had a twist with the villain as well.

      But we’re speaking of post-Watch Dogs Ubisoft here. They’re also frigging French-Canadians, that’s double cuckness for you.

      If we were on more neutral grounds I would definitely agree on the “Wait and See” approach. Now though, it doesn’t seem likely.

      • And to add on to this, it isn’t like AAA games have been scaling back on SocJus BS, they’ve been ramping it up.

        If this were CD Projekt Red I would definitely say wait and see and be a lot more lenient. If this were some other non-SocJus company I would also say wait and see and be a lot more lenient. But Ubisoft has been going all-in on the Kool-Aid.

        Even still we’ll have to wait and see come tomorrow.

      • Pratim Gupta

        Always play the game before striking down the hammer of justice, i first pirate the game (praise lord CPY) if its good, then i’ll buy it from Steam because i always support good developers like Bethesda or CD Project, can you imagine wasting money on a product like Mass Effect Andromeda (or as i like to call it, ASSdromeda), no money wasted.

    As a non American i will enjoy shooting some rednecks in the face who are so proud that they are MURICAN and never stop telling you about it. IThey seem like a tougher foe than the asians/indians in far cry 4, but will they be equally as dumb? Propably, i bet they be slower too due to all he burgers they are eating.

    Also know this, non American catholics or eastern orhodoxs are laughing at the right winger christians in usa, they find them to be the most retarded thing ever.

    I do find it funny though that they didnt pick some other relegious group that actually does kill people because they are “sinners” Then againt USA is a better enviroment to explore than middle east.

    But by all means lets not trigger those who bomb france and uk, lets trigger those who bombed middle east. One is buying games the other hates them.

    I cant imagine how much cuckery must be going on ubisoft headquarters, then again they are a french canadian studio so thats double the cuckery.

    Oh and Trump meeting with saudi arabian scum…he has been “cucked by the globalists” as Alex Jones would say.

    Personally i see this as another far cry 4 with the same setting as dying light the following, but without the zombies, GOOD ZOMBIES ARE OVERDONE.

    So i will play it like that. That is after i play watchdogs, which i will play after i play sniper ghost warrior 3, which i will buy when the price drops.

  • didn’t like Far Cry 4 kinda of made fun of Anita by having Amita the lady that wanted to have a drug empire and if didn’t choose her to be the leader she would call you sexist?
    maybe is just wishful thinking but it’s just a way to troll sjws i gonna be very impressed with Ubisoft
    they have been cucking a lot lately with other games but they also have the South Park game that is going to offensive af and its gonna be beautiful

    • The Amita thing was funny, since she was evil (then again, the other guy wasn’t good either). Essentially the story was that everybody was bad in Far Cry 4 except for Pagan Min.

      • durka durka

        i dont get why you think Pagan Min wasnt bad.

        • Because he really wasn’t. He just wanted to leave. He invited the main character there so he could hand over the region to him. He was tired of the fighting and didn’t want any part of it.

          • lucben999

            You’re giving Ubisoft too much credit, I’m pretty sure Pagan Min was just supposed to be a “magnificent bastard” archetype and the rebels the “flawed heroes”, it wouldn’t be the first time SJWs end up accidentally making a likeable character while trying to make a villain.

    • Alistair

      That what im was thinking that why i got lost by people commets and by what antia said in her tweet. Read her tweet she not codeming outright.

      Any controversy in game that dipict violence or sexual themes in games is SJWs number one pet hate.

      What from i can tell ubisoft hasn’t gone SJW with this game.

      Because if people are anti censorship like myself and majority people in the commets are it doesn’t matter if it about white alt right.

      Because im a white male, so they think i should be offered but im not.

      It doesn’t matter what they think, to be fair the game not out yet by the commets here and SJW is they (Ubisoft) Has the gall to mock white people and SJWs losing there shit or they agree with ubisoft.

      • considering LOTS of random shit it happen back with Far Cry 4 was announced “omergad the dude in the cover is a white male oppressing a minority” (which wasn’t cuz Pagan Min is clearly asian) or “omergad but he is voiced by a white dude!!!111” a lot of random and very stupid non-controversies are gonna show up for this game, mostly from people that aren’t gonna even play it
        heck every year there is people that STILL bring it up that old “woman are hard to animated” to bitch about Ubisoft

  • Michael P

    Not going to jump the gun too soon myself, a Jim Jones/David Koresh style villain and fundie murder simulator would be something new and not gonna lie, I’d buy that.

    • tajlund

      Not in MT. Wrong part of the country. In fact the farm they show in the teaser is actually a Hutterite compund.

      • Also, strangely enough most of the militia types aren’t the inbred hick type, most were actually highly educated, many doctors and lawyers amongst them.

        Yep. You’re not going to find the typical Deliverance-types amongst those kind of militia.

        They would be closer to how Ubisoft portrayed them in Rainbow Six: Patriots, or whatever it was called, when the nationalists rose up against government and bankers.

  • Gorgon

    Oh man, those evil violent white supremacists that are doing evil violent things every day that we totally hear about all the time, glad we get to shoot at them in a video game now.

    The more I see of these SJW assholes, the more it looks like they genuinely believe everybody are literal Nazis and thus violence against them is justified. They are slowly radicalizing this way and it will all end very badly for everybody. They are, thankfully, not quite at islamist terrorists level, but I feel that’s the way the wind is blowing.

  • Bitterbear

    Ten or Five years ago I would have bought this game regardless of the reviews. Now? Maybe, I’ll just sit back and watch the Let’s Plays on YouTube.

  • Keystone

    I’m sure the audience Ubisoft is trying to pander to here will still be upset and triggered over something they put in the game. Not that they’ll actually buy and play the game to find it in the first place — they’ll just wait for a few of their friends at game “journalism” rags to write about it.

  • This is one of the main reasons on why it’s time to just dismiss modern gaming and go back to retro gaming or to a pre-2013 back catalogue of games.

    The Western video games industry has become nothing more than a poisonous concoction of Social Justice, feminist and race politics and I simply cannot wait for it all to come crashing down so that these authoritarians become ostracized from society until they learn to listen to, tolerate differing viewpoints/beliefs and advocate for a system in the games industry that caters to all audiences.

    • Well said.

      If they want their “muh diversity” games, they should most definitely make new franchises. They did it with Horizon. If people don’t like it? Fine, whatever. They still have it. It’s theirs.

      This whole usurping of franchises, brands and genres that people play to indulge in escapism away from all that social justice BS is the thing that really ticks me off. SJWs can make their own games and have them, and that’s fine. But taking away the games of normies to push more SJW politics is the thing that right pisses me off.

      • tajlund

        And that’s just the problem. It isn’t that they want their own games, it’s that the totalitarian mindset makes it so they must impose their beliefs on others.

      • Ari Goldman

        Maybe I’m missing the forced diversity in the picture of a bunch of white dudes. Its funny, the people who complain about SJWs are even bigger whiney babies. But there is a special brand of stupid mixed in as you do the exact same shit you deride them for, ie whining about games that don’t cater to your personal sensibilities.

        But even worse is you have concocted an entire story in your head about how SJWs ruined a game, based on a single picture of some white dudes, because your persecution complex is off the charts. You lunatics need serious help.

        • But even worse is you have concocted an entire story in your head about how SJWs ruined a game, based on a single picture of some white dudes, because your persecution complex is off the charts. You lunatics need serious help.

          Huh? What? Bro, the comment you’re responding to was talking about SJWs in general. I don’t know or really care if Far Cry 5 will be about “muh diversity” or not. The cover art is cool as it is. I have no idea what you’re on about, mate.

          • Ari Goldman

            Well fair enough, I guess I just assumed it was in relation to this game being that this is the comment section for the article, and all the other loonies are flying off the handle and having their imaginations run wild.

            The reverse SJWs irritate the crap out of me so maybe I jumped the gun. Since they are every bit as whiney if they perceive a game as not catering to them, but with an added layer of hypocrisy.

          • Mr.Towel

            Catering is a funny choice of word. I don’t see anyone screeching about the lack of “muh representation”.

          • Ari Goldman

            I know its even more insane. As its not even like there is a lack of representation, just the notion that 100% of games aren’t designed to their specific sensibilities is enough to get these entitled looney tunes to launch into their persecution complex . Its like a little kid complaining about not getting a cookie vs complaining about not getting all the cookies. Its some next level entitlement.

            I think diversity in gaming is a non issue, because I’m a sane person. So in the war of whether or not games should be more diverse, I couldn’t give two shits. And while I think the people who get angry about a lack of diversity are silly, the people who are angry about the existence of diversity.. like, I cant even comprehend that level of stupidity.

          • And while I think the people who get angry about a lack of diversity are silly, the people who are angry about the existence of diversity.. like, I cant even comprehend that level of stupidity.

            Let’s run with that cookie example you used…

            Let’s say that everyone was getting cookies, but only the strawberry shortcake cookie and the lemon meringue cookie were huge sellers. The other cookies, like the prune and wheat toasted cookies or the apricot peppermint-chip cookies, sell a lot less than the other two.

            While there’s a cookie out there for everyone, there are people complaining that the strawberry shortcake and lemon meringue cookies aren’t varied enough and that the people who buy them are racist, sexist, transphobic misogynists because they don’t buy those other cookies, and that other toppings on cookies aren’t represented enough, and that it’s an institutional campaign of oppression keeping these other cookies from being popular.

            http://imworld.aufeminin.com/story/20170510/leckere-erdbeer-cookies-1083739_origin.jpg

            Now imagine that these protestors keep harping on, and on, and on, until the strawberry shortcake is changed to a strawberry avocado shortcake cookie, and the lemon meringue cookie is altered into a grape meringue cookie. They still sell, but no where like they did before, and fans of the original cookies are angry because now the cookies they used to buy are no longer the same.

            Meanwhile, all those complaining about representation and diversity of toppings and flavors don’t even bother buying the apricot peppermint-chip cookie nor do they even bother buying the new grape meringue cookie even after begging for it.

            http://img.sndimg.com/food/image/upload/h_465,w_620,c_fit/v1/img/recipes/29/71/54/QTNokIQaRkykVUaNfaL0_IMG_3638%20white%20choc%20peppermint%20cookies.jpg

            So now the diverse cookies that already existed aren’t being purchased by the people who begged for them, and the popular cookies that were altered to fit the tastes of those who complained have also lost some of their customers and didn’t gain any new customers since they changed the formula.

            Now imagine there are still people out there who love the strawberry shortcake and the lemon meringue and only want those cookies back, but they keep getting called sexist, racist, misogynists for wanting what they’ve been used to.

            http://images.hamodia.com/hamod-uploads/2017/04/05221353/Peppermill-1.jpg

            Do you get it now? These insane twats don’t buy the games they say need to be more diverse. Diverse games that have always existed don’t sell like AAA titles and the SJWs don’t even buy them. They just want to take away the games that are popular with the people who like them.

          • Ari Goldman

            So what you are saying is if you walk into a bakery, and see a new flavor of cookie. And the owner says “yea we have been getting a lot of requests for these” you lose your shit, start flipping trays and going on an angry tirade about how your values are under attack by cookie justice warriors? And you wonder by people act like you are crazy? See a sane person, would shrug something like that off and go “well, guess the world doesn’t revolve around me… ill just stick to the other 50 cookies varieties I do enjoy.”

            Pretend for a moment, you don’t get easily outraged by pointless shit… and try to see the situation from the view of a rational observer. A business changing up its product line in an attempt to appeal to new customers, is perfectly normal behavior. Everyone in the store who sees you throwing a hissy fit over the apricot cookies or whatever, is probably gonna think you hate apricot cookies. Because well that seems like the most likely explanation.

            Now perhaps you actually don’t actually hate apricot cookies, and the truth of the matter is actually far more batshit. IE you see yourself as some sort of soldier fighting an ideological war over the future of cookie flavors. Nobody is gonna suspect that reasoning, because its even more bizarre.

            So yes, if you are outraged by diversity in gaming. A lot of people are gonna assume you hate women, minorities etc. You should expect this, because that’s the most rational explanation for people who aren’t in the know. As a gamer, I understand… that’s probably not accurate. As there are a lot of young antisocial weirdos in the gaming community , for whom games are their only escapism from things like depression and anxiety. So they are weirdly protective of their toys and extremely fearful of change, regardless of how benign it is.

            I get that in your head this all somehow makes sense, because hey “they are the crazies, not us”. But getting outraged over something as silly as diversity in games, is crazy regardless of which side of the war you are fighting. If my super soldier fighting off waves of aliens has a pair of tits, or a darker skin texture.. off all the things I could possibly get upset about, that shit is dead last on my list of grievances.

            For instance, dragon age inquisition had a tranny character… seemed a little shoehorned and out of place. But of all the criticisms I could levy at that game, the tranny character and the 2 minutes I spent interacting with her is probably dead last in terms of negatively impacting my enjoyment. Its just simply not a big deal, no matter how much certain people want it to be. These issues just don’t warrant the level of outrage they are given, and when casual observers try to understand the seemingly irrational outcry over these things. You shouldn’t be surprised when they assume some sort of ‘-ism’ is responsible. Nor should you attempt to convince yourself that being outraged over these things is remotely rational behavior. Its not that I don’t “get it” its that I do “get it”, and its still bonkers.

          • A business changing up its product line in an attempt to appeal to new customers, is perfectly normal behavior.

            That would be true if from a business perspective it was actually profitable… except it’s not.

            Ubisoft’s attempt to “diversify” Assassin’s Creed saw it being the lowest, slowest, worst selling entry in the mainline series of the franchise.

            http://www.ibtimes.com/ubisofts-assassins-creed-syndicate-disappoints-watch-dogs-2-new-property-announced-2303972

            It wasn’t even a slow uptick situation. It just tanked. And the sales have never picked up for that particular series, despite SJWs saying that Ubisoft hadn’t been catering to 50% of the market beforehand. Surely then “diversifying” the game should have seen a 50% uptick in sales, especially with the focus on diversity… right? Nope.

            Same thing happened with Mass Effect Andromeda, and now the series is on hiatus.

            http://comicbook.com/gaming/2017/05/10/mass-effect-on-hiatus-bioware-montreal-demoted-report/

            If diversity = sales then that’s fine, but that’s not what’s happening because they’re shoehorning in poorly done caricatures of other races, sexuality and religion. Basically it’s piss-poor tokenistic pandering for the sake of looking “diverse”. It all comes at the expense of gameplay features, writing, technological improvements, or graphics (or in the case of Andromeda, all of the above).

            you see yourself as some sort of soldier fighting an ideological war over the future of cookie flavors. Nobody is gonna suspect that reasoning, because its even more bizarre.

            No one has to. At the end of the day nothing is bizarre about fans seeing the quality of their games go down the drain for the sake of political pandering.

            If the NFL ousted some of its best players to accommodate trans players and changed some of the rules, restricted tackling, and made the game less physical, do you honestly think football fans wouldn’t throw a hissyfit?

            In this case, there is no reason why games pandering to a specific demographic can’t pander to that demographic. Let them pander. That goes across the board. Instead of changing what works for a specific demographic, there’s room to make new things for this supposedly diverse audience buying products (in the case of gaming that hasn’t been the case at all, and none of the games from established franchises pandering to that crowd have shown to have increased its user engagement).

            Marvel learned firsthand what it means to screw with established characters and their sales are in the gutter. It’s not that people hate diversity, it’s that they hate when companies screw with their beloved pastimes just to appear to score virtue signalling points.

            In the end, no one wins.

            lol you are joking right? Correlation does not equal causation. I mean Halo, COD, Gears of war… have all had sales slump too. I could claim it was due to a lack of diversity, but that would be obvious BS. Its much more likely oversaturation and franchise fatigue. You are connecting the dots where they don’t exist, and assuming these things are related for no other reason than you want to believe its true.

            As for your sports analogy, there was indeed a time when angry white dudes were complaining about sports games becoming more diverse. And those guys were hella racist. In fact America has a rich history of angry white men complaining about things becoming more diverse… and most folks aren’t eager to join their ranks, for obvious reasons. If fighting against diversity in video games, is a war you want to fight… you are gonna have to expect those types of comparisons to be drawn.

            But your analogy is bad to begin with. If Tom Brady chopped his dong off and changed his name to Tomasina. I think patriots fans would give zero fucks as long as he kept winning superbowls.

            I dunno man, your rationalizations for why you are on this crusade, seems fairly absurd and poorly thought out. I think ive laid out the case well enough why this whole thing is much ado about nothing. If you wanna keep rasing your blood pressure for no good reason, I guess go for it. But life is a lot more fun living when you don’t sweat the small stuff.

          • I mean Halo, COD, Gears of war… have all had sales slump too.

            Halo slumped because the latest Halo was considered trash amongst fans. You can check the community feedback. Negative word of mouth killed Halo 5, and it was the poorest performing game in the mainline series within the last two generations.

            Gears of War Judgment and Gears of War 4 also both sold under par for not being good games. Read the feedback and you’ll see.

            Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare underperformed due to cannibalization in the FPS market due to Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 and the negative mind-share leading up to release due to futurism fatigue.

            Correlation does not equal causation.

            Who said diversity caused the sales to slump? I said diversity didn’t cause the sales to rise. Ubisoft removed features, dumbed down the gameplay and focused more on a third-wave feminist characterization to appease social justice warriors because SJWs said focusing on diversity would cause the game to sell more since it would be tapping into 50% more of the market.

            That was a lie. It was the poorest performing AAA outing from Ubisoft in a long time.

            I dunno man, your rationalizations for why you are on this crusade, seems fairly absurd and poorly thought out.

            Not at all. The numbers tell a story that SJW trends is killing a segment of the hobby I love.

            But life is a lot more fun living when you don’t sweat the small stuff.

            Companies have been smeared, people have lost jobs and their livelihood, and studios have had to downsize due to SJW media smears and politicization. Ace, I don’t know where you live where jobs and livelihood is the “small stuff” but it sounds like some kind of utopia.

          • Ari Goldman

            I mean I played assassins creed 3. It was a pretty buggy and unpolished game, and the main character was a bit annoying. But I mean none of that had to do with the fact that he was Native American. I actually thought a Native American in colonial times was a rather interesting story/setting… and along with the ship combat, one of the better aspects of the game. If anything the diversity in the game was definitely a motivator for buying it, as I thought the series had grown pretty stale and was excited for something different.

            I also don’t know what sort of feminism you are referring to. I don’t recall anything overtly feminist in the game.

            Also, who has lost their livelihood because of “SJW media smears”, please give some examples. As far as I know GTA has been the single largest target of politicization and smears.. and I think GTA5 sold something like 80 million copies. I think its the best selling franchise outside of like super Mario and pokemon at this point. Good games sell, bad games don’t. I think you give SJWs far too much credit. They are the equivalent of crotchety old men shouting at clouds. And I think a lot of the people in this comments section fit that criteria as well.

          • I actually thought a Native American in colonial times was a rather interesting story/setting.

            No one said diversity was bad. Where do you keep getting this from?

            People have an issue with diversity as propaganda. Races caricaturized for virtue signalling. AC3 was not a tokenistic, “muh diversity” game. It was very layered and nuanced.

            Mass Effect: Andromeda is a “muh diversity” game, same with Dragon Age: Inquisition, Sunset, Watch Dogs 2. These games were ultimately made to make political statements, not be layered, complex, interesting stories.

            Also, who has lost their livelihood because of “SJW media smears”, please give some examples.

            The media’s smear of Hatred (a game that actually has no gore and is less violent than most other violent M-rated games that came out that same year) couldn’t make it onto home consoles because of the moral panic that led to it being rated AO:

            I don’t give them credit for anything. I’m citing sources of literal, actual events that have taken place because of their actions.

            Koei Tecmo didn’t release DoAX3 in the West because of SJWs, nor did they make the VR mode available in the game to anyone outside of Japan after media smears:
            http://www.oneangrygamer.net/2017/01/dead-or-alive-xtreme-3-vr-update-is-live-for-ps4-in-japan/22285/

            That literally affects the global market. There are games that don’t come out and people who don’t always have the choice of buying them because of the fear culture propagated by SJWs.

            Just because YOU aren’t affected by these things doesn’t mean they aren’t happening, nor does it mean others who care about these things aren’t being affected either.

          • Ari Goldman

            Claim: “Companies have been smeared, people have lost jobs and their livelihood, and studios have had to downsize due to SJW media smears and politicization.”

            Evidence: One guy named Jason miller who after googling is apparently a liar with a victim complex. And even doxed himself under a fake account to try to smear SJWs or whatever… claims to have lost his job because of SJWs on twitter. Nothing suspicious about that.

            Some pervy Japanese game that was never planned for release in the west. Didn’t get released in the west.

            And I don’t know what SJWs have to do with hatred. If they even were attacking that game, they only did it a favor. As without the controversy nobody would have known that garbage game even existed.

            Can you not hear the noises when you are scraping the bottom of the barrel? All you have done is confirmed SJWs have accomplished nothing of consequence. Is this why you are so heated about this, because you cant jack off to scantily clad anime girls in VR? I guess a serious case of blue balls can make a man do some crazy things. lol.

          • And I don’t know what SJWs have to do with hatred

            Don’t follow the news much, huh, ace?

            SJWs complained about it being a murder sim.

            https://www.vg247.com/2014/12/17/gabe-newell-apologises-for-pulling-hatred-from-steam-greenlight/

            It doesn’t matter if you or I don’t like or care about the game, but defending something being censored because it doesn’t affect you is precisely why people who aren’t you and are fans of the things getting banned get pissed.

            Some pervy Japanese game that was never planned for release in the west. Didn’t get released in the west.

            All DOA games get released in the West. Koei releases almost all their titles West, even games that don’t even sell 30k copies like the Nobunaga series; but they even took the time out to localize it in English for the West.
            http://steamspy.com/app/392470

            Dead or Alive Xtreme games sell nearly 10 times more than the Nobunaga’s Ambition games. So, you’re completely wrong there, ace.

            Is this why you are so heated about this, because you cant jack off to scantily clad anime girls in VR?

            I don’t play DOA games, but even if I did… as a customer living in a place where we’re supposed to value the free market, why would you advocate the media running a mafio-style racket over the games industry where they smear companies to devalue them if they release games that don’t ideologically align with their values?

            All you have done is confirmed SJWs have accomplished nothing of consequence.

            Well if you don’t think censorship is of consequence, then sure. But people who value the games that were censored, then all I’ve done is confirm that they’ve accomplished things of consequence that you don’t care about, such as Fire Emblem Fates…

            Ive been gaming a long time, games have been under attack since mortal kombat. People bitch and moan a lot, nothing ever happens. In fact games have only gotten increasingly R-rated over time.

            I hardly think some whiney SJWs on social media are gonna be the ones that finally manage to change the course of the industry. Sorry nothing here seems deserving of the level of outrage its given.

            And frankly I could do with less tits and ass in my games, if I never have to sit through another cringey and robotic video game sex scene that would be great. Im trying to play a video game, not jack off to cartoons. So godspeed to the SJWs on that front.

          • Mr.Towel

            By the way, just a comment you made on my last reply to me and made here again. I’m commenting here to not derail my other discussion.

            If you think “it’s sick” to be turned on by “polygons” you don’t know how the cognitive mind. Even a “real porn” pictures is just an array of colors, pigments, pixels, arranged in a way to create an arousing picture. For your brain, it doesn’t matter if its real or not as long as it can perceive as real, as long as it can trick itself to be real, imagine. It will have physiological effects regardless how real the object is. It’s the reason women can masturbate with letters, by reading erotica books. Or doujinshis (while hentai tends to be more popular with men, “hentai manga”, doujinshis, are relatively more popular with women), and these are just black lineworks on paper.

            It’s true though that 3D porn tends to get creepy, because it usually falls on the uncanny valley more easily than other sort of media (drawings and words), so it gets creepy, that’s what the uncanny valley is, porn or no. It’s usually badly animated or shaded when it’s porn. But not because they’re polygons, it’s just because they’re harder to make and usually get crappy.

            The gaming industry as a whole has less sexual overtones (and detailed graphical violence) than movies.

          • Mr.Towel

            You can’t comprehend indeed.

            It’s not about the fucking diversity. It’s about shoehorning for political pandering, when the quality of the game itself should be the focus, not the fucking political pandering. Characters are getting solely created by their political affiliation, rather than, you know, being actually interesting characters. A character doesn’t need to be interesting to receive praise anymore, just checking enough political bulletpoints and it’s already “best game ever!”, “GotY material!”.

            Or the opposite. A decent game getting undeserved flak because “there isn’t enough POCs”, “that character is dressing slutty”, “her boobs are too big”, “the females walk too sexy”, “think of the children/women/pacifists/PTSDs/Anxiety/Depression/ETC!”.

            Hell, we’ve be getting games who supposedly should let you be a villain, or an asshole, you know, the whole point of a moral system in cRPGs, but they don’t let you actually be an villain lest someone gets offended. The political grandstanding is a fucking travesty.

          • Ari Goldman

            I dunno man. I’m able to enjoy games just fine, to the point where I literally have no idea what you are talking about. It seems to me like you might be actively searching for things to get outraged about… not unlike SJWs.

          • Mr.Towel

            So because you are able to “enjoy games just fine” the problem isn’t there? Appealing to your personal sensibilities, great argument. It’s like a mioptic arguing that he sees the world fine enough and all 20/20 people are crazy.

            This very site is filled with examples from production changes to artistically compromises being done to appease the regressive left. Most us have been gamers long enough to remember how our game industry looked like without all this political pandering getting in the way of actual game development. We remember the old cRPGs were we could tell trans characters to fuck off just like any other character, or to have actual female protagonists who were deeper than a political bullet point, who were actual characters in themselves instead of 21th Century propaganda. Not the token diversity we have today, but actual interesting stuff. Now developers can barely make characters look beautiful least beauty offends someone.

          • Ari Goldman

            If your enjoyment of a game hinges on your ability to tell a trans character to fuck off, or offend minorities then yea that’s pretty crazy.

            When I play games I notice lots of problems, muddy textures, framerate instability, bugs/crashes, frequent large patches, lag etc. But yet for some reason I am not noticing the things you are describing. I mean if you are playing mortal kombat X its not like the game refuses to let you fatality minorities and female characters.

            And there is tons of T&A in games, to the point of it being rather creepy and awkward. Like I’m supposed to get turned on by polygons, no thanks.

            But I feel like I’m beating a dead horse here. Whatever dimension you exist in is clearly different from mine. The games I’m playing, all the things you claim are not allowed, are very much present. Maybe you live in a country with very strict censorship laws, so you don’t have access to the same games I do…. I dunno man.

            I even racked my brain trying to think of all the games ive played, and the only example I can think of is the tranny character from dragon age inquisition, that felt rather out of place and forced. But I think I spent like 60+ hours playing that game, and my interaction with that character lasted all of of 2 minutes. And yet it didn’t make my blood boil or feel like ranting and raving like a madman. I simply chuckled and thought “lol, they put a tranny in the game”. Which I feel is the appropriate level of response given the situation.

          • Mr.Towel

            Missing the point again.

            Isolated these cases are harmless. In fact, they existed in the past, before all this political movement, and they were irrelevant exactly because they were isolated. They were quirky pieces of weirdness, part of something that didn’t fit with the rest.

            The difference today is exactly how they are not isolated anymore. The tranny character in Dragon Age for example, that is just just the tip of the iceberg, the easiest part to see. Undearth the rest of the game, there is a whole subtlety, a pervasive politically charged atmosphere. Very similar to Mass Effect Andromeda, actually. Like, you can easily see they went to the trouble of checking that in every soldier or guard there would a 50/50 distribution of males and females and equal amount of skin tones. You can see the artificiality in that, it affects the Suspension of Disbelief when you start to perceive such forceful tricks. You can see many characters who were created solely to be Mary Sues, or “Independent Strong Women”, or biggoted traditionalists. Tropes, as you would find in any crappy writing. Nothing special till there.Crappy writing exists since the dawn of time. The problem starts when you start to notice that all the tropes are politically aligned tropes. They are politically charged tropes. They are not the work of incompetence or naivety, otherwise the tropes would appear in random nature, they would appear on both sides of the coin, but they do not, they always appears over one side of the coin and that side only. Then you start to perceive that the reason there is such bad writing is not because the creators are too inexperience, too young, too naive to know otherwise, it’s because they believe such writing is good writing exactly because it aligns with their political beliefs. They let their ideological beliefs be the helmsguard of their art and they kill the art in the process, it becomes nothing different than war propaganda leaflets. Very well painted indeed… but empty. Full of misconceptions, faulty logic and outright lies.

            And they spend so much time and effort in trying to align their creation to ideological beliefs, that little time is left for other stuff, polishing the game for example. You start to see that there is a reason for why the female characters fell sort of weird, that the way they behave and talk and dress is not natural, feels forced in someway. Always forced to one way, the political way, only in that direction, not otherwise.

            Don’t be mistaken, I enjoyed that game, I enjoyed Dragon Age, the combat to me was the best part, I endured all the other crappy parts because the combat was fulfilling, was fun. However, it could have been so much better if the developers hadn’t wasted their energy in proselytizing their political ideologies. Because the other parts were bad, low in quality, exactly because they let their ideologies be the judgement of quality. Their ideology is their Quality Assurance. Which is just crappy quality.

            Another example that’s much easier to prove because there’s actual an confession. Borderlands 2. Fun game to play. Had many memorable moments on it with my friends. Many moments you laugh till your side hurts, pure, sheer fun. However, the worst part of it, is the writing. The plot. It just shitty. When I played that game, before all this SJW became the monster it is today, when it was only seeping under the surface, I could not pinpoint exactly why the writing was so shitty. It was just bad. The dialogues were good but the writing in general was horrendous. I could never put my finger on it, I just shuddered and thought they were just incompetent. But I knew I was not the only one who saw the crappy writing, not only all my friends saw but many other gamers all over the internet saw as well.

            Then, some time later, I learned that the writer, Antony Burch, an ex-video game journalist, was the writer of the game. And he was from the left. From the hard left, the screaming over the top one. And people complained about him over the bad writing. I’m quoting in full what he answered (and later deleted):

            “I’ve been told once or twice that the bisexual or gay characters I wrote for Borderlands 2 were arbitrary and forced. This is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT TRUE. I had no “reason” to do so other than the belief that a cast of sexually diverse characters is better than a sexually homogenous one”

            Not only he said that but he then went on many articles and tirade about how “diversifying for the sake of diversify” is good thing. He then went into Developers Conferences and made many presentation on how other game developers should diversify their characters just for the sake of diversity. The token diversity that I’m talking about. The shallow characters that I’m talking about. The sheer bad quality, the artificiality that breaks the Suspension of Disbelief.

            And this is just the characters. This crap also seeps in at the actual rules of the game. In DA: I the tranny character being above all sort of dickshness from you is just the tip of iceberg. In the whole game you don’t have true freedom, you can’t do things that are opposed to the left’s ideology.

            None of this is “an outrage” over political points, at the Anti-SJW you will find all sort of political affiliations, from socialists to libertarians. People on the left and right. And most people would be ok with female characters, gay characters, black characters, if they were genuine characters, if they were characters that made sense, if they were true characters in themselves, with faults, ambiguity, freedom, depth. But that’s not what it’s happening. We’re getting crap, and we’re getting crap because they’re letting their political ideologies getting in the way of the game making, blinding them. They are saying so themselves and proud of it. It’s insane.

            Again, this is not isolated, almost all AAA are becoming like that, are becoming like Borderlands 2 and DA:I. It would be comically stupid if it wasn’t so sad, if it wasn’t so much wasted potential.

          • Ari Goldman

            Games have always had pretty bad writing, characters, voice acting etc. Its the interactivity of the medium which makes it compelling. Otherwise I would just read books or watch movies.

            I played borderlands to shoot guys, level up, get loot, so I could shoot more guys. The draw is the gameplay, and progression system. If they can get me to chuckle along the way with some well written jokes that a pleasant surprise. But if I let myself get angry by poor writing and bad characters, I would literally be angry all the time. Games are littered with that stuff.

            You act like these are blemishes on otherwise flawless gems. I would argue they are par for the course. Ergo when I meet up the with tranny in dragon age I think “lol, they put a tranny in the game” then toss him/her/it into the pile of the many characters I couldn’t give 2 shits about and go about my gaming completely unfazed.

            And if they wanna get political, I mean its their game they can do what they want. Being exposed to other people’s ideas and opinions doesn’t bother me. Its a pretty normal thing I encounter regularly in life.

          • Mr.Towel

            What does the interactivity has to do with anything? Bad writing is bad writing. In video games, it’s bad interactive writing.

            Also, you would be surprised to know not all games have bad writing, there are some very nice pieces out there, from old and new. There’s no excuse to at least try making a good work. Plus, you ignored my point when I specifically said THAT GAMES ALWAYS HAD BAD WRITING! Great reading comprehension there. The problem is not the bad writing in itself, but where the fuck is coming from. If I see where a fault is coming from, I point it at it. Because every game would be better with less faults. It’s pretty simple.

            I’m not acting they are flawless gems, I’m acting that they would be better if they weren’t so focused on proselytizing their political ideologies on their art. The quality of the game is going down, simply because they rather focus on political points than just making a decent game.

            It’s their game for sure, they can do whatever the hell they want with it. Doesn’t mean that whatever the hell they do with it is above criticism. Shitty development decisions are just shitty. Don’t care if their “different opinions” or “different ideas”, if they are shitty they are just shitty and they will make for a shitty game. We’re pointing at it to show where the fault is coming from.

            I know how much good writing can make a difference in making a memorable experience, rather than just a fun empty one that will be lost through the next week for the new fun empty one.

            But it seems your whole behavior through all of this is “lol, don’t care, can shoot and skill stuff, had fun, that’s all that matters”. If you don’t care really, there will be no logical argument in the world that will convince you to care, you couldn’t give two shits about the medium as long as you can have your kind of fun and all your rationalizations will point you into that direction, which is not my point. My point is that video games could be even more fun, because they had a better chance at achieving higher quality overall, if it wasn’t for all this bullcrap.

          • Ari Goldman

            You type a lot, so yea I have to skim a bit in the interest of time. So apologies if I missed something. Of course I want all games to be better, that’s a no brainer. But the point is that the list of ways games can be better is an extremely long one. And the level of attention this particular issue is given, doesn’t seem to correlate in anyway to the level of impact it has on the game experience.

            But my best guess is the real issue is you feel you shouldn’t have to be exposed to things that don’t reinforce your personal beliefs. For instance if eating a ham in a game restores health and a muslim doesn’t like positive portrayals of eating pork, they might try to attack the issue from a standpoint of eating food to restore health doesn’t make sense… so it shouldn’t be in video games. To which my rational response would be, who cares? They might rant endlessly trying to claim its a big problem that breaks immersion or whatever, but its ultimately a smokescreen to cover an agenda.

            And that’s what it ultimately feels like here. People who probably consume a lot of political propaganda and are intolerant of other beliefs, attempting to rationalize why others should be as angry as them over a relatively benign issue.

          • Mr.Towel

            That’s your argument? Projecting an agenda? For which you can’t prove nor show? But to just dismiss the actual arguments themselves as “smokescreen”to hid an ulterior motive? For the likes of which you would have to possesses mind reading powers to be reasonably sure of? For crying out loud…

            Agenda my ass.

            You know what was one of my favorite movies of the past year? Zootopia. A frigging social justice warriors daydream. The parallels and political tone in that movie go completely overboard (to which I won’t discuss here since you’re already admitted you’re not investing your full attention to this discussion) . I liked that movie, a lot. You know why? Because even though it had a very strong social justice tone to it, it was well directed, well scripted, well animated, well thought, rich, joyful. It was a very well made message. One I disagree with on principle but it was extremely well made and an enjoying experience nonetheless. Kudos to them, I’ll give them praise for they deserve it.

            And so is the case with the many leftists authors and thinkers I’ve enjoyed all my life. I wouldn’t have to be able to even touch modern philosophy (16th century onwards) if I had this political agenda you accuse of me. I not only read but respect them even though I vehemently disagree with them because they’re good, they’re much above the rhetorical propaganda we usually see running around our times, they’re truly dialectical and not just rhetorical. They’re interesting and truly challenging.

            But that’s not what we’re having on this industry. What we’re having is sheer political propaganda. It’s the revolutionary cultural war. There’s nothing else to it. There’s no articulation, no human consideration, no self-doubt, no genuine goodwill. It’s the “gamers are dead” kind of discourse. It’s “pushing buttons”. It’s the moral a grandstanding of self-righteousness. “I’m right, you’re wrong and you’re hateful and you should like what I’m doing for it is what is right. I know what’s better for you.” while having no consideration for reason, logic or even discussions. Above criticism, they refuse to discuss right from moment one and continue to call you a hateful bigot not matter what kind of reasonable argument you have against their wrongdoings. Continue to call retailers to stop selling “haram”games while saying they would not take your games away, calling for the head of “infidel” artists while screaming for diversity and all criticism is nothing but “hate”.

            We aren’t doing the same. Not by a long stretch. We’re not afraid to have reasonable discussions, as I’m doing with you, and even though we do mock their works we don’t call Steam to stop selling “Life is Strange” or for theaters to stop exhibit “Zootopia” or even to dream of such powers.

            I’m sorry, but if your whole argument is an accusation of an agenda… there’s no way I can respond to that. An accusation it’s just that an accusation, with no proof it’s just a theory, a thought, an hypothetical thing. Which is just dead right wrong with my personal history. I grew up as an atheist. Didn’t believe anything, thought any kind of creed was just piece of shit, :things for smaller minds”. But I had at least the respect to read christian authors. On time, I became a christian, and I still not only hear, read and respect atheists thinkers and authors, I see and enjoy authors and movies, and books, music which are completely mocking and critical of Christianity. But somehow, I’m a kind of “a political muslim who can’t accept healing porks and invents all sort of crazy arguments against pork” when I’m just saying “this pork is a shitty idea” and saying why so.

            This is no argument, this is just name calling.

            You seem to have a completely different idea to what experiencing video games is like. And it seems to be one that just doesn’t care. If you had fun it’s alright. Doesn’t matter that didn’t made sense, it was still fun. Actually, you seem to be on the argumentation that if you just ignore SJW, nothing bad will happen. Which I’m sorry, but it’s just naive. We have many real world examples to show otherwise. From small retails to almost whole countries…. but if you don’t care right from the start, who am I to make you care?

          • Ari Goldman

            To be honest its hard to analyze the merits of your points as you seemingly favor bombast over making well-structured arguments. It seems like you are more interested in giving speeches rather than having a discussion.

            I don’t know if this is some sort of tactic to cover up a lack of substance, or simply to bore me into submission. But if its the latter, its working.

          • Mr.Towel

            If you don’t have the energy to even read comments properly…

            My arguments have been laid out very clearly on all of my lasts posts. You certainly aren’t reading them by lack of detail or presentation. It seems you’re just being lazy.

            If you want another summary here it goes:
            The focus on proselytizing their ideologies is a misplaced game development focus. We’re getting more shitty writing and more shitty mechanics exactly because of their political proselytizing.

          • Mr.Towel

            Catering is a funny choice of word. I don’t see anyone screeching about the lack of “muh representation”.

          • Tom

            reverse sjw, Sane normal people you mean?

            I will wait until the reviews come out before deciding whether to buy it. If it, like some other big game franchises i can think of, pushes this sjw agenda, then they can stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.

          • Ari Goldman

            Well fair enough, I guess I just assumed it was in relation to this game being that this is the comment section for the article, and all the other loonies are flying off the handle and having their imaginations run wild.

            The reverse SJWs irritate the crap out of me so maybe I jumped the gun. Since they are every bit as whiney if they perceive a game as not catering to them, but with an added layer of hypocrisy.

        • But even worse is you have concocted an entire story in your head about how SJWs ruined a game, based on a single picture of some white dudes, because your persecution complex is off the charts. You lunatics need serious help.

          Huh? What? Bro, the comment you’re responding to was talking about SJWs in general. I don’t know or really care if Far Cry 5 will be about “muh diversity” or not. The cover art is cool as it is. I have no idea what you’re on about, mate.

      • Ari Goldman

        Maybe I’m missing the forced diversity in the picture of a bunch of white dudes. Its funny, the people who complain about SJWs are even bigger whiney babies. But there is a special brand of stupid mixed in as you do the exact same shit you deride them for, ie whining about games that don’t cater to your personal sensibilities.

      • I think it’s more to do with SJW infestation of these companies, I think what needs to be done is to get these progtards completely kicked out of the industry, and employ new people on staff who aren’t a bunch of authoritarian leftist libtard feminist shit-stains.

        But yeah like you say, these idiotic Social Justice-pushing companies vanishing will be good too, they certainly deserve it.

    • Technocality

      This is exactly why I’ve stopped buying games from Western developers, and exclusively buy from Japanese ones. Not just because of how politics seems to have completely overtaken Western gaming to an alarming degree in which it can no longer be ignored, but also because of how soulless Western games have become over the years.

      Everything is a clone of either Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty or GTA and always strive for “realism”, often in a grey/brown environment, when gaming is supposed to be about escapism into a fantasy setting. The Japanese understands this for the most part, and although they’ve sadly settled for watered down localisations, and the giant that is Square Enix have repeatedly given in to SJW idealism on titles like Final Fantasy and Star Ocean, I’d rather give them money (for their Japan developed games, not Tomb Raider, Hitman etc.) than their greedy, politically pandering, uncreative Western counterparts any day of the week. Fuck the Western entertainment media, and what it has become, the only reason why SE follows suit is because they’re afraid of losing money in America, one of Japan’s biggest incomes in everything entertainment related. If the likes of Ubishit, Activishit and Electroshit Arts starts to realise that blue pilled gaming is not a sustainable business model at all (primarily because SJWs never actually gives money to anything they “support”) in the long run.

  • RichardGristle

    Fuck Ubisoft.

    Please pirate this game if you absolutely must play it/were planning on purchasing it.

  • tajlund

    These companies just need to learn they can’t win. The SJW’s move the goalposts. If the victims of the “evil, white men” are women or minorities, then the SJW’s will go ballistic about that too. It’s a no win situation. Just freaking make games and quit trying to pander.

    • RichardGristle

      Na, fuck these companies. They can drain their wallets and go under by continuing to tread the SJW-appeasement waters.

    • The pandering will continue until the mainstream games media changes.

      Developers and publishers will always create and publish games that please the mainstream games media. They are the ones that influence and dictate what is “acceptable” and “unacceptable”.

      For things to change, get these SJWs out of the industry and media. If you don’t, things will remain as they are.

      • Keystone

        I’m hoping that a lot of actual gamers go to E3 this year and tell the developers there what they really want and what they really think about these hack “journalists” claiming to speak for everyone.

        • lol, as if they’re going to listen to the gamers.

          All these Western developers and publishers care about is their precious company PR points and to not offend but please the mainstream games media, SJWs and feminists.

          The only way that video games can be great again is to completely kick these SJWs and feminists out of the industry.

          • Alistair

            You can only protest “Peaceful” if lot of gamers Carry bannders and shouted that would cause quite a stir.

            Is the only way to grab their attention because it been done before and what i say above is not important.

            Because some “May” Carry that out. But june not far off now.

          • And if gamers actually do that, I can tell you precisely what’s going to happen next.

            The mainstream games media like Kotaku and Polygon and other SJW sites like The Mary Sue will be screaming and labeling these gamers as “harassers”, “sexists”, “misogynists” and “racists” because they have the nerve to speak up and dislike the cancer that is feminism.

            The gamers can protest as peacefully and politely as possible but the mainstream games media will absolutely find a way to slander them with the labels above.

            It’s a no-win situation.

            Kicking these SJW retards out of the gaming industry is the only way.

      • Phasmatis75

        Rather disagree with you on things remaining the same. The AAA industry is dying. This pandering is only accelerating the crash which has been unfolding slowly over the last few years. With fewer and fewer games coming out.

        Eventually one company is going to go under, there will be a rightful panic amongst investors and they’ll dump video game stocks forcing the entire industry into oblivion.

        • Ari Goldman

          lol, I can tell you don’t own stocks. Video game stocks have been soaring for years, VASTLY outpacing the market. Its actually pretty ridiculous. One of the best industries you can invest in. The only thing they are learning is to keep doing what they are doing.

          • Mr.Towel

            They’re profiting on shitty practices. Microtransactions and segmented DLCs. Just this month Superdata release their report of the most profitable games through the Q1 of 2017. Top three games were Fifa17, Battlefield 1 and GTA V, all games heavy on the microtransaction front or the DLC front.

            Bubbles always grow before they burst, investment is not the measure of success but the measure of the size of the bet. You have to look for trends, generations bias and the like to predict a fall. Spending alone can be misleading since the rising costs can inflate the number and make them look bigger than the previous years when the fractions might just be stagnant or falling.

            If the mobile industry showed us anything, is that as profitable as free-to-play/microtransactions models can be, they don’t last for the long run, it’s just a quick mining. Money whales hold no memory so your brand can never stand on its own while actual gamers do hold memory and their numbers will bring down the companie’s image and prestige, on the long run this can pose many problems for them.

          • Ari Goldman

            Doesn’t matter if they are profiting on shitty practices, they are profiting. What exactly is this fall you are predicting? You think people are gonna stop buying games because of microtransactions? Because there are no indications that’s even remotely true, only that consumers are growing more accepting of them.

            Young people are getting introduced to gaming everyday, and older people aren’t quitting. And the slow transition away from physical games is steadily increasing margins.

            Sorry but all this doom and gloom is nothing more than wishful thinking and paranoid delusions. The Gaming industry is quite healthy.

          • Mr.Towel

            I’m not saying the gaming industry will crash. I’m saying the current AAA model is likely to stop being profitable in the future (future, that’s why if they’re profiting now it isn’t all that relevant), this is no doom and gloom. All segments of an inflated industry are profitable till the segment stop being profitable. That might happen suddenly (a crash) or slowly, but the causes for why it stopped being profitable are always rooted years before than when they actually stop being profitable, that’s why investors pay for market analyses spanning years of data and studies of generational’s preferences, you can predict market shifts with them.

            If more spending means people are more accepting of shitty practices is jumping the shark. Money whales do exist and they are the ones that bring numbers up, but they don’t represent the majority’s preference.

            About a generation swap, it doesn’t seem to be happening. The older gamer generations are not dropping fast enough, they’re just changing their gaming habits, they are still present. If they pass their knowledge to the younger generation, the young generations will also grow distaste for shitty practices faster than companies can compensate for the loss of prestige and speculation.

          • Phasmatis75

            I can tell you don’t follow economics. The stock market is increasing overall and is nearing a crash on par with the great depression era. That aside I’ve witnessed each major publisher release fudged numbers and no GAAP accounting reports while they inch closer to bankruptcy. Stock prices are not a sign of economic health. They are a sign of investor confidence.

            Investors are by and large idiots. They don’t care if a company is healthy or not, they’re not buying to own they’re buying to sell. Once the stocks get high enough and begin their downturn they’ll sell.

            Now Take Two announced a delay in Red Dead and their stock nose dived to the lowest it has been in years, only to return when they told investors they had another major game in development. Take Two doesn’t have any profitable franchises out side Rockstar.

          • Ari Goldman

            it didn’t nose dive to the lowest it had been in years… not even close, more like the lowest in 3 weeks.

            And no it didn’t skyrocket because they told investors they had another major game in development. It skyrocketed because they released their earnings report, and they beat expectations, like they always do… which is why their stock is continually soaring. GTA5 prints money.

            I have no idea why you just say things that are demonstrably false…

    You have to enlighten me today billy,

    • Look at Patrick tweet he said it not appropriate for 2017.

      Nah, look closely. He says “extreme nationalism would be awfully appropriate in 2017.”

      He’s advocating that Ubisoft center a game around crazy white Christian nationalists.

  • MONAD

    I fucking called it. I knew it would be one of those “CHRISTIANS ARE CRAZY CULTISTS” plot points. Mark my words, Far Cry 5 will spend the majority of its campaign bashing Republicans and Trump. This bullshit is partially why I stopped paying attention to Ubisoft a long time ago. Ubisoft was actually quite good before all this social justice bullshit started infecting people.

    Another thing that pushed me away from Ubisoft was their cringe worthy E3 press conferences. Aisha Taylor is just ..not funny on her own like that. Honestly, I don’t give a shit that she’s a black female that plays games, because people are constantly pushing that kind of narrative in our faces. I’m done with Far Cry,

    Fuck you, Ubisoft.

    • fenshing

      I really have grown to dislike Ubisoft. I do still like Assassin’s Creed but only for being able to run around historical places… I zone out during the story! Oh and I wouldn’t pay full price and most of the time buy them used! I mostly ignore everything else they do now… which is a shame.

  • fenshing

    Yep, Muslims can blow up little girls and Christians are the bad guys. I am so sick of this kind of crap and even more so after recent events. I bet they think they are sooo clever, but every Christian that shows up in gaming is a crazy Jim Jones or Westboro Baptist Church type of person. I can even like a game that has some kind of crazy cult that uses Christian trappings but Ive just lost my patience with it now. But hey what can they do? It’s not like they can paint Muslims bad… they would get themselves killed doing that! Better to play it safe and target Christians.

    • durka durka

      and like i said above, no one even talks about the eastern orthodox christians who had nothing to do with, whatever the left is so pissed off about the catholic christians.

      I’m gonna wait and see before I make a judgement. I’m not gonna lie, as a christian this has my blood boiling to some degree but I really try not to make the same mistakes that sjw’s make by jumping to conclusions without proper evidence. If this game is what it looks like then not only am I done with the farcry games but also ubisoft as a whole.

      • fenshing

        I agree really. If I am surprised and the story is different than it seems, knowing the state of games right now I don’t hold out much hope, I would give it a chance. But that chance has to be earned after being burned too many times.

        • wassupgaming

          How is making fun of cultists a bad thing? So if the game was about attacking muslim cultists instead, would you be having no problems with it?

          • fenshing

            Well in the media, more times than not, “cultists” are portrayed as what all Christians are. I am a Seventh Day Adventist and I constantly have to see people in the media say that the Branch Davidians were offshoots of the Adventist Church. Which they were not! They came out of other groups like Shepherds Rod and have nothing to do with the Seventh Day Adventist Church. But they push that idea to try and smear Adventists as cultists. When the SDA church is the fasted growing Christian denomination and runs the second largest network of schools and hospitals around the world by a religious institution. But to the media we are crazy cultists…. and Muslims who blow up children are just misunderstood.
