If you want to talk about Social Justice Warriors and Naughty Dog in the same sentence, you won’t be able to do it on ResetEra. Someone created a thread for the topic over on the socially dystopian forum, but it was met with the quick and effective nuclear option employed by the site’s administrator, which included closing the thread after only four people posted a comment.
The thread’s closure was made public thanks to RobinGaming tweeting about it online.
A viewer just pointed out to me that somebody created a topic to discuss my video on the Resetera forum. It got locked after 4 posts.
Seriously dangerous & sad how low the bar is set now for topics to be deemed “too sensitive” so they aren’t allowed to be discussed. pic.twitter.com/NquJxTEfvP

If you visit the actual thread, which went up shortly after RobinGaming’s video on July 1st, 2018, it doesn’t even have time to get started before the administrator SweetNicole hops in and shuts it down.
Before the topic could really get started, it gets censored.
But this is par the course for this particular topic.
Over on Twitter there’s quite the hullabaloo going on regarding the video.
Activists on the Left are shouting it down as reactionary nonsense, while some of those in the center and on the Right are saying that it’s a well-reasoned piece that explores the issues of Naughty Dog veering off into the deep end of the SJW spectrum.
Naughty Dog games have always had relationship stories in them. It’s central to Uncharted. You had no problem with those. The only difference is that now the characters are gay. This video is simply summarized as “I can relate to women, but only if they’re white and straight.”

This is my biggest issue with your video. You assume too much and don’t provide any sound, concrete examples and evidence to prove your claims. Let’s assume Naughty Dog really is pushing a SJW agenda. So what? How is that bad or detrimental their games?

I just watched this video and I can’t believe that Naughty Dog executive tweeted out those comments. That is just madness that we can’t speak out for fear of SJW community lashing out…

I’ll admit here and now that I’m a Bisexual guy with high ambition in creating video games. I agree that there is a nasty agenda with Naughty Dog and that they are going overboard. You can say I do not agree with this SJW propaganda that is being forcefully put in.

This whole Naughty Dog has a sjw agenda thing is hilarious. Don’t worry dudebros with fragile masculinity I’m sure the next game they make will feature a middle aged blonde haired blue eyed dude just for you.

The 20 minute video discusses the nuance of the political sliding that Naughty Dog has been doing over the years, which has led to fanboys like Robin realizing that the company has begun pushing the envelop on the SJW agenda to the point of it becoming uncomfortable.
Some fans still refuse to acknowledge it, others have noted that this has been going on for a while, especially after former creative director Amy Hennig was outed from the studio.
Even attempting to discuss this subject on ResetEra is verboten, as the forum has a hard Left stance on all sociopolitical subject matter. And in this case, since Naughty Dog is adamant about promoting Social Justice, it means ResetEra isn’t going to allow criticisms or court discussion from its community regarding Naughty Dog’s intentions.
