Sony PlayStation worldwide studios president, Shuhei Yoshida, told MCV UK in a recent interview that the company needs to cater its games to all “kinds of people”, including everyone of every race, age, gender, sexual orientation and religious belief.
The answer came from a question about Sony’s recent E3 showing, which was focused on what MCV UK described as a demonstration in “growth in maturity, minority representation and diversity”. Shuhei Yoshida responded by saying…
“I think it is extremely important as the games become more and more mass-market entertainment; we need to cater to all kinds of people, whatever the age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or belief. As we provide an experience to game players to become a hero or heroine to do amazing things in our games, it is good to try to create protagonists that people of different backgrounds could associate with. “
Interestingly enough, Sony of America banned the release of Omega Labyrinth Z in the West, indicating that Sony isn’t quite as inclusive as Yoshida lets on.
Despite that bit of censorship, Sony was called “inclusive” and “progressive” by the mainstream media and enthusiast media on the Left for putting an out of context lesbian kiss front and center on stage at E3 during their press conference. Such antics have been part of an ongoing agenda by Naughty Dog to be more “inclusive” and “diverse”. Neil Druckmann even responded to anti-SJW critics online saying that the more they criticize Naughty Dog’s diversity agenda, the more diversity they will include in their games.
Some of Naughty Dog’s staff have even gone so far as to tell anti-SJW gamers that they “don’t make games” for them.
When the agenda was called out in a video by RobinGaming, a former Naughty Dog fanboy, various websites such as ResetEra, VGChartz, and N4G began blocking and banning discussion of the video, preventing people from criticizing Naughty Dog’s agenda.
Many gamers came out of E3 feeling as if the top publishers were focused more on pushing a sociopolitical agenda as opposed to focusing on making compelling and interesting games. However, various communities and media outlets have been focused on only pushing the Leftist agenda while attempting to squelch dissenting opinions.
Things are made worse when companies like Facebook openly talk about social engineering programs to help change the way male gamers view games, and to enforce more females to engage in the gaming industry.
In this particular case, we can very readily see that the Naughty Dog agenda isn’t just Naughty Dog’s, but rather Sony’s agenda.
