There are a lot of constants: The expansion of the universe, SJWs getting things censored, human stupidity, and majority of hardcore gamers are male. A bunch of gaming studios have tried ignoring that last one for as much as possible, only for the reality of the numbers to bite them on the rear end… real hard. That’s what happened to Ubisoft when they finally looked over the stats and realized that majority of the people playing Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey don’t like playing as a chick.
Destructoid is reporting that in the latest Game Informer Magazine, they interviewed director Scott Phillips and he revealed that two-thirds of gamers played as Alexios, the male Spartan, instead of the female warrior, Kassandra. This is despite Ubisoft plastering Kassandra all over the promotional material and SJW journalists constantly hammering people over the head about Kassandra being the canon (lesbian) protagonist, most people didn’t want to play as her.
Phillips noted that those stats surprised him because during play-tests the split was 50/50 and thought that more people would play as Kassandra. This also surprised the team, given that a bunch of lying media outlets proclaim that 50% of the gaming industry is made up of female gamers, when in reality they’re including casual games, Facebook games, and mobile games in that stat, and as has been revealed in multiple articles, the casual crowd is a completely different buying demographic than the hardcore gaming demographic, the latter of whom is made up mostly of males.
Females prefer puzzle games, role-playing titles, casual games, social games, and casino games. Now some of you might be saying “But isn’t Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey an RPG?” and to that I say “Only in name.”
It’s not one of those immersive, story-driven role-playing games, it’s one of those cheesy grindy games where you waste a lot of time being bored, grinding in that horrible combat system, and scavenging for loot. Most chicks probably don’t dig that kind of work-rate mechanic in gaming that turns the whole experience into a perfunctory and straining exercise in maintaining focus and patience. Most women have far better things to do than grind all day or pay Ubisoft for some cash shop item so they don’t have to play anymore.
Anyway, hopefully this is an eye-opener for Ubisoft and they stop being stupid when it comes to “diversity” and “inclusion” as if anyone buys a game for that nonsense. They’re lucky a bunch of ignorant people bought Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, because if more people were aware of the historical revisionism, and Ubisoft’s “diversity” agenda, the sales would have tanked and there would have been a nice, shiny spot on the Get Woke, Go Broke Master List for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.
