In this sensitive political day and age that we live in, games and franchises that once rocked the moniker of being counter-culture or an eye-brow raiser have mellowed down drastically. A perfect example of this while sporting hypocrisy is Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat 11. And as of now, a certain YouTuber has come forth to say that Mortal Kombat 11′s “censorship shows a much larger issue” at hand in its idiocy.
From Gatcha-like coin and gear grinding along with a loot-box inspired Krypt system to the woke Jax Tower ending, female characters purposefully de-sexualized, and the act of benevolent sexism and imbalanced sex appeal has finally got some people to quip back at the blatant SJW agenda behind Mortal Kombat 11.
Literally, it’s a case of Martin Niemöller’s poem where when your counterpart takes an inch and turns it into a mile, and you don’t speak out or doing anything against it, when there’s no ground left for you to stand on your counterpart swoops in and attacks you there’s no substantial ground to launch a counter-point. However, during the SJW culture war of celebrating getting woke and going broke, there are people pointing out the dangers of said celebration on the little ground that’s left.
YouTuber Upper Echelon Gamers takes the time to explain the “much larger” issue with Mortal Kombat 11 censorship, and how it doesn’t help the game in any capacity but only hinders the product at hand and that catering to an audience that has not been the target of the Mortal Kombat franchise for over a decade isn’t helpful.
Said YouTuber has to use random background footage since the video is highlighting ‘negative’ aspects of the woke fighting game to avoid the publisher and developer over Mortal Kombat 11 sending out a copyright strike, which has happened to The Quartering:
Anyway, the video that Upper Echelon Gamers released also touches on similar SJW cases like Warframe’s chat moderators and Battlefield V’s “white man” and “DLC” debacle. Additionally, you can read and see what said YouTuber published right here:
“The flavor of the month is apparently “showing skin” and it’s an idiotic trend to fundamentally alter established and historic costumes in long-standing franchises just to meet some constantly changing politically correct standard.
It’s easy to support the idea that multiple costumes should be available for those that want to cover up, or perhaps not… but fully changing half of the characters in a one-sided way with no element of choice is not the right tactic. It does not help the game in any capacity, it only hinders it and caters to an audience that has not even been the target of the Mortal Kombat franchise for over a decade.”
Time will tell whether or not people will collectively take a stand against this tyrannical double-standard ideology that is the SJW tight-rope walk or allow it to flourish and ruin anything it touches. But one thing that is obvious, the longer the SJW lingo is preached and actuated the more ground is lost to speak your mind or for that matter enjoy decades of something that was once beloved by many that will soon be shunned to no extent.
