Most laughable SJW God of War article yet

Because, in the end, God of War is still a story about an angry dude violently killing things with his sharp tools. It's still dripping with masculinity.

 

Quote

wheels in motion is the death of Atreus' mother/Kratos' significant other. Such an important character, who is mentioned often through the story, is never even given a face, let alone a voice. You only see her still form, wrapped in ceremonial fabric, ready for the pyre. For a game, for an experience based completely around the death of a woman, she is given almost no actual presence in it.

 


"If you fridge a female character, someone’s going to call you on it," Anna Megill, narrative lead for Remedy Games, which developed Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Quantum Break, said. "Obviously, there’s still room for Mario and Spyro in games, but look at Lara Croft. The new Tomb Raider games have a depth and humanity that weren’t present in the older games."

 

 

Quote

"Violence in games is often the most shallow, uninteresting kind: physical violence, gore, a man putting a bullet in another man," Anna Anthropy, DePaul University's game designer in residence, said. "I'd like to see more games about systemic violence, about structural violence, about struggling against unaffordable health care and gentrification. There's so much more nuance we haven't explored."

 

Quote

And then you have the issue of race representation in God of War and beyond. In the newest game, Kratos is voiced by Christopher Judge, a black actor, but the character's race has always been — perhaps purposefully — unclear. It's certainly an ongoing fact that people of color are extremely underrepresented in video games. This new game does little to advance not only those people, but other cultures in the world.

 


"Give black actors more than a voice," Allen said. "If you were rebooting something, and you wanted a fresh look, they could have modeled Kratos after his voice actor. Also, please use other mythology... I’d like to see stuff set in Babylonian mythos, in Pacific Islander mythos, in North American indigenous mythos, that isn’t exploitative and dismissive, but driven with the same weight of importance, without the slightest bit of irony that brings us a game like the new God of War."

 

 

 

Quote

"Queer and trans people dragged games kicking and screaming into maturity, and games like God of War and publishers like Sony are capitalizing on the important work they've done," Anthropy said. "Would God of War exist without [queer dating simulator] Dream Daddy, and would Dream Daddyexist without queer romance games like We Know the Devil?"

Social justice and political correctness in everything!

 

''Make this character black, make this character gay, making this character a trans.''

 

Because a game about a cursed and immortal Spartan killing gods is a representation of our everyday modern life...

 

For fuck sake. Do these people understand how ridiculous they sound?

These morons think they are gaining some sort of journalistic credibility by virtue signalling towards every under privileged group they’ve ever heard of.

Is this like a Witcher 3 situation where the game didn't do anything wrong, but it's getting shit on for not doing Official SJW Branding of Right™?

People were crying about no option of fucking dudes as romance choice, where have you been. Any arguement that Geralt is a heterosexual ended up in that anyone that claims he's exclusively a heterosexual is actually an undercover homo.

When we complain about sjws, this is why.

 

You can't just have a dumb, fun, brutal action game anymore. No everything has to align with their world view.
