    BF1 was such a horrible fucking game that I am not even bothering with BF5, especially with their SJW horseshit. I can play the new Insurgency and World War 3 looks cool so far.

    I guess playing a strong independent Kurdish former slave woman is better than a Scottish amputee in World war 2.

    Supposedly, the two women at the end of the singleplayer trailer are Jewish lesbian lovers.

    And I thought that Fallout 76 had a lot of giggles to offer.
    Will be a close run between the two.
    Which one will be more hilarious?

    It's actually, rightfully, considered one of the best comics DC has put out in at least half a decade. All three of this series are worth a read.

    I'm genuinely coming to the conclusion that all these weird freaks that want to change the world have been sucked up by aliens and have had their brains sucked out through the anus when they were probed.

    Firstly no way did he have this imaginary conversation with his daughter about sticking womynz in games secondly this game has nothing,nothing to do with the second world war aside from shitting on the memory of the people who actually served in it.

    Why do they stick this stuff in to deliberately piss people off ? disabled women freedom fighters,black samurai,lesbian storyline seriously what is the point ? It won't change anything they'll lose sales and make themselves look utterly retarded.

    Final thought anyone who says "They're on the right side of history" should be immediately hanged for being a cretin.

    Way I see it, this all started either in very late 90ies or early 00s, when people in the marketing depts realized that it's easier and more lucrative to pander to the problem demographic than to try to correct its course, which is pretty much exactly at the "death of the action hero" phase of pop culture. That's the point at which you started getting whiny annoying emo gits as protagonists in major blockbusters instead of the usual Manly McMan type of action hero that grins and bears throughout - say, Spider Man vs Die Hard type of films.

    We also get series that utterly pander to millennials and failed Gen Xers that go "It's fine to be an uncharming annoying geek, in fact it's kinda funny and you totally get the girl without working on yourself in any shape or form" - something that 90es YA soaps tended to avoid if I recall correctly, it was still about overcoming adversity and becoming a better, stronger, more charming version of self vs the "everything goes, embrace your quirks" shit. Yeah you know what, those caustic characters you see on TV that are funny? Ya I can be that way 24/7 and for some reason I kinda have to curb it because, shock of shocks, people find it funny for about 30 minutes a day and not all in one go.

    So naturally now we get to the point where people have been pandered to for nearly two decades, and here's your fucking result, everything's supposed to go, all quirks are supposed to be embraced, and if you failed at, I dunno, whatever, be it getting a job or fulfilling one of the most basic biological functions like, I dunno, have sex, fuck making an effort, say it's political, blame others and make up some amazing shit niche belief or fetish to excuse your failure. Failed to date? Why you're a grassexual owlkin! Fuck you, cis-het opressors! Failed to get a job? Fuck you, that's my choice! Pay for me, mom and dad! What's this, a game's trailer is shit? Let's evoke a simple strawman that will shut everyone up! Hooray!

    History falsification is a main feature of societal late-stage decadence.

    You know what the next line will be. 'Misogynists are killing women in videogames, and thats a bad thing!' 'Videogames are domestic abuse simulators, is your wifes son training to be a wife beater?' and other such nonsense.

    It goes back further. Marketing of some major brands started reflecting some ideas quite early 90's. Adapting to trends like Grunge made it easy and adapting was also necessity. I think the general idea was maintain good corporate image so these generations wouldn't felt distanced from their more or less expensive products.

    What comes to films, it's good to remember that it takes time from idea to get to production and production itself takes time. So many films that were released early to mid -90's were in spirit very much 80's films. I think Street Fighter (based on arcade) is good example of changing climate. It doesn't try to take itself seriously and it's actually pretty fun 80's film. Kill count is in perhaps even 100 or so (no blood though), some jokes are bad, more or less tongue in cheek, and really politically incorrect, yet, rated PG. You can't do that stuff any more. I speculate that if it was released in the 80's it weren't been panned so badly, because it's decent 80's film, but it was released in 1994 and it was already a different world.

    Will this bring about the collapse of the gaming industry as we know it?

    One can only hope.

    The Devs' did not use actual modern wars as a setting for Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 and it seems it is not isolated to Battlefield, as modern shooters with WWII origins, cowardly, done the same. With my standards further lowered for these shooters (within regards to the presentation of history), I should expect Battlefield 5 will have made-up battles with the katana wielding British soldiers fighting against the suicide vest wearing Japanese troopers (ironically, somewhat accurate, for the Japanese military did task their troops to do things similar) and for the reboot of Model of Honor to flat-out be alternate history. (Yet another unintentional irony, this would be more respectful than what Battlefield 5 is)

    The more important thing is that you make games for adults. why the fuck are you now all of a sudden wanting to make games for children.
    The people that buy your fucking games are not children, children don't have money their parents do. Nearly every parent will look at Battlefield 5 and think "what in the fuck is this?! no Timmy you're not getting this one" and if they did buy it then Grandpa comes along as says "What kind of degenerate bullshit is this?". They've completely and utterly missed the mark on this one. Its more that the lead designer thought that he could use a AAA studio as a means to raise his child. That is beyond retarded. The market naturally acted as it should have and I look forward to DICE's closure.

    EA was beginning to lose it's status as the absolute worst and most hated gaming publishers in the industry, so they had to come out with a way to put themselves back to villain stardom.

    "Accept it or don't buy the game".
    How is this even a choice at this point?
