You follow a thread for a game that is held in high esteem by those in the tactics community. The game, while sporting cutting edge mechanics that spur intellectual engagement, suffers a fatal flaw. It has anime art direction.
Decades later, the game’s engine is recreated and open sourced. The scourge of anime is still present in the game’s DNA.
There is a mod that many love, for reasons that you understand. Tactics, options, gameplay variety. These are gameplay options that you exalt.
You look at screenshots, and are shattered. Anime representation of 10 yo girls. Pedophilia-inspired art design. The community heaps praise on the cultural trash pile that defines your fedora’s jaunty slant.
Outside of your community’s pedophile art connoisseurs, strategy gamers try to understand what makes the hype real. They push against the cultural trends that inflate the sexualization of children.
then the brave codex poster discovers the search function and invalidates all of the previous observations by pointing out that some people, interested in squad based tactics, do not enjoy pedophilia-inspired graphics.
