Misogyny, racism and homophobia: where do video games stand?

Smill110

4 years ago

Guys, I think I've cracked how to win the respect of the 'patriarchal' world of games!

Remember that bit in Batman: Arkham Asylum when you're under Scarecrow's spell? Or the malaria in Far Cry 2? Or simply being pissed in GTA?

I think being in a diminished mental and physical state due to rampant hormones and bloodloss has the potential to be a really interesting mechanic in future 'PC' games.

Let's face it: trying to shoehorn female characters into games doesn't work.Instead, they should turn it into an extra difficulty setting: Female Mode!

You're weaker, slower, worse at driving, puzzles are more confusing, constantly being pursued by wild animals (they smell blood!), and have to put up with endless 'discrimination'!

That's how to get the real hardcore gamers to respect women. Try platinuming it now, Neckbeard!

Exactly. But then expect a very significant proportion of the audience to be alienated if they include themes the majority can't empathise with. For every non-male or non-straight complaining now, you'll have many more people feeling the same way.

I always got the nagging feeling that by dehumanising the Nazis, i.e. the (predominantly young) men who found themselves fighting for the Third Reich, we're not really any better than they were. Makes you realise how easy it would be to end up just like them.

Swap the word 'Nazi' with 'Jew', 'nigger', or 'untermensch' and see what you get.

@Old-Books Don't get me wrong. I was a NES and N64 kid growing up (but never had a SNES *sigh*) and bought a Wii early doors. I have all the good will in the world towards Nintendo. But it is getting tiresome seeing the same relatively obscure couple of titles evoked again and again as if they're some kind of panacea. You guys, the Wii U owners, are the ones that should be berating Nintendo to get their act together.

@Old_Books Correct. Except for maybe at a friend's house (unlikely, if I'm honest) or in a shop like HMV (still fairly unlikely). And why? Because I am unwilling to purchase a Wii U. And why is that? Because, based on the various indicators and criteria I use to make these kinds of decisions, the costs and risk outweigh the potential benefits. What do I mean by criteria? Things like how many must-have titles are available on this platform now (just one: SM3DW) and how many we are likely to see in future. And as for indicators? Lacklustre reviews in reputable gaming publications. Word of mouth (friends included), or lack of. A distinct lack of convincing marketing in the media or at retail (e.g. HMV). Basically, a paucity of factors that might convince me to set aside my skepticism about the viability of this product.

Will this console's fanbase trot this one out again and again, along with Wonderful 101 and (inevitably) Bayonetta 2, as mediocre games that, "Frankly, I've been having a marvelous time playing and can't see what all the fuss is about!"? You've been let down, guys.

It seems like when these guys are in 'corporate mouthpiece mode', the normal parts of their brain that controls speech gets shut down and over-ridden with this bizarre, stunted, slightly off, robot's interpretation of the language. Almost as if they are relaying it through a computer that is second-guessing everything, no matter how innocuous, and converting it into a series of insubstantial soundbites. It's fucking wank.

The way they've staggered the releases is very shrewd. Maximise the hell out of PS360's combined user-base. PC + 'next-gen' ports (shared x86 workload) once there's enough of an install-base and most of the would-be pirates have played it on last-gen consoles anyway. Anyone that bothered will double-dip for 'definitive edition'. Just how many units will this game sell?
