“Classist, sexist, and racist” — A Cheap Ploy for Pageviews

Medium: "It’s been 15 long years since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released, and critics—many of whom grew up with the game—have had plenty of positive things to say about the game over the years. It’s a critical darling, and one that’s well-earned its legion of fans. One Salon writer, Jon Hochschartner, has taken the opportunity to, instead of adding his voice to the positive chorus, denigrate the game as “classist, sexist, and racist.” As a final flavoring of dissent, he even calls out the game’s effrontery to animal rights." (Culture, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

"A Cheap Ploy for Pageviews" which Medium.com has now appropriated for its own use. Ah, the magic of rebuttals.

"A Cheap Ploy for Pageviews" is probably detrimental to the freedom of sexy expression, seeing the next-gen feel less sexy than current-gen.

Pageviews don't matter on Medium.com.

The more you pay attention to those who choose to get offended over nothing, the worse this trend will continue. Let them be offended by themselves while the rest of us enjoy playing video games.

If we keep legitimately arguing against their points, this will indeed happen. Not only don't they get it, but they don't listen. Explaining freedom of beliefs in media, or the fairness of the free market to a feminist, socialist or internationalist is like explaining evolution to a creationist. Their beliefs are too deep set and their minds are closed.

To be honest, I'd like to see less of these approved.

Even though the article in itself is a kind of a ploy for page views... I agree with it soooo damn much
