Puppeteer's lack of a female lead because it didn't have anything to do with the Developer's vision is "weak sauce"? Developers should no longer care about idiots like Nadina Osmani.

"Can't disregard the needs and wants"
*sigh* This still about critiquing gaming as an art form?
Also.. If playing games is just like "playing pretend", why force your feelings, social issues and political correctness on to the game? This shight reeks of entitlement.

So sick of people like this, she considers developers who don't include females in their game(s) are just lazy. Where do they pull this shyt from? XD

Why should devs be forced (via shaming) to include females if they don't want to? Can't these idiots just be mature enough to handle being told "no female characters this time"?
No? Ok, but we can't be biased can we? Developers must include everyone.
You know that black people are under-represented in gaming right? Force em in!
You are aware that the LGBT community is under-represented in gaming? Force em in!
Did you know that when it comes to Hispanics, they're not in a lot of games? Force em in!
Sup buddy! Don't ya know that there aren't that many fat playable characters in video games? Force em in!

At what point...... AT WHAT FOKON POINT do gamers and developers say enough to the social justice shaming without fear of being labelled "sexist", "racist", not inclusive", "lazy" and "hateful"?
Gaming was just fine before putzes like these people opened their traps. 7_7
