The most progressive game of the summer is the one you're probably not playing

Polygon: "Games can change. We just need to learn a thing or two from Kim Kardashian: Hollywood." (Android, iPad, iPhone, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood)

I can't tell if they're serious or not.

If they're joking, I bet this went waaaaay over most people's heads.

If they're serious. I doubt even the most ardent feminist could be so stupid as to find a shallow cash-in mobile game about a shallow celebrity who virtually prostituted herself into stardom (or perhaps infamy) as empowering or progressive. Give me Gears of War with all its grunty shooting a hundred times over this trash.

Ignoring games that are actually decent like Tomb Raider, Last of Us, Child of Light, Beyond: Two Souls, etc. is a crime. Trying to say Kim Kardashian: Money Printer is progressive is an insult to the human race.

The fact that they can type makes me pretty sure they're not brain-dead... so I'm going to go with it being a joke.

Such optimism, I used to be like you, but this is polygoon we're talking about here.
To be honest, I don't know why their garbage articles keep getting approved here because at this point their website is a joke.
Edit: Also, the article is the very definition of clickbait. DO NOT CLICK IT.

Polygon.....you lost the tiny amount of respect I had for you.

After the whole Mario Kart 8 fiasco nobody can really take your site seriously.

mario kart 8 fiasco?
Metallox  +   143d ago
They predicted less than 2 million copies of Mario Kart 8 sold by March of 2015... and guess what? The game only needed one month to sell that. It's a fiasco indeed.

" ...filtered through the eyes of one beefy white guy after another."

Stopped right there, here goes polygon again... writing a bunch of drivel based on one persons ideas not being catered to.

Scrolled down the page and the first link to a video is "Meet the John Wayne of the Borderlands: Pre Sequel"

Spoiler: ITS A WOMAN!

Said nobody... EVER!

Yeah, they lost me when I saw that.

Did she seriously point out that just because you have the option of being a gay avatar then that means this game is worth paying attention to?

Sorry, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, etc. Kim Kardashian did it so it's therefore more worthy of praise.

By the way, can someone tell me why she's famous? Her and Paris Hilton...I just don't get the POINT to them. They don't DO anything worth noting. "Famous for being famous" is something that needs to die and never should have been a thing.
donwel  +   143d ago
To answer your question, Kardashian is famous for doing a sex video (seriously) and Hilton is famous because her dad owns the Hilton hotel chain and shares his fortune with daughter dearest.
diesoft  +   143d ago
I know they've done that but why are they famous? Kim, as far as I can tell, has no talent. At all. She took a D on camera and...then what?

Hilton also took a D on camera. Then...what? Her dad is rich and...uh...hmm. South Park is pretty accurate about her being a stupid, spoiled whore.

They're not the first people to have sex on camera. They're not the most beautiful people (especially Paris) so... what is there to admire about them? Any success that came after the sex tape is built upon the foundation of BANGING A DUDE ON CAMERA. So...what is the point to those females? Why do I keep getting news of whatever they're doing shoved down my throat by "the news"?
hkgamer  +   143d ago
i think kim k father is famous as well as her step father.

obviously not as rich as the hiltons though.
@diesoft

being a celebrity/ star doesnt mean you need a talent in the normal way. kim k and paris seems to know how to keep stardom. im guessing they have a brilliant manager and publicist that knows exactly what to do.

i think a good way to look at it is entourage. seems to show how hollywood is like, or atleast show how it looks like in publics eye.

Hey, they're right about one thing... I'm not playing

"Early on in the game, my female avatar cruised into a socialite who accused me of **macking** on her man."

haven't heard macking used since 1998.. anyways anyone, male or female, who thinks this game deserves praise in any way shouldn't be allowed to post on gaming sites we all goto for (mostly) valid news.. no true gamer could find see a shred of depth or enjoyment in this game.. regardless of what this authors first paragraph said I'm calling bs..
JEECE  +   143d ago
I'm really disappointed by the lack of 7.5 jokes here.
hkgamer  +   143d ago
im a pretty straight forward person, so if i say something rude or offensive then i apologize in advance.

if i am correct, than this game is marketed towards girls and gay guys. so having a gay option is completely normal. i mean it seems to be a kim k social fashion game. what other demographic would like this? im pretty sure kim ks actual fans are the same demographic that would be interested in this.
