Jade Raymond, founder of EA Motive, talked about the new open world action game IP and said she really wants to create a positive story about humanity.
Hard to create a positive story about humanity with EA breathing down your neck...one of the most negative things of humanity, a greedy ass corporation.
Are they responsible for polluting the oceans too? That's exaggerated
You'd be surprised how many corporations in this world glide over the easiest to do ethical stuff just to make even a tad more profit. No matter if it's Gaming, Film, Car, Food, Water, Electricity, Oil, Gas etc companies... Point is...it's EA, after the Star Wars cancellation, she's not in a very good boat is she?
He was talking within context, you're taking his comment to a different direction on the other hand.
MakoD, Its a humanity that can be sold to us for money, dude common!
Oh for f*%& sake.
When she says humanity she means a social justice game so yeah, EA will back that.
Starring Anita Skarkisan, Zoe Quinn and Brianna Wu
You took the words right out of my mouth.
@Morganfell Good call on that. It seems to be the trend with the largest publishers these days.
My Antifa comment was meant for Foxtrot.
But that doesn't make any sense as they are all SJW warriors and likely to support antifa as well.
So wait a minute, say she actually meant that(the SJW stuff) if they made a game with male protagonists they wouldn't promote ot like that "A Positive Story About Humanity"? So what then? " Modern atrocities"? Damn we are headed for the gutter as a species...
@Foxtrot Dont joke, this might become a reality! Then again it will be great to watch it tank.
Take bets to how long before its made into a MP game if its not already? And if it is MP, if its only MP, how the heck to tell a positive story about humanity when you know people d**ks throughout it?
You are late for your Antifa meeting...
What? Actually you have it wrong. I would only go to an antifa meeting to slap those people. Antifa people are the ones often filled with SJW types.
Not arguing that but instead of focusing on the negative I would suggest positive reinforcement. Especially if this is something the community wants. The ideas start there.
So this is a fictional story....
Well for a company that ruined Mass Effect, Dragon Age, NFS, Star Wars and almost BF + act like a ***** about MT. So yeah humanity is an absolute legend and fictional story for such firm.
I'm glad someone said it, there's nothing positive about humanity. Agent Smith said it best when he likened humanity to a virus.
My thoughts exactly. The Human story is a tragedy. It will not end well, not matter how much we "learn" about the past.
i love that woman... she's really sexy /ot
I agree, she is gorgeous and talented!
*you have to pay for the positive loot boxes and the positive DLC* Sorry, i had to do it guys.
I'm positive you're going to love these new gun skins.
Purchase five loot boxes and get the next free!
Do they come in pink?
No, just yellow. That's the most positive colour.
Pink is the new blue so no! Diarrhea green it shall be.
After what you lot did to Amy Hennig's Star Wars single player game? No hope. Unless it has some sort of way to milk it, these mofo's just won't make it. Vile company, truly.
I think you may be blaming her for something some big time executive probably made a move on. I'm hoping EA can learn it's lesson, as they truly do have some good IP's and when they really let their devs breath, they can make some decent games.
Look at BFV. This is where they are heading. I am guessing they will try to tone down any Anthem trailers to avoid backlash but at the end of the day they can't make a game anymore and just shut up. Its the thing with Neil Druckmann for which I absolutely do not care. He is embroiled with that as well but ND has kept a bit of a lid on him so far though you can see it in the cracks.
How about a story about EA shutting down?
Do you really think a multi million (if not billion) dollar company is going to shut down just because people have taken issues with a couple of their games. For all their bad business practices, the casual audience still buys into the nickel and diming. I don't support them personally, but it's clear that that people still buy their games.
But clearly it would be a positive story for humanity.
I think he was making a joke based on EA's lack of humanity and how their shutting down would be good for it...
" EA Motive " They already lost their alibi,thanks for the heads up lol.
Humanity and positive really do not go well together. Humanity will destroy itself. Sorry to crush your dream lol
I don't understand people like you. There is good and evil on this world but hating ones own species and in doing so themselves must be some sort of mental issue. There is a lot of positive in humanity itself. We are capable of the greatest things this world has ever seen. We won't destroy ourselves. We are survivors and we are capable to live anywhere and survive anything as a species. We will go far.
Metriod is right humans are trash and there is no hope for good, because good has to play by the rules while evil distorts and breaks them to push its agenda forward. Might as well just keep yourself entertained and happy and hopefully die without too much pain in yor life.
Lol that's so sweet of you to say Anubis 😙
FartLover420, Your idea of good and evil comes from Hollywood. In the real world things are not as black and white. There are no rules set for good and evil in the real world and as a matter of fact, both good and evil is a point of view. Something that may look evil to me might be good for you. Just as an example, look at the conflict in the Middle East. Do you think that the USA are the good guys and the Arabs are the bad guys? Well, the truth is much more complicated than this. There is a very good talk by Robert Bauval you should listen to, if you are interested. We are capable of both good and evil and it's up to each and every one of us to decide which side we will let win. You choose to see the world in a certain way based on your life experiences and you chose to live in a world dictated by Hollywood. So, that becomes your reality.
I just want to play a game about p*rn
Zzz zzz Zzz SJW shit is coming.
"she really wants to create a positive story about humanity" And EA will milk the eff out of it with loot boxes, pay to win items and overpriced skins.
It's so hard to do something like that without it seeming schmaltzy, disingenuous or just plain patronising. The Last Guardian /SotC have positive messages, but aren't really about "wow, you humans are great". Fundamentally I'm more interested in moral conflict than triumph, Detroit:BH and tLoU packed such a punch because you can relate it to your own sense of being, relationships and ethics.
I just can't believe how much she looks like Catie Minx. A person you should never ever google, especially not with "batgirl" in the search query.
How about a game that brings down the house of cards that is globalism, which goes hand in hand with PC culture, and groups like the democrats who support open borders, and erasing western culture and democracy.
You can buy a positiveness booster packs for $9.99/$19.99/$49.99. Preorder and get extra starting Humanity and an easy listening OST
I would say this is an obvious SJW production but all of EAs games are like that now so it fits right in.
I will try to remain optimistic but if her past is anything to base her future on then her idea of "humanity" is only plausible in science fiction and isn't just unrealistic it's downright delusional. Which makes a decent story terrible.
Don't tell me, another liberal, SJW, LBGTQ, feminist, 72+ genders production in the works, right? Sorry, I had enough "Positive Stories" from these out-of-touch commies
Commies?🤔 They seam more like fascists to be than communists.
Meh, two peas in a pod. I bet if you asked her if some industries should be run by the government (Healthcare, Energy, etc...) she would say yes. I see her as probably having both viewpoints.
Media collusion, warped identity politics and social decline are communist motifs. Communism is the opposite of Fascism. Both are state before people, but communists see the world as one singular entity(i.e globalist), they denounce nationalism as a social construct, rejecting human nature's tribalism. Fascists embrace nationalism as a singular entity to improve. Fascism as an autocracy rejects trade unions where control of both political and economic systems are consolidated onto a single individual. Communism is purely such opposite, it puts the state above all else where the workers control the means of all production, managing itself as one in essence large trade union. Both of course, like any ideology can be totalitarian and authoritarian.
Then there's other differences down the line such as private ownership which Fascism supports, and Communism denounces. Private businesses while regulated under Fascism, are outright nonexistent In Communism as the state owns everything.
EA: We want you to create a positive story about GaaS
It will be a Sims game: Gretchen Carlson’s Miss Amerika.
Gawd with one of the most soulless companies backing it I'm not hopeful!
a positive story about humanity? thats kinda boring.
i dunno. a tragic story is most of the times more interesting. since, if its a positive story from the get go... well u know. if everything is sunshine and rainbows in a story driven game then theres not alot behind it. imo.
Want to say I did not disagree with you. However, a positive story about humanity does not have to be all sunshine and rainbows. A positive story about humanity can be full of tragedy but have a good message for example how strong we are, or how much good we are capable of despite all the evil around us. Or having faith in humanity despite all the people trashing humanity on the daly basis which is a tragedy in itself. Don't you think?
She works for EA I feel sorry for her
10/10 would bang
EA and the word “positive” don’t fit together.
More PC Stories?
I have a crush on this chick but just make fun games, I’m tired of this hippy hipster “I want to create a positive story about humanity” nonsense.
What is hipster about a positive story about humanity? An example perhaps?
It's just a change for the sake of change to get notoriety... kinda reminds me of, oh say, hipsters? Think of it this way, what's the ratio of games that depict humanity in the negative to games that depict it positively and do any of those devs make that the focus of anything? It just feels too much like a setting of an agenda when you crusade that "I want to create a positive story about humanity". That's just how it comes off to me, if that's the narrative so be it... but coming out like, "Hey I'm going to change the industry and make it better with positivity" just feels forced.
