"‘Spider-Man’ on PlayStation 4 is a thrilling game and a naive, dismal representation of the character’s—and New York City’s—relationship with law enforcement" The Ringer says.
Wow. I don't think I read anything so overly pretentious. Talk about over thinking the game to the point of absurdity. Not every game is a commentary on real life ffs. Get over yourself and enjoy the game for what it is. A Game! It's not social commentary, so stop trying to turn every game into fking social commentary.
This is just another blog piece riding on the coattails of Kotaku's article written by an insane progressive leftist transgender social justice warrior. This is the type of political driven garbage we get from Kotaku and others who create a divide because they are so mental and warped they feel the need to disband news or even opinion for identity politics and social justice propaganda. It's a comic book game AKA fiction for Peter Parker's sake, and this is our world today, attacking our medium and using it as a platform to push an agenda. I'm sure these idiots will crawl into their safe spaces, pop a couple tide pods in their mouth and cry on Twitter why Spiderman (a white heterosexual male figure) is a cancer on society.
“an insane progressive leftist transgender social justice warrior.” That’s quite a mouthful.
Can people just let this game be, PLEASE
i am with you in regards to the fact that it's just a game and people need to chill out. but i think, like the writer of this article, the anti - social justice crowed overly makes a mole hill into a mountain. i consider myself a centre left social justice warrior, but even i cringe when people make something out of nothing because it tarnishes the fight for serious change that is needed in our society. like that female cop should spend her life in prison for killing that guy in his own apartment. now that would be better time spent writing an article about, not this bull.
This is just like the absurdity over Last of Us 2. People making up problems that aren't there.
@Veneno unfourtinately The last of us 2 is a totally different story ohhh you are so wrong about that one
So it's been a long while since I've been to New York. But does New York have some sort of contentious relationship with the NYPD? I know there have been some recent instances of police brutality reports, but 2017 had the least number of police shootings ever in NYC. Last I recall New Yorks, and even most of America's relationship with the NYPD was coupled with other first responders and that was of great respect for their actions and deeds during the 9/11 attacks. I'm sure that's settled down over time, although firefighters and EMS still seems to get a ton of respect everywhere, but have New Yorkers become so hateful of police that it requires a game to somehow represent a hugely jaded society that I personally haven't seen to be prevelant anywhere other than some hyperbole by media outlets which conflate everything to epic proportions through over-generalization, and using anecdotes to paint a view that simply doesn't exist.
Gotdamn boy it's a game based on a comic! Jesus some people just take stuff way to serious!
This is why I hate this social media.
Exactly. I don't know what the freaking issue is.
It's not a multi platform game!
Hey, author , quit trying so hard to make something out of nothing It makes you look dumb.
more like retard.
And we all know you never go full retard.
There is no problem. You are just trying to invent one.
Was this really necessary though?
It’s a damn VIDEO GAME . It is entertainment . Stop trying to turn everything into an issue that doesn’t exist just for clicks.
People need to make money,..food and crap like that,.. guys don't be so harsh,... it is actually well written,... though the premise is fucking stupid. Kid just wants to generate some cash,.. is it moraly ok,..? who knows,. Read worse shit on N4G daily . Spider man is Goty BDW .
Can the mods of this site start banning drivel like this? It just mucks up the front page.
I heard there's topics that have been banned, but a lot of stuff gets approved. I don't know why its ok for some trash to be banned, and some trash that gets approved, when it's all trash.
The Spider-Cop stuff was hilarious! No, I didn't read the article, which judging by comments and it's headline tries to turn this very funny dialogue in the game into something terrible. It's simple. I found it funny. It gave me a chuckle; a haha. 20 seconds later, the world and my thought process was the same as it was 1 second before. It's entertainment. Take a moment to enjoy it. Then go back to doing whatever it is you were doing, because there is work to be done, people!
No, it's basically saying Spider-Man working with the cops/cops being portrayed in a positive light is problematic as the real NYPD is supposedly evil.
This article is stupid and I regret reading it, wish I could get that wasted time back.
When people start taking videogames very seriously(excluding professional gamers) it's time to reevaluate their lives. It's a videogame man, and it's just a story that IG was telling in the game
Enjoying the Spiderman game immensely!!
Interesting how people keep trying to find stuff to bring this game down... first it was graphical downgrade, now it's this.. I wonder what next? why is spiderman a man??? #SMH
Is this satire?
I would say at least someone has found a fresh way to grasp at straws to try and downplay this game, but I believe I saw another equally dumb article to this effect yesterday.
Next article Spiderman is insulting chemistry teachers
This post gave me cancer spidermanlyinginbed.jpg
So is this a satire or rip off of the original Kotaku article? Spider-Man be snitchin!
What is wrong with these people it's not supposed to acuaretly portray real life it is fiction, some people seek attention at any cost even if that means having to tear down someone else's artistic vision and interject their particular world view and pass it off as an opinion or critique.
I agree and to take it one step further i think that its a dismal representation of nyc's relationship with super heros!!!!! We dont need them to ALWAYS save the day. We dont like them swinging off of buildings, it ruins the siding and its a distraction.
You know who thinks this article sucks. Spidercop... And me
Isn't a problem* they forgot that part in the headline.
My brain hurts from attempting to read this clearly out of touch with reality article.
Dismal portrayal of police relations representation “Hashtag IRL”. Some New York activist mad about cops being the good guys in a spider man game lol. You can’t make this shit up. People are losing it.
Can we just build the Trump California wall already?
Shake those angry SJW fists Justin, attacking a video game should defenitly solve all the worlds social issues, you muppet.
these people killed your local comic shop with this same retarded thinking. F'in commies
Wow, another cop article? Me smells politics... or just more salt from Spidey being a success.
This is like that guy that said inban article that he felt "icky" that Spider-Man helped the police and yes he used the word "icky". Damn, I cant stand beta-males. SJWs really are a cancer.
