Actually, as a counter to the author's Pokemon example, I do kind of feel uncomfortable with the concept behind Pokemon. Ostensibly, the explanation for the Pokemon fighting is that they want to fight and they are your friends; but animals wanting to fight doesn't mean we should put them in a position to fight. Roosters and dogs fight each other naturally, that doesn't mean we should put them in a ring and let them go at it, does it? Now granted, I played Pokemon as a kid and animals fights disgust me, but the game does kind of send a message that animal fighting is okay as long as the animals are cool with it and you're nice to them.

Well its pretty much bias exposed. It was a fantastic release but completely overlooked. Yet some people still call the Second son mediocre somehow. Its a technical marvel, Again the hate continues.

People seem to be way to quick on hating things in this day and age.
