Polygon writer insists that the RDR2 mission "A Quiet Time" is about machismo man attitudes and addictions, thus proving himself to be a Puritan.
That mission was great. Full of laughs! Spoiler . . . Lenny was nearly lynched for crying out loud. Which is why you're there. If anyone deserved to just let loose and have a nigrr of drinking it's him! . . . End spoiler Of course polygon saw a problem with it. When DON'T they see a problem?? 🙄
I've noticed that a lot from Polygon and other sources like Kotaku lately. It's frustrating how much they seem to want to push a PC agenda.
Yup, agreed it's really annoying. You'd think it would be a bad idea to attack your audience 🤔
Polygon is powered by pure estrogen, something you don’t find in cowboys nor saloons. There was bound to be a disconnect.
Look at their writers, their physical appearance. SJW Liberal is written all over them.
@deno, there's nothing "liberal" about puritanism.
Lenny and a what of drinking?? Lmao not sure if typo or bait
Oh crap! That was bad 🤦♂️ Night* of drinking 😂
Haha all good 😂😂
Whenver I see "Arthur Gies" I know I'm in for a read full of cringe. The Polygon writers don't seem to understand anything. Either that, or they're willfully ignorant. I think they just love to go against the grain. Sometimes it's for social justice reasons, and sometimes I really think they just love to be contrarian. It's as if they take pride in it.
Polygon writers occasionally fail to: - comphrend reality - know how to play the games they review - have credible sources - have journalistic integrity ...
False! They ALWAYS, not occasionally, fail at your stated list, among others.
Polygon Writers Fails to Understand Fixed
Polygon Writers Fail to Understand*
Polygon. The fail is implied. So you don't need any other words than Polygon.
Breaking News: Polygon writers are brain dead, more at 11.
That's not news, we've known that for a while now :)
Vox media is full of whiny snowflakes and beta males? Everyone knows this.
Could you imagine the kind of people that would work at polygon getting sent back to that time lol. Hilarious. The toxic masculinity would drown them. "Like omg it's 2018, it's so nice they had equal representation for the gang in RDR2 but what's up with all the bravado?!"
It's Polygon. That's something we already expect from them. Next week on Polygon: an "issue" about women/race/gays-lesbians-trans whatever and games.
*Polygon fails to understand video games. There I fixed it for you.
"So let’s start off by talking about the macho man attitude of the frontier and the West. Well, if you weren’t a hard, salt of the earth man…you were dead. That’s it, really." Wow, what a thorough and seemingly well researched dive into mid-western masculinity in the early 1900s. /S
They're cancer and it doesnt matter if boycotted their advertisers till they pulled sponsorship or if they alienated the vast majority of their own visitors; they are in it to screw anyone they can regardless of whether it will implode their own organization or whether their agendas would collapse the industry. Dat mission creep
Polygon fails at the one thing that is their entire existence, video games. seems every other month there's something or someone pointing out just how out of touch they are with their audience, with the industry in which they write about. I know it's hard to ignore em, and I wouldn't want people to lose their jobs, but if you pay no attention to them, they'll disappear. I don't want sound anti sjw, or like an sjw saying this but we can shut em up, we as the readers keep em afloat. n4g isn't the entirety of the internet but it's a start, boycott em.
Kotaku was kind of a lower mid-range site until gamer gate. Then they took up the cause of hating men. While their readership went down for a while during that time, they have actually quadrupled their click through rate by 4X, from about 9 million, to around 35-40 million views per month. Sadly, the advertisers care more about the views, than they do about the content of the site itself. The quality of Kotaku has decreased significantly, where once they still had decent articles from time to time, and even having some of the best interviews(which they still sometimes do), and even breaking real news, now its more about finding ways to incite clicks through baited headlines and pushing agendas which IMO aren't really the responsibility of a news site to push. They've become more of an editorial site than a news site, and its working for them, which is why nothing we complain about in regards to them will matter to the higher ups, until they say something that becomes a controversy their ownership can't ignore....which I'm honestly surprised hasn't happened after all this time given how often they insult the reader. It's not really a gaming site anymore though, it's more a weak political platform to push the views of the ineffectual social types who really don't know how to do anything more than make a fuss about stuff. I'm not trying to defend them here or anything, as I find them reprehensible, but its worth knowing the facts behind how screwed up the world is today.
The click rate increase is true. Alot of sites do it now, they use the same cookie cutter titles. 5 reasons why this is offensive, number 3 will shock you. Something does this in current year, and its problematic. Toxic in *insert media here* and why its a problem this is offensive, here's why etc It drives the clicks while requiring no effort at all to conjure up.
People who click on Polygon articles, shouldn't be allowed to use the internet anymore. Please stop giving them revenue, whether you're curious or enraged by their headlines... Just stop, and they will go away.
Yea, yea... but guys...seriously now; hAvE yuO eseen lEmnnY?!?
I always double check the link because I refuse to give poly any more clicks everything they put out is trash and somehow they can turn any game in to a political issue. I want games news not some breif information about a game and fifty reasons why only bad people like to play it and how insensitive joke X from scene 50 is in y title
Great article. There is a huge disconnect between theory and praxis for most bloggers at polygon, which translates to a disconnect between them and their audience. There needs to come a time when people stop writing about equality and start fighting for it. This would bring bloggers back to Earth.
Polygon Writer Fails... Article should have ended there, as it tells you all you need to know about Polygon writers.
I'll tell that to the author 😂
they fail to understand alot of things.
I got banned from Polygon because I said that Marvel was gonna turn Captain American into Captain Tranny and he/she would save all tranny midgets from the cruel world of hentai. Polygon is the epitome of PC culture. It's as if Disney owns them.
Omg, ahahahahahah, people who think like this author are legit brain dead
SJW pansies, the fact any corporation pays for these wimps ability to type on the internet scares me, keep these people from our games.
