It doesn't take much to get people riled up. The next thing folks know, there's outrage over some gameplay element, design decision, or character. Here are ten times a big deal was made over the silliest sorts of things in games.
Forgot the whole 'RE5 is racist" because you have a white character killing black zombies in a country mostly populated by black people.
Omg, that was really a thing? I played it at the time and it didn't ring my bell at all xD
Unfortunately, yes. https://www.livescience.com... Its important to take story context into perspective here. The Umbrella Corporation is taking advantage of the impoverished people of Africa, by performing experiments on them, far away from the eyes of 24/7 newscasters. Given the context, the game makes sense.
Oh yeah, I remember now. There was a movement called 'black zombies lives matter'.
Not on the article because this writer would clearly have agreed with the stance that RE5 is racist, it's pretty obvious by the choice of controversies / words.
The very first example just shoes how retarded the author is.
Yeah I looked at the authors picture, and that says everything I need to know about him.
This is sadly now a requirement for being a game journo these days.
Calls people retarded for having an opinion and confuses shoes for shows 🙄
It's called a misspelling
What's the problem Kyle, got some sand in your vagina?
For me it’s Battlefield 5’s women. Is it really that big of a deal to have both genders represented in a game AND are not forced to play as a female
I’m not sure it was simply being able to play as a woman per say, but rather (or at least also) the historical revisionism in the story mode, going a bit overboard with the charter design, censoring words and phrases in chat based on race and historical groups. Oh and that whole don’t like it don’t buy it fiasco. Actually, you could probably find at least ten controversies just with Battlefield 5 : P
Ugh multi page article no thanks
Jax ending in MK11 was one of the dumbest controversies. People were mad over a non-canon ending.
Yeah, I was wondering what kind of person would get so triggered over that. So stupid.
Wow, this article sucks.
This article is garbage. It's clear that the writer has an agenda to push.
How come I have never heard about some of the stories on the top 10 list? - The Cup Head thing - Doom offensive jokes - Fallout 76 How about these instead. Mass Effect 2 romances scene that was described as porn by tv media. Overwatch's Buttgate. Night trap Infamous shower scene Resident Evil 5 racism
I'm so damn tired of hearing about race and gender.
I had to reply to that article because most of it is ridiculous. People that want to continue to deflect are only hurting themselves. I understand that the internet can get crazy about certain topics, but they usually have a goal to their madness. When many of us hear that SE has an ethics department, we get very worried. It personally bothers me also that Blizzard had to make some crack about owning a phone because many mobile games become cash-grabs.
