Critics said the raised fist evoked Black Lives Matter and cast the organization as villains
I think the raised fist is a Marxist symbol. Which the official organization called BLM seems to be involved with.
So these people saying that it cast BLM as villains were actual supporters or just 4chan trolls?
Ubisoft made Farcry 5 that paints right wing ideologies as terrorism/evil but doesn’t want to portray a left wing ideology in a negative light because the rioters are what??? Noble? For the sake of fairness, living in cancel culture, and hypocrisy... it’s all fiction people. Also, Farcry 6 stars a non-Hispanic actor playing a stereotype of Latin crime lord... so... Pick and choose your wokeness, Ubi.
You have to ask yourself why they single out one side and not the other. Is it because one side has a history of looting stores and burning cars and one side doesn’t? Is it just Ubi looking to go along with the latest trend even though it isn’t the majority idea (squeaky wheel gets the grease)
And the "one side that doesn't", is driving vehicles into people, macing and paintballing them from their vehicles and police let them go (while stopping the vehicles of volunteers with food and supplies like a church vehicle a few days ago - https://wkow.com/2020/08/28... )... Hell, 2 people get shot to death and a 3rd is sent to the hospital, and the cops just let the perp walk right by, while the police chief says he hasn't seen anything... Right wing extremists have killed over 331 since '94... https://www.businessinsider... It's not a trend for them, it's the norm.
One side doesn't???? Don't forget history
rdgneoz3, sounds like you are ok with BLM/Antifa shooting someone in a MAGA hat in cold blood because it is MAGA hunting season, right? You condone the shooting in Portland by your Antifa buddies?
Right wing ideology is basically Let's hate anyone that isn't white so yeah.
That supposed to be an insult? lol
Clearly all I needed.
Zeref that's a lie.
Interesting. What right wing ideology was painted as terrorism/evil in Farcry 5? I know some only tune in once people riot and then have the audacity to wonder why people riot (something even the pacifist MLK understood 6 decades ago), but people need to learn their history when it comes to that symbol and the narrative Ubisoft was perpetuating. The symbol has been around for decades. Attempts to invalidate the authenticity of Black grievances and undermine the agency of Black people by suggesting Black people are under the sway of some nefarious cabal are even older and a tactic that has been used by both liberals and conservatives in the past and recently.
***Ubisoft made Farcry 5 that paints right wing ideologies as terrorism/evil but doesn’t want to portray a left wing ideology in a negative light because the rioters are what??? Noble?*** The fact that you would see the villain in FC5 as a right wing ideologist should be the issue here,
Just FYI, here's your right wing ideologist: "ruthless megalomaniac who is the founder and the leader of the Hope County-based extremist religious terrorist cult organization" "Eden's Gate has used both coercion and violence to bring the existing residents of Hope County into its cult" "Seed truly believes that he was chosen by God and that he was told of the coming end of the world. His goal is to protect his followers, or "children" from the coming end and lead them to "Eden's gate."" "Joseph is shown to be a psychopath, having no problem killing, torturing and looting to advance his project." Did anyone arguing this actually play the game?

@NecrumOddBoy: And games media doesn't ever mislead people with clickbait opinion pieces that aren't accurate? Doesn't change that the guy is not an example of the right wing ideologies. If you take your info from blogs, then that's on you. If you played the game, then it would be clear that this is a cult in the sense of many others that have nothing to do with the conservative or evangelical groups. That's like saying Santa Muerte is the same as the Roman Catholic Church.
Lol you don't need to "paint" right wing ideology as terrorism. That shit painted itself. Trying to compare those fuckers with BLM is like apples and oranges. 99% of the BLM movement is a reaction to centuries of racism. 1% is a bunch of fools causing trouble. 99% of far right history is racism that caused all the problems in the first place. Nice try twisting reality, though...
They're not ready for this conversation.
Dumb asses. Oh hey Capcom, this might be on your list to: https://www.youtube.com/wat... That Street Fighter II intro. I won't be surprised if the shit bags at Capcom alter it.
It was altered way back for the Mega Drive version
Das waycis doe.
The point of that mobile game shoots itself in the foot. The story is "corruption and endless war have forced the masses to overthrow their greedy and crooked governments. Now the governments have responded by sending death squads to snuff out political dissent." Ubisoft is so blind that they couldn't find water in the ocean.
strange times we live in right now.
Well, I am sure there will be sensible discussions in this comments section 🙄
i mean maybe if people werent allowed to simply abuse the report system to "silence" anyone with opposing opinions
Exactly. Which is why articles like this shouldn’t be approved on this site regardless of whether they are related to gaming or not.
I give it a few hours before this thread is closed by N4g mods. Honestly though lots of organizations trying to seek power use the raised fist, from marxist orgs, to Fascist regimes , to the more recent Black Lives Matter Inc.
Wow. How stupid is this? Only the most ignorant of people would consider that a sign of being a villian. Terrible times we live in.
I was expecting this comment section to be flooded with support for Ubi's about face from all the people who object to having an agenda shoved down their throats when a game features homosexuality, women, or non-White characters. I'm lying. No I wasn't.
UBISOFT We stand in solidarity with Black team members, players, and the Black community. We are making a $100,000 contribution to the NAACP and Black Lives Matter and encourage those who are able to, to donate.
Ubisoft has gone full retard. What a bunch of woke asshats.
Why is any post calling BLM out for being a violent self proclaimed marixst organization being banned? That's called censorship and it's wrong. Funny though how little criticism leftiss can take before trying to shut down all the wrong think. Some might call it fascism and you censor police are the brownshirts.
Funny how an article stating that SuperGiant was robbed during riots back in June got banned without EVER stating anything political. This though. This, is blatantly political, yet is not reported or banned. Things that make you go hmm.
agreed, it will probably get locked soon and unapproved, if not its pretty hypocritical of n4g.
Critics that will never play this game
The raised fist is synonymous with revolution or a hoo rah moment. This attachment to BLM shouldn't suddenly be it's only use in history and media.
Stop doing stupid stuff like this, leave the stupid fist in the game. The two people that cared about this has now expanded because you made it an issue. Just stop this nonsense. Just to add to the fire here, any race that think they are all powerful are the enemy.
if we cry like a bunch of babies can we get it back?
Yes, let us not start making a Tom Clancy game political.
