well done to them...this game evolved to be universally recognised AAA megahit that completely corresponds to the quality of the game ..(in contrary to other that have been pushed as "critical hits" with every possible mean)

This is too cool. I imagine they have driven up interest to visit the island.

"so I cannot thank them enough for telling our story with such phenomenal graphics and profound stories"

"Thanks to the two of them, Sucker Punch Productions, and SIE, I have heard from people all over the world who have learned about Tsushima through their works, and now want to see, know, and go to Tsushima"

This is amazing considering the guy at DigitallyDownloaded wrote an entire thesis on how it was it was culturally insensitive, to this day one of the weirdest reviews I've ever read.

Imagine being offended on behalf of people you don't know the 1st thing about.

I don't know how you see him as lib when is clear just someone's stupid opinion.

@atticus
When a gaming journo is bitching about cultural insensitivity they are a white lib 9 times out of 10. It’s like an actor in Hollywood bitching about anything cultural it’s a white lib 9.5 times out of ten. That’s just the makeup of the field.

If you are a lib I wasn’t talking about you or all libs. I’m talking about game journos and their useless blathering. I’m way beyond the “left vs right” political illusion nonsense.

Goes to show you how stupid our society has become. I’m waiting for the day people have enough of this bull sh*t and create a counter culture to it.

Shiore2u37d ago

It's existed for a long time already, even predating this, it's just been demonized like everything else.

jznrpg37d ago

The problem will be the counterculture will go way too far the other way . Balance in all things is good

i guess im the only one who remember the conservative housewives in the 90's believing any game with blood or cursing would taint little jimmy's soul
It's nothing new. Political nutjobs tend to ruin stuff for normal people often

Left a comment on that review but got banned lol. The author/owner is one sensitive fella, his website's comments section are always echo chambers, there is no place for different opinions. Oh, and he's a pathetic weeb too.

Agreed, ever since playing the game ive been fascinated with the history of Tsushima, Samurai's, Mongolian Empire and just history in general. The game is absolutely brilliant 👏 👏👏

Silly gameAr37d ago

Wanted any excuse to drop a few points off the game.

Really hope their next 'Ghost' game will also take place in Japan, perhaps different era, different location (personally hoping for Shikoku Island).

NecrumOddBoy38d ago

I figured they would explore Hakata wars next but then start a big opening on Iki island. If they continue the Mongol invasion storylines.

What would be really cool is if they move on is an opening scene played on the island of Iki; But just as historical telling of the Ghost and the game pans out to an elder telling this story to younger children. And then we can move ahead to other tales of Japan in a later era with more weapons like guns. Could add some more diversity to the combat.

Anything they do though... it’s a day one for me. Ghost was fantastic.

Kilua38d ago

Im so happy ghost of tsushima did well. This is the ultimate form of recognition, more so than any award. Great work guys
