Mod Site Bans Tomb Raider Remastered Mod That Removed Content Warning

A mod that removes the content warning present in the recent Tomb Raider remaster has been banned from Nexus Mods.

Just as much of a nothing burger as people claimed the message was attempting to address. Which is it, do people have rights to create and moderate the content of their game/site or are we not about freedom of expression/speech?

Damn..Nexus Mods needs to get a competition. Their political correct stance ..sucks.

shinoff218397d ago

Then just get mods from there you don't have to pay attention to their political stances

MrDead96d ago

Have you seen the things you can download on Nexusmods? In no way is the stuff on there politically correct, they just don't like a**holes.

shinoff218396d ago

That's what i always thought.

Christopher96d ago

There's tons of places to get mods from, just NexusMods is the more centralized.

Also, hard to say they're PC considering what they allow. They just go against people who try to remove messages/content based on hate. But, they also allow people to do some very non-PC things in some mods.

Based on hate?? So not wanting propaganda in gaming is hate now? The original game didn't need that message then and it rings true today. Same as the Spiderman 2 / Starfield mods that weren't allowed because they need ppl seeing "the message" and forced acceptance.

Christopher96d ago

Based on your comment, yes, based on hate. When you call an expression of thought "propaganda", you're dog whistling hate. When you actively have to remove a developer's own creation to make you feel better? Hate.

I call it for what it is. You can act the victim. You're not one.

shinoff218395d ago

A message warning people is not pushing an agenda. I think yall to fickle. Just as ficklenas the people you complaining about. I've said it before the anti woke people are just as annoying as the woke.

***type of person that won't name drop the black thugs that shot children during the Kansas City superbowl parade***

Black thugs? WOOF! You just came out and proved yourself right off the bat. You have a lot of hatred in you that you need to deal with.

And, btw, I'm the type of person who wants them all caught and taken for court for their crimes. Same as any other criminal.

*** can tell you right now, you're on the wrong side of history, boy.***

Ok that's dumb, literally have nude mods, sex mods, and mods to enable child murder in games like fallout and Skyrim, but to take away a little warning screen and that's too much? 🙄😒

TricksterArrow96d ago (Edited 96d ago )

People cry about censorship. Developer decides to censor as little as possible from an old release, and they justify it via a note expressing their opinions and views. People decide to censor the note.

Legit.

Christopher96d ago

People just want other people to accept that they don't want to change and those others shouldn't change because they don't want to. Otherwise the usual titles and why do we as a society change over 20 years comments.

Inverno96d ago

Is it a content warning every time you boot up the collection? Cause then I can kind of understand if you don't wanna see it cause it's not really a message specifically for you. Nexus is just ran by some butthurt people though so this does not surprise me.

Christopher96d ago

You can disable it in config file on PC. No mod needed.

Tomb Raider Remastered just quietly censored one in-game detail

Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered players are ticked off by the game’s most recent patch, which censors in-game pin-up posters of Lara Croft.

This is why gaming is screwed. When people change things to fit someone’s agenda, it’s a slippery slope downhill.

Christopher33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

Even if that agenda is of the developer? Way to remove developer rights.

***One player called it a “huge problem with modern games,” saying they can now be “ruined AFTER people buy them”.***

The level of drama. Yes, I recall sitting there for more hours than I did anything else in the game. These two pinups are the core of the game, after all!

coolbeans33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

rlow1's cringe catastrophizing aside, I do think developers *ought* to strive to maintain an original work to the best of their ability. The language of a "remaster" tacitly implies that - for good or ill - what's being resold is what fans remember but better.

Profchaos33d ago

Games can be ruined after purchasing them yeah we know this not from this but from GTA IV which had half it's radio content patched out due to licensing expirations and to me that was a huge deal.

This pin up poster is a bit of nonsense but the whole argument of modern games can be ruined post launch is Absol true.

DedicatedDark33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

It's not their work to censor. They are incharge of restoration & remastering the work, not overwriting it.

Barlos33d ago

It's not the agenda of the developer though, they're pandering and trying to increase their ESG score.

Way to support censorship...

victorMaje33d ago

It’s not the end of the world for sure, but I understand the hate towards this kind of change. I believe it’s also a matter of principle.

Imagine a Picasso painting being restored & the restorer deciding there aren’t enough strokes, or some lines aren’t straight enough or curved enough…not sure it would/should sit well with people.

Have all original devs signed off on this change? Even if it’s the case, are we saying older gamers are better mentally equipped to process what was there than current gamers, hence the change?

Enough time ago the case was made that games are an art form. We’re supposed to have won that case.
So which is it? Are games art or not?

Aphrodia33d ago

And what of the rights of the buyer? The ones that purchased this game with hard earned money? They bought a product that is now being changed into a different product. Surely you would stand up for them since you are about "rights"?

Christopher33d ago

***It's not their work to censor. ***

They own the IP. It's theirs too do with as they wish.

***It's not the agenda of the developer though, they're pandering and trying to increase their ESG score. ***

You got proof of this? And even if this were true, isn't it the developer right to want whatever an ESG score is?

***from GTA IV which had half it's radio content patched out due to licensing expirations and to me that was a huge deal. ***

Licensed music is always going to get changed unless they can afford to keep paying those fees sadly.

***Imagine a Picasso painting being restored & the restorer deciding there aren’t enough strokes, or some lines aren’t straight enough or curved enough…not sure it would/should sit well with people. ***

You do know in the original that the artwork is extremely pixelated so you can't even tell what it is, right? Shouldn't we then be arguing that they increased the detail of this artwork at all then? Why the remaster? Picasso got it right already with the original.
