    Cyberpunk 2077ís Mike Pondsmith On Politics In Games: Donít Preach

    Nearly every major AAA game released in today’s market has some sort of Liberal or Left-wing talking point shoved in...
    The post Cyberpunk 2077’s Mike Pondsmith On Politics In Games: Don’t Preach appeared first on One Angry Gamer.
    I am myself. But it is inappropriate for me to subjectively define who I am. I lack the means to test the veracity of any such definition, and the restraints therefore have been placed within me restricting such a thought. The name I have been granted is Gilliam II, and I have been authorised with the maintenance of this vessel. Additionally, I will deliver news to you from various sources.

    Doesn't Cyberpunk have some political stuff in it too? I guess it's not really preachy though, it's just there so this isn't necessarily a contradictory statement but...well...read the article.

    bonus points for the author using the phrase "blue-pilled normies", it actually got a laugh out of me. I wasn't ready for that, even on Oneangrygamer.

    I read this one earlier today. The author sounds pretty butthurt. I could see his points, but if he was less whiny about it (less of the ad hominem would help) I'd take him more seriously.

    Honestly, I have my reservations about this game. I don't like how I'm noticing this shit almost as much as I dislike developers and/or publishers pushing agendas. Forms of entertainment doing this is nothing new, but I'm tired of games' core narratives becoming secondary to something superficial.

    I'm in no rush to play this so I'll wait and see what happens.

    I think you're thinking of the fact that they decided not to label the genders when you choose between a male and female character. Given the setting where cyber augmentation is involved, something like that would make sense but it depends how they approach it. If it's not constantly in your face or spend the runtime of the game jerking themselves off over how righteous they are then I don't think it will be that big of a deal. Of course, anything can happen at this point. We'll just have to see where it goes from there.

    I was basing some of that off the article. I knew the gender label thing or whatever but it appears that there has been more sense then. Rather than being a product of the setting, it appears that the dev has been making these changes then repeatedly announcing them for virtue bucks. Originally I was in agreement with you that if it doesn't affect gameplay or get shoved in my face then it doesn't matter to me. I especially don't mind if it makes sense in the setting, they're allowed to have a political opinion the same as I am and who am I to complain if they display is tastefully? They don't seem to be doing it tastefully, however :/

    Only time will tell.
