Chakyash: That was my whole point. Since english isn't my main language, you explained it better what I wanted to say overall. I apologize if it looked like I'm lumping you in one of other factions (left vs right) . But I do avoid games where their selling point or advertising is centered towards pushing one narrative .
Not a problem...and it's good to see we have found some common ground.

Good example of narrative/belief pushing include: Bioshock(series)......you could either side with the narrative given by the big bad guys/gals or not, and believe as you chose while not being told what to think. Great games for this good example of using beliefs in media and also good overall(imo) despite how easy they can be compared to what came before.

You'll be arrested and shot.

KentGAllard: And this kind of idiocy is why people don't like the west: the tendency to overexagerrate to the point of absolute absurdity while being insufferably smug about it.
Totally, it's not like people get thrown in jail there for expressing an opinion.

Emob78: Or in TinyE-land, in which case you'll be pumped full of estrogen and forced to watch endless hours of Bob Ross painting videos.

tinyE: Bob Ross was a Master Sergeant in the USAF.

What rank are you? :D
Apparantly he also has an awesome cereal

Senior NCO Dickhead of the GOG forum brigade. This is my rifle, this is my gun. One is for fighting, the other's for fun.

And did you just appropriate Bob Ross's military identity? Shame shame. You have clearly over-stated your forum privilege and shall now post no less than 20 Twitter posts apologizing for your social snafu.

If anyone who's expressed a "wrong" opinion got thrown in jail out here, there'd be nobody left to guard that jail.

I could tell you things about your own government that would make your skin crawl, so get off your high horse.
Edit because of politics.

DadJoke007: Exactly. Russia has done and does things that make my skin crawl, but in contrast to the United States, Russia is starting to look like Mother Teresa.

There are things I like about both countries though, especially USA, but man is it dirty behind the scenes. And that's what the public knows about.
Agreed!

Hal900x: I'm seeing threads around the interverse claiming games are being rejected based on the politics of their devs/authors. I've had my differences with Cleve, but rejecting Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar is nothing short of retarded. If there is a game in existence that fits GoG, it's this game. Regardless of your political ideology (and if you have one, you are ignorant), we should agree that art can be independent from it's creator. If you have to agree with every creator then you are losing a universe of incredible works. That, and the practical fact that you lose half your customers when you choose a "side" (and again, if you have a "side" you suffer from ignorance). Can you imagine if I had to agree with Dali? The guy was an utter scumbag, but modern surrealism is awesome.
In the past few years, we’ve seen repeated examples of the quasi-political game. just like Far Cry 5

LootHunter: And if you are straight guy with a girl, some guys can go and say that you are not good enough and punch you in the face, and then approach the girl in agressive way.

Gay people are not the only ones who can become victims.
avatar
hedwards: Of course not, but in that scenario, it's not the guy's sexual orientation that was the issue. And even if it was, that's an unusual thing to occur. It would be serious and should be taken seriously, but it's intellectually dishonest to equate those two possibilities.
Why? In both cases people are attacked on the basis of their choice of sexual partner. And attackers considering that choice inappropriate.

avatar
hedwards: Also, Russia has a terrible record on LGBTQ rights.
Oh, really? Are you refferring to "gay concentation camps" article that was published on April 1st in a yellow newspaper? Or maybe it's "children protection law" that has been critisized for a lot of aspects in Russia itself, but all that's bothering west media is that it could affect attitude towards LGBTQ+- people?

KentGAllard: So "could you please shut up if you disagree with us on anything"?

That's funny, since the progressive side are the ones that quickly label anyone who disagrees with them in any fashion every vile thing under the sun.
avatar
qwixter: That may be true or not. Separate issue. I haveonly read a couple of posts where my statement might be false. Generally speaking, the general usage for SJW follows the pattern, "Someone added something I disagree with into a game (or whatever), and it's the SJWs fault". Always a nice /facepalm moment.
Well, by that definition, nazi is a childish term/acronym that idiots use to describe someone that they disagree with.

And how is it different in Russia from UK, exactly?
avatar
Chakyash: Or maybe other people here could AVOID complaining about SJWs everytime a female or whatever character appears in games.
Gee. How many people complained about Resident Evil? Tomb Rider? Bayonetta? Oh, wait...

avatar
Chakyash: you can follow your own advice , metaphor and AVOID such games instead being a gaming justice warrior and let people that want to play such games to play them?
And how exactly I could know that a new installment of Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, or other franchise I watch/read/play on regular basis is going SJW?
