I wonder if we'll ever make it to the point where CNN eventually complains about WWII games being Nazi murder simulators....
There are people who complain about Nazis getting killed in games, but they aren't at CNN. When one of the recent Wolfenstein games was released, some people felt they were being personally attacked because some of the marketing used the phrase "Make America Nazi-Free Again" in a game where you in fact, attempt to make America Nazi-free again. Similarly, the depiction of a midwestern cult in a Far Cry game got backlash from the same group of people.
I doubt many people were offended by the exact words, but more about the over the top wokeness injected into Wolfenstein II when the rest of us remember the good ol days where every one just enjoyed shooting nazis. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Father Cutscene
Maybe, just maybe you are trying too hard when you make the "Christian" father comedicly racist, smack his "jew" wife, smack his own kid around, the dog, and then make the kid kill the dog all while somehow also talking about queers.
Thus it becomes an issue when Antifa types call absolutely anyone they disagree with a Nazi, that we are no longer just talking about the Nazis we all once agreed upon.
So a video game offended you.
Sure offended as in trying so hard to be woke that the writing makes no sense even in an alternate universe. I'm offended by other shit games all the time, woke not required. I'm offended by pay2win games, yada yada
Where do you even hope for this to go?, want to play the game of OH SO YOU ARE OFFENDED every time anyone declares they don't like a part of a game?
