    If you say that someone only plays Western games because they think other games are problematic, then that implies that she thinks that the writer finds eastern games (mainly japanese games) to be problematic. She also then goes on to mention 3 JRPGs.

    It's not projecting, it's reading comprehension...

    He was complaining about booth babes which are appearntly sexist but "yass queen get yo bag from onlyfans" is fine. Game journos are beyond cringe

    I mean, there's a nuanced difference between someone deciding to sell their body themselves, and companies trying to profit off of using someone's looks to promote their game when it has nothing to do with the game.

    ....what? Those two are not remotely comparable. Also, once again you're projecting because nothing in the article implies the author's opinions on onlyfans girls.

    Also what Jester said.

    It's not projecting, it's reading comprehension...
    "nothing but garbage western games" doesn't exclude all the non-garbage western games or any other kind of geographical source of games you might want to employ.

    You jumped straight to eastern games to make some kind of ridiculous gotcha reply and call the other poster cringe

    So yes, reading comprehension.. Yours though.

    Being a booth babe was a decison or do you think companies just kidnapped women and forced them to be there with no pay?

    I didn't say that, I'm saying it's scummy behavior. And I wouldn't rule out exactly pressure from a company to get their workers to do it in some cases.

    For the record, the article is ass, but bringing random SJW complaints into it is fucking weird.

    This. There's plenty of issues with the article overall, but SJW wasn't one that crossed my mind.

    Although even weirder that it managed to somehow catch the attention of someone who's literally never posted in this thread until this topic.

    You mean an industry whose the primary audience is 18-24 year old males use women to promote their products who were hired from a modeling agency and get decent pay is bad but the 95% of women who struggle on onlyfans and are at the mercy of an ever changing tos and are usually fucked over by fees is good?

    Growing up, i just ignored booth babes because i knew it was just a gig for them and didnt cry about it because i wasnt going to mess with their abilities to get more gigs :^)

    Sure but it's still a good game that's worth playing if you're a fan and have already played 4.

    Considering the stories are irrelevant and all the characters are tropes, not really. Just play 4 again if you have the itch and save the money. There is enough unique content in 4S that I highly doubt any sane gamer who hasn't spent 500 hours with it has seen it all anyways. If it was $30 it might be a different story but its $50 lmao.

    I don't even know if I ever posted in this thread or if you're talking about me but I read it all the time.

    Usually I see a bunch of posters ganging up on VideoGames and this time it didn't make any sense and I kinda agree with him on the whole thing.

    Most of the time people come out and say video games are getting boring is simply because they're swimming around on an tiny ass aquarium floating on an ocean.

    Nah, its calling out hypocracy. Trade shows with boothbabes were infinitely better than they are now. It was a dream of mine to go to e3, sdcc, pax etc but now trade shows are so sanitised and boring id never want to go to one.

    Funny considering hes calling modern games boring. There couldnt be a correlation with the industry becoming more sanitised and boring and games becoming more boring... could there?!

    It's not hypocritical though. You've only pointed out the flaws of only fans, not that they're the same.

    Which is a point you brought up anyway, no one else was talking about or giving their opinions on only fans, you just seem to have a grudge against it.

    It's a strawman, that's what it is

    He's complaining gaming got terrible from 2017 onawards. Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 came out in 2016. Everything checks out, this man is a closet coomer.

    Hue, but actually i thought games between 2007-2016 were awful with a few exceptions. Since janurary 2017 on the day that re7, berseria, yakuza 0 and 2.8 came out, i feel we're in a silver age of gaming. If western games could go back to being good, that'd be great
