    This has been the problem with with media beyond games, however it generally boils down to two options: the writing is so bad that things stand out more, or the writing suffered because the writers were focused on the wrong things. They don't have to be mutually exclusive, but the latter tends to happen more often than not as indicated by the writers themselves and how they act/behave/project themselves beyond their writing.

    For example, if you have a writer that makes a terrible story that has gay characters in it, then you see them tweeting rabidly about gay rights and inclusivity or even tweeting that people who hate the story just hate gay people... it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that their story suffered because they were too focused on the gay angle versus focusing on making a good story. Sure, they could suck at writing stories, but ignoring all their behavior would be remiss... and I think you'd kind of assume they were hired because they were good writers. Unfortunately, the above example actually happens, and it just doesn't just apply to writers either. You see this with actors, producers, and at varying executive levels that have some say in the final product.

    Was this the case with BL3? Who knows. However, it's not a remote possibility considering how much companies and content producers will bend over backwards to appear "woke" or whatever the trendy term is nowadays, trying to capitalize on such things (which doesn't mean they actually care about the causes either). Why is it likely the case that BL3 writing is the result of the point I've stated above or a combination of the two? Because there's tons of games/content out there that have things like gay characters (or strong women, etc.) where no one complains about or even praises the storytelling.
    “Society is endangered not by the great profligacy of a few, but by the laxity of morals amongst all.”
    “It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the 'right' to education, the 'right' to health care, the 'right' to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle.”
    ― Alexis de Tocqueville

    As far as I've gotten in game, I think someone might be a bit way too much of a reactionary and well I might of been tempted to do the same in the past but... I think there's not much too it(So far).

    Just gonna remind everyone who thinks they don’t want to push an agenda. Epic games banns people from the forum for calling Fl4k a he , despite ingame there being no indication for what he is outsite of his voice.

    If you think that’s healthy behavior, I don’t know

    I dont mind having a more "diversed" story as long as the story is good. It only bothers me when they are lazy about it. Its like they come up with this 3rd rate tales, slap a gay/trans character on it and then spect to get a syanding ovation.

    Also, I went thru something similar with all the super hero shows. They just decided to switch to sjw support last year, which is fine imo as long as the stories were good (sadly, many werent).

    The thing that feels odd is this: games, comics and super hero shows were mostly watched by dudes and it seems like the people making this thing decided they no longer wanted their audience. They then decided to target a different audience (a smaller one at that) and then wonder why ratings/sales dip.

    Tbh, as annoying as sjws can be, if the stories are good, I dont mind. Just remember that political correctness doesnt replace good writing.

    You've got 2.5k posts while trying hard to look smart on a message forum for a MMORPG in 2020, getting triggered over an accurate Nazi labeling.

    Your projection game is strong. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazism
    [Nazism] is the ideology and practices associated with the Nazi Party—officially the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP)—in Nazi Germany, and of other far-right groups with similar ideas and aims.

    I mean I couldn't quite nail down why the story seemed weaker in a few places but Ava definitely tops my list of dislikes. Yes she's a kid so some level of annoyance is expected but holy crap. She gets Maya killed and then blames Lilith and Lilith takes it as though it was her fault. And despite being twins, Sister Calypso obviously wears the pants and verbally puts down Brother Calypso so when we finally fight Brother and he started siphoning off his sister, I thought he was going to backstab her and take all the power. But no, that didn't happen.

    Just remembered that BL3 popped up on Steam recently so spoiler tags just in case.

    This thread is so full of paranoia it is really funny to read. The evil SJW mad a transgender robot and that they can't deliberatly insult the fictional character on the basis of exactly that just to show it to those evil SJWs who destroyed their beloved game which made huge amounts of $$$ nonetheless and they are still playing said games despite these horrible horrible misssteps. Also: Women.

    Uses simp. Complains about SJWs. Complains about a robot being called it.

    At least BL3 gave us one good joke in you.

Two is because I'm saving my infraction points to unleash unholy Hell when Trump wins re-election.

    I grew up watching shows with strong female leads. I enjoy it a lot but BL3 is ridiculously panderous. It's so forced and for no reason, Lilith is already a bad ass and among the best characters in the franchise. They end it with a Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys, come the hell on. The twist with Tannis on top of completely discarding Brick and Mordecai.

    OPs just bitching about SJWs which I wholeheartedly disagree with and find idiotic but you cannot deny that this game panders hard for no apparent reason.

    I complain about epic games banning people for labeling Fl4k as he, because they tweeted he is genderfluid or something, which isn’t mentioned ingame. But they still Bann people for it
