Criticizing is no more censorship than him criticizing them. There's nothing wrong with asking, but demanding is a whole different beast, and assuming everyone who wants a female character are demanding it is to demonize the entire front. Since when is complaining censorship?


You are going to give me aneurysm.


I'm not entirely disagreeing, hence my demanding comment. Gotornck is right though, merely criticizng can lead to undue pubic pressure, but in the end, its the developers and creators who have control.


Is their fucking reasoning that pisses me off. When they try to force Nintendo to make Link a girl.


You're just pulling it our another source to apply it to the question, when the question doesn't really give any specifics. Who is criticizing?
Reasonable people? Tumblr users? I took a broad stance on it, because his answer was a bit vague, and probably target a group that may not have been the asker's intention.

I see his point if you consider larger context than just the one three-line post (which is something you realyl should do). Because yes, a lot of journalists and 'gamers' (Not really gamers per se,for the most part) do actually demand genuine censorship, related to "gender and sexism issues' in games.


Gaming sites are particularly prone to this, especially post gamergate. I can agree there.

You know what he fucking meant and what I fucking meant. Seriously you are going to really give me an aneurysm.

I swear is like you don't read half the shit a lot of sites write. People say or try to force upon others.

I was just covering my bases. I don't disagree in terms of those who demand. Although I do notice a lot of people seem to take offense at the mere suggestion, and I also think those people need to be less sensitive. Jesus Karen, calm your tits. I don't normally read those sites for those very reason, so forgive me if I am underestimating the problem.

Well, a lot of people did complain about a mod to make a black person white, and I was like "Really people? This is what you complain about?"

Game was Stardew Valley.

I tend to ignore a lot of things that aren't MMOs.

While using such a loaded term as "censorship" is a little much, I get what he is saying. I think there is a fairly strong effort to steamroll over the will of the artist by gaming press and some subsets of gamers which could arguably be considered censorship, but I will just stick with calling it presumptuous dicketry.
