This thread is the definition of toxic gaming culture. Day 1 for GTA 6
Some of you make me feel ashamed to be here
Well thats what the leak says
"Now watch this game have worse gameplay and dated controls and then get 95+ on metacritic."Eh fucking vice City again...
Does this fucking company have any creativity at all. Now watch this game have the exact same gameplay and dated controls and then get 95+ on metacritic.
They will gladly follow the LBGT agenda if it means earning profit.
I think it was a fun DLC too, but...how the fuck would you know what is "forced" or not? I've read this tons of times and laughed a bit when I'd read shit like the character being a female is forced, when GTA had female characters before and this or that is forced, ohhhh but ONLY with this game, lets ignore the past ones where such things occurred?
nahhhh you guys need to fucking objectively come up with what is or isn't "forced" instead of this funny ass guessing game as using this loose logic, anything can be argued is "Forced", which even then is a odd thing to say as do we have footage of someone putting a gun to a developer to make that character or storyline?
So lets say I tell you Gay Tony was FORCED, how the fuck would one prove that? actually give facts on this one lol So even though I agree that I don't see anything to argue it was forced in some game or something, I also feel the weird logic of trying to cherry pick that is funny as hell as the same argument literally can be made about any damn game.
Arthur Morgan in RDR2, his character is forced...want to know how?
I mean, can we say he made fun of everyone including his gender and didn't pick sides? hmmmmmm sounds like a forced right wing agenda to me and he better make fun of a side for us to figure this one out. Only way I'm buying that game btw /s
Unless someone is reading someone else mind or has footage of a gun being put to a developers back being forced to add something in, maybe we should be playing games based on what they are making vs what we believe they openly did or didn't do with some "force".
The next game is going to be built focused on GTA Online anyways.
Whatever story they come up with will be without the talent that ran this franchise and will be a corporate safe and toned down afterthought to check a box. GTA V didn’t receive a single piece of story content the whole time it was out so they don’t care about those players.
Having a gay character or colored people in a game is not woke. That's normal life.GTA is such a strange series. To claim that it's somehow losing what made it GTA is odd. GTA's bread and butter isn't being non-woke or anything like that. GTA's bread and butter is violence and mayhem. Everything else is kind of variable depending on the title. The early games had a lot of silly humor that doesn't really translate well with more realistic graphics and much of it was lost when we got to GTAIV.
I guess my point is that in this post-gamer-gate world, with volumes turned up, it's easy to forget that GTA has always been pretty firmly woke. The irreverence has been toned down for a while now and the bread and butter, the mayhem and violence, is still front and center. This new title, unless it's less violent or chaotic, will not move the needle much in any regard.
- GTAIV plays things far more seriously than previous titles and, if it had been made today, would get all sorts of "woke" comments. It's an anti-war anti-revenge immigrant story that essentially punishes Niko for choosing his destructive life of crime.
- Lost and the Damned is dour and serious as hell. None of that trademark silliness.
- Ballad of Gay Tony is a title that brought back a lot of silliness but also featured a latino protagonist and his homosexual father figure. It don't get much more woke than that, amirite?
- Then we get to GTA V which keeps a lot of the craziness, but also has a multi-ethnic trio and gets to offload a lot of it's nastiness behind a character that it presents to us as being deranged.
Most people forgot the first game existed at this point or were never aware of it in the first place.I guess everyone just forgot the first game had female protags?
With that said, it’s usually men.Even though Grand Theft Auto games have never been my type of game, I'm sure this entry will more than please fans of the series. It doesn't hurt the game to make one of the playable characters a chick, especially if you get to choose between playing as either the Bonnie or Clyde character. And besides, women and all the other genders in the world can be ruthless criminals, same as men.
They left GAF for Resetera, got banned from Resetera, then came crawling back to GAF, having learned nothing from their Resetera experience.ITT
A lot of people who seemingly hate GAF and “most posters”, but still keep their account.
Feel free to head out.
* This isn’t commentary on the game itself, as I don’t play GTA. Just saying that I’m tired of seeing the same edge lords talk about their dislike for GAF. Make like a fetus and head out.
Jason Schrier published an article talking about the work culture at Rockstar Games 4 years ago. This Bloomberg article (written by Jason, of course) is basically Jason tooting his own horn as the reason for the "public controversy."Anyone know what this was?
