The fucking first sentence:

...Super Mario Bros., finally came to the world’s most popular video game machine: the iPhone.

I'm sorry NYT, since when is the fuckin' iPhone the "world's most popular video game machine"? It's not even the world's most popular cell phone.

This is fake news.

They're pushing that narrative hard about casual gamers (ie, themselves) being the future of the industry.

all their going to do is push the core demographic out further with torrenting and emulators we'll always still play video games but they're in for a rude awakening if they expect SJWs and women to spend any money on them

A little fake news to lead into a SJW rant never hurt anyone. I hope trash like this starts hurting the NYT.

The only thing about the game that they talk about is how it fails to be socially progressive. Completely useless story.

Actually, if I had to guess, it IS the world most popular smartphone. While apple only commands what, 14% of the Smartphone market? 17%? Whatever, they release 2 phones a year, but by calling them the 'iphone' collectively, you are referring to that entire 14% (or is it 17%? really depends on who you ask) chunk. Of course, it would only be fair to compare it to the 86% chunk for android, but because of the way they phrased it, the iPhone would instead have to be compared to an individual model of phone, say the galaxy s6, and with so many phones sold, the iPhone will win any of those comparisons, simply because the android market is so, so fractured.

But wouldn't it be cultural appropriation or something to demand Japanese culture to conform to mainstream white american culture or does the world only not revolve around fucking white males?

So close...

See, it's about treating White males like shit and ruining things they like. So aas long as it targets Whitemen in a neagative way, SJW's like it.

In this way, the world is STILL CISWHITEMALE-CENTRIC! (Just 'anti-centric' or 'inverted' because it's about attacking white males.)

Thats an excellent point, especially considering the fact that Japanese game developers tend to cater to their own audience first.

It's a bit unclear. I assume you're referring to his entry in the SMB2 handbook, but if memory serves he was just a cross dresser in that, not trans. That having been said in newer games she's described at female and if that's not trans I don't know what is.

This supports the hypothesis I heard, that SJWs sit up all night fretting and freaking out that someone somewhere might be happy or enjoying something. For example, a spin off of a classic game, that doesn't suck.

Naw. They just know they can monetize shrieking "patriarchy" so they go out hunting for anything remotely popular to leech off of until they kill it and can move onto the next popular thing.
