They should be prosecuted for abusing the DMCA system for political censorship.

The people who passed the DMCA in the first place should be barred from public office.

They went from 87% to 84% very positive ratings in total, so not really a huge blow. The real damage is the negative reviews were upvoted to most helpful and will be there for some time.

Not that the devs will care. These are "racists" who just affirmed their leftist boogeyman belief that nazis are real.

Yep, there is no victim here. Its fake outrage by a very large number of very loud people that not only define themselves based on their ideology but define people as almost charactures of racist stereotypes unable as well as unwilling to exercise self control when someone says a bad word around them just because of skin color. I know about 4-5 black people that I've met socially or by working with them, only one was actually offended by it but she couldn't describe in great detail why only that it was a word meant to cause offense. The rest were asking me if he knew the other player was black or not or if he was trying to troll someone.

It was said to be as offensive as possible, the man reached into the back of his brain and found the most offensive thing he could say to express his frustrations and that was it. He didn't go and dress himself up like some Zulu savage in blackface, or try to do his best Fu Manchu trying to target a specific people he just used the most offensive word he could think of.

They keep antagonizing half, if not more, of gamers, on top of the 60 million fans of PDP for no other reason than cheap virtue signaling that gains them nothing. Then again, I could give less of a shit about them since all they make is pretentious, badly written walking simulators.

The virtue signaling gets them career stability and advancement. See Equifax as an example of progressivism putting someone in charge of security who had a degree in Music Composition.

Virtue signaling is the replacement workplace currency for skill and ability.

For another contemporary example of how virtue signaling is replacing talent in our modern culture, see Washington Post's reporting, Rolling Stone's fire sale, or American education rankings among developed nations.

Got to be honest that I heavily enjoyed the playthrough of firewatch, was engrossed in the story and it felt like I was actually solving a mystery. That being said the game has zero replayability and does follow a very linear path.

They will care when their dream of being game developers is dead and they have to work at Starbucks.

What gets me is how they did this. To drop a score that much, you need a lot of people leaving negative reviews. Those reviews were given in the last 30 days, which implies purchases. So PDP fans bought firewatch in order to leave a negative review? That defeats the whole point.

The only other explanation is that a lot of people already had the game but never left a review, and suddenly decided to do so after this whole debacle. Which is more plausible I suppose, but the devs still have all their money.

You can buy, then review and refund. Usually. If you refund in 2 hours of play or less.

Shooting themselves in the foot, really. Then again, I can already see the butthurt "game journalist" white knights and their indignant articles about people other than them being allowed to judge a game. Maybe it'll even get Firewatch a however small spike in sales from people who want to virtue-signal with it.

I think there's finally the shift that i've been waiting for. From PC to fuck you go back to your country if you dont like it. I love it. The hypocrisy of the left comes out all day everyday and people are seeing it.

It's why you put a bullet in Marxists. They are incapable of learning and killing them is a mercy.
