What's that story bitching about? I've read it twice and I'm still not sure what they are butthurt about. The general feeling I get is they don't want my money...which is fine, I'll keep my money. It is mine after all.

It's telling you not to buy Battlefield V and not to read Polygon.

The latest battlefield WW2 game has a bunch of female front-line characters in it, so a lot of gamers are calling bullshit. The gaming press and EA are calling them misogynists and whining about them not wanting to buy the game.

Just watched the trailer. Maybe a couple of women characters would be okay. But the chick is kicking everybody's ass.

Just looks retarded.

If they wanted female front line soldiers why not have a Soviet Vs Germany WW2 battlefield game.

It's like they're school yard bullies telling you to give them your lunch money. Fucking precious - especially from the "anti-bullying" crowd.

No. I don't have to spend my money on a historically inaccurate game full of SJW propaganda, and lap it up like a good little dog. I will not say "One-armed trannies in WW2 beating people to death with a studded club ON THE BATTLEFIELD WITH BULLETS FLYING AROUND AND BOMBS EXPLODING is COMPLETELY what happened!". Nor will I pretend IT is a woman.

Battlefield Vagina is an SJW power fantasy - much like Wolfenstein 2 was.

If you were a woman in WWII statistically speaking you were most likely raped.

I can't wait for the expansion pack that lets you play a Red Army solider making his way into Germany raping German women AND CHILDREN to DEATH in the millions.

...these games market themselves on being realistic, yes?

Its Gamergate. A couple of years ago the SJW wanted women, disabled and blacks in everything so Battlefield V stars a disabled woman. This required a lot of work by the developers. As predicted by Gamergate the SJW will still not buy the game. Where as EA's traditional audience is annoyed by the extremely stupid changes so sales are down. The article was probably written by a SJW.

That is what amazes me in a capitalist market, the market decides what it wants. When you try to force a narrative that is unpopular people simply choose not to buy it. The bigger question is why are these studios able to peruse wildly unpopular directions, and lose an amazing amount of money. The #1 responsibility of any employee is to the companies share holders. And the share holders need to hold the elected boards, and executive team responsible for these outrageous and expensive virtue signalling attempts.

Is that what Gamergate was about? I thought it was about jiggle physics and shit...
