I remember in the early days of United States Space Force Pew Pew shirt the popular opposition argument was “Nobody is trying to take away your video games.” They kept insisting and I knew that argument was bullshit. Never believed it for a second. Of course, they were going to come after our video games. And by now they’ve done it many times. They’ve abandoned all pretense. They are in the business of deciding which games get released. The biggest issue for me is not the tabooization of erotic/risqué content and sexual themes (I can get that from other media if I want),

it’s that the entire gaming industry has become a hive mind composed of nodes of ball-less design and woke writing that just move around from one studio to other. Even the genres that you’d think would be the most resilient like FPS shooters and series and lately, even gory fighting games have been infected (just look at the MK11 design/costume fiasco and its woke ending). Designing a game to appeal to male power fantasy is now a VERY bad thing. Toxic masculinity yadda yadda yadda. The only United States Space Force Pew Pew shirt game (big budget and a marketing campaign) in recent memory which still has that “masculine power fantasy” quality and unapologetic design is Doom and Doom Eternal… and we’ll see how long will ID last, because I can absolutely guarantee that there’s pressure to reduce some of those elements (as with everything,

The leftist’s identitarians infiltrate an organization like cancer and it’s a slow death from there) and reduce elements parodizing weakness in its writing United States Space Force Pew Pew shirt. Can you imagine a game like Soldier of Fortune getting an AAA release in the current climate? No way, no one would fund it. Doom gets away with it SO FAR because of the brand’s legacy and demonic enemies, but for how long… I’ll just stop buying and playing new games if they do that. I can play my old games until they sober up. And if they never sober up. I can play old games forever. There’s still plenty of old games I’ve never played. Look at it this way, no need for hardware upgrades. Horseshoe Theory. Both the far right and far left agree on things like sex is evil and commoners shouldn’t be allowed to read books/watch movies/play games/etc they don’t agree with. It may be for different reasons, but the end result is the same: authoritarians are authoritarians.
