@mogan: I suppose so, but wonder if it's a viable strategy that you could continue using long-term. I think eventually people which just get sick of it and start ignoring these articles too.

@mogan: This comment says it all, it's not a good thing to have to resort to such nonsense every time just to up the traffic a little.

@tmthywtsn: The truth is that you need to look at the complete picture before yelling prejudice. If the complete picture shows what you believe it is showing then you can come with some proof and we can have a civil discussion about it. The problem is that when you do look at the picture as a whole it's damn hard to come across prejudice towards people of colour when you look at Nintendo's villains. Ganondorf is in fact, the only dark-skinned villain in the entire line-up of Nintendo villains. The point you are making is therefore invalid unless of course, you would like to claim that villains cannot have dark skin, which in itself would be racist. Also good to know is that the Ganondorf/Ganon character is widely celebrated as being one of the best villains in the video game industry and received overwhelmingly positively across the industry. I don't know if you are trying to be serious or just trolling but hope it's the second.

@mattock1987: I gave Journey a 10. It was an amazing experience.

@tmthywtsn: O god, did someone give a presentation on video-game characters and prejudices in your humanities course?

@mogan: Just got on the train too late - instead of innovating and also moving to mentioned platforms and making that their priority they still rely on an old-fashioned website and their users to generate income and because of this they have to churn out articles like this just so they can make the top of a Google search. It's the definition of clickbait. Shoulda, coulda, woulda, but still it's not like GS didn't see this coming years ago.

@mogan: Maybe some folks don't take too kindly to being compared to the maniacs that stormed the capitol because of choosing to go a renegade path in ME.

@Pwnslaught:

"Mass Effect's treatment of everyone who's not military or in agreement with you makes those ideas feel disingenuous because as much as it seems to care about unity and diversity, it doesn't express any trust in other people. And in the era of QAnon, the US capitol riot, and ongoing lies about the rigging of the 2020 US presidential election, Shepard's side feels like the wrong side to be on."

So, I will repeat the question - seeing as the game is so intertwined with today's US politics all of a sudden (according to the author of this article) am I supposed to feel bad for liking to play as Shepard...

It is literally there, so either you cannot read, or you have not read the article completely.

Also, while we are at it, care to explain in your words what you think the point of the article is exactly?

@thrakhrom: Yes, and this was a swing and a miss. The writer completely misunderstood ME and its politics and the comparison to US politics makes no sense. It's published purely to push the progressive agenda and its hate bait at its best. Basically what GS is now known for, grabbing games making political statements about them, and waiting for the comments to come in. Also, if you allow a fictional story of a fictional character to become a driver in your life in such a way that it makes you storm the capitol building then you have some real critical thinking to do. This is basically what is suggested in the article here and it's simply not true.

I am fine with analyzing material - but at the least, the material in question should be at some sort of credible level. ME is a game, and while it's a great one, it shouldn't form the basis of a political discussion. Especially not in the way it's being done here. But that's just my opinion.
