@bold. Almost the exact same thing happened with Star Wars, where George Lucas' implication and vision was stripped, and personalities like Kathleen Kennedy and Ryan Johnson sabotaged the legacy of start wars. It is no coincidence that it also implies a badass female character was used man-shame the classic, traditional male leads. We know it's not a coincidence because these people have gone on the record to affirm this agenda. This is happening at Disney, and also at Sony, and with all the big players in Hollywood. Unfortunately it is starting to creep into games, and it's up to gamers to stand up to identity politics being injected into a creative art form in order to send subliminal messages to people. It's wrong, it should be called out and shamed.

We know that this is happening with Sony just as with Disney due to the Anonymous leaks and the e-mail messages communicated at the highest levels of management related to Ghostbusters, the all-female remake. I hope people will continue to wake up to this kind of mind control and continue to peacefully revolt, be it via social media or via underground groups.

Yeah, the parallels between the Naughty Dog situation and the LucasFilm situation are definitely noticeable. Amy Hennig is like George Lucan in alot of ways. She mentored Bruce and to a lesser degree Neil, as they worked under her on earlier Uncharted games. Likewise, Lucas mentored Kathleen Kennedy when they were working together on the Indiana Jones series. When Lucas decided to sell to Disney, he was happy that his protege Kathleen was being put in charge of LucasFilm in his absence. But quickly she showed her true colors, and set about disassembling everything that was good about Star Wars and replacing it with woke identity politics. The situation with Amy is a bit different, but basically her two proteges (Bruce and Neil) usurped control of her own IP away from her, forcing both her and her Uncharted 3/4 co-director Justin Richmond to leave the studio. 

I don't even really think the problem is Bruce. He did a great job co-directing Uncharted 2 with Amy Hennig, and Uncharted 4 was pretty good as well. And while I'm personally not a fan of TLOU 1, mainly because of the gameplay not being my cup of tea, I hear it's story was quite good. The problem seems to be Neil, not Bruce. TLOU 2 is Neil's first game directing project without Bruce, and it seems like a total shitshow from what I've read about the plot. Neil has straight up said that one of his influences is Anita Sarkessian, I can't think of a worse person to be influenced by in the gaming industry. 

With EA fucking up the Amy's projects MS would be silly not to open a studio for her. And Sony stupid if they don't give her a studio or a team of similar level of ND.
