Within reason of course. (Or not if you have stories to tell). For example I recently spent four or so hours with Guild wars 2 and almost bought the expansion for 54 euro before realizing there was a free base game, I also spent a few hours watching the expansion in Lets plays and ultimately decided the game isn't for me while I have Monster hunter, Warframe and FF14 installed on ps4 and my laptop. The reason here should be obvious to anyone who keeps up with gaming news. I will also be boycotting any title or studio that Jessica Price is attached to in future whether they make the God of games or not.
Another is farcry 5, which I still have bought but do intend on buying as it looks fun and on top of that I get to support the principle that it is olay to have middle american characters in a game and for that game to satire the current political landscape. As soon as I'm done with Shadow warrior 2 this ones a buy which I doubt I would have thought much about had people not vilified it.
There are a few others along with TV shows and movies I have supported and boycotted based on this, within reason of wether I would like the IP to being with. Of course I'm not going to buy Guild wars 2 if I don't like the game but the want to support the devs for protecting the community is a strong monivator nor am I going to boycott Mass effect andromeda because of Manveer Heir comments if the rest of the team came out and disagreed, they managed to override counteract his racism or he was fired.
The list could go on bit I'm just giving examples here as I'm more interested in whether or not your purchasing decisions are effected by examples like this and do you use your wallet to vote on the direction of future game development and the politics within? Could you in good conscience support Jessica Prices future games based on her bahaviour and how it would effect other developers based on their gender?
