Yes, my political affiliation and religion do affect my buying habits for sure. If a game can be seen as anti-Christian I usually skip it. Likewise, if a developer goes too politically correct and forces in an overly diverse cast, especially in a context where it doesn't make sense, such as the recent Battlefield V controversy, I skip it. My love of Wolfenstein has also diminished considerably since Machine Games decided to get overly politically correct with the series, I heard alot of bad things about Wolfenstein II so I skipped it, and now it seems like they're doubling down on political correctness, the recently announced Wolfenstein Youngblood has 2 butch looking female characters as leads, so I will probably skip it as well. For awhile Bioware's LGBT push turned me off, the character Zevran in Dragon Age Origins was so overtly gay and pushy (I got unwelcomed sexual advances from him the whole game) that it turned me off of their games until Dragon Age Inquisition released, thankfully though they seem to have learned their lesson, LGBT relationships were completely optional in Inquisition, no characters tried to throw themselves at you like Zevran did in DA Origins. I am also proud of any developer who openly fights against political correctness, such as Warhorse Studios, who stood tall in spite of criticism from the left about the game not having dark skinned characters, even though having white characters in a medieval game is historically accurate.
As far as the developer's political opinions go, I usually don't mind what opinions they hold as long as they don't let it affect their games. Most game developers fortunately have the sense to not get overly political with their games, and that is as it should be. I will say this though, I might just boycott any developer who hires the recently fired Jessica Price, her misandry is just as unwelcome in this world as misogyny is.
Amen. I agree with every word.
It's hard to boycot the very best games that one really wants to play, but games I really don't must have, that are too much propaganda for a progressive/multikulti/leftist/SJW society I do boycot. Like Firewatch, Battelfield 5, Wolfenstien.
I also refuse to buy Bioware games at full price anymore. Although it doesn't matter since Bioware was forced by EA to go for the dull open world "I-want-to-be-the-next-The-Division-and-Destiny" micro-transaction games-as-a-service strategy anyway.
