I believe far more democrats are more concerned with games being aligned with their beliefs then their desire to actually play them. Look no further then Twitter or Reddit.
Creatively I don’t believe a democrat is on the same level as someone politically neutral or conservative. Because from the shows I’ve watched with a left wing slant, the bad guy almost always has a combination of: seeing themselves above women, is a racist, homophobe, and oppressing a marginalized group. It’s so predictable. It makes it so painfully obvious they want you to know who the bad guy is.
A proper way to be creative is to make characters with grey area. Nuance. To be willing to offend to make a greater point, especially when it concerns their own beliefs. Those are things left wing creatives just have a harder time doing.
Are you trying to tell me that in shows with a right wing slant, someone who sees themselves above women, is a racist, homophobe and oppressing a marginalized group wouldn't be a bad guy?
Nice deflection without talking the point I said in any way. Of course those people are bad guys. I’m saying real creativity has other motivations and grey area at play.
Ill use examples of Xbox titles I know. Gears of War was created with all male soldiers. Because women were only required to have babies. Now I believe women can do what they want with their bodies but here’s the kicker, the game lore gives you a grey area. Because the human population is so low women giving birth like an assembly line was necessary to create the next generation, if humanity survived the locust war. Even in Gears 3 we had women soldiers but they were either too old or infertile, because again healthy women were needed to keep the population alive. If that program didn’t happen Gears 4 would have far fewer humans alive.
Halo, Xbox’s flagship franchise is built off the idea of kidnapped child soldiers. Who are conscripted, cloned to be given back to families, and they were surgically augmented with a 33% mortality rate to do what...kill human terrorists. While morally reprehensible the greater good would be to save the galactic economy from collapsing and the ensuing riots across human space but more importantly save the lives of millions of civilians who would no doubt be caught in the crossfire.
Thats my point. Grey area. Being offensive to have a greater point. No way a Democrat can write a premise like these, as I said they make things painfully obvious black and white
