The blowback against being politically correct has always entertained me. All I see in these discussions is "Maybe we should be more conscientious of minorities and the underprivileged. Maybe we should stop pushing a narrative where only white men have power and strength. Maybe we shouldn't needlessly sexualized people or objectify them" get met with 'fuck off with your PC culture! STOP PUSHING YOUR SJW AGENDA!"
Like, dude, if you think it's a bad thing that the world has collectively agreed that bigotry and sexism and various other offensive nonsense is bad, then you're part of the problem. If you can't accept that things change, then you're dragging us all down, holding us all back, and making the world a worse place.
Art is art. Some art is going to be offensive. some art is going to be progressive. Some art is going to be both, and some art is going to be neither. Some people are offended by different things, some people are offended by everything, and some people aren't offended by anything. Humour, art, and media will always be pushing boundaries and that is literally never going to change; it's just not. The only difference is general public perception. If a comedian or piece of media goes too far and it gets backlash, then that's the collective agreeing that 'no, you went too far', or 'no, that's not okay', and you're just sulking because in the court of social progress, you were on the wrong side.
IF you complain about PC culture ruining media, then you're tacitly admitting that you lost, you were deemed wrong, and that you are lashing out against progress because the world left you behind.
Like, seriously, if you think about it, all manner of media have been existing on a spectrum forever. A movie where a kid befriended an imaginary version of hitler was a comedy, and it got a bunch of academy awards and nominations because it was done with tact and heart. Robert Downey Jr got nominated for an academy award for a movie where he had blackface on. The key is that 'PC culture' isn't a problem unless you failed. Those instances were critically hailed because they were done well, but things like Ghost in the Shell did terrible. the fact that she was white didn't help, but the movie flopped because it was a bad movie. That's why something like God of War does remarkably well, but Duke Nukem does poorly.
The point I'm getting to here in a very roundabout way is that 'PC culture' isn't ruining anything. Shitty people with shitty opinions are just being held accountable for their shittiness and since that's a relatively new thing, people aren't handling it all too well. Art of all sorts can be tame, edgy, offensive, or politically correct, the key is that it has to be at least as good/funny as it is offensive to not be a failure. So no, PC culture isn't ruining games, shitty devs who focus more on shock value and cheap laughs and offensive content over quality or do so without a good reason are the problem.
