This right here is just further proof that this game has been trashed online by majority of people who have pathetic level of fanboy agenda and has very little to do with the protagonist being gay.
Seriously and were supposed to believed random blogs, random online dwellers now that all the high scores are paid reviews and that the 0 user scores are from the real "fans" that thinks the game is the worst of the worst not even functional game? "Real fans" who got a a list of all xbox games rated 10.....get real.
Fanboyism at its peak, grown men/women going through all this just to destroy a game that a lot of people put so much passion and time to make because it's not playable on the plastic box they purchased.
My friend, go on the link I posted earlier and look at the reviews. Nearly all of them describe issues that make direct references to the game content. These people needed to buy the game and play it to make such a review, something I doubt a person with a pro-xbox agenda would do. Because it requires that they support a Sony studio with time & money.
To give you a sense of what's there, here is the first user review when ordered by helpfulness (default).
It breaks my heart to write this, but I really did not expect such a poor story after all these years of waiting. While there were a few genuinely good moments, majority of game filled up with plot holes. It just took elements of what worked for the first game without understanding what made them compelling. It seems like this game was done by other studio, but its not!!. The basic gameplay has stayed the same (for better or worse), environment puzzles are almost gone. So remove story from the table and you are left with the shallow gameplay that will have you looking for some other game.
Here are some others:
Be reassured that while there are a minority of people who might be acting with an agenda, and that's sad, it seems like the mass of reviews are from people who bought and played the game. Don't let someone who groups a handful of bad reviewers into one image mislead you, because then the person who constructed the image would be acting with a pro-sony agenda, and that would be just as bad if not worse because it's misleading. I'm not referring to StokedUp but to the person who constructed that image.
Be vigilant of the information you are being told, some seeks to divide people instead of uniting them for a cause. To demonstrate what I mean, console wars never came up with a nearly identical issue with Star Wars The Last Jedi, because in film that doesn't happen as much. Sure there are fans of Star Trek and Star Wars and some of both, but nobody blamed the low user score of The Last Jedi on fans of Star Trek, it wouldn't make sense.
Focus on the game, what made you love it, what made you not so much. And if you had an issue with something, don't be shy to say so if there is an issue. Whether you post a review or not is your personal choice, but don't let the companies ever dictate your preferences. I hated what they did to Star Wars, and I personally will certainly voice my discontent over it. The visuals were great, the new characters showed promise, but in the end the content fell flat and treated my beloved characters with contempt, and I was angry that they disrespected something I loved, in the name of an agenda or of Subverted Expectations, that lame word they use to justify uselessly killing characters we love to promote most-likely a feminist, anti white man agenda. If a character makes sense with a certain aspect, then great. But here, things are being designed from the ground up to further that agenda, an so the quality of the universe we are plunged into suffers for it. I only read about TLOUII, but I saw what happened to Star Wars so I understand if fans of the game are upset, and I think you should too. You should get away from pointing fingers at fans of other consoles and look at the actual probable root of the problem: that corporations are meddling into creative art, games and movies, and it's really nasty.
