It seems some people now operate under the presumption they have a right not to be offended. If someone has ignorant, bigoted opinions, there's literally no way of relaying that information to them without causing offense. The many should not have to cater to the sensibilities of a few. Why? To do so is narcissism gone mad. Furthermore, to hide yourself from truth and opinion is willful delusion from reality. Schizophrenics should be shamans, in South American, drug tourist jungle villages only. Anything else is the blind leading the blind. Choosing to not see something doesn't mean it's not there. And a trigger warning is a hypnotic trick to keep you asleep from feeling. Whenever I hear the term, my already high blood pressure goes up 20 points. Where's my warning?
I doubt I believe anything I said. I just want the illusion of being relevant. But it's odd we live in a world with so many real issues so overcooked and ready to be solved. Did a great man not once say, "People should not be killed over the color of their skin, but the content of their character"? Racism is the equivalent to hating someone because you don't like the color teal on their San Jose Sharks uniform. Which is admittedly a corny jersey but. I don't believe in gay or straight marriage. Deal it out with wills and contract law. If marriage is between a man and a woman it's weird people readily allow the government into their bedroom. If we're all equal, I don't see why marriage gets you tax benefits.
War, homelessness, homicide, violence, suicide, for-profit prison systems, corrupt business practices and a disregard for our finite natural resources almost seem to be taking a backseat to... cat calling. The barbaric genital mutilation of infants still legal and overwhelmingly practiced in this country gets less attention than whatever adult Caitlin Jenner is doing with her dick. And government spying isn't a big deal because I'm not doing anything wrong. Anyone who says that, post your address. I just want to watch you sleep a while like a vampire in Twilight.
I know just as nothing as the next man. But I do know rapper Common did not get in a time machine and travel back to walk the streets of Selma with Martin Luther King so we could live in such a racially, socially, and sexually segregated society. Now get in the pit and try to love someone.

Speaking of which, all my hard earned gold coins from my dual employment will NOT be going to Bethesda Software, LLC. now and forevermore into the future.
I'm a Christian man but I swear it has little influence on my choice of entertainment with the exception of OBVIOUS displays of amorality, sin, morbidity and evil.
Listen, I'm not here to lecture you, but DON'T BUY THIS GAME. This is a game for bloodthirsty bloodhounds and there's even an option to play as a BAD PERSON in these games, I'm told. You have "KARMA," but even as a good person you BLOW THE HEADS OFF OF ALIENS and EVILDOERS at an alarming rate, no council, no trail.
WHEN will a game come, that the masses seek? When will video games see Mass Appeal? When will they reach Critical Mass and Critical Reception? There's a reason they don't win Academy Awards. I'm tired of these shoot-'em-up games for future spree-killers to gain ideas. What about games of Discovery? What about the Beauty of Building, not Destruction?
I do NOT wish to use my agency to DESTROY.
I DO wish to use my agency to do GOOD.
WHEN WILL VIDEO GAMES GO MAINSTREAM?
Don't answer me. There is no answer. Grandmas don't play video games. Moms don't. Sisters don't. Past the Age of Maturity real men play with Work Ethic, Power Tools, their Wives, and rarely video games. I'm tired of these games called Fighting. They present deformations of a woman's personhood with NO PERSONALITY and skimpy costumes with ENGORGED BREASTS. The solution to all video games is VIOLENCE. Even kids movies these days like The Lego Movie, the entire legacy we send to children is SOLVE PROBLEMS WITH VIOLENCE.
|Like ISIS we indoctrinate children with violence|
For every Grand Theft HAGGARD-EXAMPLE-FOR-OUR-CHILDREN V game release, when will we have a counter-balancing Ambulance Serviceperson Simulator? How about working as a check-in handling agent at an airport and learning about different countries? Or do children of today even want to see other countries... Think about it.
We are so privileged we spend our recreational time being hunted in a post-apocalyptic wasteland! That's how bored we are. Whatever happened to providing fairtrade coffee to the impoverished young of Ecuador? Sending ham to the desolate and remote villages in Northern Japan where ham is rare? What about sending air to the people of the Swiss Alps where breathable air is a commodity?
We live in complete commodity, our lives... birth, until judgement.
|Graphics aren't even very "Dope"|
It's not an original concept. This game has hundreds of hours of content and it ALL revolves around BLOWING THE HEADS OFF SENTIENT BEINGS. All games called FPS (frames per second shooters) games revolve around shooting the heads off of people. You shoot things in the face, that's your prerogative. Is that the sum of human accomplishment? To put a destructive hole in each other's Center of Intelligence?
BILLIONS of dollars, per year, we spend to neglect our kids in front of a flatscreen so they can STAB, KILL and HUMILIATE THE CORPSES of their online friends. FPS should stand for Future Person-Shooter. We are training kids for war, not declarative statements about the virtues of peace.
What happened to holding hands?
What happened to going steady?
What happened to a swell-time without a realistic and ritualistic recreation of murder?
THE GREATEST GAME EVER
|This is what real gameplay looks like|
This game is a breath of fresh air, because you don't play as a shooter, you play as the wind. You don't lose, or die, or get reborn like only Christ can do, you simply are... wind. You collect rose petals through vast landscapes, and thus further beautify the land. Any screen capture of this game is an indelible delight and artistic achievement. And the game takes a dark turn toward the end as you navigate the nature God haseth let mankind destroy. Smog and broken streets, and it's your place to restore.
Let us rejoice in beauty mankind can sometimes so seldom seem to offer, and rejoice tradition and beauty... not shooting big POW-y blasting plasma rifles that obliterate the image of a person's face into supernova of blood with bone fragments as a backdrop of stars. Because those beautiful, unshootable faces, belong to our sons and daughters, aunts and uncles, and our mothers.
