I loaded it up without watching the video and was able to follow it. I did play GZ so i guess that primed me a bit, but that video doesn't clarify things nearly as much as you think it does. The plot is so convoluted.
Yeah that video while illuminating doesn't help the case of those saying they play Metal Gear for the story. That whole plot line sounds like something a really imaginative pre-teen would come up with.
Oh so THAT'S what he meant! Because when I think of Idris Elba the above image is what comes to mind. Got it makes so much more sense now. I'll let all the black people know at the next meeting that it was all one big cultural misunderstanding.
Yeah that's me to a T. I played through GZ on the Xbone abut have MGSV on the PS4. I felt no compulsion to replay GZ on the PS4 despite dl'd it for free. Maybe later on but GZ didn't really do PP justice. Not sure why lol
Anybody remember Battlechasers? I always THOUGHT this would make a great game. I don't participate in kick starters but I will for this one. Loved those books and was pissed they never finished the story.
That's cute but the thing about overt racists, the kind that would actually see lynching as a viable thing to do, is that at least you know where you stand with them. They're easy to spot and easy to deal with. The subtle less obvious shit is the stuff that infects society and keeps us where we are and not moving forward. Dismissing folks as being "social justice warriors" simply because you can't, or won't, see where they're coming from doesn't help matter either. But my bad… I got carried away and let myself get caught up in this conversation and forgot where I was posting. Proceed. I'm gonna go join the rest of the SJW'S and find some cops to persecute
Its not without reason. I gave you the reasons why people justifiably came to that conclusion. Just because YOU don't see it doesn't make it invalid. There is a context. See the very vocal opposition to Elba being casted Bond simply for the reason that he is black. And Elba being best known for playing a Gruff cop? Really? The man has played Drug Dealers, Cops, Norse Gods, Historical Leaders and Giant Robot Pilots. Most people who know of Idris Elba don't automatically say "Hey that's Luther!". They may say "Hey that's Stringer Bell!" or they may say "Hey that's Idris Elba!" The fact that he reduced Elba's varied career to being "Too street" is problematic in an of itself and THAT'S what people are reacting to. I get that you don't get it I truly do. All I'm saying is step outside yourself for two seconds and ask yourself "how could this be perceived in a way that could be problematic?" That's not what you're doing. You're dismissing it outright and I'm saying that its not that simple. People can not be racist and still say racist shit… intentionally or unintentionally. To be clear: What I'm saying is that it's not unreasonable for people to construe what he said as being racist.
I actually feel the same way. These games work best for me semi grounded in reality. When they veer off into anime tropes I roll my eyes. There seems to be a healthy dose of that in this game though. Not so much that its distracting but by the end of mission 2 or 3, you'll see what I'm talking about.
