That is because people don't like Political Correctness to also be jammed down their throats in leisure time when playing video games. Just look at COD ww2. Black female Wehrmacht soldiers. You kidding me?
This has everything to do with current society based pressures and social justice warrior constructs. They weren't in games 5 years ago? New wave of feminism black live matters is in full swing. Heck even the person that thought up and made Friends a tv series was sued because there were no primary black personalities in that show.
Now here comes the sad part about these things. I now have to emphasize: I do not mean this post to be racist or sexist in any way, this is just my opinion.
Otherwise this will get stoned to death by social justice warrior ponies and feminists LUL.
And I fully understand why it sets people off, because it is ridiculous now with the level of pandering to any minority that goes on.
However, the point I was trying to make is that people here can be so quick to judge something and will discard an entire game, which they know nothing about (and what they do is based on rumours and potentially false information), simply because they take offence at the first sign of any "pandering". It really blows my mind how closed down to anything slightly new and threatening some people are, when in the end, it doesn't really matter. If they want to talk about correct representation, start a youtube channel where you can vent at 5 subscribers.
