DAMN THIS PC NONSENSE!
White Christian males offended that white Christian males are villains
A white American Christian has put up a change.org petition to cancel or substantially alter the recently announced upcoming Ubisoft game Far Cry 5 due to the antagonists in the game being white American Christians. Gamers United, as the petitioner calls himself has a few suggestions for changes, including making the baddies Middle Eastern or “inner-city gangs”, or at the least to make the white nationalist group be more racially diverse because ultra-nationalists are all about welcoming people of different colours and creeds. Other suggestions include making the violent, sexually aggressive villains into anti-heroes by making them a reaction to government overreach and taxation and to change the location to Canada or some other country so Americans can enjoy shooting foreigners instead of their own people.
In Gamers United’s own words, “Us Gamers have had to endure a lot of crap over the last few years. The targeted harassment by the mainstream press through Gamergate, the terrible launch and outright lies of highly anticipated video games, the outright censorship of art through “localization” policies, the continued rejection of romantic partners when they find out our hobby, the appropriation of our culture by so-called “gamers” on twitter. NO MORE!”
As of May 30, the petition had indeed united 124 gamers, the vast majority of whom only signed the petition to take the piss.
Yes, it is a slow news month thanks to E3 being just around the corner.
