I have to be honest to myself, Makoto is my true husbando, I cannot lie to myself about this, he is the only husbando I need.

Social Justice? On MY Know Your Meme? It’s more likely than you think.

Or maybe he’s joking. That’s possible too. Not everyone is being serious 100% of the time, Todd himself is often very jokey on his twitter

This should be mentioned in the entry, to clear up confusion

However, I don’t agree with your view on scores at all. You seem to assume that if a reviewer marks down something because they perceive a character to be problematic, then that is an aspect independent from the game, which it’s not. Characterisation is a huge part of narrative, of someone doesn’t like the characterisation, they have full right to let that effect their review. Whether or not a game is good is entirely subjective, and will always vary. A review is still an opinion, when you get down to it

Variety is always the key word when it comes to this sort of thing. As an individual trait, it’s fine, but when a lot of female characters fall into this, there’s a problem. That’s always been the point of this SJ criticism to me at least, not about stopping all of it, that’ll never happen even if I wanted it to (I don’t), it’s about encouraging more. But we still have to look at case studies of where the current problems lie, if we want to help encourage more change in the future

Secondly, and the one I find more important, the review scores. I can’t recall where I saw it, but I remember seeing something for “Operation Bayonetta” or something, a movement to help stop advertisers for Polygon because they gave a lower (Not even bad) score for Bayonetta due to the perceived sexism. I find this to be wholly wrong, and even censorship in a way. I’m reminded of Jim Sterling (Another person I think is unfairly treated, but that’s another case) when he discussed gamer dissatisfaction with review scores. The focus should be on the other great scores (some sites even gave it a perfect 10) rather than the one more mixed score. I’m also reminded of a piece the editor of Rock Paper Shotgun wrote, in which he expressed a similar sentiment to my own. I get that people want more sites that look of things without the SJ bias, and that’s fine and understandable, it’s easier to trust reviews that come from the same mindset, but Polygon is just one site. This is basically trying to stop sites that disagree with your worldview, which is unfair on those with an opposing worldview. Don’t like their review style? Don’t read their reviews. Truth be told if I were to go by what I’ve been told GG is truly about (corruption), then why is this considered part of it?
