[...] as an older player, I'm soon to bid farewell to this all so my opinion may not matter [...]
Don't underestimate the age of the other players, I'm 34. I think the opinion of the elders is more important than those15yo whiners with a false sense of justice. Your opinion is important!
[...] So really, that's how it is for me. I feel I can support a stance without having to attack others, and despite some people may find me annoying (and I suspect some may have blocked me), I'll still conduct myself in a respectful way, hoping I can maybe lead by example.[...]
I, as a anti-censorship user, really respect your opinions. You are someway neutral and somewhat dislike the sexualizations of the characters in this game. In the end it's true, the old Phantasy Stars games, before 2012, didn't have this kind of sexualization. PSO2, PS Nova, and New Genesis are made by a different team. I fully understand that longtime fans haven't seen this change as a good thing. But there is nothing that can be done, and in my opinion forcing it with censorship only causes more problems. In the end it is not possible to transform PSO2 into PSO1 via censorship, if that was the real intent of the localization team, who knows.
