@Matt said in I am very disapointed in PSO2 for having this Independence Day event:
It's so strange that many posts are "why are you seeking politics in a video game?" when an independence day event is inherently political, especially with the symbolism used in game.
"Politics in video games" are actually everywhere, you can't just hand-wave it away by saying "I don't see politics in video games". Ignoring or tolerating something that could potentially be unacceptable is implicitly condoning it, regardless of what messaging it might be sending out to others (Note: I am not commenting on the event itself here, just this "phenomenon" of "NO POLITIK IN VIDYA GAEM" warriors).
My personal opinion: This event is the most cringeworthy thing I have ever seen, but I think this is a side-effect that the American display of patriotism is easily the most cringeworthy thing ever, and this is what this event has tried to emulate.
Ya, cuz All Might was making a political statement when he did this:
Hate to break it to you and the idiot OP, but this is a game. It's not real life. It's a fantasy game. If we play Battlefield or Call of Duty or Counter Strike and shoot people in it, it's not making pro-murder statements. It's not justifying murder. It's not saying anyone is pro-gun 2nd amendment. It's not pro-war. It's a fucking video game.
omggggg pro-naziiii omgggg this game is making political statements supporting nazis, hating jews omgggg!
Dunno what is up with all this anti-American talk. If you hate America don't play American hosted games. Simple as that hypocrites. You are all such surface level thinkers, it hurts my brain.
