As far as politics goes, I agree with the Drinker that the amount in this game is rather low compared to all the uproar about the game. I have three basic thoughts on that:

  1. The uproar overall is mostly due to non-political issues with the story and the bad comparison to the first game.
  2. A lot of people have an immediate and reflexive “kill it with fire!” reaction to SJW politics. A harsh reaction is response to that individuals dislike of the politics independent of the game, not to what extent the game espouses them. This is true of myself personally.
  3. Similarly to a lot of politically controversial movies, the promotion of the game is far more political than the game(or movie or whatever) itself. For TLoU2, there was a lot more political bulls*** in the advertising and promotion of the game before and after launch than there is in the game itself, and a lot of the negative reaction to those politics is a reaction to the promotion.

He's saying it seems tastleless to go straight to sex without developing the relationship with your audience first, and I agree, it makes the act feel cheap. I think the reason they did it was just to thrust the scene into the audiences face before they can put the game back in the case to return it to the store.

Most women aren’t toxic feminists, thankfully. Even less girlfriends are, as toxic feminists tend to find themselves more often single.

No girlfriend right now, but I did have one girlfriend many years back that was really into Grey's Anatomy, and I used to tease her a bit because that show was definitely just all about everyone sleeping around with everyone else in a hospital. Most of the girls that I have been close to are usually lecturing me on watching films with too much sex in it rather than the other way around.

But now that you mention it, I have seen movies that do an initial sex scene to establish character, real classics like Hard Ticket to Hawaii for example.

A surprisingly subdued and balanced review, for a change given where it’s coming from:

Meh I didn't like his review. Just another guy who wants to impart his own "wisdom" on how the story SHOULD have gone.
