Hate is bad

Also, humans are bad. Those are the lessons we are supposed to learn from the latest SJW debacle in the making otherwise known as the sequel to The Last of Us. But first, a spoiler of the upcoming game and its ending, simply because I despise SJWs in game development and the idiot designer is upset that everyone now knows how the game ends.

To sum it all up, Everybody dies in TLOU II.  Dina, Ellie, Joel, Jesse. Don't know how Neil Druckmann thought this ending is something everybody would like. I’m disappointed becuase I waited years to just find out everyone dies
There are two main issues that come from the story as it is now outlined on the ResetEra message board. The first is that it takes a lot of beats from The Walking Dead’s plot points, especially with the “humans are the real monsters” and “cycle of revenge” ideas. Even so, those messages aren’t new to the zombie genre, which The Last of Us as a franchise falls into. “There is nothing new under the sun” of course, but from what we’re seeing of the plot, there’s nothing interesting here, either. It also doesn’t help that the exceptionally talented writer Amy Hennig (who wrote much of The Legacy of Kain and Uncharted games) was let go from the company during development. It is speculated that Hennig may have had disagreements with the direction Naughty Dog wanted to go.

What doesn’t really help Naughty Dog’s case is how they’ve focused on identity politics over actual quality storytelling. There have been warning signs for a long time. Creative director Neil Druckmann cited Anita Sarkeesian as an influence in his creative direction. Anita Sarkeesian is the head of Feminist Frequency (a non-profit that criticizes creative works for not being feminist enough), and has zero experience in creating fiction. It is rumored that the female designs in the game were made less feminine so as not to offend trans women. The main enemies of the game are apparently going to be one of the safest kind you could pick: a fundamentalist Christian cult. Generally speaking, the safest bad guys in fiction are demons, Nazis, and fundamentalists. Nobody likes fundies except for other fundies. What’s even worse is that people apparently don’t like the new character Abbie much either.

All of this comes across as a major train wreck. When your creative lead’s main concern is being properly feminist or being a “proper ally,” the product suffers. Especially when you say your game will be “about hate.” The lesson of half of fiction is “hate is bad.” Star Wars created an entire philosophy in its universe where hate turns you monstrous. It’s not exciting. Everything about this project seems generic. The main enemies are the dullest thing imaginable without having them summon Satan and walk around in SS uniforms. The new protagonist is “trans safe” and exists to kill off the old ones, who people actually liked. This is turning into The Last Jedi of video games.

Naughty Dog’s assurances seem pretty hollow. You can’t really do anything to make a narrative-driven game tantalizing to gamers when the narrative looks so poor. The best way to summarize the plot is to compare it to a treehouse with the LGBTQ+ flag draped over it. Naughty Dog is trying its best to assure people that what’s under that flag is great, but when you finally get past them and pull the flag down, the treehouse is likely rotten and termite-infested. The fact of the matter is that Neil Druckman was too busy worrying about not offending Woke Twitter and the trigger-happy games press, and not worrying enough about telling a good story that will make people want to buy his game.
SJWs delenda est. It's interesting that the author points to Star Wars, specifically, The Empire Strikes Back, as the source for so much of the SJW's nonsensical narrative. All because, being wicked and despicable, they are desperate to avoid being the subject of the well-deserved righteous hatred of normal, functional people.

The ride never ends.

I saw the leaked footage. In the original game at some point you play as Ellie fighting off a pedo cannibal. They use the same fighting mechanic from that scene in the sequel except now you play as Joel's killer hunting down Ellie. It's just dumb.

They should have just let the pedo cannibal live so you could play as him in the sequel to hunt everyone down. They could have included a rape mini-game and a cooking mini-game. Doesn't that sound fun?

I'm curious to see if they will try to copy strike all the "let's plays" on release day.

My law firm once upon a time was one of a bunch of outside counsel for a very very large retailer. They brought many of us to the headquarters company town for training seminars, and then spent half the time on rather silly PC lectures and classes.

Got back to work, and they started demanding monthly censuses on the diversity of the lawyers on their monthly billing: Black/Hispanic/Openly gay... I was lucky because I have a small disability rating from my time in the military so that counted.

The guys who were really screwed were the design firms. There are almost no Black or Hispanic civil engineers with a stamp. Those few there are, are in sinecures as tenured faculty or are at the biggest firms in charge of going to events.

They finally went 100% crazy and were taking out lights in their stores in favor of skylights that leaked and hiring store GMs and regional managers who were minority but otherwise horrible so the funds told them to chill out. But all those Ivy grads/MBAs in the c-suite and right below were totally PC. It was crazy

@11 It's not power of gamma. It's SJW infiltration. They cover for each other and the more influence they have on any company, the more they push for more SJWs in the company. If a SJW finds his or her way into a position of making creative decisions in a gaming company, the very first suggestion will be to hire Sarkeesian. This is how they work.

I must admit I've been enjoying this and it seems to be yet another demonstration of what happens when a gamma is allowed to take charge. Naughty Dog were one of the most successful companies of the PS3/360 generation and have had a consistent track record of quality games since the 1990s. Since Druckman became the visible head of the company around 2013, they've released two and half new games and started this dumpster fire.

Yeah, there should be no surprise that it is all going up in a fire. The first hint should have been Uncharted 4, in which a woman is some how able to win a fist fight against two men. The other should have been the interracial lesbo kiss in The Last of Us: Left Behind. Of all the things they could have done for a prequel, they decided to focus on the romantic life of their fourteen-year-old character. Kinda creepy.

Why does a hate bad?
This is what I find so insidious. These people who are so against hate are doing all the hating. They are against bullying, and doing all of the bullying. But there is no point in getting my bowtie in a twist and try to print that out to them. They relish in it.
But oh, it's wrong for me to hate them for it?
It's a cult that knows they are doing things to make people hate them, so they make the emotion itself the crime.
I think it's time to review the concept of hate, and the idea that hate can be justified depending on the target. They already demonstrate that with their street violence. And I'm not going to Christcuck it up and go with that love your enemy crap. It's a form of self aggrandizement to think getting crucified puts one nearer to Jesus. That only works for Him, not us.
As surely as we have a right to judge, we have a right to hate. And if hate is the only energy left to have after all other motivations and spirit are gone, then so be it.

One of the biggest problems I had from the first game was how it was all resolved. Why did nobody ask Ellie if she wanted to sacrifice herself to save mankind? Scary to think about, yes, but think of the suffering that would have ended.

But then again, why bother because supposedly this cult in the second one is supposedly immune. See? It's easy to pull plot devices out of your ass without even thinking about it! You, too, can have an SJW's incongruous thought process!

Early Uncharted games were great. Elena was a friendly, pretty girl-next-door type. Then Chloe was SMOKIN' HOT and kinda slutty. Both were flirty, adventurous and fun. Then fast forward to later iterations and the girls are just FRUMPY. Less cleavage, noticeably flatter asses and very little in the way of feminine charms.

The latest Uncharted spinoff featuring Chloe as the lead character has her with a more masculine jawline and flat flat flat ass. No man in the story to flirt with. Instead Nathan's dumb brother is inserted as a minor prop who does nothing but bungle and get in the way while the 110 lb. Chloe strangles 220 lb armored men to death.

The SJWs did the same with Lara Croft. A character that obviously began as a pure sex symbol to sell to adolescent BOYS (exaggerated hourglass figure and suggestive, flirty, narrative) morphed into a flat-assed, whiny feminist cunt who constantly has to perform Stuart Smalley style self-affiramtions around the campfire. "You can do this Lara!" she tells herself about a hundred times in the game.

The gameplay is still enjoyable at times, but I find myself muting whole sections of stupid bitch-splainin'. Then I yell at the TV, "Shut up, whore! Just bend over, crawl through the tunnel, and blow the bad guys to smithereens with the grenade launcher!"

The first game ripped off Ellen Page's image. That broken little lesbian was the SJW goddess ideal for a time and the theft of her image was obviously calculated to appeal to that crowd. Also; games that are loaded with boring cutscenes suck.

Blogger Gallant May 03, 2020 12:12 PM  

I was in games back in the 90s when they started pushing this stuff, though back then you were allowed to disagree with them and even counter with 'how about we don't do that and just get back to work?'. Today, those guys have kind of won the field. Certainly, to be against pushing 'positive messages' in games would get you blacklisted; but especially among the creatives most would believe in this.

If there were artists disagreeing on this direction, it would have been over how hamfisted they were making it, and over things like having the big surprise be a BAD surprise.

Blogger James Lovebirch May 03, 2020 3:07 PM  

@30

Spoilers. You really should play the first game minus the DLC if you like video games.

Joel's character after the outbreak incident was as a ruthless and monomaniacal survivor and protector of his people. The game tells you over and over that attitude is what it takes to make it. To me the idea is that Joel considers her his people, and as such he wouldn't let her make the choice to kill herself even if she wanted to. The firefly people could just as easily have been bluffing; they say "this is what she wanted" not "we let her regain consciousness and she told us to sacrifice her". The game drops hints in the final level that there have been a lot of Ellies, and they failed to make a cure every time. Joel didn't extract her because of that, but it was there.

Joseph Anderson also made a video on Youtube analyzing the ending while keeping a lot of subtle points like that throughout the story in mind you should check out. It's part of a huge video that includes some Uncharted games.

Finally, in the spirit of the other post today on feminism, why would you let a 14-year-old girl make the decision? Joel and her know nothing about what's going on and the fireflies have no incentive to be honest with them. You can see Ellie would only want to die due to her feelings and trauma, which is why the right thing for Joel to do is kidnap her and tell her to sit down.

If anyone is on the fence about playing the first one but worried about a cucked story, just skip the DLC. The most cucked the main game gets is having a couple slightly unrealistic moments with female characters. The gameplay portions are 90% excellent, as long as you don't mind the game being a linear sequence of setpieces. It is easy to nitpick considered in a vacuum, but it is one of the better games ever created.

The Last of Us was fundamentally cucked from the premise.

The devs expect us to believe that a masculine White male warrior after the zombie apocalypse would go through the trouble of fighting off what was more or less an army for a fertile White girl and NOT make her his woman who'll bare his children.

That's what it sounds like. I don't think the general trend away from attractive females in entertainment is specifically to please trannies, though in this case it may be. I think it's more about pleasing feminists and homosexuals, including the ones making the product. Feminism is now not just anti-feminine, but anti-female (as well as anti-male).

It's funny to compare it to girl-power movies in the 1970s, when the whole point was that they could be tough and kick ass--and be really hot and get the guy too. Those movies are probably considered misogynistic now.

I did enjoy pre-woke ND games like the Uncharted trilogy, but I knew the company was done with the first Last of Us game. It was obvious.

Exploring what God hates (sin is so generic as to be to pliable) can be instructive, since hate itself is not evil, as God applies hates righteously. The scripture you noted addresses seven things God considers abominations:
1. proud looks
2. lying tongues
3. hands that shed innocent blood
4. hearts that devise wicked imaginations
5. feet that swiftly run to mischief
6. false witnesses that speak lies
7. Those that sow discord among the brethren
The list that can added is long but a few significant things He hates are:
* Those who hate Him - Deuteronomy 7:10 and those who love those who hate Him - 2 Chronicles 19:2
* Idolatry and the worship of false gods, especially child sacrifice - Deuteronomy 12:31
* The wicked who love violence - Psalm 11:5
* Divorce, with very few exceptions - Malachi 2:16
* Those who hate the righteous - Psalm 34:21
The issue is us and how do we keep our hate righteous...not an easy task.

I checked out some of the spoilers, and I agree with a take someone had about Star Wars during those debacles. This game is a humiliation ritual for the people who care about the first game.

Joel is almost 50 in the first game and Ellie is 14. There's a lot to nitpick about the first game especially if you read books, but it's a story about a strong male protecting people he cares about. Verdict: not cucked.

Men don't go through menopause. A man into his 40s can certainly produce children with a girl who's 14.

More importantly, it's not believable that a man like Joel (alpha, White) living in the world after humanity's mass demise would go so far for some girl that isn't either his birth child/otherwise blood relative or future mother of his children. If you unddrstand male psychology enough then you'd know a proper man who's not a cuck or beta orbiter type would only help a stranger woman at extreme risk to himself if it's his duty (as in firefighters) or if he's eyeing her for sex.

Not easy, but actually pretty simple. Note that exactly none of those are mere disrespect.

That is the actual lesson of turning the other cheek. A slap is just an insult, and taking it further is wrong according to God.

So hate out of pride is not righteous, and don't do it.

No. It can be hard to discern but not pliable at all.

"The issue is us and how do we keep our hate righteous...not an easy task."

Granted, but failing to hate anything is definitely unrighteous. We have the emotion for a reason.

Protecting some random person who actually has nothing to do with you is "nice" in the bad sense. He doesn't have any reason to care about Ellie. Ellie turning out to be lesbian is just bonus woke/cucked points. I could even see him setting her up with a younger relative of his later as a valid reason, but not this.
