World War II General Discussion

With the developers and producers pandering to leftist political nonsense to make a ww2 based shooter  'inclusive to all' so as not to offend minorities or women then they deserve all the mockery and ridicule they get !

 

It wouldn't surprise me if wonder women makes an appearance (similar to predator in ghosts) at some point in the games life cycle!

 

I was looking forward to this release but it is fast becoming a joke imo !


It's not about politics. It's because more and more woman play games.

The devs are making the campaign as historical accurate as they can and may. 

The multiplayer player is set more open. Like a game of paintball or airsoft. A game set in a ww2 setting. 

And they way the opening post and his other replies in this thread are obvious troll.

Tbh, I know the op is probably just trolling but he has a point, there is a huge amount of older gamers nowadays, so why aren't they represented ?

 

It is all about socialistic left wing politics by the devs and producers that's my opinion anyway.

 

Women should not be represented in a combat role for either German or US front line troops in anything to do WW2. 

 

If your going to make a total fantasy game then call it something other than WW2 .

Female soldiers in a game => socialistic agenda? You draw nice connection there.

I don't get it. Is ATVI running for office or something? Pretty sure ATVI doesn't have anything on their mind besides capitalism. And the 200 women that might buy the game -now- because they can play as a woman... isn't going to change the profit much.

 

I really just think its about customization and giving the players a feeling of putting 'themselves' into battle. Similar to the Xbox avatars. It's a video game thing... not a political thing.

Me neither. Besides if there are political motives (well there's always in decision making, personal is political...) why past motives were anything more acceptable. People need to get over it and see that world changes. Culture and society evolve in small steps while it repeats past in cycles...weird isn't it?

Yeah. I think MWR is a good example of that. When Infinity Ward made CoD4 there weren't any females... not in the campaign or multi. 9 years later we have character customization in MWR that lets us play as men/women in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes.

 

I don't see WWII any different. The past has been modified in multiplayer and has evolved in a way to give us a greater connection to our characters... plain and simple.

You could hide an unauthorized weapon in a cane, more than one in a walker. What do think we're trying to do, encourage violence here?

Historical accuracy is all I'm asking for. All the way around.

As an older gamer myself I would hate to think that it took the developer adding walking canes and wheelchairs to an online shooter just to make ME feel, "included" in their supposed "all inclusive" development of a playable cartoon person.  I can hear it now..."Hey, and for all you "aged" players out there, we've deployed wheelchairs and walking canes so you too can feel "included"  I would almost take THAT as an insult more than I would the lack thereof.  As if being an older gamer doesn't already come with it's challenges, you want to go at it with a cane or in a wheel chair?!...SMH.  

 

And to say it's being "ageist" by not including older player models is, IMO, a bit heavy handed .

 

So for those wondering if Swastikas, Women and now "Old People in Wheelchairs" are going to be part of the game, maybe you should really be hoping the game has better connections, a better system for matchmaking and no Slot Machine Weaponry System.  Otherwise running the "Old Nazi Woman in a Wheelchair" character won't make the game any better for ya.

 

On the other hand you might not have to take up a perk slot with Blind Eye.   It comes standard...
