Why So Serious?

 

 

Cordova, TN; March 20, in the year of our Lord 2017--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is publishing an article on the over the top seriousness some people have of the video game industry. Did anyone forget that video games are supposed to be fun? Who out there decided video games must be serious business? Is it because of all the money some suits make off of video games? Did greed and corruption within the video game industry remove the fun from playing games? Think about that for a minute. We are talking about playing games. We are not talking about flying a plane, or operating on someone. We are not talking about which stocks to buy. We are talking about playing games. Games are meant for fun. It baffles me how serious some people take video games.

Why do we need video games to make social commentary on political issues? Why do most of those video games come from the extreme, radical far left? I find it funny to hear people say we need to have balance, and then demand that only the extremely radical far left can make social commentary statements in video games. Where is the balance? There have been decades of a black eye on the video game industry of discrimination against Christians. Where are the video games demanding that third class treatment of Christians ends? The lack of balance in the video game industry is one of the reasons I cannot take them very seriously. I also see a lack of fairness in video games with social commentary. They do not give both sides of an issue. Nope. Just the one side is given – the far left extreme radical heavily skewed slant (usually fake news stories). That tells me they only want to promote their beliefs.

So some feminists are mad that The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is not far enough left for them. Then other journalists decide they have to debate them, and correct them. I think both sides missed the point. Nintendo made a video game to make money for their company. Both sides arguing made Nintendo money. Nintendo made this game to be fun. Sure they shoved their zealot religious false goddess beliefs that should make Gaia worshipers happy (something we are not happy with here at Family Friendly Gaming). Overweight people are mad at Sony for Fat Princess (a game I will never play). The list goes on and on. Complaining about video games not supporting your personal political beliefs is getting worse. I say chill out, relax, and purchase games that you enjoy. Encourage companies to include what you want. Remember games are for fun.

God bless,
