    Oh undoubtedly. At least some tried to provide more of a public service with a sense of duty, though. That sentiment seems largely dead today.

    Notable fact about the game's diversity.
    • Over sixty woman who blows away the bad guys in her helicopter and is in a relationship with a much younger man without it being treated as weird. Also, still lovely herself.

    • Grace Armstrong is a black female Olympian and ex-military sniper. She's also a faithful Christian.

    • Pastor Jeffries, great awesome character. Also black.

    • Nick Rye, white redneck....also in a loving interracial marriage with a biracial child newly born in the game.

    • 3 major female companions who aren't fanservice or love interests.

    • A racially diverse community living in harmony that rises up together against an evil cult of fanatics.
    Sometimes you just can't win with people.

    But they don't carry an agenda and aren't written by a bunch of tumblerinas, so they aren't diverse enough.

    The diversity is bad, because the game is not about killing Trump supporters.
    A game in rural America that doesn't depict everyone as white supremacists fucking their cousins is just too scared of making a political statement!!11

    I'm generally staying away from Ubisoft games. Nothing against the game but I'm giving Ubisoft a wide berth in the mean time.

    That said, people judging against the game for being apolitical? That's pretty whacked.

    Yeah, same. I feel bad avoiding developers I used to love, but their goddamn parent companies suck.

    If you're referring to Vivendi they've got WAY less shares on them than in the past, well enough.

    I'm referring to Vivendi, Zenimax, Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Square Enix, Take-Two, Valve, and every other asshole company that got too big for its britches, lost touch with the gamer, and started implementing anti-consumer market strategies.

    "How dare the game developers make their game apolitical and reach out to both sides of the political isle. If a game doesn't conform to my political beliefs then its automatically racist, sexist and bigoted." ~ Modern Game Journalist Logic

    You know, if you think about it, this is the kind of logic one would see with a freshman student in a high school. "My ideology is the one true ideology in the world! I know better then everyone else! Anyone who doesn't agree with my beliefs and ideology is bad! REEE!"

    Unfortunately as people withdraw further and further into their respective cultural echo chambers, this simplistic outlook has become frighteningly more common post-graduation. People need to get off the internet every so often and go interact with different social groups.

    Ok well in that case, people need to visit other websites. Honestly I'd love to see users from places like No Mutants Allowed try to have a friendly discussion with rivals such as the people who frequent Bethesda forums. No name calling, no ad hominems, just have a nice discussion like civil human beings. That would probably be harder than getting a CNN and Fox News anchor to have a rational conversation, though.

    I do that daily :P. Not on the bethesda.net forums because I hate the layout and how it works, but on discord and our forum.
