even if the initial phrasing is accurate... I don't see the problem. If you were going to buy ANY game sight unseen, you're probably going to enjoy it more and have more of a sense of discovery if you go in without pouring over detailed gameplay breakdowns.This tweet doesn’t even remotely sound as conniving and condescending as the thread title makes it seem. He literally said he’d prefer people to go in blind, but made a gameplay trailer for people who are curious to know more about how Death Stranding works.
Why are things like this allowed when any other time the dramatic posters on this site would be having a fit?
Plenty of people do this with movies by directors they like, and often directly frame it as "trusting" them.
It's not like a game is any more important than a movie that there's going to be some huge consequence for going in blind and then disliking it. I don't get why people would look at this and say "well I'm going to watch whatever this is because i'm still not convinced, BUT ALSO EVERYONE WHO DOESN'T WATCH IT IS WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE WORLD" or "I'm really concerned about the people who will go in blind, it's unhealthy and sick."
It's literally like shaming people for not watching an advertisement.
I'm not ever going to play this game, but this reaction seems bizarre to me.
My dude said "hey there's some stuff to convince you coming" and people are like "I AM NOT CONVINCED"??? What is the purpose of saying that
