Lol yeah being skeptical of the video game industry's sensitivity toward cultural ownership and appropriation is totally concern trolling. Jeeeeesus Christ.Because it's nonsensical to think that a dev owned by a Japanese company, who has to get approval for and funding from said Japanese company shouldn't be allowed to make a game based in Japan. Hell its silly even if they had no ties to Japan at all and still wanted to make this game but this is doubly silly. I'm not even sure what to label this, ethnic concern trolling?
"Petty fear mongering"
Accusing Sucker Punch of being culturally insensitive and acting like they shouldn't be allowed to make this game. Who needs to take a step back here and listen to themself?
I definitely did not say that they shouldnt be allowed to make this game. You're being ridiculous.
What is the point of this attutude. It seems like you're making an asserted attempt to drive people away."Petty fear mongering"
Can you take a step back and listen to yourself for a second?

Videogames are fond of constructing imaginary versions of real world locales. The Grand Theft Auto series invites open comparisons between its Vice City and the actual Miami; Call of Duty 4: Modern…digitallovechild.com
there isn't anything concrete to criticize as far as Tsushima is concerned. Even the article you linked wasn't as damning as you made it sound, seems more like a missed opportunity that Deslin is from a fiction native american tribe than a real one.
GoW and Spider-Man were perfect imo, 1 year and 10 months for one and 2 years and 3 months for the other, seems fine for huge AAA exclusives.
Yes, I am aware, and so is the Last Samurai movie staring tom cruise. But let's not kid ourselves, they used that story because they thought it would result in higher sales in the west. Your facts and my opinion are not contradictory.Nioh character (William) is based on a real life person William Adams, an actual white guy that became a Samurai.
