Some Gamespot BS from a TG

It's a long article about how bascially, TLOU is the same white male lead protecting the women and he's like Kratos because some women died and now he is full of rage and kills everything.

 

Carl(olyn)'s articles are usually about how the white male lead is unfair to women and that games like TLOU should not have included male leads. Oh and Ellie has buck teeth.

 

Pathetic. Anyway, thought you guys would like to read some crap about the game that is redundant and stupid.

I was going to comment about that article but just thinking about it infuriates me. I'm gonna pretend I didn't see it.

Ms. Petit's article falls into the gender stereotype of a female journalist bemoaning the state of male-dominated game storytelling.

Hey, Petit, go make a female-oriented game, or STMFU.

The quality of Gamespot's articles has been underwhelming. I saw the title and didn't even bother reading it.

Even if Carolyn wasn't really a man I wouldn't take her article seriously one bit.

This is stupid. Really stupid. So stupid, in fact, that I am at a loss for words to describe the pure stupidity shown in the article besides using the word stupid.

Everyone has their analytic take on things I suppose. She kind of lost me when she compared Ellie to the ring frodo has to deliver. Ellie is more than a tool, she practically took Joel all the way on their journey. 

 

The article over simplifies the situation just to prove its point.

Not watched the review/read it but is Caroline that cross dresser?

I don't even see how a rational mind can come to the kind of conclusions she came to, did she play the game we did? I mean, I respect difference in opinion but every now and then you stumble across a truly stupid opinion.

It's just a ridiculous article about how people complain about everything. She did the same thing for Gears of War 3, when for the first time in Gears, they made female playable characters for MP, and a big part of the game. Anya, Sam, Bernie, Alicia, were all part of the story, playable(Bernie was DLC later on and Alicia was second player in Raam's Shadow Campaign DLC) and she complained that they were in the game, for not being in the game! Jeeze Louise, this friggin journalist must have got his..no her's...no it's degree out of a cereal box! The quality of her articles is disturbing, and the crap she writes about is perplexing. Yeah Carl, I'm sure everyone thought that. Get off the internet.
