I’m so sick of hearing about “SINSORSHIP!” of video games when talking about localization of games for English-speaking markets. Localization changes have literally happened since the 80s during the NES era, if not sooner. Nintendo used to be known for removing any reference to any type of drugs, including alcohol and cigarettes, to removing anything remotely religious like crucifixes.
But I have a message to all the people crying about it, and it is the message they have been sending me for a long time “Toughen up, and if you don’t like it make your own games, or buy different games.” Also, instead of crying about it, if underage females’ panties are so important to you, learn Japanese, import or hack your console to make it region-free, and play the game “as it was meant to be” as you say.
Like for real, shut the fuck up with this constant crying and outrage, it is practically all you do. This never used to be a thing till the internet became a thing, and now you have people like “CENSORED GAMING” on YouTube who practically make a living off of seeking out things to be outraged about. Things that mostly involve creepily looking up the skirts of virtual tweens, or vagina bones, because that is a real phrase that came out of a real person’s mouth as they got outraged over the ‘removal’ of them.
After literally decades of not being represented in video games, and still having maybe one or two characters that even remotely resemble me (chubby / large pansexual bearded guy) anytime I speak up about this I’m dogpiled by people that want to censor my voice, want me to shut up, want me to just “deal with it and grow up,” and so on. Well, take your own fucking medicine, you sad, little, perverted man-children. At least I’m trying to get things changed for the better, you just care about seeing the underwear of children. Sick.
