What did oxhorn do to hancocks lore I've been avoiding the video at all costs,,,,
Okay first of all I consider Oxhorn to be one of the better gaming youtubers mostly because he hasn’t done anything extremely offensive yet (I mean I haven’t watched most of his videos) and he generally sticks to gaming and hasn’t done bad shit - point of this being I have no opinion on Oxhorn personally and like I don’t hate on him with this post. I just think his video doesn’t characterize Hancock as well as he could.
Anyway in his Hancock video he raises some really good points, mostly criticizing the fact that Hancock wants anarchy while simultaneously asserts his leadership in Goodneighbor as well as the fact that anarchy is not a really good social system since absolute freedom can lead to the crimes that Hancock tried to prevent in the first place. I understand that he sees anarchy as you are free to be yourself and no one can threaten you for who you are but obviously a lot of people see it more like I can do whatever I want and that means I can just kill a person and no one will give a shit. So that’s when Hancock’s good side kicks in and he establishes his own kind of justice and law (killing Finn at the beginning, killing Vic to save Goodneighbor) however by the end of the video he doesn’t really summarize it right.
He says Hancock has two personalities which is true, not that he has a split personality but in a way he has a sort of vigilante like persona. And Oxhorn says that there is young John McDonough who is a scared junkie that wants freedom and to be able to get away with any crime and the second one is a more mature leader which is vaguely put wrong. ( video here, minute 24:36 )
Hancock is indeed “two different men” as Oxhorn puts it just not like that. There is John McDonough who is a good man at heart who saw injustice and found himself incapable of making things right, found that he cannot help and save the people that were wronged. He is a person with a great sense of justice and a lot of empathy. And the frustration of watching innocent people suffer and die under tyrannical rule made him into John Hancock, who is a leader and is a man who can get his hands dirty if it means it will do some greater good. Its the kind of guy who is not afraid of pulling the trigger and carrying the weight of that decision. Those are his “two personalities” and yes he is constantly at war with himself over it. He constantly does good deeds, he helps people, gives them a place to stay in his house, gives them free chems and so, but also he still would kill a guy just for threatening you so he can establish his authority.
He travels with you trying to find himself and he does in a way, however the game doesn’t really give a conclusion to his arc. If this was New Vegas we’d get to see him decide who he is going to be (like Raul, Veronica, Boone etc) and that would give him a different perk maybe who knows right? Imagine the possibilities. However in Fallout 4 we don’t get a clear on who Hancock decides to become and honestly maybe a bit of both is in a way still good.
And the second thing that Oxhorn says that doesn’t work with me is the fact that he implies Hancock is sleazy and is just messing around with the Sole without the intention to love them. Which is obviously from the point of view of someone who hasn’t really invested himself in a Hancock romance and I don’t know if Oxhorn is straight or not, but everyone that romanced Hancock at any point will agree with me that Hancock really loves the Sole Survivor, its not just a fling, he is not just playing he genuinely loves and cares about them. And him joking about his own immortality compared to the Sole’s (canonical) mortality is just him joking. You see when the drifters ask him for “tours” he says that Sole is the one. He is hurt by rejection. He admits that he didn’t think a guy like him is worth loving. He is genuinely pleasantly surprised that Sole loves him for him.
So while Oxhorn makes really good and detailed videos on lore I think he needs to talk to the fans more especially when talking about the things he doesn’t know or doesn’t experience such as romances or sexualities and genders that are not in line with his own so he can see a different view on the topic. But like I said he had valid points just at the end of the video their summary was off the mark.
