when GGers push for this idea of “objectivity” in game reviews, in the discussions i’ve seen on twitter and in practice, it means that game reviewers should be restricted to this narrow range of “acceptable” critique.
but the game’s story and the social implications of a game should absolutely never be considered
so what if the games that get the most marketing dollars are all jingoistic propaganda that makes war seem like just an action movie.
there’s absolutely no way that this can have any kind of social implications. absolutely none.
