    Good writing, good gameplay, good design, excellent visuals, good story. Not sure what else you'd want tbh..."open world" doesn't make a game bad, the problem is that most OW games fall down on the important stuff. This one doesn't.

    Yeah what he said.

    Its also a genuinely new and interesting setting, not just another fantasy world.

    Im shocked seeing edna posting genuinely positive things about anything.

    That's all the proof you need it's a great game tbh.

    It doesn't go overboard on the typical open world grind either. I feel I'm halfway maybe a third through and all of the side missions / errand missions have actually been interesting. But I've only ran into half a dozen so far.

    I definitely recommend not buying the maps either.

    Yup. Owned by Sony sadly so there's zero chance of a PC port.

    it's a relatively well written article about how game designers attempt to portray females.
    Sadly the comments start off encouraging bleaching the entire gene pool and get worse from there.

    The author almost seemed to grasp that Western videogames are overrelient on simplistic, chosen one narratives; but then decided that the issue is a specific instance of said chosen one being a woman.

    That guys website is a self fulfilling prophecy for the rest of his adult life.

    Oh no. Trying to make a story that's compelling makes for a compelling game and maybe it doesn't have some SJW undertone but just worked with a female protagonist, so why not.

    Who gives a fuck. People should just enjoy a good game and stop fucking whining and turning everything into a political statement.

    But if we don't harp on about it constantly, how can we ensure ethics in game journaljism?
