He didn’t said that “you can ignore it”.
But let me ask you this: what they should’ve done? Ignore the game completely? I’m all for that, but I don’t see that ever happening. Focusing only on bad stuff? Maybe, but, again, not really realistic.
And I’m honestly asking, because, speaking of white knighting (I’m white dude), I often don’t sure what to do in situations like that. There are couple of recent action movies with female leads that were doing all the usual sins, but women were like “fuck off, we like it”. Or how Spawn on Me podcast was mocking John Walker for his review of “Mafia III” in a “welcome to my life, white boy” kinda way. And I agree. There is stuff that is not for me. Not for me to watch/play/listen to, and/or not for me to criticize.
That’s why it is a good idea to hire diverse group of people to cover games. But, surprise, all people are people, and they would still like things with problematic content in them.
