Nowadays some people are saying Harvest Moon is "homophobic" and Stardew Valley is superior and should be supported instead because "it isn't", and that's not even as offensive (if muscles and covered boobs are offensive) as Dragon's Crown by Kamitani, who just had his big break after some years of near poverty coming from Princess Crown and finally made for it his dream game sequel, and people want to take him down.

I'm not going to help you OP because I know how you will use that information, and because many of them have just started to do games again to salvage what's left of AA gaming in this current shitty landscape, and don't deserve to be taken down because they worked at a company where some artist in some game put something in the game, whether actually racist or 2018-racist (Kirby's american indian feathered headgear, here's a freebie example so you can expose Sakurai's abject racism), for faux-retro indie games to replace them one outrage at a time.

I've played Gekisha Boy and honestly I'd agree, it's pretty insensitive. They hung the black community's dirty laundry out to dry in something played for laughs. That's pretty provocative and ribald coming from a country that understands very little about black people, let alone Americans

>ganguro not blackface
Yet she looks exactly like a depiction of blackface, therefore exactly as offensive. If your father had just died and I asked you "How's your dad?", I would be expected to apologize/acknowledge my mistake even though I had no ill intentions.

>Harvest Moon is "homophobic"
Not allowing gay marriage is homophobia, both in game and real life. Unintentional "homophobia" is still homophobia. Especially in a game where marriage is such an important event/goal. Harvest Moon is an old series sure, but where's the gay option in Trio of Towns? Is that not enough time to add (or just not remove) such a feature? If people are supporting the "progressive" alternative then it's probably time to stop with the "muh conservative buyers" excuse.

>Kamitani so poor mwaaaaa
Fucking hell, you're not even trying anymore. Can we start excusing our actions by saying we're poor, is that it? Or was it out of poverty that he made (and sketched) that homophobic remark? (Granted, the journalist was being an ass but he's a CEO for fuck's sake) With such a nice excuse, maybe poverty "is more to his liking?" I mean, the sexualization even hurts some of his designs, like the DD female ghosts in Odin Sphere, what in the fuck was that? One of the biggest examples of how to break immersion I can think of. It was like playing my own sexual fantasy when I was 12.

What a dumb analogy. Apologizing to an individual isn't the same as apologizing to a collective, and for something made up after the fact no less.

>Unintentional "homophobia" is still homophobia

First off, you don't apologize for something that is not your fault. It is not my responsibility to keep up with YOUR bullshit, I have my own life to keep tabs on than you.

Second, blackface requires the specific context of "Look at these silly nigger folk".

Third, don't you think it's just a bit on the asshole side to pressure someone into a homosexual marriage when they're straight? If a small town doesn't have any gay people, that's fine, and even if they did who's to say they're even interested in you in the first place?

>> No.4817013 [DELETED] 


>How's your dad
Except, that's a very personal to the hypothetical anon, which is why you apologize. blackface is something no one alive has lived thru or should be concerned about in the original context. It should be understood as a caricature. If we apologized for all kinds of things not really personal or close to heart, then I guess we should all be hating Germany, Austria, Hungary to this day for the two world wars.

Disregard the "phobia" part as it's absurd, bc I assume no one is really afraid of gay people; Being unintentionally "homophobic" is impossible. If "homophobia" is to be understood as the parallel to being racist - but within the realm of sexuality, then you can't be homophobic without intent. Racism implies intent. Its a matter of opportunity and not outcome. For example if two people apply to a job at your place one gay one straight and you dont know their sexuality all you know is what they say in their CV and you see the straight guy is clearly more qualified and hire him based off this alone - by your own logic we can call you homophobic because you didn't hire the homosexual kid. Since you know - intent doesn't matter and all. Even taking it a step closer to reality makes 0 sense. Lets say you knew their sexualities. And you still hire the straight guy simply because he wrote "software junior developer 2yrs experience" on his paper and the gay dude said "janitor 4yrs" and you are hiring for a medior developer in software. You knew the other dude was homosexual and u didnt hire him. Homophobic much? see how stupid this is? you make no sense.

>jinx's ganguro we'll pretend is blackface despite the japanese name and context
so it wasn't stifling your beloved "conversations".
if anything it was more ontopic than your ad hominem saltiness.
not serious examples? nintendo cuts them today from their refurbished roms.

if OP chose that picture as an example of utter racism (knowing the game and the developers background it's even more ridiculous), then for his youtube video he should be able to conjure better "2018-valid" examples easily even out of Mario's shy-guys or goombas or cartoon figures covered in soot after an explosion and he doesn't need my help... IF he wants to put in the effort to earn those outrage clicks.

it's no secret this board is frequented by defenders of indie trash and e-celebs, and here it's more transparent.
