    There certainly are plenty of fakers out there who are in the gaming space purely to push their political agendas. But are you referring to johnny? As far as I can tell he is a real gamer who likes games. He never claimed to have any serious investment in the Duke Nukem character or franchise. Nothing wrong with that. He came to the forum after playing Alien Armageddon. It's possible to like games and also be passionate about politics/social justice and not be a fraud or "simulacrum". Just saying.


    "Simulacrum"? Pfffh... What is this, Marathon? :rolleyes:

    Joking aside, I am quite confused by your use of the term "pasteurisation". Is it supposed to be a good thing or a bad thing? I know it is literally a food processing technique to make products last longer and reduce the risk of food poisoning, but it is the first time I have ever seen someone use the word figuratively. Do you not mean "sanitisation" here? :huh:

    Many of their "solutions" are not pragmatic, not based on science and highly political in nature.


    They are, actually. Even the US Military is now taking climate change very seriously and has to adapt both its methods and technology consequently to prevent disastrous loss of installations, equipment and most importantly human lives. That is what happens when you have military bases all across the world and must operate in conditions that climate-denying politicians, lobbyists and commentators will never have to experience as part of their job - at least nowhere near to the same extent...

    Also, when has "political" become such a negative term? People have been complaining about video games being "political" a lot lately - as if video games used to be a natural occurrence and not the result of a series of conscious design decisions by people with beliefs of their own - and now, even caring about humanity's future is considered too "political"? Seriously?

    Making Duke Nukem to be a first-person shooter where violent combat is the sole method of conflict resolution is just as political - whether it is "intentional" or not is irrelevant, as the result is the same - as making a game where conflicts are resolved through non-violent actions (e.g. talking, stealth, trading, etc.); likewise, rethinking our society and economy so that the environmental impact of our activities are drastically diminished is just as political as refusing to change anything by actively investing in dying unsustainable industries and sabotaging any serious attempt to come up with an alternative.

    And before any of you gets defensive, no, I am not equating Duke Nukem to a clear existential threat like climate change nor am I implying that violent first-person shooters are somehow wrong. I am just trying to illustrate how these two are just as political as their allegedly "political" alternatives.

    For some reason, I also cannot help but be reminded of Duke Nukem whenever I look at Coach John McGuirk from Home Movies.

    Nansci makes what is intended to be a moderate, inoffensive statement, but in doing so uses what johnny regards as a bad word and gets a lecture from johnny.


    Because nothing says "moderate, inoffensive statement" quite like using a deliberately offensive term coined by a misogynistic shock jock that conflates feminism to Nazism and then proceeding to gratuitously insult me by insinuating that I am just as bad as some bona fide misogynistic gamer who did not like that women worked on Duke Nukem Forever! :rolleyes:

    You do realise that "feminazism" is in itself a misogynistic term, right? I mean, it was coined by Rush Limbaugh of all people in a tirade against women having control over their own body. :mellow:

    Also, the actual Nazis really did not like feminism, not just because it was going against their traditionalist conservative agenda, but also because they thought it was the Jews' doing...
