Keep the reality in reality
Would it be too much to ask to put the escapism back in the fantasy and leave reality for the uggos?
No one wants to play as Thunderchunk McUglyface. I don't care if it's not representative of real life. It's fake, it's not real, and I want the fantasy characters back in the fantasy. The whole point of escapism is to escape from real life for awhile.
Back when nerds made games for nerds there was big sweaty musclebound men wearing next to nothing carrying big swords, just as often as there was big titted women wearing next to nothing carrying big swords. And no one cared.
Now suddenly it's an issue and all games have to have people that look like dogshit everywhere, or we're all bad people. And I'm tired of it.
