I think its reached a point where people simply shouldnt buy EA games. They clearly have no respect for their customers.

I don't know how people can buy the fifa games for example with a straight face, I saw one of the fifa games on the shelf in GAME for 10p.......10p! Worthless fucking rubbish, you can't even buy a chocolate bar for that.

While EA is definitely the epitome of evil within the video game industry, they aren't entirely at fault for BFV. They are at fault in the sense that they refused to give DICE more time to work on the game by delaying it a few months so that they could get their Christmas sales, and of course micro-transactions. The rest of it is still on DICE.

It's the same thing with WWE games. Everyone blames 2K if they feel that the game sucks, but it's actually Yukes that makes the game.

Having only owned the game for a week I've yet to see any of these issues mentioned. Granted I spent half the week playing the single player so yeah.

EA have almost become to big to even care about things it seems. I haven't bought a FIFA game since 16 for example as each year was basically just a squad and kit update which could ha e been done with DLC or even a patch.

There absolutely are some people who won't buy it, if you play as a woman. Just like there are some people who won't buy it, if you play as a black guy.

I still play Left 4 Dead, and I've certainly noticed how many people leave the game lobby if they're forced to play as Louis (the black guy). They aren't fooling anyone. What's actually happening is, they don't want their friends and family to see them playing as the black guy.

And ultimately, this comes down to something else. Something a little more than a video game. It comes down to the player, or their family, or their friends either not liking blacks, or preferring whites. Like I said, they aren't fooling anyone. It is still discrimination.

Battlefield V has a woman on the cover, and I definitely believe some guys won't buy it due to that fact alone. Because they would be embarrassed if their friends saw them buy it. Like I said, there are definitely people out there who think like that. Some people are afraid their friends, family, etc, would make some kind of joke about a woman, a black guy, etc, being on the cover of their game.

OR, maybe people just don't want to buy it because the game is awful from all the points I've mentioned. It isn't about gender or race, it's about quality.

Tomb Raider is extremely popular, and you know what? It's mostly men that play it. They obviously don't care that they are playing as a badass British woman.

Battlefield 1 was highly commended, even though the cover of the game and opening prologue has you playing as a black guy. Hardly anyone cared, because the Harlem Hellfighters were an actual thing to the war.

The Walking Dead Telltale game was very much liked by players, when in season 1 you play as a black guy, and season 2 you play as a 10 year old girl.
So you see, it's not always about race/gender. Maybe there are close-minded people out there that refuse to play as a non-white protagonist, but it isn't as common as you think. Again, quality over bullshit propaganda like BFV threw at us.

I'm quite happy to say I won't buy a game where I'd be forced to play as a split arse to suit some soyboys leftwing cuck agenda. They might aswell come with a free chastity cage. Something tells me you've got several already though.
