how is is not valid to want your game to be historically accurate if that’s what you’re aiming for in the first place? that’s the most retarded thing i ever heard
I didn’t say it wasn’t valid, just that the criticism of it was also valid. Plus I bet you’ve heard at least 10 things more retarded than that, minimum
I find it hard to believe that it’s valid criticism, if their stated intent was to be historically accurate. Unless they outright came out to say “We don’t want no black folk in our game, white power!” then I doubt it’s like, some nutty excuse to keep colored folk out of their game
Maybe it would be nice to like, have a game exploring some cool knight who happened to be black and challenged the status quo of the time, or some shit like that, but is this really the appropriate game for that? It would probably have to be a whole game about it
part of the problem is that the people defending medievalpoc swear up and down that people of color lived all over Europe in all time periods, and nobody thought anything about it, so a game that draws attention to the uniqueness of blackness would also be really problematic to them
so wait, you mean to tell me the kind of people that are likely to bitch about something like “POC” and “white supremacy” will literally never be happy with what you do, even if you do exactly what they tell you?
i’ll alert the BBC
