Meta Polarity Mega Discussion
Vicious Syndicate Article
-->I feel like there’s a lot of talk recently where people are assuming that everyone else feels the same way they do, enjoys exactly what they enjoy and so what is ‘wrong’ with the game is objectively wrong to everyone. Like it’s an obvious puzzle that’s been solved and team 5 is oblivious or ignoring it or being condescending.
-->All the discussion forums available resemble echo chambers of like-minded folks agreeing with each other & solidifying each other’s views. This ignores the possibility that an entire % of the player base may not feel that way or have the voice to do so. This is compounded on the issue that it’s increasingly difficult to speak up and disagree without getting shouted out.
-->I don’t like the pervading attitude that players think they could design better than the devs. That with a minimum amount of information and strong feelings they are certain no matter how many times they’ve been proven wrong, that they could do better. It smacks of arrogance paired with ignorance. Feelings outside of the game are bleeding into the games we play and how we feel, talk and play them.
