First of all, I assume this is the posting everybody is talking about:
https://abload.de/img/1n2xvv.png

So let me get this straight: The above posting states that men are at fault for everything bad. Women are specifically excluded from that accusation. Furthermore, for some reason white men are more at fault than men of minority ethnics. Then the heroine of the game, Aloy, says she wouldn´t want a male baby. And NOW, game journalists seem to have praised this story.

Do you REALLY not see the problem here? Switch the white men with any other ethnic group and what´s written in that posting would be out-called for its racism/sexism/whathaveyou.

If, and only IF, that posting holds any truth, then anybody who´s in favor of equality ought to criticize this game´s story. Or at the very least understand why most people are sick and tired of political agendas being implemented into video games.

That´s all I had to say. Awaiting lots of irrational responses, unfortuantely ...

It's not even accurate. One tribe is matriarchal, but are shown to have their own issues and biases. Other tribes have male leaders. The game doesn't seem to say that one is better than the other. Also, there are women among the villains and bandits that Aloy fights. So that's not accurate either. But Trolls don't care about accuracy, they just want to stir up a a fictional pot.

I very clearly said that I´m asking the topic question in case it IS true. It very well might be complete bs. We should hope it is, right? That´s what is bothering me :)

It is, and you could have done some research. Just posting this nonsense is going to get the trolls started again. None of these trolls offer any evidence, and gameplay videos and such show opposite to what they are claiming.

How could there be evidence when the game hasn´t been released, yet? Preview-videos can only show so much.

Tbh with you: I´m 90% sure that this rumor is pure bs. However, it´s due to the current political climate that it cannot dismissed without any oppositon. So let´s wait until we have real evidence, will we?

Until then I´m still interested: Why would anyone defend content such as depicted in the rumor? It´s racist and sexist to the max. Or did certain people convince themselves that you cannot be racist/sexist towards white men? geezus.

There are full gameplay streams out there. They don't show what the trolls claim they show.
