so Bioware sent me a survey...when I answered "zero" on the first question it asked "why?" here goes.
Bioware needs to put down the preachiness on the radical leftist agenda a bit and concentrate on appeasing the people who actually buy your game. I bought three copies of the original Mass Effect for my family of 3 because I felt it was a nice new IP with a decent space theme and I bought two copies of the 2d ME because BW insisted on injecting leftist drivel in ever increasing intensity into the story. I wound up buying one copy of ME3 b/c it was then decided that what the fanbase really deserved was a gigantic neo-luddite middle finger at human progress.
I initially was not going to bother with ME:Andromeda but I decided to roll the dice and in so doing I idiotically volunteered to subject myself to funhouse animations that looked like silly putty had been made animated like some supple Pinocchio and the same preening of the liberal agenda again. My wife and son watched me play the thus far 14 or so hours and went "meh" so congrats your high-fiving each other by focusing more on politically correct lunacy over high quality graphics, content, and a refined combat system have probably turned us against this IP and any further Bioware titles for the foreseeable future.
Did you notice that despite your inclusion of transgendered characters the TG activists were *still* not satisfied as evidenced by your company having to grovel to a reader on the "sin" of a TG having admitted that their birth gender was not their current one?
Wouldn't it have been refreshing to have invested that time and effort you exerted towards mollycoddling .01% of the general population into having a more effective simulation of the necessary industry and economy the stated mission would require?
Ah well I am certain the problem must be in *me* the fan who spent ~500 bucks on your franchise and not an activist who does not realize how many people in your fanbase you have already alienated.https://twitter.com/bioware/status/849671752192077828
That tweet looks insane to a lot of people.
I wish your company no harm, I sincerely hope that perhaps in placating the .1% you have stumbled upon the path to maximizing your company's financials.....
I just know it will no longer include my revenue stream, period.
