      The coomer in me wants left, but I know deep down that the right would've been far more entertaining. Shaniquas can be quite funny, from a distance.

      The deep south is very black in many areas, so it makes perfect sense. Rochelle is such a shit char thoughbiet. So shit, it kinda rolled back around into being funny because we constantly make fun of whoever gets stuck playing as her.

      As if modern Ganker cares about whether it makes sense for darkies to be there. They cried about brown people being in Far Cry 6 for christ's sake

        Simply this, stop making those stupid "what if it was launched today...." BS threads, back then there was no game devs pushing an agenda into the games they were playing because gaming companies didn't hire activists to make their makes. If it was launched today, in the current political climate, it would 100% be woke.

    Didn't care they were black, I was disappointed they were barely characters. Rochelle just says random quips and never says anything interesting or knowledgeable. The fat guy loves food, big whoop.

    Ignoring the fact that these characters are well written and soulful, it also has two white male leads. The problem for most reasonable people who are against woke-ism isn't that there are black characters, it's that they replace white characters, or are clearly just shoe-horned in. If you keep a balance of still having white males in among all the women/people of colour, you don't end up alienating the white male part of the audience, which is still the majority whether the San Franciscans want to admit this or not.

    Perhaps Ganker would knee-jerk against L4D2's cast in this day and age, but would soon come to recognize it as a welcome return to form.

    I liked Coach but felt that the Nigress was tacked on because they needed a woman and she was not well done. Of 8 characters, 7 were good so I'd call that a win overall.

    Like others said, only Rochelle sucks, and she's the only female survivor for L4D2 campaigns. A zombie game or movie without a cute female protagonist is a sin.

    Some people would probably call woke, and they would be right in the sense that the well has been poisoned. Something that is genuine and earnest gets seen with the same suspicion as the cynically pandering, and for good reason. It is amazing how autists cannot fathom this concept, but my guess is it has to do with their struggle to connect abstract concepts. Maybe it will help you to think of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf," and remember the point of the story is that sometimes the wolf is real, but once the well is poisoned good luck convincing people; in this case it would be, "The Boy Who Cried Not Woke," but once bitten twice shy, no one is going to believe it.

    It would 100 percent be shitposted to death alot of Ganker's old games wouldnt make it today because people dont give new ip's much of a chance unless they hit it out the park. Like Dragons Dogma if made by anyone other than Itsuno came out today would be laughed at and never get a sequel.

    It always depends on the context. Is it forced? Or are they normal people and not being used as loxist weapons to destroy White values.

    Pretty simple.

      woke has nothing to do with why suicide squad or saints row sucked. It's because both were low effort garbage. What exactly would be improved by making deadshot white or making harley super straight?

          Who specifically are you talking about? I would think the real issues were the stopping and restarting of development and the studio being forced to develop the content around a battlepass system, Remember this game was canceled multiple times only for development to then, presumably, start from scratch

        Has everything to do with why the entire industry is collapsing. Woke DEI hires and ESG funding = low effort trash.

    People get Black person fatigue cause it's forced, these nogs are in the deep south which is full of them. Also they didn't give her ultra Black person powers or him ultra Black person strength so it's fine.

    Coach was pretty much the only fleshed out character for the reveal trailer, but he has such an absurd introduction in the intro trailer that Ganker would have loved him.
    >WAIT MY ASS *eats candybar*
    >"THIS USED TO BE A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD"
    >the stairs scene
    >saving Ellis with the chainsaw
    Obviously there'd be jokes about him being the one to break into the abandoned shop and shit, but Coach was pretty based right off the bat.
