      You can just say DEI and it covers all those points because game mechanics being shit is because of diversity quotas, the writing being shit is because of diversity again.
      The same studio made good or even great games before DEI shit and """consulting""" companies were added in to frick it all up. What's new? DEI garbage.

    Turning what might have started life as a singleplayer Superman game into a fricking live-service Suicide Squad game

    Absolutely awful writing and character dialogue, from the baffling choice of anti-hero squad to even most npc jabber

    Forcing Rocksteady to develop something wildly outside of their typical experience so they could cash in on a fad that was already on the way out

    Fake controversy over the Sweetbaby consultancy firm staged and propped up by seething Gamergate era Youtubers. Sweetbaby gets credit where credit is due, they shut the frick up after the whole Steam group thing caused by that one numale on Twitter and they've generated nothing new to talk about since

    Like the other guy says this game was just destined to be horrible and there was nothing to really do about it but let Warner Bros. reap the turds they made sure were festering

      Its funny that the entire sweetbaby shit wouldn't have even happened if the one Black person on their team didnt literally instigate shit first by getting mad at a literally who steam group that nobody knew or cared about.

        The takeaway was that everyone involved on both sides was a fricking idiot for me, since the BR that started the group would later go on and try to hustle a developer into giving him a review copy and interrogating parts of the dev team to make sure they weren't woke

      Pfff. No they didn't. The controversy wouldn't have been one if the sweetbaby dipshits actually decided to shut the frick up. Instead they decided to not only comment on the group but try to dox and get the man who made it banned for wrong think. They persistently had multiple dumbasses from their company come out of the woodwork to defend the other butthole, showcase multiple other companies that do the exact same shit they do, and make buttholes out of themselves. It would have been received the same as the anti-Denuvo group
      All they had to do was ignore the group and nobody right now would know that DEI is all over the fricking industry.

    Same problem as usual with woke writing, the game had no identity, the writers clearly had no creative direction other than a vague plot outline and their DEI requirements. It was basically a woke public service message with generic looter shooter gameplay.
    >Game where you play as villains but they don't actually do anything evil. What's even the purpose of playing an anti-hero at that point? They're presented as more stupid than evil.

    >Fights and characters don't have any build up or emotional stakes, neither do the deaths. Compare this with Injustice that had decent writing and it's not even close.
    >Wonder Woman feminist self insert is the only character who isn't presented as a total loser and of course is too important of a female role model to get killed and pissed on like the rest of the Justice League.
