It's not enough that you just say "I don't like this kind of gameplay, wish it was different" No, you have to tie to some virtuous cause. Actually nintendo is evil and sexist because they didn't make the palette swap zelda game you wanted and that's the objective truth. -- It's because their entire pursuit of "virtue" is as a way to get around tolerating different opinions. If you don't like something I like I'd be the baddie if I harangued you and accused you of things for having a different opinion from me. But if the reasons you don't like it are suspect for ideological and moral reasons, well, now you're the baddie. And all good people now have a duty to support me and destroy your immoral ways. (Or they're showing their asses.) -- i was talking to my girlfriend about this phenomenon the other day. I feel like it’s a direct outgrowth from the 10-15-years-ago-fashionable talking point of “well, if it’s not hurting anyone, why do you care?”. And this was used in leftist spaces to justify…well, basically everything you can imagine. The unexpected effect this had in left-leaning spaces is that now you couldn’t discuss ANYTHING on relative terms. If you just dislike something because of universal, ineffable human caprice, well, you’re bad for saying so…UNLESS you’re being Harmed. So now we (and by we I mean they) have to dress up every fucking benign difference of opinion with Harm.  “I don’t like Zelda’s object based gameplay because it is clearly made by men who think women are holes!” Does it make sense? No. But if you’re gonna take issue with a game, you gotta come correct with whatever moral infraction you can grasp onto, no matter how tenuous.
