I'm not sure if you are aware of that Rags, that part didnt make it quite clear 22:12
OPFOR stands for Opposing Force. By this time you probably alredy know this or you did know it all along and it just came around weired in the video but better safe then sorry.

Rags, with your discussion with cultural perspectives on Native Americans, that reminds me of F-Zero GP Legend where a Native American character pilots a F-Zero machine called the "Wind Walker." Basically in Japan it was called "Crazy Horse," and America changed it to the "Wind Walker" because they thought it was racially insensitive (Really?) Personally I feel like the Crazy Horse name is better than the Wind Walker.

depicting an asian as a bad driver in america is stereotyping. depicting anyone in traditional clothing is not. he just hates whites. fkn sick and tired of all this sjw bull.

What does a jacksepticeye goat simulator video have to do with native Americans being blamed for surreal shit? In goat simulator, you're a goat who can do the weird shit you can do because video games, and it's not about the woman he had flopping around there, she was white, not native American

Ok , i liked your video but i disagree with you on AC3. Connor feels more like someone you could trust and also a more relateable .(Ezio always seemed to me obnoxcious and just to much of a disney prince . Plus the game got on my good side for being kind of like an east german western (they would have storys about how some asshole cowboys fucked over some indians and then the indians would get their revenge(best example is "Apachen" from 1973(skip through it if you have the time)))

the witcher 3 literally nails every aspect of polish mythology dead on... yet they call it racist for having only white people when that is culturally true... WTF? so whats more important, cultural realism or diversity?

We need more developers that were alive in the 1600's, because I am literally shaking regarding the amount of developers making games from around that era. Also, the Romans totally culturally appropriated the ancient Greeks. How dare they preserve so much art and science!

The Arabic sign literally says "Iraqi Border 70km", the sign to the left of it, I can't tell. It definitely isn't Arabic, that first letter is completely unknown to me, but it could be Urdu or Farsi, really depends on where 70km from the border it is. I'd be willing to bet it's correct.

Cultural Appropriation is an ultra-racist term meant to divide people into "us" and "the disgusting others."

For one, culture is innately shareable. There isn't a single culture today which has not borrowed from another culture. Therefore, if something is innately shared, it cannot be stolen. Culture isn't an item... if one person starts to eat feta cheese, they are not stopping me, a Greek person, from also eating feta cheese.

Of course a Japanese game developer isn't going to get absolutely everything about one of the European cultures right in a game, and of course a Polish game developers isn't going to nail every single detail about Native American culture. So fucking what?

The alternative is that European and Native American cultures just aren't represented in games at all. If people are going to whine about every little detail the game developers are just going to stop even trying to include your people. It's not going to worth the effort for them since they're never going to get everything right so people will keep bitching.

And what is with the whiners always just assuming that "appropriation" (Which it isn't in the first place. It's just sharing. Appropriation involves actually taking something away from people. White guy wearing a headdress doesn't prevent a Native American from also going it so it isn't appropriation.) is done for "evil" reasons. When kids dress up as a Native American it's not to mock the Native Americans ffs. It's because they find them cool. It's appreciation and them wanting to be cool like the Native Americans. It's the exact same as with vikings, knights, superheroes etc. People find them cool so they want to be one themselves. It's in no way mocking anyone.

"cultures you don't belong to." Saying to someone they don't belong to that culture based on a persons heritage or skin color comes off as very xenophobic and nationalistic. Traditions are stupid and the idea of culture ownership needs to die. 17:57 Are you fucking kidding me, unless they are portraying gay people as deviant child molesters I don't want to hear any complaints about stereotypes outside of an artistic examination not a fucking agenda. Gotta love how people like us can figure this shit out and call out people way above our prestige and pay grade of how stupid they are.23:19 you know it's fun to point this out in reviews and commentary but beyond that who gives a fuck. 25:25 complains about native american stereotypes and yet we have natives
still practicing their shaman beliefs in town hall meetings and shit. Of course no one no fucking one of consequence thinks all natives etc. are alike. The only racists we have are part of trumps administration example the attorney general was a KKK member, there is your real racist but no, lets focus on entertainment and media, much more important then the ones that run the country most of us live in. 50:00 and there we have the inevitable double standard.
Also the ad before this video was about not letting your dogs have "british teeth" what If I had a commercial about not letting your dogs have "african hair" or some shit.

my family is from Pakistan and I've spent an entire summer in Karachi once and I did not care about the language thing let's be 100% honest most signs are written in English, Arabic, or on rare occasions Urdu plus I was more offended by the poor portrayal of the city itself as it's pretty much a port town with a huge market and they made it look like generic Pakistani city number 1 but even then I didn't care because it's a video game... also just a side note I hope your being sarcastic about the Islam thing

My school showed a video by this guy explaining the History of monopoly during a community service session. He basically turned it into: Charles Darrow stole the idea of monopoly from a Socialist board game by an old lady because he was an evil capitalist and he wanted to silence Socialism. Oh yeah and Socialism rules.

As a German, I was deeply offended by his stupidity displayed at 21:04. Holy fucking hell. What a retard.
For a native English speaker who probably hasn't heard all too much German in his life, your pronounciation was alright by the way. The way the languages feel while being spoken are incredibly interestingly different, that's why Germans frequently butcher the English language as well. :)

@22:20 Don't know if it was said or not, but OpFor is actually a military term for training simulations where one platoon still trains as if they're US Soldiers and the other would train as an insurgent, to help you get into the mindset of a terrorist's wait then run and gun tactics. (Usually just by turning their uniforms inside out and you shoot each other with chalk rounds). Depending on if you're just training at, say, Fort Sill and you're training in a bunch of shipping containers to be a tiny village or it's built up like the NTC (National Training Center). There you will get 1:1 models of locations you would see while deployed. All OpFor literally means is Opposing Force.
With this context in mind, the multiplayer isn't even about America vs Middle Easterners. It's still a training simulation of Americans training against other Americans. Just like what's actually going down with the people holding the controllers. The Multiplayer has no story line. And shy of the Arabic that the OpFor speak (most interpreters for the US Military use Arabic because it's more widely spoken instead of having a specific interpreter for each and every tribal dialect) and the "uniforms" (which is pretty sloppily thrown on, just like anyone with a vague understanding would)- there is nothing that even ties them to being not apart of a training simulation.
Source: I just wrote a specific three letter combination that just sent a wave of dread among all the other veterans and service members reading.

It just cracked me up.)

Giving Dark Souls to a 12 year old is actually not a good thing. It makes them learn what failing tastes like, what being in an unforgiving world is, what "meritocracy" means and it makes them learn to get back up each time they're thrown down, rather than run away and hide in one of those "safespace" hoping for the world to change just for them to feel "secure".
Giving Dark Souls to a 12 is in fact the best way to prevent him/her from being a SJW !

sorry you are so pathetic you have mock someone because they highlight the fact that game devs get a whole languages wrong? when all they have to do is hirer an expert. in fact you whole point is so typically America, naive and xenophobic. language is at the cornerstone of all cultures. Lets put it this way how would you feel if someone subtitled your videos and made you love what this guy is saying or how you think Ashley Judd from the other week is 100% correct. You would hate it, it goes against everything you stand for and misrepresents. That is why getting a language is important. While you cant read squiggly lines hate to break it to you, you are just one unimportant gamer in a huge world who plays game. There are heaps of players AMERICANS who can read those lines. The french language is far more interesting, complex than the American language. Hell the whole French culture and country is better than anything America has to offer. If you can even respect others why the F should you expect people to respect you?

Автор byghostlight0 ( назад)
11:10 you miss a HUGE point it is not suddenly bad. It has always been bad but back then it was done through conquest. It was done through violence and oppression, whats the most oppression you face in a day listening to someone get upset because they saw their culture misused for your amusement and dont have the balls to understand or respect why they are upset. Roman's used cultural appropriation as a way of dominating through 'peace', that is pretty much how the Celtic world ended and how our world got much of what we do today, They borrowed and manipulated, to control and oppress through 'peace'
