When the general media criticizes sexualization in videogames, every gaming website treats them as if they don’t know what they’re talking about and just being sensacionalists using videogames as scapegoats. But a gaming website can dedicate 3 paragraphs to saying the game is offensive because of an outfit and a character’s introduction animation, which, by the way, is actually pretty light in terms of sexual appeal. I would expect better from Polygon, to be honest.
“AN AWARD SHOW OF PEOPLE GETTING UP AND ACCEPTING TROPHIES ON TELEVISION I THINK IS JUST NOT VERY GREAT TV.”
No, that’s just what I personaly want. Can’t speak for the rest of the gaming world. The Oscars manage to have just that alongside funny writing, great hosting, fun sketches. You can do the same with VGX or VGA, whatever you call it. It’s nice having winners announced on the spot, devs walking up the stairs to receive the award and do a speech. This is classic and I don’t think should change. That is not the problem.
What made VGA horrible was that Spike just cares about how much ad time they can sell. When 80% of the show is one huge commercial, then you can’t expect your audience to be happy.
They could have all of those wonderful things they spoke about on the article. Trailer premieres, sneak peaks of new games, interviews with the winners and the actual awards done properly. They just have to understand their audience better and stop with this mentality that gamers want idiodic, childish jokes and “brofist” attitude in the script. Basically, I think they should take the whole thing more seriously. A gaming award show can be classy, informative and fun at the same time. Drop the teenager attitude! Oh and stop hiring celebrities that have nothing to do with games to host these things.
wow…hum..you guys should really change the headline. Maybe that’s what you were going for, but the title make it seem like Xbox One will come with stereo sound only or something like that. I had no clue what I was reading on the article, but I can tell from the comments of much more tech sawy people that it’s really no big deal and you can actually have much better audio withou Dolby.
I’ve been hearing so much about this anime/manga. What is so great about it? (honest question)
