[Twitter] Oliver Jia: "If you need further proof that the Japanese response to Ghost of Tsushima has been overwhelmingly positive, Famitsu this week awarded it a perfect 40/40 score. It is one of only three Western games in the magazine's history to have achieved this." (twitter.com)
SJWs getting offended on others' behalf is getting so tiresome.
It reminds me of the "controversy" over Scarlett Johansson playing the Major in the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie. Westerners got all offended over it, saying it's whitewashing, erasing Asians, cultural appropriation, etc.
But, someone actually questioned a bunch of people in Japan about it. They pretty much all thought she was a good pick, because she's a good actress, she's attractive, etc.
Plus, the whole thing about GitS was about how disconnected one's soul is from the body when the body can be replaced by a mechanical one (Motoko had even switched bodies multiple times throughout the various manga and anime series). It had even been mentioned how she'd use a "standard issue" body. Which, for all we know, could look "white". At least at one point (in the manga), she had swapped to a male cybernetic body. ... But, that would require them to understand the setting, rather than just whine, wouldn't it?
For those wanting proof, here's the Famitsu review(s) being referenced.
As Oliver continued:
The linked thread on the positive Japanese reception to The Last Samurai (mocked by Western reviewers as cultural appropriation and White Man Savior BS) is also worth a read.
It's almost like they were respectful to someone else's culture and represented it properly while making a kickass piece of media, instead of killing it, skinning it, and wearing the skin like a freakish suit while fucking the skinless corpse violently.
Rian Johnson take notes please.
Well it has been a blast so far. They did a great job.
Shame it’s only for the ps4. Mine broke a few years back (I hardly played it and it still broke) and I’m not all that interested in buying more crap from sony
