BL3 Went full Leftist, so many subliminal leftist agendas in the campaign

Is this really new information? Whether or not I see the same thing you do, I kind of think that it’s very difficult to separate a work of fiction from the political beliefs and views of the creators, and I believe that most folks want to believe that any creative work has an ulterior motive. You could make an argument about any number of things being political. For example, “Jack and Jill is a story about how late capitalism can only lead to the disastrous fall of the society that champions it.” We can always find meaning when we look for it, whether its presence is intended or not.

Or it’s just political and social satire. There doesn’t have to be an implied agenda, even thought it’s quite possible for any outside observer to infer one.

Slag is definitely part of a radical environmentalist agenda!

And don’t get me started on how the vast quantity of guns is a clever double bluff against the Second Amendment.

Maybe because I am a lefty SJW beta male, but when I noticed the game was lead by females I just assumed because it was a story about sirens that are a rare breed of magical women (even though if you ask me all women are magical), that is made sense that there were more women than normal leading the story.

So kind of the opposite of the (Saudi?) government awards for promoting women in the workplace that all went to the men leading the winning government ministries?

Sometimes I think video games actually make more sense than the real world.

Maybe that’s what the missing guns in bank glitch is all about.

Its not a glitch, it was a test to see how the right would react to having their guns taken away.

Maybe Dicks sporting goods sponsored this game?

Not to mention the perils of GMOs and scientific experimentation without ethics review boards.

Yes, because the 2020 elections will be decided by a few gamers. Gamers, mind you, that were subliminally influenced to vote for a leftist female candidate, because the males in BL3 aren’t depicted as capable…

What else is new?
Well, should Daniel Traunt enter the race for presidency of the US, I won’t vote for him, because BL3 clearly showed he’s a bad guy. Don’t vote Traunt!

And now, back to our scheduled program…

The last DLC for borderlands 2 was really a tale of GMO’s without ethical oversight

Not to mention Claptrap units. If ever there was a case for putting the breaks on AI research grants.

I’d hazard it’s a socialist attempt to benefit the door openers’ union.

I really enjoyed going back for that last free DLC (mainly to play with all those extra skill points of course) but I had been away a while and it hooked me back for fair bit.
