john garvinco-director of days gone and screenwriter of Uncharted: The Golden Abyss and various games in the series Siphon Filterhas gone through Twitter (goes VGC) to criticize the journalists who analyzed the open world game for PS4, alleging that the mixed marks that the title had (it has a 71 in Metacritic) are due to the technical problems they run into, to some critics did not end the game, as many other “analysts woke“ they did not get along with the protagonist and his motivations.
With woke refers to a Anglo-Saxon term referring to those people concerned about social injustices such as racism and machismo, but in recent times it has been used pejoratively by the extreme right to qualify those of progressive ideas.
“Three reasons,” says Garvin when responding on the social network to a player who says he does not understand why the game was not “universally acclaimed by critics.” “1. Had technical problems like bugsloading textures and frame rate. 2. He had analysts who didn’t bother to actually play the game. And three, he had analysts woke that They couldn’t deal with a rough white biker staring at his date’s ass.“.
Numerous users of the social network have responded by commenting that other games with white protagonists have had good reviewsWhat Grand Theft Auto, god of war, dying light Y The Last of Us. Others remind you that red dead redemption 2which came out a few months, has a 97 in Metacritic.
John, come on. There are more gracious ways to move on from the feeling that critics got it wrong. Its fine not to get universal praise.
Condemning a fictional “woke” mob is an outdated tactic used exclusively by out of touch old dudes on Fox News. It means nothing here. Mitch Dyer (@MitchyD) December 7, 2022

Damn a group woke make-believe is an outdated tactic used only by old men out of touch with reality in [Fox News. No significa nada aqu”.
