Oh yeah, and also this is apparently becoming an increasingly unpopular take, but I think you should actually be expected to give something a chance before you go after it. Like, if you believe a game is problematic but don’t have any evidence, you should play it before you go after it. Same with movies and albums.

It’s totally okay to hear about something and say it’s not something you’re interested in. But I just think if you’re going to say it bears negative real life implications, you should actually have any evidence to support that fact.
 
(Not you you, granted. You seem okay as far as this goes. But as a recent example, I got someone in a server telling me that Katawa Shoujo is exploitative of people with disabilities and its creators are sickos simply because it’s a game about girls with disabilities. Which is… absolutely wrong.)

Well your athletes up there keeps winning too much medals statistically in the history of the Olympics so I’ve theorised that you guys would think events like this are so boring while we, the third world countries would cry our hearts out in pure joy once we’ve proudly won something that’s pretty hard and rare to achieve.

I feel like people tend to focus more on trying to accuse products of being problematic, while ignoring the actual problems that can occur behind the scenes (crunch, sexual harassment, general abuse, etc).
 
But no, let’s focus on the fact that a character from a 13+ series is wearing a suggestive costume.

I never understand why killing off characters is a bad thing?
 
Because apparently the show or movie or game is ruined if a character gets killed off and i don’t understand. I thought people hate it when characters don’t get killed off (in media such as MCU and Fairy Tail) but when a character is killed off suddenly it’s a problem (with TLOU, GOT and even Voltron, Attack on Titan and Invincible)
 
Heck, even with the controversy against the Bury Your Gays trope, it’s now bad to kill off LGBTQ+ characters regardless of how the story progresses. Thanks a lot, Voltron fanboys. Now you’ll never understand the horrors of war with you crying queerbaiting. And you’re gonna make storytellers play it safe with their characters when they’re gay.

You seem to not realize there is a tactful way to kill characters. Linkara often brings it up when a comic he’s reviewing a comic that has a character die: If their death has meaning to it (other than “anyone can die”), and if they go down fighting and actually do damage, than it gets a pass. If they kill the character for “drama” like Roy Harper’s daughter, it feels shallow and possibly ended that character’s existence in the continuity. A living character has more story opportunities than a dead one. And sometime, they don’t come back. Linkara isn’t afraid to give example of characters in comics who never returned after they died, like his favorite Teen Titan member (who’s name escapes me).

Becuase ost of the time people are mad at a character being killed off, it’s because most of the time they either get killed off as a cheap way to increase “drama2, or they end up being killed in a way which comes across as unceremonious or unfitting.
 
People were mad at Joel dying in TLOU2 becuase they spent the whole first game playing as him and thus they had some sort of emotional/personal connection with him, and seeing him get offed not even halfway through the game by a completely new character that not a lot of people like is obviously not going to make people happy.
 
And as for the “bury your gay” trope, people DO have good reason to be made at that since in fiction, LGBT characters (especially ones made not by people in the LGBT community) have a bad history of constantly being shafted and existing only to be killed off just for a poor attempt at drama, along with the history of the token gay character always being the one to die and not making it to the end of the story.
 
And with the Voltron example, people where mad at it becuase the creators promised that there would be more LGBT representation, they introduced the boyfriend of one of the main characters, only for him to only appear in one episode and then immediately be killed off an episode later just to try and twist the knife and create more “drama” for the main character, which a lot of fans were not happy about sine they felt like they got baited.

But you didn’t know that people get annoyed when nobody dies in Fairy Tail. Same with the MCU pre-Infinity War.
 
Also, if anything this is why people will play it safe if the characters are gay. Only take risks if the character is straight.
 
And nobody dies, regardless of how people get tired of it where the story goes on. Gotcha.

There’s a time and place to kill character, but killing them for “drama” is neither. It doesn’t add drama, just shows that the writers don’t care about the characters enough to give them a fitting fate.

Fairy Tail was more of an example of a media using falseflag Deaths way too often to the point of pissing everyone off

There were actually more deaths in that series than people remember (Mavis, Zeref, all of the Etherious demons, all of the Dragons, Hades, Lucy’s dad, Yuri’s wife, and Zera to name a few), but they did use the falseflag death trope too much, ESPECIALLY in the final arc.

And also, if it wasn’t for the Bury Your Gays trope, then the writers and creators would take risks with their characters rather than playing it safe regardless of the character’s sexual orientation.

I had a moment of pause recently when I realized that the one character to die out of an ensemble I’ve been writing about was also the one black guy in the group.
 
I sort of accidentally blundered into the “black guy dies first” trope.
