Did you not play the first game? Did you not see any videos for this one? I don't understand why there's this backlash with the game's sense of humor (other than because yo the internet is the internet). If you don't like it that's your thing, but where did all of these unrealistic expectations come from? All of this complaining just makes me think of stereotypical wine and gourmet food snobs. Cheeseburgers are good too, damn it.
Edit from a later post that will get buried: As for the whole memes and internet jokes, they're a tiny fraction of the game. The blowback is disproportionate, but that's how it is on the internet I guess. I see why lots of people wouldn't be into that, but I just find the amount of hate super silly.
