@revolve: Well if you look at bayo 2 reviews, everyone gives it oodles of praise for being a mechanically deep and fun action game, but then there's polygon marking it down because they think the absurdly over-the-top character is too over-the-top for them in a very specific way.
This is the thing that bothers me because instead of looking at a game based on it's gameplay, you bring in your own assumptions on what the character is, and start seeing things that may or may no really there. This is why I tend to disagree with a lot of anita's tropes vs. women videos.
I am all for anyone making games. Any kind of person. You want to make a game and I'll probably want to play it.
But if this attitude becomes popular at more media outlets, then you have developers who can't make a game a certain way because of scores. As much as I wish it didn't, scores mean sales and bonuses for the devs. This kind of thing is a slippery slope to censoring absurd and parody characters, like Bayonetta or GTA protagonists, and stopping people from making the games that they want to.
