DA:O isn't bad. People are experiencing some kind of cognitive whatever because sequels turned out to be (allegedly) absolute mess. Combats were far too easy and one of the major plot points was pretty retarded (you either choose a good choice or a bad choice, it's not a choice!) but overall not that bad. At least better than NWN1's official campaign.

Two corrections: Dragon Age was never good and it's not KotoR gameplay but Baldur's Gate gameplay.
Nah it's closer to Kotor. Kotor and DA were both designed with home consoles and gamepads in mind, BG's design is much closer to PC strategy games where mouse is quite essential.

I wish the Get Woke, Go Broke meme were real. MK11 practically has every female character wrapped up in burkas and shao kahn spouting "make outworld great again!" because fuck appealing to straight guys and le orange man bad. And of course, what do you know, it's the best selling launch in the whole franchise because gamers are basically heroin junkies at this point and nothings gonna keep them from their latest dopamine surge. Get Woke, Go Broke is cope of the highest order.

Not really.

See, it's not about individual sales of a single game. That helps the meme but it's not the only factor. Dragon Age Inquisition sold very well according to the publishers.

BUT!...

When was the last dragon age game? What's the feeling on the franchise from gaymers? How many people are clamoring for a new dragon age, new halo or new MK after this one?

A LOT of people are shitting on MK11 btw. It's selling well but it's taking a big hit on its reputation. This is something e-celebs and big corporations don't understand. It's not about whether or not you made big money in the short term. We're talking about branding here. Resident Evil would have been stone cold dead if RE7 and RE2 remake hadn't been received well.

Sometimes bad feeling towards a franchise has a delayed effect where you don't see it on THAT game, but on the next one. The woke game itself might sell well, but it has a knock-on effect for the franchise's future. I mentioned Wokenstein: The New Goyim and that's a franchise that went woke as fuck and sold poorly, at least on PC

Even Cucktaku have to rationalize why it didn't sell and they conclude it was in part due to how woke the game was.

Part of the problem with "get woke, go broke" is a lot of these games do not have public-facing sales figures. The companies keep that shit quiet. So we either go by leaks or make assumptions based on how well the franchise seems to be doing. It sounds like Inquisition itself sold well, but the lack of any new games in that franchise makes me super suspicious. Mass Effect was killed by Andromeda being so bad.

Nice try but she's had a burka since MK9

She also has "boob window" outfits as well in MK11. Not trying to defend the games choices but that hill to die on isn't it chief.

The Redditor and the mudshark and fools. All that matters in gayming is raw sales numbers. The loss of reputation means nothing when your customer base consists solely of children and manchildren with aspergers and their parents.

Loss of rep leads to lower sales numbers in the long term, or maybe you haven't heard of a little game called fallout 76

Probable 20 million dollar loss at least.

Gaymers are like """"victims"""" of domestic violence or rape. They just keep coming back, even if they don't like it (they do.) Do you keep touching hot stoves? Are your hands as burnt as the whores you thirst for?

The fact that you pay money for games at all is bad enough.

Not all gamers. How long can those that btfo for good be replaced by new customers (who may or may not be buying this burely for virtue-signaling purposes)?
