I have a theory that since most of these game studios are in California (and that being the sodomite capitol of the world r/n -- by far) that so much wokeness has entered by way of femshits, soygoys, troons, and other literal cocksuckers -- along with token browns -- that the IQ level within the studios has degraded to the point of being unsustainable for great new content.
Add to that the increasing flight of the most talented pool of devs (that is, White males) from there and you have a formula where literally all the studios can do today is scarf off what little talent remains (ie, lighting); running a kindergarten class for the rest where all they expect of the woke staff is to 'stay inside the lines!'. That is, do only numakes with lots of brown paint-by-numbers.
Am I just imagining this happening? I haven't been in the industry for about 15 yrs now, and where I was at it was almost all White men, with literally 1 token female, and 1 token cocksucker (and they fired it). I assume it's much different now.
