It's only a time sink if ya want to beat it, to putz around and have some fun you don't have to invest anymore time than you want to. you can accumulate progress in smaller play sessions as well. The game mechanics and play style are fairly forgiving in that sense. It's a sandbox.

Quoting: madpingerThis knee jerk outrage over every little thing is just absurd imo.
So is knee-jerk outrage over perceived knee-jerk outrage. Please don't invent drama where there is none.

Call it how you want. I suppose we're all become revisionist, rewrite all existing books to make them conform to some idealized view, nonsense. I just believe it should be left alone, we don't have to always agree on everything. It's not like I can't recall reading much the same thing in past books even as a child about a wheelchair char, but I suppose such a simple thing wouldn't be allowed today, by the mobs.


Anyway, My views are clear, like em or not. I"m done with this topic.

Quoting: madpingerMeh, I dont' see the issue frankly. If the char doesn't want to be in the wheel chair, that's the char's choice. it doesn't represent all people in a wheel chair.

Sorry to break it to you, but fictional characters can't make choices on account of not existing. The choice was the author's all along!

Sure, the author creates the char, but that char can still have a life of it's own. We don't have to always agree with char's in our stories, nor must they be likable or PC. It's nonsense. It's not like we have to agree either way.


As to consulting other wheelchair users, I've known many. I also worked in special needs programs over the years. Some take pride in it, are happy, others not so much. We're all individuals. This knee jerk outrage over every little thing is just absurd imo.
