The Cancel Far Cry 5 Petition is updated – Is the creator serious?

Far Cry 5
Last week we all found out about a petition to cancel Far Cry 5 because it seemed like it was singling out the “right wing nut jobs” in its game as the villains. Turns out the petition creator updated his page stating that he was serious and he made some very interesting points about it. In fact, he directly points out the media for incorrectly reporting his petition and he further explains his reasoning for the petition.

Updated Far Cry 5 Petition Commentary

I was hoping to update this petition in regards to the success we’re seeing in our mission. But change.org decided to attempt to censor this petition by refusing access. They say they were just updating their servors, but we all know the truth.

I’ve seen a lot of claims that this petition promotes violence. Stop being morons. I was merely pointing out that the groups they target may feel slighted and revolt against them. It’s just a safety concern, that’s all.

I would like to say that this petition has been a great success. UBISoft has created some new game images for the game that shows some black man in the villains table. We can finally move towards true equality once we ensure video game antagonists reflect reality. I think they even made some of the enemies a little more Islamic by having them invoke their religion a lot in that trailer, which is great news. UbiSoft is truly listening to gamers.

But in their efforts to smear gamers and this one gamer right here in particular, the mainstream games media and idiots on the internet have decided that, since they can’t target the argument, they have to find out the man and target him. Look at who they think or will say I am in order to derail the true mission of this petition and the rights of gamers everywhere:

1. Some Random SJW journo – great guys, just great. Crap yourselfs almost immediately by saying this successful petition is just a false flag.
2. Two specific random SJW Journos – Double crap yourselves again. Thinking two idiots who stumbled on this petition first must have created it. And CNN killed OJ’s wife, right? Idiots
3. Some IGN editor – Yeah that makes us gamer look real good guys. We tell everybody the mainstream games press are a bunch of low talent cucks and then say they’re masterminds behind secret hoaxes Here I am, Gamergate’s greatest success and they want to say I’m some kind of IGN secret.
4. UBISoft employee – Sure this is all marketing. The first real headway Gamergate makes into convincing a game developer to listen to their audience and you screw it all up by saying it’s some marketing stunt. Even worse, you throw around some kind of “confirmation” that it isn’t an UBISoft employee because some guy on Twitter or Gamefaqs says so. I have an uncle that works at Nintendo too, and he says your full of shit. No marketing department would TELL you about a secret marketing campaign, you moroins.
5. Some dipshit named Ian cheong – this is the truest and most assured strategy to smear gamers in history. Find the worst example of a gamer and use him to smear all gamers. They take one look at this basement swelling loser, obviously asian, )no stereotypes here, right), see he’s fat dirty, and lonely and smear the rest of us. Classic. He’s even some kind of game journo too. Perfect sacrifice. It’s bad enough when the mainstream press stereotypes gamers, but when they find the perfect posterboy in their own group to throw under the bus, thats even worse.
6. A White house staffer. Certain journos with an agenda want to turn this petition into some kind of political crap. So it has to be trump. Of course, they’re obsessed with trump and want to link everything with trump. Project everything everywhere. Though I am trying to Make All Games American an Great Again (MAGAGA), I don’t have any affiliation with a government
also this weird thing about 4chan, saying it’s from 4chan because it’s “obviously racist” but also not from 4chan because “he didn’t post a pepe once or say “kek””. idiots.

These are all of the tactics these guys try to silence this petition, to pin it on some random idiot and attack the idiot. But I have news for you, mainstream game journalists:

You targetd gamers. GAMERS.

We’re a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end performing some of the hardest, most mentally demanding tasks. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a little digital token saying we did.

We’ll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it’s fun.

We’ll spend most if not all of our free time min maxing the stats of a fictional character all to draw out a single extra point of damage per second.
Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the grind, all day, the same quests over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know evety little detail such that some have attained such gamer nirvana that they can literally play these games blindfolded.

Do these people have any idea how many controllers have been smashed, systems over heated, disks and carts destroyed 8n frustration? All to latter be referred to as bragging rights?

These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our media? We’re already building a new one without them. They take our devs? Gamers aren’t shy about throwing their money else where, or even making the games our selves. They think calling us racist, mysoginistic, rape apologists is going to change us? We’ve been called worse things by prepubescent 10 year olds with a shitty head set. They picked a fight against a group that’s already grown desensitized to their strategies and methods. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they’ve threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us we no longer matter. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can’t is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.

Gamers are competative, hard core, by nature. We love a challange. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challange us. You’re not special, you’re not original, you’re not the first; this is just another boss fight.

What he says is fairly interesting when it comes to journalism towards gamers and how things can get misconstrued. However, this entire thing still sounds like he’s playing the part and this whole thing could still be a ruse. It’s hard to trust a lot of things nowadays since we do get information overload from the internet, but then again this man could actually be serious about canceling Far Cry 5. I guess we can just sit and wait to see what becomes of this.

Far Cry 5 is scheduled to be released in February of 2018.
