First of all, the article merely means that he was literally calling him a pigfucker.Eldritch Warlord said:I almost don't want to ask because people are being serious here but . . .
How can one figurtively be a pigfucker?
This is an excellent point and one I'd have liked to pursue further in the main piece. Political involvement in the broad sense (not so much electioneering and shoving 'issues' down people's throats, but publicly expressing strong opinions about the world, especially through art) seems to be a real no-go area for developers. I can absolutely see why - for reasons including the status quo, corporate nature of most large publishers, the need to pay mortgages and feed kids, etc - but it does seem to me that every other popular art/entertainment form, whether music, film, or sports, has had high profile people who aren't afraid to get in a little trouble for their beliefs...RAKtheUndead said:To be frank, if we want to see computer games with some sort of political commentary, we need developers who are actually interested in politics. Most developers are not interested in getting rid of the status quo, and I wouldn't expect them to be.
