Video Games Going Woke

I don’t drink or party. For me gaming is a way to relax after a long week of work. I get the kid in bed and spend some time with the wife. Then I can load up a computer game and lose myself in the game world for a while and unwind.

It’s getting harder to avoid the woke

It’s getting harder to avoid the woke. We play games for escapism and to relax. We don’t want real world politics and drama in our games.

But a few years ago I noticed little woke things starting to pop up in games. It was not much at first and was easy to ignore. But games today are pushing the woke agenda harder and harder to the point it can’t be overlooked anymore. I guess this is another reason not to preorder games. Because you don’t know what kind of stuff will be in them ahead of time.

I will use two recent games as my examples.

Baldur’s Gate 3 Is woke

I did not know much about Baldur’s Gate but after a dozen people suggested I try it I decided to buy it. My fault for not doing my research.

The first thing I noticed was there was an option to turn NSFW content off. That should have been a red flag but I thought “hey at least there is a switch to turn it off.” So I turned it off and continued.

It was not long into the game when I was confronted with a male NPC hitting on my male character. It felt yucky and ruined the immersion. But I remember thinking ok I turned them down maybe it won’t come back up.

Well I was wrong. The game seems to be constantly trying to funnel you into dialog for the player to have gay sex with a NPC. This game has the most horny NPC’s I have ever seen. I remind you I have the NSFW filter on but it doesn’t matter. These dialog options come up without even trying. Even with a NPC that supposedly dislikes me.

It makes me wonder how much worse it would be if I did not turn on that filter. It also seems forced in considering whats going on in the story of the game. It’s like the developers did not have a good way to include it so they just shoved in sex invitations everywhere.

Starfield is Woke

Starfield Logo

I did do some research on Starfield and decided not to get it. At least not yet until I learn more. So I can’t give you a first hand account but I will link to videos of people who can. It’s sad because I had high hopes for this game. Oh well back to Empyrion for when I’m craving a space game.

Update 9/14/2023 – A friend from an old job sent me a gift copy of Starfield on Steam. So I guess I will be trying it out after all. I will probably steam it on Rumble at some point if you want to check that out.

Warning: Some Of These videos are NSFW.

What does God say about this?

Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable. – Leviticus 18:22

In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. – Jude 1:7

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. – Romans 1:20-32

Their trying to normalize woke

As you can see from my Baldur’s Gate examples and the videos about Starfield there is a big push to normalize this junk and force it onto us.

I’m not expecting this to get any better. Maybe if enough gamers stop buying it would slowdown or stop. I’m hoping. But i’m not sure the average gamer will do anything beyond complaining on the internet. You have to vote with your wallet if you want to see change.

At the very least don’t pay full price. Wait for a deep sale. That still cuts into their profit and can send a message.
