There's no point if we can't mention the main reason for it. A mod already ruled that it should stay out (and said to report anyone trying to add the stuff back).

There are definitely a lot of bullshit ratings mostly related to the "controversy". It should be noted that even RPG Codex (as anti-"SJW" as they generally are) gave it a decent review.

't's already decided that thisxshould stay iff since they main reason for the controversy isn't supposed to be mentioned here.'

Regarding the points about the release; where was this decided? I can't find a link anywhere. That also seems pretty silly, the whole point of this website is to catalogue tropes related to and about entries - the whole debacle surrounding So D is pretty important to it!

It was discussed here, but I'll reiterate a few points anyway:

Not sure if you're aware, but any mention of that internet controversy is generally forbidden here, whether directly or not, and not being able to mention it gives a skewed version of events.

Also Internet Backdraft generally isn't for stuff like generic bugs, gameplay issues or anything else related to general quality, but about specific controversial decisions that pissed the internet off. There wouldn't be a huge outcry if bugs, "questionable writing" and UI changes were the only issues. Almost any time anyone complains about the writing it's related to the controversy, so mentioning that here as a general issue is almost shoehorning (and again it wouldn't count as an Internet Backdraft reason anyway, or else any game where people didn't like the writing would count). The bugs are already mentioned on the main page. Multiplayer issues would have in no way generated a huge outcry by itself because I'd wager most people don't play BG for multiplayer.

It's not really a trope anyway and talking about it isn't absolutely necessary. Fan outcry has nothing to do with the game itself. Soon the people who only care about the issue in hand will lose interest. In the meantime it's not really possible to gauge actual fan response. For example, I'm not sure we can really trust the votes on Steam even if the reviews don't mention the controversy, since it's possible people who do only care about it will vote for any negative review. Mentioning the developers' response is almost impossible without getting into the issue as well, since it's directly related.

There's absolutely no question that the only reason there's any significant outcry is because of a reason we can't mention here.

...Man, I'm so glad I re-checked this. I'd forgotten, but apparently those scheisskopfen haven't, because I just came from Metacritic where it's still being metabombed every few days.

How well does it match the trope?
