I take issue with how you seem to trivialize the concern people have about gaming. Gaming is at its most inclusive when it accepts people with a variety of viewpoints, doesn’t trivialize them, and actually truly speaks to a wide variety of experiences.
I welcome the politicization of gaming as you say. It’s not acceptable for gamers to live in their own little bubble that caters to their fantasies at the expense of others. All great games speak to the world around us and the people who live in it.
The people who whine about their games being too PC must realize that belief lines up quite well with the people who long for the time that America was “great”. Both long for a more cis male dominated culture, which happens to be great for them but not so much for anyone else.
