The Chinese Room Accuses CD Projekt RED of Making Sexist Video Games

cyberpunk 2077 04-29-16-1

Independent British developer The Chinese Room (Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture) has accused Polish RPG studio CD Projekt RED of sexism.

The news comes via the developer’s official Twitter, where they responded to a GameSpot article lauding the Polish studio’s next epic, Cyberpunk 2077.

“But just as sexist if that image is anything to go by…” said the developer on Twitter (backup here in case they delete it), in response to GameSpot saying the game will be more ambitious than the Witcher series “on every single front.”

It’s worth pointing out the above image (which GameSpot featured in their article) is not official promotional art for the game, it was used in the game’s original teaser. The finished version is found below:

Cyberpunk2077-5-27-2015

CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t expected for awhile, considering the scale of the project and the amount of effort the studio is putting into it.

How do you guys feel about The Chinese Room’s comment? Are CD Projekt RED’s games sexist by nature? Sound off in the comments below!

    The Chinese Room are clearly jealous of the success of The Witcher and are trying to pull CD Projekt RED down. Type of behaviour a spoilt angry child would have.

    It’s weird to see an European company being this puritan and sex-negative.

    Might as well post this here too. The guy behind the Chinese Room literally thinks that sexy ladies in bikinis in video games can be equated with anti-semitic stereotypes and nazi propaganda and that a woman’s breasts are equivalent to a man’s penis. This is not someone who should be taken seriously.

    How do i put it. They are the losers which banded together under anonymity .Catch one irl, hit him LIGHTLY in the face and you see him going complete abeshit. Not proportionate, but flip out like you torn his limb off and shoved up his ass.

    They are a class of sissy sub-humans which are usually result of no-loser parenting aka “no ultimatum parenting” which leads to narcissistic, sometimes sociopathic human beings.

Honestly, how appropriate is it for a developer responsible for a non-interactive walking simulator that was bombed harder than Hiroshima to not only defend overpriced, half finished turds but also shamelessly bash a more competent and successful studio?

    The funny thing is though, they seem to have absolutely no problems with handsome male characters (that are designed to appeal with females), such as Cloud and topless Dante, and various members of the Final Fantasy cast.

    It’s only “sexist” to them if it happens to female characters.

    The real sexism is when you say that if a woman is sexually attractive, then she must be just that and nothing else.

    Women (and characters) have personalities, whether you find them “sexy” or not.
    Yennefer is a lightning shooting witch that can open portals to anywhere in the world, she is intelligent, fun, silver tongued.
    All of that doesn’t suddenly disappear because i saw her tiddies in a romantic sex scene.

    But to be completely honest, this sexist tweet is coming from a company that managed to pick up the biggest trailblazing sensation in horror games of the last 10 years and botch it, effectively killing the IP in a single swoop.
    I am not surprised this is what they’re doing for publicity, as by the looks of their other “games” (if you can call a 3D visual novel with no interaction a videogame) their whole team was hired off Tumblr.

    No, not racism. It’s a thought experiment about faking ability by using a database to respond to stimuli without actually understanding the material. I don’t know why they’d name themselves after a prime example for “faker”, but there you go.

    How dare anyone find attractive women attractive. They should have gotten a fat, black, transgender, muslim polykin woman in her burka to be the model for that trailer. And those arm blades.

    Ever occur to you that “sexy women” in video games are fictional?

    You know, fictitious, invented, imaginary, imagined, made up, make-believe, unreal, fabricated, concocted, devised, mythical, storybook, the product of someone’s imagination
    “a fictional character”.

    Therefore, cuck off.

    The danger here is that there’s a chance (albeit small) that CD Projekt RED may be affected, because what The Chinese Room has done is brought attention to them.

    And I’m sure you know how SJWs/feminists operate. For example, all it took was just one tweet from a c**t to stir up a massive hate mob towards Matt Taylor.

    Can we also cover up topless male characters? Make the ugly or less handsome? Don’t put abs on them, no oversized pectorals, and no chiselled physiques either. Because they are not a realistic representation of men and is an impossible beauty standard for a lot of men. Cover them up to represent men better.

    See how utterly ridiculous that sounds?

    ‘wah wah women should be represented better’
    ‘wah wah this is so sexist’

    An RPS writer interviewing Mateusz Kanik (Game Director at CDPR), already tried making an “issue” about that very same woman in the teaser trailer that still we don’t know much about. Mateusz promptly shut him down.

    One of the fundamental problems with the “Anything remotely sexual = Sexism” angle is that it involves making snap judgments about things solely based on appearance, a practice that the same loud people pulling that angle would also preach about not doing with real people.

    TCR’s tweet falls in the same fashion. But the tweet (from whoever on that account made that tweet) is extra dumb because that woman in the Cyberpunk 2077 Teaser Trailer was modeled after an actual woman being scanned in. Wonder how she feels about an average behind the scenes image of her being called sexist. https://www.behance.net/gallery/Cyberpunk-2077/6573211

    I don’t know if TCR’s tweet was really intended to raise some pulses for attention, or if whoever running that account is actually could be that stupid. But if they were smart enough to know how to grab peoples’ attention, they wouldn’t have to pretend to be stupid to do so. Now everyone’s just taking turns shitting on them. Whoops.

    Look at the product they put out then look at the output of CD Projekt RED and the praise they’ve received that’s part of it, the other part is they like many others have taken absolute insanity wrapped up in highly addictive “right side of history” rhetoric as their religion due to their own insecurity with gaming, their twisted idea of “pushing the medium forward” and having utter contempt for anything that doesn’t for a growing list of ill-defined and ludicrous reasons. The pushback against this has only made them nuttier and even more hypersensitive, years before going into a tizzy over being called SJWs I remember certain games jounros throwing fits on their podcasts if a commenter on a previous episode dare even said that they disliked when a host would drag their politics onto the show so I can’t say that I regret giving up on mainstream gaming podcasts years ago.

Yes there are, oh my god butts and boobies, but I don’t see how that is sexiest. Like everyone has said before, the most powerful characters are women in the game.

There are people who love Dear Esther from within of heart as a beautiful story told by a chance to breath through walk in that virtual world. Me, you etc. might find it being some boring shit but i guess people who really liked it were sincere. And you shouldnt act like dictator saying that people can only enjoy “games” and not other forms of media.

    Anyway, i guess people who liked D.E. now should feel betrayed as they would never expect authors of DE being such pityful attention whores who use “hot” scandal themes to gain a look. THOUGH, NEVER MIX AUTHOR WITH PRODUCT. You know, like your favorite movie/music album/game/etc mught be created by absolute idiot dickhead… Sometimes its better to know nothing about authors to not be disappointed by their acts.

    Dear Esther had just “pretty graphics” and nothing else. Remember that it wasnt even original stuff, it was just a mod of a HL2 mod.

    You can enjoy shitty things, but that doesnt make them any less shitty in the end.

    Not really. It’s pattern recognition. Blacks commit WAY more crime than other races.
