    Just because you play as a former Yakuza in Yakuza doesn't mean its message is "being Yakuza is good and fine!" - in fact, it's the complete opposite.
    This comic and the artist's responses afterwards come across as saying that this is a good thing to do and defending them doing it personally, which is very different to something like Yakuza.

    People absolutely do criticise Rockstar and T2 for those things, and I've seen it plenty myself. Likewise with the absolute hatred against EA's terrible lootbox practices. We can criticise both.
    I think you're being extremely lenient with how you're reading their responses - they're very blatantly defending the actions in the comic as fine, claiming that nobody gets hurt as a result (they do) 
    Basically they're saying "shoplifting is fine, be angry at the companies not the thieves." And look, I get it, capitalism bad etc, but they're still very blatantly pretending it's a victimless crime.

    They did try justifying it though, and that's the issue. Rockstar doesn't justify the content of GTA - hell, they outright give you the option to skip one of the most brutal scenes in the game. The content of GTA, or South Park, or Yakuza, aren't supposed to present justifiable situations - Trevor is a psychopath, Cartman is an absolute idiot, and Kiryu is a Good Uncle, surrounded by an extremely messy criminal underworld. 
    This person thinks it's justifiable to steal from art stores (a genre of stores that already tend to be indie rather than Big Evil Companies). In the real world. That and following on from their last comic, where they pretty much explicitly defended the actual, real-life burglary of Pewdiepie (who granted is a dickhead, but still), it's not exactly surprising that people saw through the "it's just a character!" excuse, moreso when they revealed that yes, this was just their thoughts on what's fine and dandy to do. (i.e. stealing from stores and getting the employees in shit, apparently)

    Poor and starving to the extent that you eat art supplies that you initially stole for the lulz? This comic isn't the opening to Aladdin, for crying out loud.
     
    People do criticize GTA. Every time one comes out. V alone got a lot of shit for, among other things, allegedly glorifying torture, off the top of my head.
     
     
    And while I have not played 4, The Sims having a career path that "literally is being a master criminal" in The Sims 3 it is also played as if your character was a make-your-own Bond villain; which culminates in a top level of the career path where you literally glow red sometimes and have other Sims run away from you on sight. Not a particularly good allegory for real life criminal acts.

    The problem is they're still defending it, rather than just being like, "I stole once as a kid, this isn't about me now that I've grown up, chill", whereas it is very blindingly obvious that you aren't supposed to do what the kids in South Park do and that they're not good examples.

    Every island layout's like that - it's so they can introduce you to the pole vault and bridge construction later on.

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Cayenne in Sega, please, pretty please, bring back Uekawa's hand drawn art for the next Sonic ga   
    AFAIK the Adventure games were drawn by Uekawa, his style's just changed over the years. Back in the Adventure days, Ohshima was still there and his influence was still very obvious.
    You're probably thinking of Satoshi Okano, who collaborated with Uekawa on some other titles and was responsible for the very similar Sonic 3D Saturn JP artwork. Okano was also shortlisted to redesign Sonic, but lost to Uekawa.

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from Kuzu in What's the point of Sonic discussion on this fucking board? It's just either: People   
    Surely at that point then, the solution is to find other places to discuss Sonic? If you don't like the people here on a social level and you don't enjoy the Sonic discussion, it's probably time to move on elsewhere for it like a great many already have (even if not entirely), because there's no shortage of Sonic fans on places like Twitter or in numerous Discord servers.

    Tracker_TD got a reaction from KHCast in As much fun folks are having with the new Sonic Movie... even I enjoyed it enough. Bu   
    I think a balance is fine. Like I love the bizarrely Virtua Racing inspired trees of Green Hill (which SEGA have consistently missed the point of anyway), but I'm fine with stuff like Carnival Night too. 
    Some of my favourite Sonic levels are the ones where they take a grounded concept (a theme park/speedway) and just make it look damn pretty (Stardust Speedway). I'd love to see a proper ski resort level in Sonic someday...
