Pillars of Eternity 2 writer has some... interesting opinions
http://www.gamerevolution.com/features/347097-pillars-eternity-ii-writer-manchester-bombings-get-prepare
Good thing is that he left the team shortly after this appeared online, but I still hope that Obsidian will make some statement regarding this and distance themselves from this character.

Oh great He has Opinions that you disagreed With. Go on Crow.
But just why the hell would Obsidian be resposible for personal opinions of their staff ?
I dont remember Sawyer posting these posts in Official Capability in the Name of Obsidian.

They hired him, and these games are commercial products.

Woah, that is some messed up stuff. I am glad to hear that he isn't working on the game anymore.

He is telling the truth. Good stuff, too bad he had to resign.

Sounds like he would have been a perfect fit to some of Tyranny's factions.

Heh. Maybe he was also contracted for Tyrrany and had some hands on experience that aided his writing.

Why would he quit? Make them fire you if they think what you said is so bad.

There will be nobody left in the game industry that isn't in Antifa soon, also this guy by quitting is admitting he did wrong and now won't ever work in the idustry again.

Feminists aren't happy unless they are ruining something they don't even care about.

Personal views ≠ Game design

Just because someone has weird opinions, doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed to do their job.

That's EXACTLY what it means in our society though, anyone that isn't a lefty is being purged from game design and gamers aren't complaning about it.

This is why games are turning into pure propoganda, all these development houses are echo chambers. Games like Lawbreakers launch and fail and they are amazed that normal people don't like their garbage games, there is nobody that doesn't think like them working there.

Guy saying that black chicks are the best can't be wrong. The man got my vote.

Yeah but there's still hope. Bioware tanked mass effect 4 with their social justice warriors and feminists and they actually learned and fired them all because the market didn't want social justice propaganda in their video games. The culture war isn't over yet, and for the last year lefties have been losing finally.

Rubish. This guy wasn't fired, if he was fired, not for not being a lefty, or for being a conservative, if he's a conservative.

He went becasue he made outraqgeous racist comments publicly (see link in OP), the sort of comments that no self respecting company anywhere in US or EU could tollerate from one of their staff. Anyone that sais "By the way, Muslims have been wholesale slaughtering children in their little regions for years now." is a racist through and through.

In short he was fired for gross racism. Not for being a conservative.

Same difference with the guy fired from Google - he wasn't fired for being a conservative. He was fired becasue he argued that men were inherantly better at tech jobs than women and that's why so few womwn worked at Google, i.e. women weren't good enough to work at Google.

In short he was fired for gross sexism. Not for being a conservative.

Every single thing he wrote is 100% true and factual, you just don't like it.

He is actually guilty of nothing more than being a conserva\ite in a lefty dominated industry.

Religions aren't even races. 1000 years ago Baghdad was one of the intellectual centers of the world. That's why so many math and astronomy terms are of Arabic origin. Many advances came from that part of the world. Guess what happened to change all that.
