10 biggest video game controversies of 2021

The many revelations that followed the public revelation of this investigation could easily fill the rest of this article (the “Cosby Sequel”, Activision Blizzard’s anti-union efforts, everything about Bobby Kotick, etc.), but it also fits Note that this controversy extends to the ethics of buying, promoting and playing Activision Blizzard games. There is also an interesting debate right now on how best to talk about Activision Blizzard’s gaming history now that we know the conditions under which many of them were developed and how their success may have contributed to nurture the culture of abuse in the company.

GTA Trilogy titles from the digital markets and replace them with these remasters, it’s safe to say there is a lot of criticism to be had.

It’s nice to see that the RGT remasters are always updated and patched, but it’s safe to say this was the sloppiest major release of the year.
