I've been enjoying watching Phen play Doom Eternal so far; the game's a comedy, but the most ridiculous moment to me by far was when he fired up the Bethesda launcher to be greeted by this collage of marketing images clearly focus-tested to sell M-rated games to adults 🔸


It reminds me of the Bethesdaland E3 presentation. Imagine a theme park where most of the rides could be represented by a weapons-ready photorealistic humanoid in the chin-down/eyes-up angry pose, aside from one, and it's Fallout Shelter 🔸

@Lobst It reminds me also of an "upcoming new releases" graphic from last fall that had to utilize the same cobalt-blue color tint to make Pokémon look as drab as Death Stranding and Modern Warfare.
