This seems like a healthy and normal thing for gamers to do.
If the presence of women in games breaks your immersion, may I suggest walking into the sea?
Predictable. Sad, but predictable.

By grown hateful pathetic men, and sad lonely little boys. The response from Creative Assembly is perfect.
I can't imagine living a life where the portrayal of women in a video game makes you this angry.

Can we throw this people out of the industry?
Sometimes you just need to tell incels to go fuck themselves, or rather, tell them to do what they do every night.
The twist at the end is perfect

Oh my god what fragile children....also why do people make content for these fragile children still? When can we…
What a perfectly normal thing happening in this normal ass industry
hmm seems pretty reasonable
So tired of these fucking people.
No, I think the Total War game is getting review bombed on Steam because of whiny misogynist man-children.
Steam could fix this the same way Amazon and Newegg did: Verified purchase reviews, which have added score weight.
For my money, there's no more laughably pathetic self-own than these angry male gamers broadcasting how fragile, in…
If you're mad that your computer game has the option to turn on / off female characters, you're an idiot.
