Blizzard: Overwatch Porn, BAD!!!

01

*sigh* Really, Blizzard?

With Overwatch now officially released and the general public being exposed to the beta in early May, it’s no surprise that a lot of people who enjoy drawing and creating pornographic material, especially the ones who use Source Filmmaker for these sorts of things, have been going crazy with producing tons and tons of Overwatch-related pornography and just releasing it onto the Internet for free. It’s been so crazy that Pornhub discovered that since the open beta went live on May 5th, searches on their site for Overwatch-related porn went up a massive (pun intended) 817%! That is an incredible amount to increase by in such a short period of time! However, Blizzard Activision doesn’t seem to enjoy this particular increase in attention.

It has been reported on several different sites now about people getting DMCA claims and copyright infringement claims for any content that has Overwatch characters doing well…things that you wouldn’t see in a video game, at least with its current ESRB rating. It’s also been reported that they’ve likely outsourced a digital content security company in Irdeto USA to seek out such content and get it removed.

So how do I feel on this issue? About as you’d expect, I think Blizzard’s being extremely ridiculous with something that takes place with every single game released, every single anime, TV show, movie, comic, anything entertainment related, they’re pornographic art of it. Remember Rule 34, “If it exists, there is porn of it – no exceptions.” and that has been proven time and time again by even the most weird and abnormal things being drawn in a pornographic nature. There’s really nothing a company can do to stop it, no matter how hard they try, people will continue to produce it if they A, want to and B, feel there’s an audience for it, the first being the more important one. Regardless of censorship, people will always draw, animate, or dare I say…fantasize and even roleplay it with their significant other?

And really, it’s Blizzard’s own damn fault for this. Y’know why? Because they created an art style and set of characters that are perfect for this kind of pornographic content, in particular the 3D Source Filmmaker animators who create a ton of wonderfully beautiful and sexy content of various games in particular. There’s no way you can look at Overwatch and deny just how beautiful the art style is, it may just be the best art direction in any game this year. And when you couple that together with all the girls in particular, there’s literally nothing keeping any of these animators from creating content, it’s too perfect for them to pass up. And yes, by all the girls, I’m even including Zarya, who generally the majority of stuff she’s in has either had some surgery done or was packing a little something somethin’ the entire time for all the other lovely girls.

In my opinion however. the biggest factor for why so much pornographic material has been made of Overwatch is likely due to the many people who are apparently “sexist and misogynistic” for enjoying beautiful fictional women still being a little pissed off that Tracer’s “butt pose” was removed and replaced with one that honestly didn’t change the fact Tracer has a fantastic ass. I believe people would’ve created a ton of this content regardless, but I truly do feel that the “censorship” from earlier in the game’s initial beta has caused a lot of people to focus their attention purely on Overwatch and creating pornographic content in spite of Blizzard and the feminists/SJWs that raised a pointless uproar on a reality in life. What’s that reality, you ask? Simple. Women generally speaking have more developed and noticeable butts than men. And when a character wearing a very tight pair of pants, it’s going to be even further defined. Fact.

Regardless of the reasons why, I don’t understand Blizzard’s need to attempt to censor all of this content, in fact they’re actually doing themselves a major disservice by doing so, in my opinion. Look at the amount of attention all this brings, we are a very superficial society, would it not make sense to allow all this content to be developed so more people find it and go “Wow, whatever game this is from, it’s fucking gorgeous!” and possibly look into the game itself. That’s more potential buys, Blizzard, don’t you like money?! And most importantly, content like this as much as some people are probably disgusted at the thought of men and women (you ignorant morons!) masturbating to these characters, it may actually increase the game’s lifespan or at the very least keep it at the forefront when it comes to games being talked about.

I understand Blizzard, I really do. You and your team went out and created a beautiful game that also plays extremely well and people are really enjoying it thus far. And yes, I understand that after all this hard work, it probably really disgusts, depresses and angers you that people have immediately taken the hard work you’ve done, taken the character models and posed them in various states of undress while participating in vaginal or anal sex, blowjobs, DPs, gangbangs and anything else you can think of (though I don’t recall seeing anyone playing with tentacles just yet, I’m sure someone’s already done it though) that is anything but what you intended them to be used for. But this is a reality of our current technological generation, people do this for every single piece of content that comes out, you can’t expect them, nor force them to not do it, they will no matter how many times you try and stop it.

And lastly, it comes off very childish when you’re trying to censor pornographic content, when it does nothing to negatively impact your game. I challenge you to tell me otherwise. The only people that would get offended by this content would not go and search for this kind of content. If you ignore it, no one has to know it exists except under the Rule 34 idea that we have to assume it exists, we just don’t go looking for it. This is a non-issue, how many other games have had this kind of story come out under the same circumstances? As far as I’ve heard of, zero! You know why? Cause they understand it’s something that can’t be stopped, nor is it something that should be on their radar to begin with.

So Blizzard, take a chill pill, relax, it’s just boobs, butts and dicks. You don’t have to look at it, no one’s sitting you down in a chair, strapping you to it and forcing your eyelids open to make you watch it like it’s some horror film kind of situation going on.

And seriously, what’d you expect to happen when you created such a beautiful game with girls like Tracer, Widowmaker, Mercy, Symmetra, D’va, Pharah, Mei and yes, even Zarya? Did you really think the Internet would ignore that? They can’t ignore furries!
