Games Hub: Hogwarts Legacy does not deserve to be reviewed on its own merits

Whether or not we want to admit it, it is impossible to talk positively about Hogwarts Legacy without harming a community of human beings.

Is there no separating the art from the artist? Are we to burn all Picasso's work because he was a misogynist? Or burn other horrible artists' works as well?

I'm willing to. Or at least to make sure that we evaluate the art in the context of the artist, so that we can better understand when we're propagating distasteful ideas especially unwittingly.

And when consumption of that art has the direct result of enriching the artist, hell yeah we should burn it.

Bad People, Good Art: What now? (Youtube video). So what happens when your favorite artist turns out to be bad?

Oh, and from the same channel: Hogwarts Legacy and the Politics of Potter, which goes deeper into Rowling's politics beyond her remarks about transsexuals.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
