Reader Discussion – If You Could Change One Thing About Your Favorite Game, What Would It Be?

I love Mass Effect 2, but it's far from flawless. Our favorite games are dear to us, but there's always room for improvement. If you could change one thing about your favorite game, what would it be?

It's hard to pick just one thing, but if Mass Effect 2 could be remade with the third entry's combat, I'd probably love it even more. How about you? Is there a game that you love, but there's one thing that could make it better? This could include visuals, gameplay, story – anything.

Report: Quantic Dream And David Cage Face Allegations Of Toxic Studio Culture

Quantic Dream, the studio behind cinematic adventure games like Heavy Rain and the upcoming Detroit: Become Human, is accused of having a toxic work environment that involves sexual misconduct, as well as sexist, racist, and homophobic comments aimed at its staff.

Reports came from three separate French outlets today: Le Monde, Canard PC, and Mediapart, all of which corroborate these claims. According to Le Monde, five former employees filed a complaint in spring 2017 when an employee was circulating degrading images involving other staff members. In February 2017, an IT manager discovered 600 photoshopped images that depicted employees in homophobic, sexist, or offensive ways, including Nazi symbols or crude imagery. These files date back to 2013, with some even being displayed in open spaces around the office.

Studio heads David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumièr strongly deny the allegations, with Cage reportedly saying that he is "shocked" by them. Although they were both aware of the photoshopped images, they say they didn't know of the more offensive ones.
