wow, it still amazes me people can blatantly lie or try to misrepresent facts in public. that can easily be checked, and in this case debunked.
personally, i don't have an issue with non violent games per se. and the devs simply stating that as a design choice would have sufficed. but virtue signalling, by making demonstrably false claims, to apparently attract a certain politically leaning demographic, is only going to backfire in the end... pun intended.
