    Hogwarts legacy has a ton of woke:

    • They litterally designed a transexual character and forced it down your throat
    • You are forced to be friends with this special black chick no one cares about because they have to push a “minority” down your throat, it is said uganda didn’t even existed back at that time, black people at that time wouldn’t be that common either.
    • You also learn from the person that introduces you to Merlin trials that she has a “wife” and later you actually meet her “wife”
    • They put a blind character and I bet 100% this is to force diversity and not just casual or has any good motives but agenda inclusivity because they even have a ton of options for disabled people in the actual game which I dont mind but I do mind when they tokenise disabled people
    • In Hogsmead I met a white lady that has a black kid LMAO and they have a special background scene so they really want you to see this
    • Barely any men in positions of power and most of them are women, Of course the Auror you meet after the troll attack in Hogsmead is a female and this example continues through the game, Of course the defense against dark arts is another female and I know this is deliverate
    • You can’t make white characters in the game without a mod but black characters can be done without issue
    • You are called “THEY” like how can you say this game doesn’t have this BULLSHIT whith a straight face when they fucking call you THEY in game
    • You can actually chose to be a WITCH (FEMALE) as a male avatar and you can actually go to the FEMALE comon rooms as a biological male…
    • You can chose to have a Male voice as a female and vice versa for the sake of including this mentally ill people

    And I haven’t finished the game, I bet I will encounter a shit ton more of this through the rest of my playthrough.

    But then as a game itself Hogwarts legacy is fast food videogame, its atrociously boring, if its considered an RPG is the bottom of the barrel type one , because is just that simplistic and boring, here is a list of the things I find wrong in the game:

    The stuff that I like about the game:

    • Aesthetically the world design, its really good looking and accurate to what we saw on the films.
    • The combat isn’t just button mashing and its quite cleverly done, probably inspired by the Lego Harry Potter games.
    • Obivously being able to make your own character

    The meh stuff, boring:

    • The world is lifeless, its beautiful but its litterally just a themepark and that kills all the immersion for me, no NPC schedules, no consequences as a student for not going to sleep at night, the world feels dead, you can’t talk with anybody, everything is static, you can’t even sit or sleep.
    • Aesthetically the world is amazing but hardly anything to discover and you sometimes you enter a cave and there is just a chest and you actually wonder if there is a hidden puzzle or something you are missing to continue but then you search online and find out that, that was truly it, LAME.
    • You can’t truly be evil in this game, is really dumb, for an “RPG” the desicion making on this game is nonexistant, hell you can just outright demand to be in a house at the beginning of the game instead of actually being assigned one according to a decent test and not just 2 stupid questions.
    • Sidequest are just fetch quests
    • The combat is great but the gear is so BORING for an “ARPG”, you can’t even get new weapons ok part of the lore but why does the wand handles give no stats instead of just being cosmetic that you never really see?
    • The broom upgrades are LAME, when I read you could upgrade the broom I thought the system would be deeper and instead its just a linear progression that unlocks via fetch quests, really, really LAME.
    • The main story is meh for me honestly but it wouln’t impact that much if the previous things weren’t bad.
    • Very few spells for a game that focuses on magic, sorry to say this again but Elden Ring is not a game that primary focus is being a mage and has probably 10 times more spells than this.
    • The combat has a TON of issues in itself but the worst one is how enemies teleport attack you, its so stupid beyond belief https://imgur.com/OmTmsWA

    Stuff that isn’t there but I wish it was there:

    • House points
    • Quiddich

    Now our character, THEY, LMAO the “GARY STU, MARY SUE”

    We are supposed to be this new kid that is in need of special assignments to put us up to speed with the rest of the ordinary students becuase we are behind all of them but:

    • We don’t actually need to study
    • We learn complicated spells by doing nonesense that has nothing to do with the spell in question
    • We massacre enemies like we are Merlin himself
    • We are constantly out of school fooling around instead of attending actual classes, reading books or practicing spells
    • We are a student yet we are never evaluated, we never do tests, we never really have to attend classes, we can do anything we want
    • Everybody knows us, people we never met before knows us and RELIES ON US!!! WTF!!!
    • Its impossible for us to fail any task and we are constantly bombarded with praise about how good and special we are
    • The story revolves around us being special and a “chosen one”
    • Curfew and Hogwarts rules don’t apply to us
    • We can’t be evil, we have to be good or very good and nobody is ever going to be mad at us ever
    • We don’t capture animals no we “RESCUE” them LMAO

    I am constantly in complete disbelief, this game makes no sense and I don’t know why they had to do this, this seems to be made to cater to the newer generations that don’t want to put any effort in anything and need to feel special and praised constantly and it is really sad and hurts the game, the immersion for anyone with a brain cell is completely gone when you start noticing this.


      In my opinion you are severely nitpicking.   While there were some things that you can magnify and call them woke those things are few and far between. Overall the game is done very well and above all it is fun.  Hence why it has done so well.  I am not even a Potter fan and I am enjoying the game just based on the game itself as I know little about the lore of it beyond seeing a couple of the movies back in the day.

      At the end of the day if you don’t like it then just don’t buy it.  Nothing wrong with that.  It’s your choice just as it is mine to buy it and play it.

      It must be noted that while you think it sucks and it’s woke the woke people think it is not woke enough and want to ruin people who play it.

      It has done well because it’s Harry Potter not because the game is actually good.

      While there were some things that you can magnify and call them woke those things are few and far between.

      I am not magnifying anything, I made a list of the woke trash in that game that isn’t magnifying, and it is there, stop trying to gaslight me.

      It must be noted that while you think it sucks and it’s woke the woke people think it is not woke enough and want to ruin people who play it.

      Completely untrue, they are not against the game because they think the game is not woke thats is a complete LIE, they are against it because JK Rowling statements on Twitter, the developers DID put a ton of effort into making the game as woke as possible, they fucking call you THEY for fucks sake.

      You are being a complete blind fanboy about this seriously and this is the problem with gaming this days, people defending this companies and franchises because they like them and refusing to acknowledge what is happening, I just can not believe someone is actually trying to tell me this game has nothing woke on it and that basically I am exaggerating when it is fucking there in your face all the time, not only that but actually trying to say the game is doing well because its good and not woke when it is doing well because the IP is carrying the game.


        “You are being a complete blind fanboy about this seriously”

        You know what I like and enjoy and appreciate?  Good solid discussion.  You are just about emotional insults because you are fueled by anger and or hatred for whatever reason.  Now there is plenty to be pissed off about now adays, I get that,  but you don’t win people over by insulting them.  You bring them to your position by explaining it well and defeating their arguments.  But you keep beating your chest and yelling, you do you.



          the game is pretty woke. I enjoy the game because i like harry potter, but everything you pointed out is true. No one is talking about the game anymore. many people have noticed the game was woke and some feel like they were tricked into buying multiple copies of the game. Attacking fans isnt going to win any points in the debate. and on the forums people just check out if you do. Alot of people are willing to over look a ton, Like bad writing because they like the IP. If you like the books you have to over look JK declaring every single Slytherin evil and untrustworthy in the final book and forcing the entire house out of the battle of hogwarts.  However woke the game is, people are going to defend it because it was so hated by the left. Its a 6/10 game at best with a ton of holes in the story, and a lack of real story and content and your choices have no effect on the game until you get to the end, and then its generic ending 1 or 2. the story is long but the side missions are pointless and the main story isnt interesting you kinda just keep playing to see what you unlock next. Its not game of the year, its not really game of the season. the combat is boring, you have three spells that are great and you are forced to keep spells you dont like on your bar to play simon says with the shield color. and why bother with spells, when plants are over powered, unless you max potions. However the game was successful, is getting a tv show, and probably a second one.

          Did i have fun? Yes.
          Will i play it again? No
          Was it worth the price i paid? Not really

          Is it woke? yes. it is very woke but, it was still fun.


          Thats how an honest person talks, LEARN from this INDIVIDUAL and start being HONEST and stop being a sad fanboy apologists that its controlled by their fucking instincts. Its like seeing men tolerating women stepping all over them because they are thristy of pussy.


            “Thats how an honest person talks, LEARN from this INDIVIDUAL and start being HONEST and stop being a sad fanboy apologists that its controlled by their fucking instincts. Its like seeing men tolerating women stepping all over them because they are thristy of pussy.”

            Look, beat your chest, yell, spit whatever.  All you are doing is pacifying yourself as far as I am concerned.

            I did not say the game had no woke.  I agree there was some just not enough to  bug me.  Outside of that the game is clean and bug free and is engaging.  I don’t care about the lore, I don’t care about JK I just liked the game. I guess I am some weirdo because I don’t draw political lines across everything and anything.


            I just started playing the game and honeslty, the fact you have to custimize your character’s gender (instead of chosing male or female) and being called “they” throughout the game… that is very cringy! I like SOME woke projects (I just try to overlook the woke elements since almost everything now will have little bit) but here it’s just too blatant and cringy. And if they did it speficifally to distance themselves from JK (love her books so much), well, they did an excellent job alienating us true fans and geeks in general while woke SJWs will still not play the game. We can say, SJWs sadly won this battle (not that they will be happy but still). We could have an awesome amazing game. But everytime I hear “they” about my character, I just cringe.


              We discussed the game earlier in another thread before and after it’s release.

              I did not like the character creator and that it had no defined female and male gender, like pretty much every single game in history has. It frankly pissed me off. Yes, there was Wizard and Witch, but there was NO difference in the character creator. Being a Witch just puts you in a different dorm, full of males and females. No different. (most people don’t know that) It was clear what they were pandering to. I spent a long time getting my character to look female as much as I could. It shouldn’t be like that. I seriously hope this does NOT become a trend in games.

              Yes, there were small “woke” moments over the course of the game, but they were few frankly. I don’t see you being friends with a black person in the game woke, because it’s not. It didn’t “force” you to, it was just who you are friends with. Would you be complaining if the person happened to be Asian? Probably not.

              My gripes with the game were frankly not related to any of that. I thought they went WAY overboard with the Merlin Trials nonsense and the over abundance of recycled repetitive stuff to do all over the map. I love open world games and finding things, but they went way too far and did too much of them, to the point where I never did it all. I found the amount ridiculous. I quit. I was NOT about to do every…single…Merlin trial. It was utterly pointless, it should have stopped after you unlocked the final inventory slot.

              I also did NOT want to do the broom racing, because the broom mechanics and movement were horrible for something like a race. I did the first race you were forced to do, and never do another, I never completed that side quest line. I had no interest in it.

              I enjoyed the storyline and finding all the cupboards and flying books. The side story of you helping your friend to save his sister was good as well. I beat it and I had fun and that was that. After beating it I haven’t touched it. I think my final playtime was like 80 some hours.


              this game is actual garbage and if you spent money or time on this trash, you are a moron.


              I found it to be pretty good, the best part is actually feeling like you are a part of the wizardinf world but the combat was surprisingly really fun. Too bad the plot was kinda meh and rushed, and I wish there was more school/everyday activities


                @Tardo : What a mature and rational reply. Someone enjoys something you don’t like, or should I say “trash”, and they are a “moron”. Enjoy that mentality, I am sure it will get you through life with NO problems…

                Nothing like digging up a nearly year old thread to insult and demean people heh? And, above that, creating a profile on these forums JUST come do that. Well, most of us on here don’t take kindly to harassment, etc. We choose to be civil to eachother and respect opinions without childishness on here. So, enjoy your stay.


                I admit I never really played Hogwarts Legacy but I watched the shit show that it caused among crazy activists and leftists. But from what I hear the game is quite good and not that woke. It is why it did so well hell even YellowFlash and Ryan K Outpost were enjoying the crap outta it. But again I must mention I admit I never played the sucker myself and do not plan to likely but I am happy to see it did well just so the salt could be rubbed in the wounds of all the angry activists out there.

                Maybe log out of internet for a week or two and enjoy life a bit if a game you never played or paid for makes you bent out of shape because of how some activists reacted to it


                Wait what? I don’t think you saw the kind of energy and timing those activists were on when Hogwarts Legacy came out and what they were doing during that time span some of it downright vile. You are damn right I was going to be cheering this game on to succeed even if I have not played it myself.
