Petition to cancel Far Cry 5 reads a lot like something the game would parody

Clearly fake

I’ve always been interested in compiling a list of petitions in the gaming sphere.

Seeing which ones worked, which ones didn’t, and nail down a success rate. Many like Project Rainfall have gotten what they wanted, and others spawned unity like 100,000 Strong for Bringing Back Mega Man Legends 3 even if they didn’t ultimately get their wish. Some have no chance — like this Far Cry 5 petition.

Tired of “multicultural lectures and preachy games,” this petition “draws a line in the sand,” and demands that Ubisoft cancel the game. It should only take you two paragraphs (if that) to see that it’s likely fake. My favorite part is the requested alteration of the villains to “misguided patriots.”

The reaction Far Cry 5 has been getting is more entertaining than any clip, tease, or gameplay announcement.
