My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is… well, it’s a cautionary tale about how a bunch of disgusting fans can completely ruin a series by wildly misunderstanding a show’s appeal by trying to deny it to its target audience. But it’s also a charming, sweet, and fun show with a spectacular cast and a lot of wonderful writing. It’s the sort of thing that’s tailor-made for producing a whole lot of great video games, with some episodes seemingly demonstrating exactly what you could do with such a game (there’s a race episode that practically begs for a kart racer).
This is an article I feel pretty strongly about, but it’s also one I’ve been reluctant to write. I mean, all that stuff about fans totally misunderstanding the show and the fandom? Damn if there’s no risk of me looking like exactly one of those people. I’d sooner set fire to my hair than buy into the whole disgusting nature of the Brony fandom, but much like with last Friday’s RP article, I worry a great deal about being misunderstood. It could actually be a pretty serious problem.
Still, I hope this finished version comes out as fun to read. Enjoy!
I’m surprised they haven’t made an Animal Crossing type MLP game. It’s the perfect kind of genre for it.
