i've been thinking about some r&c headcanons lately. mostly about lombaxian(?) societies and such (this journal is not about my ideas tho). i think it would be really cool if one day we get to see them... and they're not as noble as the rumors say. they had colonies. they had army big enough to take on the entire cragmite empire. and that's a pretty bad sign if you ask me. thing that bothers me is that it was said lombaxes 'knew that something had to be done' about the cragmite expansion. it is implied they did it out of feeling of injustice happening or some other shit. thing is, that's not how common political sense works. no country (planet) would endanger their own people and culture to save some alien societies, ESPECIALLY not out of feeling of injustice happening. jesus, just look at how europe and america reacted to russia invading ukraine.

this entire story seems very.... unrefined, so to speak. i feel like it was not thought through and through by the writers, perhaps? it bothers me how lombaxes are portrayed as the good guys. remember, history is written by the winners, and the lombaxes won.

this got me into thinking about the series' overall nature, and i've noticed something. insomniac claims that r&c is aimed at older audience, not children. by which they mean, it would seem, 'there are sex jokes in there'. why not create a more dense plot, with actual social commentaries? if they really want to aim at 'older audiences' why not give them something to actually chew on? they already have gameplay mechanics perfected. they know what they're doing with their designs. so why not?

but perhaps this loosely told story is a setup for something like this. i highly doubt it - creating an actual social commentary requires effort. and bravery. to create something that tackles a existing problem, one has to be prepared for serious conversations and critiques. i feel like the writers don't want to touch that, they want to keep things status quo. it's the safe way. and it's typical, really, i would not be surprised at all if that were true. another thing is, it's possible they didn't even notice this undertone...

and one last thing - don't get me wrong, i am a huge fan of this series. and this is exactly why i'm saying this. as a fan i want to see a series grow and improve, and i feel like actual social commentaries implemented into it would make it to be so much more.
