Developers Should Stop Using The Word 'Savage'

This guy has a problem with using the word "savage" in a game title but has no problem, as a professional writer, dropping f-bombs and describing something he liked as "dope" and things he didn't as "racist as f*ck."

My eyes rolled right the f*ck out of my head when I read the title of this game at its reveal at the 2018 Game Awards. I know I sound like a wet blanket, but just… hear me out. The word savage has a long history being used to justify violent behavior by colonizers.
