Opinion: Hogwarts Legacy: Let streamers be

   The new game, Hogwarts Legacy, that was released on Friday, Feb. 10, has been getting attacked by the by the LGBTQ+ community. Thanks to what J.K Rowling, the Harry Potter author, said towards the trans community, they have been attacking every streamer who has been playing this new game. They have tried many ways to get people to stop playing this game by making a website that can see any streamer that has played the game to cancel them. They have also tried to stop streamers by attacking them on their streams and messing with the streamer’s community.  


   Since the trans community started attacking streamers and the creators of Hogwarts Legacy, the game has skyrocketed in popularity. Hogwarts Legacy has become one of the most played games in America right now; it has outplayed Elden Ring and God of War Ragnarök. It has also become the most viewed game on Twitch and the most played on Steam. Sadly, this game has also been getting attacked by reviewers who are now giving it a very low score. 

     The game is also soon to become even bigger with the developers wanting to add more features to the game like multiplayer, even more quests and missions to embark on. Everyone who has been playing Hogwarts Legacy has been waiting for these new expansions to the game, which will help attract more people to join this community.  

   I, for one, have been in love with this game Hogwarts Legacy, as it is one of the biggest games I have been waiting for to come out. Since this game came out, I have been on the nonstop grind and have been giving up a lot of my time to it. This game had my biggest expectations, and it has lived up to it, and I can’t wait to see what the developers decide to put into this game next. The more I keep playing Hogwarts Legacy, the more I just want to stay on the grind, because you can very much tell this game was not rushed.  

   Also, with the Hogwarts game, they are now adding more and more features to it like a beta of multiplayer. They have also included some mods that give some players a piece of joy because they can now attack professors and students. With these mods, you can also do some other things that I shall leave for some adventurous players to find out. Going back to the trans community attacks on this game, I think that they should let anyone who plays it be because everyone. Whoever plays this game just wants to have some fun and enjoy a game that they have been waiting for so very long.  

   Right now, only new gen consoles like Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5, plus PC can play this game. The lower consoles like Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be able to get this game in Tuesday, April 4th. And if anyone is going to be playing it on a Nintendo Switch, it will be coming out for them on Tuesday, July 25. 

   I give the game Hogwarts Legacy 5 out of 5 Lanterns.
