[QUOTE=Motherfuckers;36391576]Way to dodge the issue with a completely tangential sidestep, I'm saying portal is a shitty game based on a passing comment about my wealth and organs, while it may seem pointless to you I am DEEPLY OFFENDED by that statement. Which makes portal a shitty game for kids. PLEASE tell me you're getting this, I'm being DEEPLY OFFENDED by what would seem to be NOT A BIG DEAL[/QUOTE] Nobody cares if you're offended. Derision is the issue, not offense. You people need to understand that this issue is not as simple as "i am offended." [editline]18th June 2012[/editline] also why on earth would you let your kids play portal [editline]18th June 2012[/editline] it's a game about being toyed with by a homicidal maniac
[QUOTE=Lankist;36391600]Nobody cares if you're offended. Derision is the issue, not offense.[/QUOTE] YES DERISION IS THE ISSUE, I feel completely derided by that passing statement because I happen to be in a small minority of people who would probably be upset by it. How about I just spell it out for you so you can't actually argue since you're terrible at it, what I am saying is that the game didn't DELIBERATELY deride people who are poor and afraid of having their organs stolen, it was a joke, RAPE in tomb raider isn't a deliberate attack of rape victims, it's a plot device. Besides the only reason this is a big deal is because new media is evil, TV, books and many other mediums have approached the issue of rape in worse and more callous ways, but nobody gives a shit about them.

I mean I dunno about you but after watching game of thrones all I want to do is fuck my sister.
Why should we care? They show little kids being brutally murdered in some of the silent hill games, and has anyone complained? NOPE Some monsters and enviroments even symbolize rape, and has anyone complained? NOPE
[QUOTE=sHiBaN;36391406]Why is there even an argument about it? Video games need to advance. Only people who say its about feminism are more ignorant about what feminism is[/QUOTE] IIRC, Feminists actually like it when rape is portrayed in media because it's portrayed as a negative thing and it spreads awareness of crimes like rape and sexual assault.
[QUOTE=RidleySmash;36391780]Why should we care? They show little kids being brutally murdered in some of the silent hill games, and has anyone complained? NOPE[/QUOTE] Well you see, Tomb Raider is more famous, and attracts a wider audiences attention, Now when you get a wider audience, you are bound to come across assholes who want a slice of that audience pie, now these assholes say "well it's a slow news day, time to stir up the other assholes with a sensationalist headline" and than they whip their asshole puppets into a frenzy to create controversy and website hits off the resulting internet retards outrage, both real and false.

[QUOTE=thisispain;36391968]the fuck is an audience pie[/QUOTE] S'like a metaphorical thing, like "A slice of the pie" It means they want some of that wider audience to give them website hits. I've gotta stop using sarcasm and metaphors and analogies on the internet...
[QUOTE=thisispain;36337014]brilliant, in order for the character to evolve she must be sexually assaulted![/QUOTE] Why not? At this point she knows how to survive but not how to defend herself, and this situation brings up the right moment for her to prove herself, or die. It's the exact same as someone pointing a gun at Max Payne, just different context.
