None said the game was offending or degrading.eniac0 said:honestly, I've watched the video and i really don't see what is everyone so fussed about.
That it gets a 12+ rating, ok, fine, that's discussable.
But the game itself? pff, hell, if ubisoft feels there's money to be made there, why shouldn't they try? innovation has often been a great way to start a trend and make money (Minecraft anyone?) and, the other thing is, deny it or not, sex is lucrative. So, as far as being a precursor for that type of game goes, i see no problem.
On the debatable topic of sex games, how exactly is that game offensive or degrading? how exactly is it different from the usual porn magazine or video that all male adults peek at every now and then? yeah yeah, its taboo, and so are porn magazine and yet, they're still kinda part of our culture because they're mentionned pretty often in movies, books and songs. and all males thinks that Playboy, the brand, is actually cool even if no one wants to get caught with a magazine in their closet.
I think that the reality we need to face is that we are growing to be a gamer society, no longer is gaming restricted to dorks that watch star wars in their sleep while playing AD&D. There's no reason why sex games cannot be included as part of an evening between consenting adults if they so choose, or just with your partner if that's what you prefer.
Playing this game doesn't stop a person from "getting a life", going out, having fun or getting high, it just adds on top of the stuff we can already do.
Anyway, I'm not trying to defend the game by no means, i am simply not understanding why the writer takes such an offended nun stance on it and why the readers are following because, seriously, the first thought that occurred to me after viewing the video was "ok, so what?"
Keep some for me. I need to wash my eyes.Soviet Heavy said:Excuse me, I need to go drink a bottle of bleach....
I think it's fair to say most of the people in this thread are saying the whole idea of this game is bad. And those crying for bleach (brain or eye variety) are definitely claiming offence. People like eniac0 and myself are disagreeing with those suppositions: We're arguing the game's idea is fine, and while debates of quality (of game or ad) are fine, the premise behind it isn't something worthy of such attacks.AnubisAuman said:None said the game was offending or degrading.
They were just saying that the game is lame.
