T"Women should not be the goal of a match, a thing that two teams are striving to possess. Just writing out exactly what transpired sounds so incredibly dirty and wrong. She is a woman, a person just like any other, and should be treated like an independent being capable of more than crying desperately and waiting to be saved."----What does the author here expect this lady to do? She has 5 heavily armed assailants who have tied her hands. She obviously knows that people are coming to save her. I would also say that this is a very stressful situation, and I sure as hell would be crying also. Again, there very well could be (and most likely are) male hostages as well, they just weren't shown in the demo (which shouldn't necessarily be interpreted as a message, either).

This author is just ridiculous. He even laments how the woman only 'follows the nearest person.' Well, that DOES baffle me. Why don't we just have that woman be freed, grab a gun off the nearest dead body, and start charging through with her saviors to kill the intruders. It's not like the setting was in the Boston suburbs...aren't all suburban moms trained in small-group, tactical warfare? It's not because it's a female hostage that the representation is a helpless person, it's the very situation itself. You can put anyone in that situation, barring former military, and they'll be helpless.


Yeah, I don't think the special forces would ever give an untrained civilian a gun in this kind of situation, male or female. They want them to get out as soon as possible, not kill the captors.


dont they like usually handcuff the hostage so they dont do anything dumb?

That article is pure gamespot garbo.

If the hostage was black, it'd be called biggoted or racist because it would be implying black people are held hostage more frequently... yawn.

Move along people.

Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Because it is a misogynistic, sexist game representative of the stone age patriarchy we've been fighting against for a millennia. We need to remove this garbage from our video games to protect our children and teach them to be caring of women and their plight as they struggle to take a stand against this terrible, disgusting, putrid excuse of a patriarch driven society. We must rise against misogyny!!


I like you ed, also you should of said #allwomen


I liked you at first, but then you edited your post.

The editing didn't bother me so much as what was contained within the editing.


Go get a room

Boo hoo, don't play it then. Nobody cares but you sensitive people who are offended by everything. You politically correct people are what's wrong with everything. "Let's change this because I'M offended! Waaa!"

I find the world being largely implicitly racist against caucasian males, as the only thing that's okay to kill in video games. I feel offended.
