Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Aprrently, some atheists and non-Chirstian groups are offended by the world "Chirstmas" because it has the word "Chirst" in it.  I guess it is some type of strawman to piss people off and cause a flame war.

Yeah, I understand that, but for the sake of the kids, they can just get their heads out of their asses and get over it.  This isn't the season to be an asshole, it is the season to come together with family and friends.

Also for the Aussie Gamers who don't have snow, perhaps the OFLC should make a Christmas card with a hot sunny day at the Beach and Santa in his swimming clothes delivering PlayStation 2, 3 & PSPs, XBox360s and Nintendo Wii's and DS's.


And hopefully in the next two years there could be an R18+ rating for Videogames if all goes well.

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

After having an icecicle land on my head, this warms my heart.

Happy holidays all!

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Come on, it's Christmas/Hanukkah/Quanza/etc. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

i dunno with all the religious descrimination during this season should the holidays be rated "E"?

more like "T" or something perhaps... :p

 

j/k not a fan of the holidays, but doesn't mean others aren't, so have fun all!

the age of the gamer is beginning and '08 was merely the start :)

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Makes me wonder what a 'T' or 'M' version might look like... ;P

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

political correctness is in itself politically incorrect.

its actually more polite to call someone a retard (Slow) that it is to call the mentaly ill (messed up)

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

Re: ESRB Holiday Card

I've never actually heard of anyone who objects to the word Christmas, methinks it's just a giant strawman.

Although if such a person did exist you get to ignore them.

As we all know people can get offended by anything.

Andrew EisenI read the Kotaku story. Nowhere does it say anything close to "Gamers are white bigoted sexist losers." It's commenting specifically on the crap being slung at people discussing gender issues in games. So, what's the problem?09/17/2014 - 4:06pm
Andrew EisenYeah, I can imagine Spiderwoman posed like in your second link.09/17/2014 - 4:00pm
Andrew EisenThat's not the same pose. Spiderman (who is wearing an actual outfit rather than body paint) is crouched low to the ground. Kinda like a spider! Spiderwoman has her butt up in the air like she's waiting to be mounted.09/17/2014 - 3:59pm
quiknkoldAndrew Eisen : Kotaku did a whiole article on it, as did others http://kotaku.com/we-might-be-witnessing-the-death-of-an-identity-162820307909/17/2014 - 3:59pm
CMinerQuiknkold: Do you think that there are no cases where a piece of art (painting, movie, videogame, comic cover, etc) is unambiguously sexist?09/17/2014 - 3:58pm
quiknkoldand can you imagine if Spiderwoman was posed like this? http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/spider-man1.jpg09/17/2014 - 3:58pm
Andrew EisenWhat games outlet is writing articles saying "Gamers are white bigoted sexist losers"? What examples have you seen of journalists being paid off for favorable reviews? Who's shaming what now? What's the problem with critiquing the Spiderwoman cover?09/17/2014 - 3:57pm
james_fudgeWell there's def "politics" involved in this issue. The movement was hamstrung by bad behavior and illegal activites here. We would have covered it more if not for those unforutnate happenings.09/17/2014 - 3:56pm

quiknkoldJames_fudge : I feel like the people challenging Games are the same people who Challenge Art because Michaelangelo's David shows Wang. The problem is, alot of things with Games are left to the eye of the beholder. One Person see's Sexist Antiwomen views.09/17/2014 - 3:55pm
E. Zachary Knightquiknkold, I don't recall Spider-man's costume conforming to the contour of his buttcrack.09/17/2014 - 3:54pm
quiknkoldIts the same Agenda Fueled Journalism youd find on Fox News or MSNBC. I appreciate Gamepolitics for just stating the facts.09/17/2014 - 3:54pm
james_fudgeQuiknold: you're entitled to your opinion on creatives being left alone. Others are entitled to their opinions that they should be challenged.09/17/2014 - 3:53pm
quiknkoldI can point specifically to the Spiderwoman Milos Manara cover as an example. Not strictly VG Related, its still the same example of journalists attacking Milos's artwork, claiming its sexist, when its the exact same pose Spider-man has done on a cover.09/17/2014 - 3:52pm
quiknkolddevices, and then we can discus the merits of the game. and then there's the people exchanging money and other things to game journalists for favorable reviews and articles, while also shaming those who may criticize these articles09/17/2014 - 3:51pm
