  1. Were people really freaking out over the fact that tracer has a butt? jfc.. This is like that feminazi talking about women being oversexualized in every game for showing some skin, honestly, i dont mind, considering girl do have bodies in real life too.

  2. lol funny thing is Fahrenheit yah char has sex with the officer chick in the train no one gave a shit bout that but when it comes to gta ppl just like complain bout completely irrelevant shit

  3. I remember that whole “Night Trap” controversy. I rented it from Blockbuster solely because it supposedly contained “racy images of underwear clad women.” The game was so godawful, that I don’t think “full-nudity” would have sold it and I’m not surprised that these congressmen never even played it. I actually think they did more to sell the very few copies of it than anything.

  4. I don't understand.
    There ARE games about killing women, killing animals, having sex, and satanism.
    If these people want to get mad, they would do well to direct it to those games.

  5. Video games are art. If there not. Neither is music or movies or architecture. You can make statues of nude women and say its art. Why can't you have a fully clothed girl with too big tits and it be called art. You can have a painting of a dead guy and call it gothic art you but you can't have realistic dead people in a game without it being called too graphic. You can have paintings about sex and it be seen as art but if its in a video game then why is it seen as bad and labelled sexual?
