I Shouldn't Be Gaming Right Now… But I Am!

New And Amazing Virtual Stupidity

Posted by deckard47 on January 15, 2008

Alright, I don’t know how many people have read about this, but there is a site called Townhall.com which recently put an article up warning us all about the dangers of Mass Effect. The guy (a Mr. Kevin McCullough) warns us of many different and dangerous elements of Mass Effect. There is a lot of dumb stuff in there, ignorant, uninformed, crazy, etc. I want to give you a portrait of what he believes is going on, as the game he believes exists probably consists of advanced sexmolutions being beamed directly into your child’s crib, using virtual interwebs and high-definition IPs. Or something. Seriously though, check it out, he warns you that:

“the video game persons hump in every form, format, multiple, gender-oriented possibility they can think of.”

Because honestly, when you can make a gay alien character, what’s next? Non-white non-straight characters (which would totally be scary)… Oh wait, you can’t, not in Mass Effect, only the female avatar can have sex with another “female” (and that female alien is one-sex/sexless which makes the whole heterosexual fear thing even more laughable), and the male character is restricted to heterosexual relationships (which probably make a lot of fanboyz less nervous, to be sure). 

Which is all beside the point, because he never played the game and is a crazy alarmist, as well as being an alarming homophobe. But still, I mean:

“With it’s “over then net “ capabilities virtual orgasmic rape is just the push of a button away.”

What!? I mean… I knew that the interwebs would be involved. Again, seriously, me and every other site that is covering this are probably giving the guy way too much coverage, but maybe this will just make more people realize how nuts people can get. About a woman having sex with a blue hair-as-tentacles imaginary alien. I kind of hope that Bioware does something like this (sex) in Jade Empire 2. Think about how angry Mr. McCullough would get if there were people from China having (possibly, God forbid, not straight) sex.

Maybe I don’t want to think about his reaction.
