I want everyone to watch this Fox News broadcast and see how intelligent this "expert" is. This is over the controversial remarks an expert made, claiming Mass Effect was pornography, a game which she has never played.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0kdm7fg804


EDIT: I do realize this might seem like it is about a video game, but I assure you, this has nothing to do with gaming, but rather all forms of expression itself. Is music next? Or rather, again?

can anyone honestly take anything serious thats on Fox news anymore???

i no i cant

Yeah I saw that video. Remember, everyone, video games are the cause of all of our problems. Not people. Also, if you don't want your kids to do something, the best solution is to hide it from them and pretend that it doesn't exist. Sex, violence, and drugs are not real, no one should know what any of those are.

And that bitches book got rated terribly over this, with people commenting "well, I haven't read it but I am sure it is bad for kids" and the like. She did make a public apology but the damage was done.

Oh, and I've played through Mass Effect twice and have yet to get the sex scene. I was probably due to me trying to have sex with the human girl (because sex with an alien is pretty much like having sex with an animal) so I would never get anywhere with her and just kill her off.

So it's ok to go over there shooting aliens, but it's wrong to show the female body , even though it's rated M.
She just said "kids're going to play, not their dad"? Ignorant bitch! She should know that the average gamers age is 20+.

It is 33 in the US. I actually did a research paper on it in my college writing class.

You get to see half a boob as well! I mean oh my god, half of a boob. It is perfectly okay though for me to turn on the news and see soldiers being blown up. Having sex is something necessary to keep the race going, but killing on the other hand, helps fuel the economy more.

So if your dog "looked like a human" it would be okay to have sex with it? Of course not.

you win the award for the "most stupid analogy I have ever seen" treasure it

EDIT-

Watch I can do it too

So your saying that something that looks, acts and speaks like a human but with minor differences is considered a taboo for sexual appeal



Holy ****!!!! its an animal!!!

ahh this is fun

Actually, interacial relationships are fairly taboo.

But technically "race" has more to do with being a human or not. As with the alien, which is a completely different species. Therefore, it is like having sex with an animal.

I'm not arguing that race has to do with being like an animal. Biologically speaking, there's aren't enough differences between blacks, whites, latin folk, asians, etc to actually justify calling them a separate race. I'm answering his question as to whether or not it is taboo to be with someone of another heritage, which it is. Especially in America. Hell, I'm the product of an interacial relationship, and I've always been with people from different heritages than my own, and I still look twice when I see a black guy with a white woman, etc, etc.

I don't think it's a bad thing, I'm just saying: Yes it is considered taboo.

We weren't talking about race as in skin colors. I was talking about an alien being about the same interspecies as a dog. He then responded with the picture of a black guy, calling him an animal. He is just being racist and ignorant. He should be on Fox News!

He was proving a point, I don't think he's actually racist. But I was arguing with his analogy, not his point.

And he does have a point anyway, the alien is a humanoid, it's not some kind of weird alien. But to be honest, I would do terrible things for a Twilek.

I've played though it round a freinds and gone though the alien sex scen, he's done the other 2 sex scenes (yes Ashley Isn't the only other one).

It really isn't anything more then something found on TV before 9. (altough I live in UK were one BBC show gets to show the boobies of very fat and skinny women)

Anyway I feel like this is appropriate: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04nbvLXLWHA&feature=related
