Bioware "pushing our next generation of young men through the gates of hell"

The newest offering from Bioware has been uncovered as a rape-simulator by respected blogger Kevin McCullough in this article.

 Mass Effect - Alien Dancer (2)

The game is aimed at 15 year old boys, and being sold disguised as

“a war game with a deadly virus that is spreading unless the GI-Joes are able to defeat the evil and deadly substance and it’s covert war plan.”

Where after a short section of “generic gameplay” the game turns into a young lad’s dream; ready to be “customized to sodomize whatever, whoever, however, the game player wishes.” Yes, because all young boys just LOVE sodomy.. He continues to sum up the experience of the game;

“It’s called “Mass Effect” and it allows its players – universally male no doubt – to engage in the most realistic sex acts ever conceived. One can custom design the shape, form, bodies, race, hair style, breast size of the images they wish to “engage” and then watch in crystal clear, LCD, 54 inch screen, HD clarity as the video game “persons” hump in every form, format, multiple, gender-oriented possibility they can think of.

The objections to such filth should be simple to understand.

Starting with the disgusting idea that one can “create” their own versions of what people look like, removing warts, moles, and bald spots while enhancing – shall we say – the extended features of the game’s characters tends to objectify women, sex, and human relationships. Right? We can all agree on this?”

 

“Now if I have trouble with my son taking his James Bond 007 games a little too emotionally, imagine the powerful effect that hormones add to the mix when the player’s own character is copulating like jack rabbits with super-models, actresses, and anyone else they can spend the patience to create, name, and ‘put into play’.”

And with the extensive online features provided by the 360

“virtual orgasmic rape is just the push of a button away.”

I don’t think this journalist even looked at the game, or any 007 games for that matter. I barely even understand what’s going on in most Bond games, unless I’ve seen the associated film, so they would be hard to express any emotion over.

Most gamers will be well aware that the only custom options you can change for your own character in Mass Effect are their sex and a few face/hair colour and style options, no input on boob size, unless that’s an unlockable for completing the game on insane difficulty.

The only thing that is certain anymore when you pick a game off the shelf is that it will force you to take the renegade path through life, including but not limited to; sodomy, rape, murder, and the genocide of an entire alien race that was previously thought to be extinct. Kevin remarks that through their work, game developers

“seem to be pushing our next generation of young men through the gates of hell as fast as is humanly possible”

According to Mr. McCullough, a history of viewing pornography is a vital contributing factor in serial killer cases. And including pornography in games accessible by 15 year olds is practically like telling kids to go out and see if a voice in the sky really shouts KILL-TACULAR! at you after a spree with a 9mm.

Right. So hands up who’s actually played Mass Effect? Now, hands up how many of you have tried to kill someone because of the ‘sex’ scenes in the game? Or even how many of you have actually seen the scenes? In my experience, actually being mature enough to play the game to the depth required to see those scenes means you’ve probably seen your fair share of the dirty stuff before. Aside from that, the ‘sex scenes’ shown in Mass Effect are hardly porn; they would leave even a 12 year old boy dry in the downstairs department. Though, I haven’t quite got to the girl on unisex alien bits yet…

I was going to put this story aside along with all the other people in the mainstream press doing minimal research into a game and accidentally making it look bad in front of other people equally inexperienced in the world of video games (a la Chana Joffe-Walt). But no, this guy only stops to bad-mouth the government briefly, and gets right back into telling us all how video games are pure evil.

Even worse, he puts the reader into a ‘typical’ situation where they see a young gamer sat in front of a 54″ HD LCD tv, watching what can only be described as interactive porn, with super-models, and a wealth of custom-designed obviously completely naked characters from every species, which is training his mind to become a ruthless serial killer, much like after experiencing sex in real life, that makes you want to kill, right? Jack Thompson eat your heart out. One of the bits I find particularly amusing is that all 15 year old kids have a 54″ HDTV in their bedrooms, away from the prying eyes of family.

If I had of seen his article before the release, I would have been looking forward to November 23rd SO much more, but I would have been very disappointed when it turned out that you don’t even get to see a nipple.
