We love to get pissed off about the trivial and ideally grab headlines in the process.
Nowhere is this more evident, perhaps, than in the world of videogaming. Over the years there have been plenty of games boycotted and whined about for somewhat legitimate reasons like excessive and wanton sexuality and running really fast with really really sharp scissors. But these aren't those games. These are games that were boycotted and bitched about for the dumbest, goofiest reasons anyone could imagine.
