Crystal Dynamics: When Denial Turns Creepy

The Tomb Raider controversy as seen by Camine, who confronts employees of Crystal Dynamics and disambiguates the unfortunately opaque issue:

I make life difficult for myself when I write these columns. I can easily agonize over exact word choices for hours, then end up crunched for time and at a loss for any words at all. Like most roads to Hell, my indecision is paved with good intentions. I want what I say to transmit what I mean. Even very small thoughts branch off easily into countless other thoughts. It's easy for me to get wrapped up in ideas that are related to my point, but not actually relevant to it. Staying on point, being direct and not giving in to attractive distractions are challenges for me. (Crystal Dynamics, E3, Industry, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

I hate to be the person who comes in quoting the dictionary and god knows what, but last time I checked rape was the sexual assault of someone involving sexual intercourse.

I checked the video and I didn't see any sexual intercourse with Lara. Sure I saw about 3 seconds of a man who was getting quite close to Lara with his hands on her, but really the rest was left to the viewer and it seems that some viewers decided to take it as rape.

Tell me you have never seen a film where the evil bad guy gets quite up close to a woman protagonist who has been caught and maybe places his hands on her in a suggestive way. I suppose we should go and class all those as rape as well.

There is a point where you can look too far into things and some people just love to do it.
