Tomb Raider is back and better than ever at Eurogamer
What rape scene? This is bullshit. There was never a rape scene. A guy pins Lara against something and slides his hand down the side of her body ever so slightly before she cans him. This is a stupid fantasy made up by idiot journalists (I use this term very loosely here) and editors to spark a controversy founded on absolutely nothing just for hits. I really, REALLY hate the media this generation. Moral-less asstards with no integrity. It's the cancer killing this industry.
I'm just going to agree with you and leave. I have not raped you. I say again: I HAVE NOT RAPED YOU!
You think that running your hands over a tied-up, non consenting woman is not a big deal and you call journalists immoral? It isn't rape in a penetrative sense but I'd still call it sexual assault, serious sexual assault. The implication that he intends to rape Lara is there, clearly; like most people, other writers included, I'd consider that rape.
He didn't say fondling non-consenting women was moral, you're putting words in his mouth. You would consider that rape when it is, in fact, not. Sexual assault is not automatically rape; merely having the intent does not make it rape, nor does having attempted. What he did was sexual assault, but on a level lesser than molestation (as he did not touch her breasts or genitals).
*Sees an apple roll across the floor* "HOLY **** IT'S A BANANA!" O.o
I dont think a game would have a rape scene in it out here.. Thats pretty intense & will get shut down before it makes it to shelves.. Anyway i know its no rape scene, cuz if it were, it wouldnt be released w/o an AO rating or released at all
Rapelay says hi. Just sayin.... lol
whats that? i never heard of it.. A game released in the US? wow i didnt know that
There's a rape scene in the new tomb raider? Sorry I don't keep track of this game.
If you consider a man putting his hand on a young woman's ass rape then yea. It does not mean that the man wouldn't have done so if Lara didn't knee him in the balls, and I think shoot him in the face. If the situation went in his favor im sure he would have raped her. BUT this did not happen.
Author here. Considering the stories that came out after the trailer first broke, I and everyone else uses 'rape' as a shorthand, so people know what's being referred to. Personally, I'd still consider what happens to Lara rape, or sexual assault, and I think it shows a lack of respect and understanding to women to say 'what's the big deal? All he does is tie her up and grab her a bit.' as if that's just harmless fun. Lara is strong enough to fight him off, but she's still been violated; we cant shrug that kind of scene off just because its easier on our conscence.
I'd consider attempted/implied rape cause enough to describe something as a rape scene.
