'British tabloid The Sun, which ran the characteristically melodramatic headline: ’Lara Croft in Island Rape Hell’.'

The Sun, the only UK newspaper that has any respectability in the industry...thats why the first thing you encounter when you turn the front page is a pair of t*tties.

The controversy came from outside of the gaming community as is always the case when the contented of video games is taken out of context.

People are desperate for sales, ratings, and hits. That and the ignorant factor are the only reason this is even an issue. Movies have rapes all tthe time. Have you seen Irreversible? Monica Belluci literally gets violently anally raped for 10 minutes.

In a movie called " I spit on your grave" there was a woman who was getting raped by 5 men.

In a game, talk about rape? people go crazy!

If there was something about cutting off her head. No one would say a word.

Sex and rape is still much worse than murder here in 2012.

Sex and rape and murder happening every day, worldwide.

I know what I think is the worst, murder of course.!
