Opinion: Oversensitive? Not Sensitive Enough

NZ Gamer - "I'm offended by that. Well, so f**king what?" - Stephen Fry.

A cute quote about the overuse of the word "offence". It's totally not applicable here, though. When you're talking about racism and sexual violence, it’s not about offence. These are things that happen every day to real people. Women and people of colour can’t escape them. Seeing them in a videogame, a medium that "has the most potential to drive a consumer through its story or experience", isn't simply offensive - it's disgusting. Moreover, these act as triggers to the people who have experienced these things in the past.

The story is too old to be commented.
