Opinion: Rise of the Oversensitive Gamer

NZ Gamer - Videogame controversy has been around almost as long as games themselves. From the incredibly distasteful rape scene in 1982's Custer's Revenge, through to 2003's Postal 2 which included "offensive depiction of cruelty," there always seems to be a developer trying to push the limits of what is acceptable. As the medium becomes more mainstream, however, it seems that the stigma attached to those that call themselves gamers is causing people to over-compensate in defense of their beloved pastime.

The story is too old to be commented.
