Opinion: Women - Stop Ruining God Of War And Make Me A Sandwich

NowGamer Opinion: How the 'Bros Before Hos' God of War trophy proves gaming has become a byword for knee-jerk reactions to misogyny that doesn't exist. (God of War, Industry, PS3)

Yep, it's completely overblown and idiotic to protest this. If you're saying women deserve special attention in games, that's a sexist statement in itself. Not to mention the scene wasn't even anything that bad compared to bashing Zeus's face in as long as you want while the screen was covered in red blood.

If any day you are in a bad mood. Just pop in God of War 3 and keep bashing Zues's face into the ground as long as your heart desires.

Who needs therapy when you can feel better playing a video game! :P

WOW, didn't a know a female producer came up with the trophy. Wonder how the Sess would feel about hearing that.

I guarantee he's going to respond with something like "oh she's a tomboy, she don't count" or "She was paid to say it's ok however in some unconfirmed, made up interview she didn't agree and was told if she wanted to keep her job to stay quiet."


Now anyone can call "foul" on a trophy/achievement and with enough complaining the companies will start re-naming them to shut the public up.

Sess thinks it's awesome that people still know who he is and that he got a bunch of hits from it.

Santa monica studios has a lot of woman in their development team. Its the sissy game journalists that have a problem with it!!
morganfell  +   798d ago
Agreed. Other than people like Sessler opening their mouth instead of quietly disappearing off the face of the earth the only other issue is Sony Santa Monica giving in when they should have held their ground.

It's not even journalists... it's simply Sessler who stirred the pot about this non-issue. The thing that pisses me off is he had the audacity to call anyone who didn't take issue with the trophy a "sadist fratboy", and that he wants to never be associated with people who didn't find the trophy repulsive. Well, F him... If he didn't like the trophy, so be it... it's his choice to find it distasteful. But to not only shun, but to insult people who don't care... or even find it funny... now that's distasteful. People like that are bigots... plane and simple. If you don't think like them, then you are wrong and don't deserve any respect. Well, I said it before, and I'll say it again... F HIM!!!

i don't go online anyway
so i didn't get that patch that change the trophy name

it has nothing to do with what Sessler said

Sessler did that "knee-jerk reaction" to the trophy
only to look cool to women ..guess what ?! you still won't get laid

I just don't get it.

Out of everything that happens across all GOW games.. a trophy name was singled out for criticism?

It's a game anything that comes out of games is just for the fun of it. The whole trophy is just making fun of the phrase that people use. Don't see why journalist see that. Honestly people need to just sit back and enjoy the game. DON'T question everything that comes up and bring reality to it. Such a Buzz kill!!

I agree that the reaction to this is overblown.

However, I kinda have a problem with the title of this article. First of all, it's not "women" who are ruining it; a lot of the people complaining are men (Sessler, journalists, etc...). Secondly, the author is ruining his own credibility with the "make me a sandwich" part.
GreenRanger  +   798d ago
That title is downright childish.

I think stuff like this shows just how far off we are from being a genderblind society. Men and women will always have differences and sadly, there are sexist people out there that that will judge you because of what sex you are.If someone makes a jokes and another person laughs, that's a truly tolerant society but kicking up a fuss at every little thing that offends just makes you an intolerant little child that has vision of world that is simply a pipe dream.

However, there was was one line I heard somewhere that I thought was very true. If you're a woman living in the western world and you feel oppressed then you really need to adjust the way you view the world. You have just as many rights as men and in some cases, more.

Worst of all, I've seen like...two women make a comment on this trophy 'controversy'. The rest are white knight males. Ok Sir Types-A-Lot, defend women all you want but you must realize that by stepping up and thinking you have to defend women, you're essentially saying they can't defend themselves and that they need a man like to defend them and pretty much saying they're the weaker sex. Plus it won't get you laid.

Exactly. The reality of the difference in the biological makeup of men and women will never allow a gender-blind utopian society to happen. No matter how much social engineering and "equality" laws you can come up with, nature will eventually rear its ugly head.

Co-sign. I don't think they even believe that women are equal themselves. Not with the way they're keeping them on the pedestal. Or with the way they're treating them like children that must be coddled and protected 24/7.

I don't think many women are offended by the trophy, it's the pathetic white knights throwing their own gender under a bus that are getting sand in their manginas. I hate them so much it's probably bordering on unhealthy.

I don't really give a crap either way about the GoW trophy, but I can't say I'm a fan of any author who uses a title like that as a hook for hits.

I get the idea, but in the end he's taking an actual sexist slur that's commonly heard online, and he's using it 'ironically' as an attention grabber.

Really I think sensationalism is a bigger problem in this industry than sexism, mostly because it's actively encouraged.
