"The very fact that Metal Gear Solid is receiving so much bad publicity for its treatment of Paz and Quiet only serves to highlight the hypocrisy of the gaming community."

I couldn't agree more with this statement. Clearly the people complain either have an agenda or have no idea what they are talking about. This whole issue is knee deep in hypocrisy and is only serving to expose people with their little agenda's that don't really care about the issue.

How can you argue with money bro?

I didn't even know people had a problem with what happened to Paz (spoilers ahead). If a guy where to get blown up, with a bomb in HIS stomach, nobody would bitch. People need to stop complaining. Hard-hitting topics and themes are what games need to elevate to the next level, in the public eye anyway (I think they're already at the "it's more than just a game for kids" level, because I game, obviously).

Best article about the issue, more than just looking at the parts but at the whole.

An excellent article. I was impressed the author presented actual examples from franchise history rather than a general claim. Well written and thought provoking.

Here is a writer who actually knows what is going on with the series & the game as a whole. So tired of this gender specific arguments about violence in the game or any other game for that matter.

We had strong female characters in MGS but where were the articles talking about them? Did we forget Paz was a strong but psychotic women at the end of Peacewalker? I commend Kojima for pushing the boundaries of his games regardless of 'political' issues.
