That headline wasn't an exaggeration; Bethesda's Pete Hines literally shrugged on-camera when Polygon asked about criticism of the game's violence.
It was an appropriate, and in some ways powerful, response. Every game isn't for every gamer. There's little to be gained by interacting with someone who may argue that 50 Shades of Gray has too much sex; this wasn't a surprise. You are being given what you signed up for.
