LA Noire is an amazing technological and creative innovation, but for a female gamer, there's little doubt that it takes a skewed view of women.
It's supposed to be sexist. It's set in 1947.
was just about to say that, what did people expect, back then gender roles were very black and white, men went out and supported the families, women stayed at home and took care of everything else
I didn't even think IGN were that dumb Come on guys....how do you think women were treated back then. It's called learning from history.
When woman knew there place
When humanity knew how to spell.
It's the U.K. IGN... Just sayin'...
God, this article writer is so dense. Must be a woman.
NOthing to see here. Writer is a woman and apparently either really young and not a history buff or really old with bad memory.
IGN is owned by news corp, that explaines a lot
The better question is why isn't she in the damn kitchen? *duh dum tisssssk* I'll be here all week.
Boooo, you suck!
they had different drinking fountains for black people then as well....hard to believe how backward and screwed up things were just a few decades ago....
Haven't we gone over this? The time period of the game makes it sexist, it's supposed to be.
Apparently some people need a history lesson. Regardless if you agree with history or not is not the issue, the fact is this game takes place in post-WWII LA. After WWII women did take the role of the homemaker in response to servicemen coming back from a nightmarish war. The atomic family came to be because families wanted children to have a world without that nightmare and the men who did survive to be taken care of. That's not sexism, that's reality. Also, the civil rights movement did not happen until the 60s. Many don't realize but it was JFK along with Democrats in Congress/Senate who fought against equality for blacks. It would be silly to paint a picture of blacks in the late 40s as anything else then what it was. Again, not racism, that's reality.
Sorry this has nothing to do with the game. Talking of WWII history lessons and civil rights did you know when the American soldiers came to Britain during WWII the British Govenment where forced to adopt segregation in places frequented by American GI's and American bases so it wouldn't upset its allies and cause confrontation between soldiers on the street. But British civilians were more likely to stand up and defend the right of African Americans to occupy public spaces on equal terms. "I don’t mind the Yanks, but I don’t care much for the white fellows they’ve brought with them", was a quip that achieved wide circulation.
